“My favorite pizza in New York”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

New York has the best pizza in the country and this is one of the best in the city. The pizza is mouthwatering and they have many variations/toppings. My favorite is the Margherita but the white pizzas are delicious too. For such a small place the wait is not too bad. The service is fast so you are in and out quickly.

“amazing pizza”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

we had lunch here, and came in late in the lunch hour on a workday. The pizza was outstanding -- puffy edge crust with a thin bottom crust, charred edges but not overly so, with a nice chew to the crust. I had a margherita with prosciutto, and my wife had the sausage pizza. Very, very high quality ingredients throughout -- the mozzarella was the best I have ever had on a pizza, absolutely fresh, and the prosciutto was lean. Very good wine options, reasonably priced by the glass and even more so by the half-liter. Service is prompt and professional, and didn't show some of the signs of wear that might be expected on a brutally hot NYC day late in the lunch hour. Parking is of course hellish. Kids should be reasonably happy here. Server gave good advice about where to find good local gelato.

“Incredible, memorable pizza, made our 1st night in city dreamy”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Never had such good pizza. The four of us inhaled three different variations but the arugula topped one was the best. Super quick service too. Will dream about Napoli pizza at Keste now forever.

“Best gluten free pizza”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant after trying to search for good gluten free restaurants in New York that had stuff both of us could eat - both gluten free and not. This was definitely the best gf pizza I have ever eaten! The crust was delicious and cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the regular crust and also said it was delicious. The restaurant is very small and we got there early - we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table but by the time we were leaving there was quite a large line. Service was fast and friendly. By far the best gf pizza I have had and hope to get back there again someday!

“Good pizza, service questionable”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Great pizza but the service was a little pushy. We were contemplating getting some wine and the server was trying to push us towards a bottle that was more expenseive, really selling it hard. We opted out because we felt pressured and ended up with just water and going to a bar around the corner afterwards. We will go back for the pizza though!
