My friend and I were heading home after a night of drinking, and we came across this place. All we ordered was a slice each. I swear this was THE BEST PIZZA I've ever eaten. The place was busy, as it was Friday night, and the woman refered to in other reviews was shouting orders, but it was a fun... More

Pizza was delicious. As we've come to expect with NYC, portions are large so between the 2 of us we shared a salad starter (buffalo chicken and blue cheese) and a large pizza (Toni Roni). This was definitely enough and both were very tasty and the pizza excellent!!!! I understand how some people might not like the manager but we... More

My way to judge a good Italian restaurant is by spaghetti and meatballs and these were superb. Meatballs the size of softballs. Tasty - juicy - tender. Fresh pasta and excellent sauce. Didn't need cheese or anything else which would have masked the flavors. Lady in charge is a hoot !!

We had finished the Circle Line Tours, opted to walk to 5th Avenue from the Pier. We got lucky, and walked onto the corner and saw this place. We had lunch, and it was incredible. Calamari, Pizza, and Pasta. We'll be back to visit next time for sure. Highly recommend.

My 10 year old and I were looking for pizza while mom was at a show. Pizza was awesome, atmosphere was great and non overly crowded. The beer taps didn't work when we first got there, but had them working half way through dinner. Waitress wasn't the best in service but you will never find more attitude and authentic Italian...

Stopped in for a few slices and a couple of glasses of wine. Were treated to great pizza (expected) and and extra glass of wine each (on the house & unexpected). The Sicilian lady who (owns/works) there was in a good mood. A regular stop for us when in NYC.

Went here for a quick bite to eat in the evening. Food was lovely and after reading the reviews of the manager quickly identified her. Not the best at customer service but her overall nature of running the show was hilarious to watch. Would recommend as more of a take out than eat in

We loved the Chicken Marsala pizza! The woman waiting on us was hysterical. My husbands beer was very cold...the array of available pizza options was amazing. Hard to choose just one!

This has become 'our go to" place for lunch before we see an afternoon show. The pizza is amazing!! I have read other reviews of how "rude" some of the staff is but I have NEVER encounter this while visiting here. The Grandma Pie is my favorite and the Sicilian was my boyfriends. I really want to try some of... More

We basically come here every time we visit the Big Apple because of Caramella, the super friendly wait person, consistent food, and reasonable prices; especially when you consider it's within walking distance of Broadway shows.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
