“Excellent fare, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Five of us escaped a rainy NYC afternoon to a nearby Starbucks and spotted this place from Tripadvisor. Having missed lunch, we were ravenous and when the downpour had ran it's course, we went for it. Much to our surprise we found the restaurant empty, but still decided to risk it (breaking the #1 rule of tourism).
The guys running Capizzi made us feel welcome and the restaurant was spotless.
The Italian style pizza was near perfect, leaf-thin crust with fresh high quality imported tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil. Service was attentive, but not too in-your-face. Great experience overall.

“Cozy Capizzi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We wanted a true Italian experience and that is what we got! My sister and daughter are real foodies so our NYC weekend was all about the restaurants! Capizzi was small,quaint and cozy. We had to ask a policeman for directions,he told us he eats there all the time and it was a good choice! He was right, the food,service,wine and atmosphere was excellent.Grazie to the owners!

“Top shelf pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

While there are hundreds of places to eat pizza in New York, We've been lucky enough to find yet another restaurant that is excellent. Upon entering, you see maybe 10 or 12 tables, about half of them seat 2 people. My immediate thought was how good can this be? We found out in a hurry how good. This pizza is excellent. The authenticity of these New York restaurants is remarkable, no matter what kind of food you eat.Everyone is very friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. Go there.

“Honest and considerate owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We visited Capizzi in March and I wrote a review praising their service and excellent food in a quaint dining environment. I stated that we were over charged in our review. I must do another entry to state that the owner read my review and emailed me to apologize. He very graciously sent us a gift card for MORE than the over charge to use the next time we visit NYC. I highly recommend Capizzi for the wonderful food and for the fantastic way they responded to a mistake. Be sure to make Capizzi a "must do" when you visit NY.
