I traveled to Brooklyn from Jersey City to check out this place after reading the NYMAG.com story about Mario Batalli sampling pizza in New York. The pizza here was excellent. On a Saturday afternoon, the place was not full at all. Service was friendly, and the artichoke pizza tasted great. The dough expands around the edges and there are perfect little burnt crispy spots from being in the wood-fired oven the right amount of time. It's a real wood-burning oven. I wish there was some way they could siphon some of that great homey smell from burning wood into the restaurant because as it is, the place didn't have any aroma at all. I think a good restaurant should exude some type of aroma of amazing food when you enter. Obviously you don't want to go into a place that's filled with smoke, though ... You get the idea, right? The decor was bland, but the large wood plank floors give the place a "slight" rustic edge with room for improvement. The trip to the restaurant is easy. Just take the L train to the Graham Ave subway stop.

Had the soppressata, the anchovies and the margherita DOC. The achovies and olives and capers pizza was salty but delicious, the soppressata was impressively ungreasy and the DOC was sweet. the crust was very puffy and chewy and charred in the right places. very fun to look at the oven and the people making pizza

A nice salad, great pizzas, good sorbet and a fresh breeze on the garden terrace, what more can one ask for? One of the finest pizzerias in town!

When we arrived we were told to seat ourselves, then sat at our table for 10 minutes (!) before being greeted...no hello, no menus, no water, no specials, no nothing. Did I mention that it wasn't even busy? It sort of just went downhill from there. So much staff standing around doing nothing that the hole thing was starting to feel like candid camera. Very weird.

it's not one of the finest pizzerias in town, it's comparable to roberta's pizza in brklyn, and i can't even stand that pizza joint. yes, "hipsters" hang out at roberta's but be fully prepared to listen to their radio wine show, hosted by some loud mouth annoying hostess~ sound fun? Oohhh no..... it's not.

Superb crust,wonderful fresh mozzarella. I don't know anyone could rate this only the eight best pizza place in NY. Outside of Naples one of the best overall pies I've ever eaten. The Buffaline is even better than the Margarita ,with its perfect balance of smokey crust to creamy buffalo mozzarella.

I''m not sure why this made it into the NY Mag restaurants review issue. Their pizza is small, meager and bland. Their salads are the same. The bill was alot and we left still hungry and unsatisfied.I tried it twice just to make sure the first visit wasn't a fluke. But we were sadly disappointed again. If you want an awesome tasty pizza go across the street to Barosa.
