Try the classic Clam Pie

Lombardi's Clam Pie is my favorite. The portion is very generous, and this pizza is pretty fulfilling; you'll get a good amount of good pizza for a good price. The waitresses are not super nice, but they're not rude or anything. Just look at how many people they have to serve every day, and you shouldn't really complain about the service since it's decent.

Pizza Done Right!

Now this is pizza done right. Forget all those places with the 3 hour waits, you'll only end up disappointed anyway. This is as good as it gets outside of Italy. The coal oven pizza is always done to perfection-- the crust is thin but not too crisp, the toppings are always fresh and plentiful and the atmosphere warm and cozy. Great place to come with friends, family, anyone who enjoys delicious pizza at reasonable prices.

Good pizza

At the end of the day, all anyone comes here for is the pizza (which is good because that's pretty much all they have on offer), and the clam pie we had was excellent. Lots and lots of clams and lemon halves for juicing over your slices. I need to go back for the more standard pizza to give the place a fair shake, though. The service was okay - our waitress was competent but not overly attentive nor helpful (when asked what to get, she offered "everyone comes here for the Gennero original, but the clam pie is really good, too"), she seemed a little distracted, too, for no reason I could see. For dessert, Rice to Riches is just a few addresses down the street.

Been to Lombardi's many times and love all their pies but can't understand why the clam pie is always so dry. If this is the way it is to be served, then I'll pass on this being their "best" selection....

very good, but no original patsy's or grimaldi's. or even original totonno's. don't trust a reviewer that hasn't been to them all. when i didn't know better, i loved lombardi's too. but if you're looking for the very, very best...

Not Bad, But Overrated

This place must have naked pictures of somebody big. Year in, year out, I'm told how great this pizza is, and to try the clam pie (their 'specialty'). Well, the pizza is quite ordinary by good-pie-NYC standards. Neither the crust nor the toppings overly impress - suffice to say it's good. Would I take an out-of-towner I wanted to impress here, no. As for the clam pie, STONE BORING! It's a pizza crust, topped with more clams than you'd ever want to eat in any context, forget about on a pizza. No sauce, no ... anything besides clams. Where's the finesse?
