Folks, we just tried to pay a visit here on Aug. 15, 2009 - and sadly it is closed. Unclear whether it's closed for good or (we hope) just for a renovation?

Emperor's New Clothes

Honestly - this is not the fantastic 'authentic Napoletana' pizza that some would claim. The ingredients may be authentic but the pizza should not be this bland and doughy. Add to this underwhelming experience the fact that the service is distracted at best. The prices are high - $21 for a 12'' - but don't let this fool you into thinking you are getting a quality product - the high price IS the product.

I am italian born and raised. we went to this place since luzzo was too packed we went in 8 italian guys... we never been trated worse in our life. the pizza is made from people who never been to Italy. it is the totaly pricy (21 dollars for asmall one...) and in top of all I ve asked some olive oil, which for me it is like soy sauce for sushi, and the guy said NO! DO NOT THINK THIS IS AN ITALIAN GOOD PIZZA BECAUSE IT IS NOT. and in top of all the rudest people I ever met in NY. dont go. rude people and full of themselves dont deserve to be in the business. sincerely.

Not a pizza

We had the most disgusting pizza ever at this place: salty, tasteless, partly burned base with more salty topping, including some rubbery mozarella. The whole thing (and whatever it is, this is not a pizza!) was drenched in oil! This is what baked bogey must taste like. We had to wait for more than an hour for the pizzas to arrive and the bill of $42 for two pizzas felt like daylight robbery! The staff was unprofessional when we complained.

Pure P.R. Driven Hype-Another Emperor Without Clothes

tons of p.r. driven hype claiming "best pizza/most authentic in NYC" . lines outside; bad attitude and service inside. weird vibe with a list of house rules; no toppings, no substitutions, no plates for sharing (?!) an angry tattooed psycho making the pies. first; sour wine served in a dirty utility glass. then; a soggy little disc laden with gummy cheese and too much salt and or garlic. totally unmemorable sauce. you lift the slice and the cheese slides right off and theres a puddle at the center leaving the crust wet. and the price; $21.00 for a 12" tiny plain margherita? are they kidding me? strangers at adjacent tables were commiserating over how bad a ripoff the place was and agreeing on how we had all been suckered. the tab; 2 mini pizzas, sodas/1 glass wine; around $75. Never again. leave this one for the tourists. btw if in the neighborhood and in the mood for some authentic italian style pizza but served with good service and fair prices, go around the corner to Luzzos on first and 13th. i have alot of friends who are italian expats and they all consider it their fave.

So much Hype

  • No, I would not go back!

After hearing so many rave reviews about the pizza, I went with a few friends. What a disappointment. The pizza had very little flavor both in the sauce and crust. We all had different pies and all of us were shocked at how poor the pies were, especially when considering the cost. I don't know what burnt-taste buds are eating here, but there are plenty of places in the surrounding area that offer a lot more. The staff (or owner) was pretty rude and arrogant. I understand the whole kitsch factor with characters like "the soup nazi"... but have something to back it up with.

Suffice it to say that I would go to basically any other pizza place in the City before I would ever go back here. The service is rude, the prices are outrageous and, after spending quite a sum, you're STILL hungry.

The pizza is overpriced, the service extremeley slow and rude. Pizza from Naples is supposed to be thin and crusty. This one was thick and chewy. I expect much more for a $17 pizza! I'll never go back again. Try Otto instead, that's a good value!

Never again

If you're into waiting 40 minutes in line then another 45 for your $17-per-person pizza, served with a side of attitude like you should be *honored* to eat here, then this is the place for you. Expect a wait even if you're the only people in here. Excellent pizza, but no way worth $50+ for two (incl. 1 drink each). Waitstaff is rude and incompetent and management is unprofessional when you call them on it.

  • No, I would not go back!

Listen, I love pizza and I know good pizza and this place has good pizza. BUT, there is something utterly disingenuous about this place, something false. Again, the food is tasty yes, but charging $25 per small individual sized pizza is ridiculous. It would be one thing if the room was amazing and evocative of the many southern Italian rustic wonders you can find when over there, and if the service was gracious, but especially in light of what seems to be the very little effort these guys put in - the wait, the cost, the likelihood that they will not be open, or not have the wine you want – this creates a feeling of being cheated, one that is absolutely not rectified by the pizza.
