“A little gem tucked around the back of Port Authority”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled across this place after a cold walk from the Cutting Room on East 32nd. Hungry and thirsty and in need of some TLC (Ronnie Wood only played an hour) this little place did not disappoint. Small, narrow and busy but the friendly staff made us feel very welcome. Restaurants with a purpose and a heritage don't usually disappoint. The heritage of the owners is a part of the menu and told with pride by the staff. Their specialty are thin crust pizzas and they don't disappoint. We had the Prosciutto and Arugula and it was delicious. Washed down with a glass of Shiraz it was the perfect combination. All glasses of red wine are priced at $8.00 so it takes the decision rightly right down to what tastes best for you. A satisfying meal, presented with love in a relaxing atmosphere leaving us to ponder one question. Will Keith join Ronnie and Mick this weekend? By the time you read this the answer will probably be apparent.

“Best pizza in New York City”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

What a delight! Located near our hotel on West 40th St., we picked up a flyer on our first day and couldn't resist to go back.
Located in 'Hell's Kitchen' on 9th in Midtown, it has a very authentic Italian pizzeria feel. A cosy and warming atmosphere awaits in a small restaurant, which seats only
around 30.
The pizza was truly stunning, with a sort of 'create your own' option available the choice is endless. The ingredients were obviously fresh, and the mozzarella was marvellous. Waiting staff were very friendly also.

All the family devoured their chosen pizza and we had a great time at Capizzi's. A must for anyone searching for authentic pizza in NYC.

“Good pizza”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Good pizza, nice little building with a brick fire pizza oven, very friendly workers that are always checking back with you. It looks like it always busy, but they do good job of accommodating people who come in. Must be a good date restaurant as there were quite a few couples eating.
After coming across some restaurants who don't really seem to care if you are there, they are nice here and thank you for coming. I would and will come back

“Wonderful pizzeria close to the theaters”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

On a recent visit to NY to take in a play, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Capizzi. It is conveniently located near the theaters. The menu consists of only pizzas, salads, a few apps., and desserts. It is a small, very clean, authentic Italian pizzeria restaurant. We arrived around 6:00 pm, on a Sunday evening, and there was no wait. It did fill quickly, but there was still no waiting when we left. There is a large variety of pizzas made with fresh ingredients in a brick oven. We tried two different kinds, and they were thin crust and delicious. I feel the price of the personal pizzas and also the bottles of wine were a little on the high side. A shared cannoli was the perfect ending to a great meal, and was nicely presented.The decor is quaint and homey. and the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly.The servers were professional, helpful and pleasant. The pizza maker, who I believe is the owner, entertained two young children, by tossing the pizza and doing other tricks. He even gave them some dough of their own to practice with. All in all, we had a wonderful evening and would recommend this restaurant.
