I just love the crust. I think it must be grilled and then they add the toppings. Its absolutely splendid. You don't feel stuffed after eating it. The chef and sister have alot of personality and its always been a pleasure to dine in their place. I can't wait to go back.

'Scrumptious'

You have to taste Vinney's grilled pizza margarita - it is out of this world, not to mention his scrumptious caesar salad.... all of Vinney's dishes are definitely worth tasting. I love the décor and atmosphere at Gonzo.

I have been to five out of the eleven nominees and Gonzo is the one I keep going back to. While L'Impero may be more romantic, the food and value at Gonzo is much better. Gonzo is Vinny Scotto's best by far. Great neighborhood location,wonderful food,relaxing atmosphere and the best grilled pizza this side of Tuscany. The garlic mashed potato pizza is to die for, as are so many of the other dishes! I send eveyone there to try it at least once!

What a great find! Keep it a secret. I can't wait to go back to try more from the menu. Everything sounded wonderful. The thin crusted pizza was excellent! Forget the margarita and try the portobella mushroom and mashed potato. Trust me on this, you won't be sorry. Don't forget the rest of the menu, Gonzo is much more than a pizza place. It was hard to choose from the great entries.

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

The only good thing here are the pizzas and they are not great just good! the rest is sooooo disappointing the place is cold and the menu is full of mistakes. It is not Italian at all. It is one more ok place in NY but NY has many.

Beware the Anchovies

  • No, I would not go back!

My friends and I went to celebrate a birthday and were having a great time until the pizzas came and after taking one bite of hers, my friend asked our waiter if there were anchovies on her pizza since she was deathly allergic to them. The waiter had such a condecending attitude about the whole thing as he recounted the ingredients in that particular pizza. We had to specifically ask him to double check with the chef as he did not offer to do so. It turns out there were anchovies in it and when my friend suggested that they should change that on the menu since it is a common allergy, instead of apologizing, the waiter told my friend that if she has an allergy to something that she should have told him. Needless to say we are never going back there again.

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.

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.
