If you're a tourist and here for a short stay, this is off the beaten path and not worth wasting your time on. There are so many excellent restaurants in NYC that you can go to.
Surprisingly, the salads at this restaurant are better than the pizza. I had the escarole salad, which came with a light Caesar style dressing and the beets salad. The escarole salad came in a nice sized portion that is shareable, but the beets were a little on the skimpy side.
As far as the pizza goes, I've eaten pizza in many places and throughout Italy too. Yes, a little char is nice, but the char on these pizzas was too much. It overpowered the delicate flavors of the toppings (also skimpy) and I found myself fighting through the char to taste anything else.
We had the flambé, leeks and sausage and the regular sausage pie. I would rate the flambé as the best of the three. The leeks on the leek and sausage are just too bland to stand up to the char. The sauce on the sausage pie was ordinary. Two people can share a pie, however you'll need two pies to fill up. At $18 - $20 per pie, this can get pricey, together with salads and drinks. Yes, I know. This is "artisanal" pizza, but to charge so much money for more burnt bread, than anything else is a crime.
The lemonade, was called cucumber/mint, however it tasted more like a lemonade mix.
The place was packed. We waited 40 minutes for a table. The owner obviously knows what he's doing and minting money. Thank god for trust funds!
