The pizza is great and so is the homemade pasta

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

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.

NYC is lucky to have a couple of excellent pizza joints and Luzzos is one of the best Ive been so far. The pizzas here are traditional: thin-crust with a tasty tomato base: simply delicious! (the rest of the dishes is less interesting)

Real Neapolitan Pizza

Beware: real Neapolitan pizza, excellent. That is, NOT thin and crusty, under Italian pizza standards, but relatively thick. So, if you are looking for a "Roman" pizza (very, very thin and crusty) it's not your place. Reasonably priced ($33). The bufala mozzarella is real bufala mozzarella, as tautologic as that may seem. Espresso excellent; Limoncello you can skip.

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.
