Best pizza I have ever tasted! Can't say enough fabulous things about GONZO - and the chef is very friendly! Only negative is that it's tough to get a table. Must remember to reserve early.

OVERALL A VERY ENJOYABLE DINING EXPERIENCE.PIZZAS AND APPETIZERS WERE GREAT..MAIN COURSE WAS A LITTLE SKIMPY AND ALL THE SIDES ARE ALA CARTE--BUT YOU WILL PROBABLY BE FULL BY TIME YOU GET TO MAIN COURSE..GETS A LITTLE NOISY BUT A HAPPENING PLACE.
Cheap ticket to Italy

I know it sounds corny but Gonzo is one of those places where the food is so tasty you really feel you have left US soil. The pizza crust is thin and yet not dry nor crusty, the basilic so fresh I think they must grow it in the back and the mozarella so flavourful that I have a suspicion its flown in daily from an italian dairy... the food is simple yet intricate - very much like the chef himself who brings an entire new dimension to the ''celebrity chef'' phenomenon

Beautiful place with GREAT food, attentive service and reasonable prices for what you get. My vote for one of the newcomers of the year.

ECLECTIC DECOR AND CROWD VINCE IS LIKE A GENERAL IN THE KITCHEN AND A GENIAL HOST WORKING THE PATRONS. BILL TENDING BAR IS THE BEST

When we arrived, our reservation was misplaced but the hostess made every effort to sit us quickly and was very apologetic, that was very nice (we are used to the "host wannabe actress snotty types"). We were a little disappointed in the bar (there isn't any) and we were on top of tables which is uncomfortable. The restaurant is small but with high ceilings make you feel as you are in a larger room. The service was great, the food was even better and the Chef walked the floor the entire Friday night to make sure his guests were being helped and happy. There were many folks just dropping by to have pizza for dinner (which we will def. do next itme). I have to say thought I was very disappointed in the woman manager it seemed because we were "accomodated" she kept rushing us at desswer time, kept coming over and saying are we ready with the check. I came really close to complaining but we had such a nice time overall I didn't let her ruin the restaurant. Overall, go here, order pizza, drink wine and have a good time.

Wonderful food (pizza outstanding)but the noise factor can be a problem. Service was good. Cant wait to go back. Onion Salad fab.
Major Pizza Fuss, So-So Results
By colpo on 4/23/2003
Not your typical pizza place. This is a full-blown mid-end NY Italian restaurant that does the pizza thing. Be prepared to drop $100 for apps, mains and wine at dinner, although lunch comes in cheaper. The pizza is overly thin and crackly - it missed the chewiness component that I at least look for. Toppings are fine, but I'd return for anything other than the pizza next time. Nice place, good restaurant-quality service.
Goo-goo for Gonzo

It's a long wait for a table on a Friday night, but saddle up to the bar for a pleasant surprise. The bartenders are attentive, their wine rec's are on target and the pours are generous to tide you over for the l-o-n-g wait. Once you're seated, don't miss the grilled onion salad with shaved parmesan and Italian parsley. Out of this world. Other great picks are any of the crispy pizzas -- the eggplant and the mushroom are equal rivals for the best on the list.
