This is a tiny little place with a brick oven for pizza. The food, though, was really really good. On the corner of Mott and Kenmare in Soho. I'd definitely recommend it.

2nd time visiting. My 13 year old actually remembered it from several years back and wanted to revisit. We did the $20 lunch special with a small margherita pizza and salad. Wonderful brick oven pizza. Excellent service.

Ate here as we couldn't get into lombardis, but we weren't disappointed. Pizza was light and delicious, and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Our waitress was attentive and genuinely friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Go to L'asso and definitely try the pizza! There is a variety of traditionnal or creative flavors. We didn't have a reservation, so we sat at the bar until a table was available. The wait was only about 10 minutes. It was well worth the wait! We tried each a different kind, and everybody found their selection to be heavenly.... More

Unique ambiance! Just the way i imagined an Italian restaurant in New York would be! Great pizza and pasta! Staff are friendly and laid back. Nice NYC crowd here. Not touristy, thank goodness, at least when i was there. nice walk through Manhattan to reach it. The overall experience was definitely awesome!

This thin-crust pizza is the best I have ever had. Some thin crusts have the flavor and texture of cardboard, but this was soft so that you could fold a slice in half and eat it like a warm little sandwich. Excellent tomato sauce and cheese. Friendly and helpful staff. My only complaint would be the very loud music.

L'asso serves the best pizza, even the simplest on (organic tomatoe, buffala mozzarella and origano is fantastic.

I randomly dropped by this tiny restaurant and was completely knocked out by the quality. Perfect pizza down to the tiniest detail. Definitely worth a visit.

A hidden gem that we stumbled across on our first evening in NYC. Is located right around the corner from the hotel we stayed at (SoHotel). Best pizza and pasta we've ever had. We ended up eating here 3 times in 4 days it is THAT good. Service was great too. Not cheap, but nothing in NYC is. Will be... More
