“Good pizza, kind of pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We came here for lunch one weekday we had off. We really loved the food but we though that the prices were a little to steep forus. There are a lot of pizza places like this around tha tI think are just as good if not better, like Thin Crust places like Gruppo and Posto. The pizza did come out fast and was perfectly cooked. The space is a little tight but it is comfy. I dont think we will come here again if there is a wait.

“Lived up to Naples standards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

The pizza absolutely lived up to the hype. Mouth watering good. I will say however for the price of the wine it was a very small pour. The atmosphere was alright. But this is definitely not a place you go to for the atmosphere anyhow.

You must check this place out if you're a pizza lover!

“Great Pizza”

Great Pizza-excellent value. Very accommodating staff-we had a large party and they were able to fairly quickly able to handle our party. Pizza is really good-one of the best paces in NYC for pizza.

“Atmospheric & Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

I loved this restaurant. The ambient light coupled with the wood fire oven makes for a very cosy and intimate dining experience. Please order the meat balls and the Brussel Sprouts and Pancetta pizza! It is to die for. I know it doesn't sound good but don't knock it till you have tried it!
