“When the moon hits your eye”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This place is great. The bruschetta was amazing, the pizza was what happiness must taste like, and the staff were characterful. No expense spent on the decor but that's not really what it's about. Will definitely go back on my next trip to NYC.

“Don't miss this "hole in the wall"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

One of the only places that makes me want you eat a whole 16" pizza, by myself!!
I have discovered that I DO NOT the classic "ny pizza". BUT, my favorite pizza place IS in NYC!! Luzzo's offers classic Italian style pizza.

It's a laid back, dine in place, CASH ONLY, with a small bar! We go every time we are in town and are NEVER disappointed!

“Good food, good service - very popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We were there last night - a Saturday night with a group of about 12 message- board people. Our friend had reserved several weeks in advance. For us, it was about the conversation more than the food. I looked at some of the nearby tables, and saw that everyone was having a good time. It's a good place to meet.

“N.Y. Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is what a New York pizza should be, incedible crust, good sauce, and even better cheese. Toss in the coal fired oven then baking it to perfection, wash it down with a glass of red and you have a sublime New York moment.

“Love this pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Fell in love with this pizza on my first trip to NYC 5 yrs ago. Recently had it again and it was just as good. I love the Buffalo mozzarella and the sauce! Unfortunately we don't have pizza places with coal ovens at home so we try to recreate it at home. Service was great as well - family friendly (we had 3 kids with us).
