you know a place is a true foodie spot when you one of new york magazines top critics sitting next to you with his family, not reviewing but downing some great foie gras, working at NY MAG for a summer helped me uncover these kind of places, love the wild boar lasagna, and love the risotto... such a great room to.

wonderful refreshing food, lovely little cozy room, not what you would expect down here, they take their service and wine very serious, nice to see, great meatballs with veal meat and the wild boar lasagna is very good,

The food at Apizz is very good, but the service is what makes it outstanding. I threw a surprise birthday party for a pizza-holic and the staff was incredible. The menu was appropriate even for those who aren't pizza-fiends and the arrangements and suggestions were fantastic! You can even find parking nearby--what else is there???
CHEF AND OWNER A GREAT COMBO FOR A RESTAURANT
By jennjenn on 12/23/2003
when you hear the owner is also the chef at least you know he is going to care about the food, most of the time, and this guy does!! the place is so warm and cozy, and its a small room with friendly people and the most amazing food. i cant belive what is coming out of this huge brick oven, the lasagna of wild boar is incredible, and i dont eat game like that, and the ravioli with butternut squash is divine, this guy takes pride in his cooking its obvious,,loved it much, now do one on the upper eastside for us....

it started with us waiting for a table about 20 min on sat. night , which was fine because they made up for it buy sending us these great antipasto plates, some with cheese and some with meats, really enjoyed them, all our entrees where great, the wild boar lasagna seemed to be the favorite, i liked the stuffed ricotta meatballs the best, also the pizza made a nice middle course for our large party, would definetly recomend it to you.
Great food, bad location

The pizza here was great quality and not too pricey. The service was prompt and the food tasted great. Nice casual place for dinner with a close friend or a loved one. Romantic and rustic atmosphere, serves to be the same for the food. The giant oven in the already crowded restaurant is warm and inviting, though I warn you if your not comfortable in tight courters, I would pass. The tables are very close together, so conversations are shared through out the room. It's a little too small for my comfort level, but the food makes up for it. Nothing compares to Lombardi's for pizza, but this is a close 4'th. Only problem, the location is awful to get to by subway and not nice to walk around. I went with my father and sister (in the winter time) and as we were leaving there were a group of "locals" hanging out on the corner, yada yada yada, my dad almost got into a fist fight. Some advice..men- keep your women close when leaving the restaurant late at night.
feels like a private food club...

you know all the people here know the owner, there is no way they could ever find it, i really enjoyed the pizza, and most of our entrees where outstanding, very reasonable, and large portions a plus...
this place just got really good, why....
By joecool on 9/8/2003
the first time we tried it here it was just good, good pizza and good food, now they tell us some of the changes where made from a new owner or chef , we coulnt get the storie straight but whatever the case it was incredible, i mean the skate fish in a white wine and butter sauce is as good as it gets, they definetly changed their pizza because it was incredible, i really was truley impressed and will be back, and not because it is 1 block away,,,,
some really good food in a great place,,
