For fabulous thin crust pizza, this place is a must. Walking by it, you would never stop in to eat, but you must! The restaurant is on the second flood and is rather small. It could get noisy fast, but you won't care because you will be too busy enjoying the food. I had a margarita pizza and my co-worker had a pepperoni pizza. We started with garlic squares and they were outstanding. We will visit this place again very soon!

A group of 5 of us walked to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. It was a rainy night and we had just arrived in town and looked forward to some real NY pizza. We had a veggie pizza, large side salad and side order of meatballs. The pizza was delicious - crispy crust and lots of toppings. The meatballs were delicious and also the sauce in the bowl was good. The salad was fresh, crispy and was perfect with the pizza.

Service was fast - we were the only people in the place because it was only 5 p.m. - but it was fast nevertheless.

When you enter up the stairs to the 2nd floor, walk to the back of the hallway. When we first arrived in the foyer we were not sure exactly where to locate the doorway.

I'm here all the time. Probably twice a month and it NEVER disappoints. When you first go in, or see the sign, you might be skeptical of how it could be one of the best pizza joints in NYC; but most definitely stay! The pizza is so good and is why I keep coming back. If you're in town, going to MSG, or just looking for some good pizza...this won't disappoint.

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!

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.
