Profile

Basil Brick Oven Pizza has all the markings of a well-loved neighborhood pizza joint. There are stacks of delivery boxes up front, televisions mounted high in the corners of the brick walls, and, most tellingly, tables of families, small groups, and dates humming with conversation. Begin your own meal with the Chef’s Tasting appetizer, a substantial wooden board of prosciutto, salami, green Castelvetrano olives, imported buffalo mozzarella, and salty caciocavallo cheese. That should help steel you against choice fatigue as you consider the rest of the menu, as Basil Brick Oven offers 37 different thin-crust Neapolitan-style pies. There are the classics — Margherita, Bianca, Napolitana — but don’t count out the house creations, like the Carbonara, which emulates the pasta dish with a rich, eggy cream sauce and bacon, or the Speck and Brie, which layers wide ribbons of cured ham over generous slices of the mild French cheese. Crusts are nicely charred, with a faintly sour flavor and a good chew while the tomato sauce is simple and straightforward. Astoria certainly isn’t lacking for good grub options — arepas or souvlaki, anyone? — but another good pizza spot is never a bad thing.
