We visited here from UK, found the place from searching on trip advisor. A little out of the way from where we were staying and an area we were not too sure about (didn’t feel all that safe walking around) - but the ambiance, food,...More

This is top quality and very authentic Italian pizza. Anyone who tells you otherwise does not know what they are talking about. Great beer list as well.

This place has a great feel and great pizza. It is located on the sub-street level of a brownstone on Lenox, so kind of easy to miss if you aren't careful. Get the salsiccia (italian sausage) if you are a carnivore - it is delicious....More

Hard to find good GF pizza but this place does it right. The regular pizza is excellent too. Thin crust, fresh quality ingredients. A must when in Harlem.

The first thing to say is that this is not the #3 restaurant in NYC. However, it is a good pizzeria. Good options, good size for the (individual) pizza, good dough, cordial service. I will go there again.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and

Sottocasa in Brooklyn is open for lunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. I’ve definitely seen groups of 7-10 there before, probably in the back patio or the big long table in the main room. Always best to call ahead for a... More
