We were nicely treated by this lovely waitress. She even took some pictures of us while we were starting our antipasti plate for starter. The antipasti however was not that impressive, they take canned muchrooms, and not the original parma ham (which is a protected brand NB!). But it tasted good. We ordered a nice bottle of red wine. The pizza was outstanding however! I ordered the "parma" ham pizza and ate it to the last crumble! The ambience in this place is very nice, small but not cramped, the staff is very attentive. I must admit this was one of the nicest dinners we had in our 2 week stay in town.

Our first impression was the nostalgic décor; a throw back some fifty years or more. The water was served from a bottle and the napkins resembled dish clothes from my grandma's house. The brick oven stood in the background behind lines of hanging herbs and hot pepper.

There were numerous choices of toppings for the personal sized pizzas. Many offered top quality ingredients including San Marzano, Prosciutto di Parma, hot pepper infused olive oil, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and the best pancetta topped pizza I ever had.

Service was very good and friendly. Overall the experience was great and the only criticism I have is that the cost was a bit expensive considering regular pizza's across the street were selling for considerably less. The area is a bit seedy, but is a short walk from 42nd street and Broadway. I would definitely recommend this place and return if I were nearby.

We ate here on our last night in NYC on April 6th. We had not researched it prior and lucked out. It was a quaint little place with great staff, great employees and great food for our $$.

We came across Capizzi as we wanted something close to the hotel on a cold, wet evening.
We were not disappointed with the find! Lovely food, fresh ingredients and a nice glass of red were very welcoming as were the hosts. Would recommend to anyone wanting a traditional pizza in the heart of NYC.

Nice pizza but way more expensive than it should be. Service was good and had a good atmosphere but I wouldn't go back at that price.
