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)

I'm Italian. Luzzo's is a piece of Italy in NY. Nothing to do with Lombardi's and other pretending-to-be-Italian pizzerie. Luzzo's pizza is a true Italian pizza. Ingredients come r-e-a-l-l-y from Italy (mozzarella di bufala, olive oil ecc.) and the way is made is just the proper, original one. Owner and waiters are true, 100% Italians (napoletani!!!). Absolutely reccomended if you miss Italy and you can't fly back there!

The pizza at Luzzo's is unbelievably good. Everything just tastes perfect. I asked the waiter (they are all great people) how they did it one time and he took me back to the bakery area and showed me every ingredient. His point was largely that everything came fresh from Italy, including the staff. I even took my buddy Pete, who is a native new yorker there. He fought to hold back his smile when he said "that's a good pie". Whatever they are doing it works.

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.

Excellent inexpensive italian. The pizza is amazing as well as the entrees.
