We love Lucali and are so excited that they are open again after being closed for renovations! They have the most delicious pizza around, we love taking our family and friends visiting us in NYC to Lucali for a real Brooklyn treat. The ingredients are super fresh and you have to love the BYOB option. Don't forget the ask for extra marinara sauce to go with the crispy crust leftover at the end.

I give it a 5 all across the board!! I wasnt even turned off by the long (extremely long) wait, or the fact that its BYOB, or the fact that there's no ice in my water. The one thing I clearly remember is how painstakingly delicious this pizza was. Everything about it was perfection. Hence the reason we ate here so often in our trip to NY :)

Are they the best? Go and taste for yourself...I luv their pizza...if you like burnt thin crust with fresh quality toppings...you won't be disappointed. Byob...just around at the corner store. Yup do get there early...much shorter line ups. Can't wait to go back. Soooo good!

Things you should know before you go. First, bring wine since its BYOB. Second, be prepared for a wait since they do not take reservations. Finally, be ready for a limited menu of pizza or calzone. Each pizza is handmade with fresh ingredients and well worth the wait. Easily the best pizza we've had in Brooklyn!

BYOB, BYOB, BYOB. That is very important. Second piece of major importance is that they do not take reservations. They open at 5pm to start taking reservations for 6pm. If you show up by 5:30pm you should be able to get the first seating. Relax outside for 30 mins and work up an appetite. 5 people max if you want a table but parties of 2 get seated quicker than larger parties.

Only two options and I suggest you get both and yes you want leftovers. You can only have pizza or calzone and then they list the ingredients of the day. Anything you order will be some of the pizza or calzone you have ever eaten in your life. Guaranteed.

CASH ONLY
