    Highly recommended! Blackberry Mojito was refreshing and tasty. Broccoli rabe and sausage pizza was DELISH! Staff were hilariously friendly and genuine. Going back for sure!!

    The perfect Neapolitan-style pizza served in a causal and hip setting. We love their selection of cocktails, beer and wine. You must try the wood-fired margarita pizza with 1/2 sausage.

    Neapolitan style pizza, this authentic spot is the BEST PIZZA IN NYC. Amazing cocktails; expect a brief wait since it's near theater district. Good for dates. Get their speciality pizza for dinner.

    Quick, great service. The burrata and margherita pizza are perfect to share for a quick bite with a half litre of cab sav. Ask for the red pepper flake olive oil only if you like it HOT

    Ask them to make a recommendation! They know what's popular, especially if you don't know where to look on their big menu. REALLY enjoyed the pizza that's fried before it's baked. Everything is FAST!!

    Get the Montanara pizza, which has a deep-fried crust. This is one of the only places in the city (let alone the U.S.) that serves it. Fear the fried? Get the Pistacchio e Salsiccia pizza.

    Some of the most epic pizza of all time. The fried montanara is their signature pizza but my personal favorite is the pistachio pesto with sausage. They also do an epic burrata with Proscuitto -J

    Saw the place on Guy Fieris show and figured we'd try it. Very very well made Neapolitan pizza with well thought out menu creations. We had a Diavola and Padrino, washed down with $10 Montepulciano.

    I've eaten at over 60 NYC pizza joints, and this one ranks in the top 5, alongside Keste, Grimaldis, John's, and Lucali. Lasagna Pizza is excellent. Practically everything is amazing here though.

    Pistachio e Salsiccia - fresh pistachio pesto w/ sausage. Signature fried pizza dough called Montanara Starita. Try w/ spicy oil! #nom #NYC

    Great pizza in authentic Neapolitan style. The crust is as it's supposed to be. Had the margherita with provola and felt like I was back home. Definitely a top NY spot for good pizza!

    The Finocchiona Pizze Speciale was too good to be true. Hands down best pizza in NYC and very reminiscent of pizza from Napoli. Also their homemade burrata is a must-try!

  • Siddharth A.
    Pizza was great. Beer was great. I don't understand the practise of being given the check without asking for it. Either it's self service, where you pay upfront, or you ask for the check. What's this?

    Ever had fried pizza? Try this Naples specialty called montanara. The dough is flash-fried before it's cooked in the oven. Then covered with tomato sauce, basil, & smoky buffalo mozzarella. Read more

    Delicious margherita prosciutto pizza! The crust was light, airy, and chewy at same time. Great with Issac Belgium beer.

    Delicious pizza and good service. A bit Midtown, so be prepared to be rushed. They can't "add" anything to the pizzas so be sure to order the pizza you want.

    Arguably the best Neapolitan pizza in the US (not to mention NYC). In addition, their housemade Burrata is as good as you'll find anywhere on the globe.

    Huge portion of burrata with prosciutto. I've had the fried margherita pizza twice, but it's not my favorite. Odd taste to the dough for a classic Neopolitan pizza lover. Good place for a group.

    Another pizza venture from the resolutely Neapolitan folks behind Keste, it's the best pizza in Midtown hands-down.

    Can't go wrong with the Kesté pizza. Prosciutto is wonderful. The crust is a bit fluffier than other Neapolitan places I've been.

    Never had fried pizza before, but definitely will be coming back for more. While it looks like a regular pizza, fried dough adds such a unique flavor.

    Montanara Starit is the best. The fried pizza dough is awesomely soft and chewy texture like a doughnut. Non fried dough pizzas are all good as well.

    Excellent panini are more like freeform unsealed calzones. Charred and puffy like their pizza crusts.

    Try the trasteverino - touch of sweet (limoncello) meets a bit of bitter (cynar / artichoke liquor).

    I was very excited because of the hype. The fried pizza was good and definitely worth trying, it's very different, much like a savory elephant ear. DO NOT GET PESTO PIZZA! That was a let down.
