    We live a block away and are there a lot. The Speck and Brie Pizza, the L'Americano Panini and the Homemade Tiramisu along with a bottle of wine is a good night out.

    Umm, yea, this place is ridiculous! Not only is the pizza amazing, so is literally everything else: service, decor, salads, and even the chef complimented my earrings. Also, great obscure music!!

    Their seafood (calamari, shrimp, mussels) is very fresh and delicious. They cook it perfectly into the pizza so don't be afraid to try pizza with the seafood.

    Forget thick crust and pan pizza. This is the real deal: the pizza is paper thin and plain amazing. Make a test run with the Margerita, trust!

    Best pizza I've had in Astoria... I can't stop going back! And with 40+ different pizzas, I want to try a new one every time. I recommend trying the Pizzucca. Unique and delicious.

    The owner is very hands-on, was super concerned about our food and overall experience. And he brought my sister and I shots of limoncello before we left. Great customer service lives here! .

    The pear and gorgonzola pizza—made with fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, Williams pears, parmigiano reggiano and basil ($12)—is an unexpected and tasty combination. Read more
