Our pasta was raw, our chicken tasted like cardboard, the steak was AWFUL! This was a shocker but stay AWAY! The room is great maybe that's why the chef spends all his time walking around it with 100 year old vinegar in his pocket instead of cooking int he kitchen.
I think they need a new pizza man

good food, great pizzas, interesting menu, crappy decor, loud, weird vibe (feels cold). you need 3-4 people so you can share because you'll want a pizza and some apps. great on a weeknight; although crowded (make a reservation) not the right vibe for the weekend.

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.
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.
Beware the Anchovies
By theNixter on 3/14/2003
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.

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.

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.
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
