Overhyped

I am really surprised by the reviews thus far. Luzzo's was ok. The crust was thin and held the pizza together well. The crust was soft and not very gummy. The sauce, cheese, and topping my date and I shared were completely unremarkable. The sausage was very dry. The "basil" was just a sprig placed on the top. I ended up tearing it up and putting it over the whole pie. This helped. The sauce was neither sweet nor savory, it tasted generic. All in all I was unimpressed.

I recently discovered that there was a Luzzo's nearby after having heard so much about the 1st Ave. branch. The first time I ordered, I chose a traditional "La Quadrata" Bufala (essentially the Neapolitan take on what we know as Sicilian pizza), and the "Ripieno" for delivery from the 96th St. location and was delighted with both. Both were ordered for lunch and arrived within the half-hour within which we were told to expect it. In the case of the La Quadrata, the crust had a great sourdough flavor nicely augmented with islands of sweet, buttery buffalo mozzarella, basil and a tangy tomato sauce; the Ripieno had the same qualities, with a bit more mozzarella, thinner crust, along with sausage, olives, and slices of a nice, dense ricotta. Having lived in Italy before I appreciated the authenticity of the pizze here and am lucky to have Luzzo's in the neighborhood.

Official: Best Pizza in Manhattan

As the debate rages eternally over where to find the best pizza in Manhattan, I've got to say I have yet to find a finer pizza in all of New York than at this bustling joint on First Avenue. I always order the Mozzarella di Bufala DOC (the only way in which to judge a pizzeria), paired with a bottle of Menabrea (my favorite Italian beer, and quite rare even in Italy). I get to talk "calcio" with the staff and they even have Italian MTV. Plus it's just two blocks from my apartment.

I like Luzzo's a lot. They also show Italian videos which are fun to watch if you go there alone.
