We live within walking distance so we like to order it for pick-up. Atmosphere is not our thing, but the pizza excellent! While pie is the best I've ever had, and the crust has just enough crunch.

Ate here with friends and had an almost 2 hour wait time. Not being a huge fan of pizza, this place was amazing! The toppings are fresh/daily and the ambience is nice with BYOB. 100% coming here again.

Took the subway from Manhattan and then walked back over the Brooklyn bridge. Excellent experience for a couple of tourists from MN! We were encouraged to try this place by some locals and they were right on the money. We shared two calzones which were perfectly crusty, cheesy deliciousness and filled them with different toppings. Shared the leftovers with a... More

Have been to Brooklyn 4 times & never got a table here, made plenty time to get here early to put our name on the list & come back an hour later armed with a nice bottle of Italian red. Lovely romantic vibe, like an old style Sicilian restaurant where you would meet the family. The staff were very helpful... More

Wood fire cooked pizza and calzone. Great pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and plenty of fresh basil. Calzone was ordered with protabella mushroom. More than enough for the four of us. Cash ONLY.

No reservations, so go very early (around 5 pm) give the reservations person your name and go for a walk until the allotted time. There is only one size of pizza ($24.00) and toppings are extra. Not a whole lot of toppings: onions, hot peppers, sweet peppers, mushrooms, beef chorizo - think that's all. No alcohol - BYOB if you... More

It only does pizza (or calzone) and there aren't many choices, but what they do serve is great and service is great too. You can't book ahead and you need to bring your own drinks.

This is the best pizza I've ever had. I ate here early 2015 and have never been able to forget how delicious this pizza is. Not only is the pizza made right in front of you, but it's made by the owner himself, and he also drops it off to your table. The ambiance in this restaurant is so romantic... More

You'll get a lot of people claiming that this place or that place is the best pizza in NY. Most of the places commonly cited as being the best make very similar pies, but of them all, Lucali's is hands down the best. The ingredients are the freshest around, and if they run out of something, they're out of it.... More
