Mediocre Food, Appalling Service

  • No, I would not go back!

Super disappointed that NYMag critics picked this overpriced, mediocre establishment. I can put up with inept servers and a rude, entitled manager, but I draw the line at bad pizza. There are so many other fantastic places to go in NY (with better ambiance and a people watching scene)--Lombardi's, Locali's, Franny's. Don't waste your time or money.

Good Food, Bad Music

The pizza was delicious and the restaurant cute. However the very loud karoke-style music ruined any potential for ambiance or pleasant conversation.

Finally! A place to eat near Penn Station

I was shocked to venture up the stairs and find adorable Lazzara's. The tin ceiling was lovely and the ambience inviting- it got you in the mood for some great pizza. The pizza was very tasty, but I'd skip the appetizers. They were uninspired and bland. A nice value for a good meal when you're heading to or from Penn Station.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
