Morningstar's space and menu have a real NYC feel. I came by a couple of times last week to get some pizza to go. The service was friendly, and i did not have to wait very long, and the pizzas lived up to their NYC...label.More

Came here last year and came back this year for Family gathering. We were not disappointed. The thin crusted pizzas were superb, The spaghetti & meatballs delicious& large, the shrimp scampi very tasty. Needless to say, ALL very good. Great waitress, fast, clean, friendly and...on the spot for everything. Next time on Lawrence we shall return again.More

Pizza was fantastic. I loved how they piled on the toppings. Crust was perfect. Could use maybe a little more sauce. Only reason I didn’t give them a 5 was because service was average. Not a lot of people in the restaurant and it took...a little time to be helped. Overall, you need to try the pizza. Excellent!!! I will be back.More

Delicious, flavorful pizza in the best traditional New York style. I love this place and it’s consistently fine pizza.

We were just passing through Lawrence and saw the signage and decided to go in. All the seats were taken but a couple offered to share their table. Thank you locals! The place has character, it's not a chain and we liked that. We had...the NY pizza and it's pretty close to what I am used to in NY -- good crust, nice sauce and cheese. We also split a house salad and it was crisp and great blue cheese dressing. They also serve wine and beer. Good prices too, not NY! You don't get a particular server, and a procession of people came to the table asking for our order and we were served by just about everyone working there in the front, including the cashier and I guess the owner. I found that a bit confusing, but it all added to the atmosphere. If in Lawrence and you are looking for some "real" pizza, give these folks a try.More

We ordered carry out from Morningstar on a Saturday night during bad weather. Our pizzas were ready in about 30 minutes (4 large pizzas and a 2 orders of garlic knots). This was our first experience with this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. We ordered...1 cheese, 2 pepperoni/sausage and 1 BBQ chicken. The pizzas were great! The BBQ Chicken pizza isn't what we expected, but not that it wasn't good. Just not up to our liking. The other pizzas were great. The garlic knots were also very good. I would recommend Morningstar NY Pizza to family and friends visiting West Lawrence.More

The best pizza in town! Tons of options on the menu. Sandwiches & pastas are wonderful. The calzones are amazing. Everything is fresh, hot and delicious. The prices will amaze you - tons of food & a great value. The service is excellent and friendly....If you’ve not tried this place, run, don’t walk! There are lots of pizza choices nearby - but this is the tops and locally owned.More

This was our first time here after living in Lawrence for almost two years...we are upset that we have not been here sooner. This is a pizza place out of your childhood...wonderful food, great staff. We will be regulars from now on. Well done Morningstar!
