The Zagat Review
This 1905-vintage NoLita pizza “shrine” , which claims to be America's first pizzeria, still draws throngs with its “real-deal” coal-fired pies; it doesn't take plastic or reservations, and you may have to “tussle with the tourists to get a table” , but it's a true “slice of NY” – even though it “doesn't do slices.”

Zagat Mentions of Lombardi's
Google Reviews
Lombardi's is a popular nice pizzeria in the NYC East village. This place is claimed and famously known to be the first pizzeria in America and has often been featured to be the among the best pizzerias in NYC. They serve good pizzas of 3-4 basic types with a huge array of toppings choice. The place is vegetarian friendly too. It has good ambience and good rustic old school Italian sit down dine-in restaurant charm. Best time to visit the place is late afternoon to skip the long waits and the place is cash only.

The first pizzeria in the US warrants a visit, and we were happy that it wasn't just a ploy to get people in the door. Lombardi's clearly hasn't just survived off nostalgia and an amazing claim to fame, their food is exceptional. We actually walked 15 blocks in the rain determined to eat here during our trip to NYC, and would happily do it again. The pizza was delicious, totally worth having lunch completely soaked! The menu is very simple, you can order two different pizzas or just make your own, makes it easier than perusing a ridiculous menu of stuff no one wants to eat. The staff was amazing...Their restroom was out of order and locked up, I asked if I could simply use it to change our baby's diaper. They tracked down the key, most people would say they didn't know where the key was and leave it at that, but half the staff was running around looking for it, they were great and we appreciated them going above and beyond for a wet diaper.

We'd heard about Lombardi's from several sources, and finally got to experience it for ourselves. When we arrived it was jam packed with customers waiting for tables. This made us consider leaving, as our wait was going to be 45 minutes +, but we were really glad we waited. The pizza was Delicious! We'll worth the wait, and the service was spot on!
