Service
 
“Amazing” thin-crust pizzas and “to-die-for” meatballs are the fortes of this “charming” NoLita Italian done up in “rustic-chic” style; “cozy” turns “tight” during prime times, and it can be “hard to get a table” , but “cool” vibes and “reasonable” tabs compensate.

Wow, first time in NYC and this place really knocked it out of the park. If you're looking for real, quality, Italian food, desserts, or drinks this is the place to go. The atmosphere is killer and the service is phenomenal!! Luigi really made our visit pleasant as well. He was extremely professional but also down to earth! Overall, A great "hole in the wall" Italian restaurant.

Pizza was nice and big and thin but not a stand out in our opinion, they got our order wrong and then health inspector came in and kitchen closed for 30 minutes so they couldn’t correct the order. Stacker plate fell because it was half off the table and lost 1/3 of the pizza and was not compensated at all. Staff are great and pizza is nice but not worth the hype.. make sure you book in advance too! Make sure you get the vodka pizza with the pesto... was the best of them all!!

Coming on Christmas Eve and it was almost an hour wait. It is the best pizza version of its type. It is super thin crust, almost like a cracker very traditional to roman style pizza. The crust is super crispy and stands up to the toppings without flopping over. It's an important feature of an excellent pizza, balance between crust, sauce and toppings. Based on recommendations, we did half and half (Vodka and Supreme). I wasn't a big fan of the Vodka because I thought the sauce was too sweet for me. The Supreme was great! Loved the balance of the tangy and sweet tomato sauce with the high quality topping of mini meatballs, pepperoni and roasted garlic. It is definitely a new favorite pizza place and because the crust was so thin, you can eat half a pie without getting too full and less carbs.
