Delicious and authentic, even at the uptown branch

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.

Luzzo's is Italian, Lombardi's just very turistic

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!

"It's every ingredient"

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.
