“Nice place, but okay food”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Maybe I am a bit biased with my pizza tastes, but I have to say that the pizza was just okay, considering that Lombardi's is the supposed birthplace of NY style pizza. I had a order to go and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful (especially the people making the pizza when I took their photo). The pizza itself was a little heavy on the sauce and the crust a bit rubbery. The cheese and toppings were very fresh and delicious. Give it a try though, maybe it is more to your taste than mine.

“Great pizza and atmosphere”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The service and food was great. Probably the best pizza's i've had outside italy. We arrived at a peak time over the holidays and it was very busy so you might wait for quite a while (30-45mins) but the food is worth it.

“Coal fired pizza in Nolita”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This establishment bills itself as the original pizza place in New York. A testament to the quality of the food was that it was jam-packed on a nice summer day in Nolita. The service was friendly, the pizza was tasty, and the price was reasonable.

“The real thing”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

A pizzeria whose oven has been cooking for over 100 years, where pizzas are served without frills, the real thing, in an unpretentious, relaxing environment, and where you can visit the kitchen to see where the action is. Another New York experience.
