We tried to go to Lombardis, but the time to wait was at least 45 min, we found this amazing place, little tiny, but so cozy and absolutely Italian. The wine was good, the atmosphere great, the service very good and the most important, the food was excellent! We Absolutely recommend this place to eat instead of Lombardis.

Be advised that the place is cozy - less than 50 seats. We stopped in on a Friday night with no reservation, so waited for a table for about 25 minutes. We were seated with (unnecessary) apologies for the wait, then enjoyed one of the best pizzas I can remember. Half DOC Margherita, half Culo di Porko. The prices were... More

Sometimes you hit on a great little spot located where you would not suspect. This is L'asso. We happened across a deal in Travel Zoo. It seemed close enough to where we were staying and sighed up for it. We were delighted. The hostess offered us seats right in front of the pizza chefs. They were brilliant. They kept us... More

This was our first meal in NYC and it was amazing. They offer gluten free options and the crust is wonderful. For our party of 4, we ordered 4 of the 12" pizzas based on the recommendation of the waitress. Two pizzas would have sufficed but then there would not have been any leftovers. The pear/Gorgonzola pizza was very tasty... More

The place is small but nice. The service is good and the pizza is adorable. Simple, very thin but very tasty. The price is good. And on the outside wall there are amazing wings painted on it, you should take a Picture!

The food here is fresh, delicious, and creative. Salads are superb, and the pizza never fails to impress me. (I'm a city boy, and have eaten pizza as far back as my memory goes!!)

I went here with my mother and we almost passed this restaurant because of the dodgy fellow sitting in front of it. But that was too prejudiced of us, because once inside the atmosphere was excellent. For lovely staff and delicious thin crust pizza, definitely stop here!

The pizza here is thin crust. Our favorite is the vegetarian (verdura pizza) with no cheese. They also have a very good margarita. The pizzas come in 3 sizes. Once you get to the big size you get the pizza rectangular shaped. The service is friendly and fast. They also have very good bruschetta and pasta. Go here for authentic... More

We had to look for a while but found this gem off the beaten path but it is worth the walk. Price was a little high but that is the Gluten Free curse. Some of the best G-Free pizza we have eaten. Opt for the New York tap water as coke is very expensive for the little bottle you get.

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
