“Real italian Food!!!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The restaurant is located at the second floor of a building on 38 str. Although you might not like the first image of it, make yourself a little courage and sit. It seems a little small and could be noisy when it's full...
But hey, why are you here? Food! And the food is unbelievable good, the best Carbonara pasta in NY so far, pizza in real Italian style! Delicious!
If I really want something Italian, for sure I'll come back here!

“Great pizza!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stumbled upon this place as we were looking for somewhere to eat lunch near Times Square. So glad we did! We had the lasagna pizza with ricotta cheese, ground beef, and red sauce and it was divine! The crust was nice and crispy, the cheese was hot, and everything tasted delicious. I would definitely go back.

“Puts all the rest to shame”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Tony's family has gotten pizza right for a very long time and it's no wonder there's a wait at lunchtime. NO ONE make pizza like Lazzara's.

“Great crust on pizza”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Great waiter, slow water filling by bus lady, delicious white pizza. Strange interior...kind of cool ill old school, but weird clutter and kept hearing the beeping sound of smoke alarm battery needing to be changed.

“hidden gem”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I had 1 hour to eat before jumping on a train at Penn Station - midtown is full of mediocre places, but luckily I came across Lazzara's on TripAdvisor. The eggplant napoleon was shockingly good, especially when you consider it was early March and there was no locally available veg. The pizza was unlike anything I've had in NYC... more reminiscent of something you would find in a village in Italy (not Naples, though). And the interior reinforced all these feelings...
