This is the best pizza I've ever had. I ate here early 2015 and have never been able to forget how delicious this pizza is. Not only is the pizza made right in front of you, but it's made by the owner himself, and he also drops it off to your table. The ambiance in this restaurant is so romantic... read more

You'll get a lot of people claiming that this place or that place is the best pizza in NY. Most of the places commonly cited as being the best make very similar pies, but of them all, Lucali's is hands down the best. The ingredients are the freshest around, and if they run out of something, they're out of it.... More

Waited over an hour to get our table but it was well worth it. Staff was attentive and very friendly. Overall atmosphere was cozy and warm with music playing in the background and glowing candles. The crust on the pies was crunchy, oh so thin and charred perfectly. The sauce sweet and the cheese gooey. Yum! Most of the toppings... More

Having read the reviews and not being able to get in on a weekend without a ridiculous wait, we went on a weeknight and arrived before opening. They took my name, and we returned at the opening time and were promptly seated. On the plus side, the ambience was fabulous; candlelight and twinkling lights on evergreen wreaths (probably remaining from... More

Marc doesn't need the Juice, I'm taking this review for a ride. The only thing I can say is check it out for yourself.

Lucali is the ULTIMATE pizza joint. All they serve is pizza and calzone. Bring your own wine... Best pizza I have ever had in my life. It cannot be beat. Ambience is incredible. Lights are low, music is playing... Waitresses are sweet, Mark is a gentleman Good luck getting a table!

Try as we could, we never seemed to be able to time getting to Lucali so as to avoid a 2+ hour wait. No reservations, but they will take your phone#. But, we were able to get a take out order (90' wait!) and I must say that the pizza was so good (even as take out) that we will... More

Holy delicious phenomenal pizza batman!! My husband and I have been dying to come here after hearing about this place from friends, recommendations from blogs and restaurant critics, and celebrities who frequent. We read reviews and knew we needed to get here about an hour before it opened if we wanted the first seating. We walked over and anxiously got... More

We got to Lucali a couple minutes after it opened at 6:00 pm, but did not get our table until 9:30 ... which of course is a very long wait. I will say we thought it was worth the wait. We had heard so many great things about the pizza we really wanted to try it. We brought our own... More

Wanted to try this restaurant after reading good things about it and seeing that David Beckham tried it. Arrived around 5:30 pm on a Saturday since I knew they don't accept reservations and was hoping to get our name on the list for a 6 pm seating. Sure enough, we got the last table. There didn't seem to be a... More
