Whenever you find yourself in Ft Grerne, Brooklyn, take a little hike down DeKalb to Hall /DeKalb and get yourself a slice of thin crispy perfect pizza at Luigi’s! When I’m out of state, I literally dream about it. My fave is vegetarian, but Canadian...Bacon and Pineapple is excellent and just a plain old slice is mouth-watering. No one compares and I’m a New Yorker for four decades. A veggie slice just under 5 bucks, post-pandemic. A haven for the Pratt Institute crowd. YUM❤️More

Our tour guide said they had the best pizza... she was right!! Amazing pizza 🍕 🙌🏻 I didn’t even care that you can’t sit down. Took our pizza to the rose garden on campus and enjoyed it.

Only take-away possible but the it is worth coming over to pick up your choice. Not so expensive and it is very tasty.

This was my pizza place when I lived in Brooklyn. I like many customers, dont live in NY but when I do come to visit I make it a point to eat here. The pizza is like no other place.

Taste as good as Grimaldy's and Johns Pizzeria. This place is amazing! Only take aways, counter service, straight from the oven and only at $3.50 a slice. Located at Dekalb near Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. My go-to food and it works all the time.

I've lived just a few blocks from Luigi's for nearly 15 years. (That's a long time, now that I see it in writing.) I am a local, and don't have any particular desire for non-locals to be clogging up my favorite pizza place. However, when...something's good it's good to share it, so here I am reviewing Luigi's on Dekalb Ave in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. I'm 44 years old and have had a lot of pizza in my life, here in New York City, in Brooklyn, in Rome, Italy, and lotsa other places. While there may be places that make pizza as good, there are few places, anywhere, that make it better. Plain, toppings, Sicilian, doesn't matter. It's counter service, no sit down area, and there's no deliveries. That's right, the pizza is so good they don't have to provide seats, and you have to come get it yourself. I can suggest that you take your slices across the street to Pratt Institute, have a seat by their cannon (yes, they have a real cannon), and you can eat while checking out the sculpture garden (it's an art and design institute). I'm fortunate to live in a diverse neighborhood, and if you go to Luigi's don't be surprised to find yourself in line as part of a "United Colors of Benetton" ad. Everyone knows Luigi's is good. Now you do too.More

Walking up to a window & ordering a slice of NYC pizza & eating over a large flower planter? What could be better! Great experience & a great value--7.80$ for 2 slices & a Pepsi!! If your near here, don't miss it!

In the pratt neighbourhood. This slice of pizza kept me going when i was a graduate student at the pratt institute in clinton hill in brooklyn, And 12 yrs later it still packs a punch, fresh out of the oven its a slice of heaven....This is a stand and eat or takeaway place so dont go expecting to sit down with knifes and forks. Grab your slice and head out. My favorite us the hawaian pizza with pineapple and bacon. Heaven!!!!!!! Try the peppeoroni too my wife swears by it.More

Take out a dictionary. Look up "hole in the wall". See picture of Luigi's!!! Unbelievable pizza. You could not find a smaller place to get great food. An old time, stand up at the counter, food joint. Kind of like a food truck, but in...a building. Really great pizza. Just outside the Hall Street gate of Pratt Institute.More

Wow! Walked half block from friend's home for the tastiest pizza. She sent me over to order, just telling them what I wanted on it. Didn't know it would be some of the best pizza I've ever had. I thought she was sending me to...a sit down Italian restaurant. Surprise! Walk up to window of the roll up bay and order. Ten minutes, paid and on the way back the half block to eat! Wouldn't go anywhere else for pizza if I lived near!More

We stayed in Fort Greene and heard about the place from a friend in Denver who used to live in Brooklyn. Very legit slices! My daughter had the traditional but I tried the Buffalo chicken slice (don't laugh, it is outstanding!) We ended up bringing...a pie upstate with us in the car the next day and there was not a lot leftover by the time we passed Woodstock!More

This is the pizza I remember growing up with as a little girl, living in New York. Haven't had any REAL pizza since I left NY. When I came up from Florida to visit my son in Brooklyn, the first place he took me was...3 Luigi's in Clinton Hill. It's his favorite pizza joint too. It got him through Grad School at Pratt. Now I have 2 reasons to get back up to Brooklyn!More
