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.

We were shopping in little Italy and I just happened to ask a local business owner where the best Italian food was and she said I eat at L'asso. We had lunch and the lady was right!! My family of 4 had a great lunch!! Thanks Greg

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

As part of the ethnic food tour we took in NY (4 regions and 4 restaurants), we stopped in at L'asso for a slice of thin crust pizza. The place is not very large but the staff is energetic and the pizza is delicious. Definitely a recommendation if you are in south Manhattan.

I recently traveled to NYC with a Celiac's sufferer. We stumbled upon L'asso via Yelp! looking for gluten free pizza. In solidarity with my sister-in-law I ordered gluten free, too (having never tried gluten free anything). It was really good! I sort of liked their gluten free pizza better than regular! L'asso has limited seating, but it has a great... More

We were on our last day in NY, but had some time to kill before leaving for the airport. My wife had a sudden yearning for some pasta, and a quick search threw up L'asso as an inexpensive but good option. I think it's fair to say we weren't disappointed! My wife had the aglio olio, while our daughter had... More

Met family and friends here on a glowing recommendation from a cousin. Cozy casual place. Nice servers. We arrived about 6 pm and the restaurant was pretty empty. They were already completely out of meatballs which was a staple in several dishes and what my two children had planned to order. Confusing how such an establishment can't whip up some... More

Don't be put off by the exterior of the restaurant! After reading a recommendation from a website we subscribe to we decided to try L'ASSO out. So pleased we did, organic ingredients and just soooo good. Pizza was presented to us in rectangle pans, good size portions and straight from the brick oven. All in all a great restaurant.

Great place to go for a pizza and a wine! Wood fired pizza with a twist. Staff were helpful and you didn't have to wait too long for food to arrive.
