A friend and colleague lives around the corner from here, and for a while he's been saying we had to go to Lucali. We finally had a chance to do so, and we went last night. All in all I'd say the pizza is very good. I see a ton of reviews on TripAdvisor claiming it's the best pizza they've... More

While this place is not for everyone, I love eating here! Go 1 hour before opening to put your name in. This will ensure that you eat during the first seating. Enjoy the neighborhood while waiting for the rest of your group to arrive. Buy a bottle of wine or some beers, since Lucali is BYOB (no corkage fee). Sit... More

Simply this is the best pizza Ive had. Arrived just after 6, and was told we would have to wait 1 hour for a table. No problem, went to the local bar and was called when our table was free. Straight forward menu, BYOD perfect. Shared a large pizza which was more than adequate - although now I am annoyed... More

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
