    Solid wood-fired-oven pizza from an alumnus of Paulie Gee's. Clam pie is very good. Get it. And is this weird, but the Bibb salad is nice, too. Read more

    Wood-fired Neapolitan-esque pies worth a visit from beyond the neighborhood.

    Best Margarita slice ever. I'd take a picture but we inhaled it.

    Great romantic atmosphere, good service and delicious food. We had the Neapolitan Meatballs, a Soppressata Piccante pizza and a Margherita. Can't wait to return to try more things on the menu.

    All their pizzas are great, but come here for brunch and get the bacon, egg and cheese pizza, banana/walnut/nutella calzone, and mona lisa - their twist on the bloody mary (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Ask for the spicy honey to dip your pizza crust in an you MUST finish with a Nutella Calzone with expresso gelato. Will blow your mind.

    We don't have Paulie Gee's of Greenpoint, but we have the next best thing. Must-share pies include the meatball, arugula, and four cheese pizzas, but I highly suggest asking about the calzones too!

    The owner and his family are great! The pizza is great! The staff is great! The Bar is Great! The Place is just Great!

    Sitting in the back patio at night is one of the more pleasant experiences in New York. Fantastic Neapolitan pizzas and the Piazza cocktail is summer in a glass.

    One glass of wine actually equals 3. Bang for your buck if you want to get drunk fast.

    Cozy, romantic space with extremely friendly servers and spectacular food. Perfect for sharing. The arugula pizza - do it!!!

    Food is incredible and service is great. Wonderful Franklin ave find with a little swankier atmosphere. The arugula pizza and Bibb salad (wine) were excellente.

    I shared 2 pizzas with two friends. The meatball pizza didn't have a lot of meat but still very tasty as was the nepotaliano four cheese pizza. This place is a restaurant/bar, no hole in the wall.

    Carlos Escobar · September 18, 2012
  • Elishia C.

    Four cheese and pepperoni drizzled with a locally made honey is delicious. Neapolitan Meatball is yummy. Lunchbox cocktail is interesting in a good way. Service and atmosphere were phenomenal.

    This place is huge, plus they have a garden in back. Amazing food and there's almost never a wait. Not an easy thing to find these days.

    Matt Healy · August 27, 2012

    Any pizza is great here! But MUST try the gelato: hazelnut, dark chocolate, and espresso is the best combo ever!

    Sasha V · June 21, 2012

    Late night happy hour (11pm-1am) gets you $2 off beers + their outstanding cocktails {no better deal in this neighborhood than their Manhattan or Sazarac}

    Save room for laboratorio espresso gelato

    Those are some tasty meatballs.

  • Munira A.

    They manage to bring the pizza out very soon after your order is placed. Keep that up! Slightly overwhelming amount of pork items on the menu than I'd like to see but lovely service excuses that :)

    Munira Ahmed · November 20, 2011

    Arugula pizza with prosciutto, FTW! Hot damn! No liquor license as of 10/10/11, but apparently it's coming soon. Also, great job on the old-made-new interior!

    Truly some of the best pizza we've had in Brooklyn. Come with some friends so you can try a few - but mainly the meatball, the arugula with prosciutto, & the four cheese with pepperoni are must-try's!

    I love this place. I always come on Sundays once in a while if I'm hung over and it is a perfect start to my day :) you really can't go wrong with any of the pizzas, every one I've had rocks

    Jenn Muller · November 24, 2013
  • Jen B.

    SO GOOD!! Everything - the food, service, setting - was awesome. Definitely have to try the nutella calzone for dessert!

    Jen Belcher · August 6, 2013
  • Kristen H.

    Be sure to ask your waiter about the special! There's a good chance it's going to be amazing.

    Bacon, egg and cheese pizza is delicious. Good cocktails too.

    That Bloody Mary is something to kill for, especially after a night out in the city. But that breakfast pizza made me realize I wasnt living life right until I had that bite of GOODNESS!

    Stephanie Douglas · September 26, 2012
  • Nick B.

    Never had a bad meal here. Salad and pizzas are all epic, and I've tried them all. Love this place.

    Grub Street's Cheap Eats says: "Margherita Pizza, $11, plus pork-and-veal meatballs, $9."

    Arugula pizza!

    Erin · July 9, 2012
  • Sara S.

    Ask for chili oil to dip your crust. Get the pepper appetizer and add the burrata! It's not on the menu but save room for dessert and ask for a limoncello to pour over vanilla gelato - amazing!

    Sara Schneider · May 21, 2012
  • Sara S.

    Don't even know where to start. Love this place, some of The best pizza around. Come for brunch for the pizza with egg and get a Mona Lisa - the best bloody Mary ever!

    Sara Schneider · May 21, 2012

    It's all about the clam pie.

    Thin crust pizza in a dark, chill, vaguely romantic environment.

    Great date spot with happy hour. The pizza was fantastic!

    You can actually split the pizzas if the sauce is the same. It's a great way to try whatever the special is with something from the menu!

    Best pizza in Crown Heights. Dough, sauce, and toppings are all top notch. Meatballs appetizer is amazing and even their Margherita pizza is fantastic.

    Try the Brooklyn, since you're in Brooklyn.

    Great food and drinks - including cocktails. Eat in the backyard when the weather's nice.

    Jacqui Maher · November 23, 2014

    Very cute space perfect for a date or night w/ friends. Pizza pie will definitely fill you and try the Tiramisu

    Escrevo em português, porque a quantidade de elogios em inglês já é mais do que suficiente para convencer qualquer um a vir aqui. Melhores almôndegas e melhor pizza que eu experimentei nos EUA.
