I guess if the food isnt "supersized" or dripping with disgusting fake cheese and sauce some people would deem the food as "not a value" as some have written in their review. If you want great Neapolitan style pizza then this is by far the best place in the City. If you just want to satisfy your huger with a pizza the size and weight of my car tire then go to you local Pizza Hut. I guess this is why we have so many fat Americans!

We've tried them all -- Motorino, Keste, the new Donatella, Totale, etc. For our money, Co. wins. Best crust, ingredients, flavor combination. The communal tables can be annoying and the fact that you can't call ahead a take-out order is annoying, but it's still worth the schlep if you live on the east side.

Went there on a weekday and although very crowded, was able to get a table for 2 with only a 5 minute wait. Salads were good---the beet/watercress especially. Pizzas were well-executed--the meatball pie & the prosciutto are the 2 best. Disturbing trend however: they charge you $ 5 for bread & butter and $2 when you ask for grated Parmesan cheese. Was afraid to ask for olive oil. I understand that their ingredients are local & well-sourced but these should not be considered upgrades subject to extra charges--not sure if I'll go back.

Co is stylish, clean, casual and has the BEST pizza. Soft, chewy crust with just the right amount of crisp. Great sauce, no drippy mess here. Real cheese, no cheap, gooey, makes you choke mozzarella here. Meatball pizza? Hell yes! Spinach pizza, oh my! The salads are also fan-freakin-tastic. This is not your typical greasy, glop, slop, cheap crap. This is FINE food folks. Worth every penny.

I can't tell you how great the tomatoes are at this place. I love that they do their own tomato preparation. The crust is usually excellent. They salt it just enough and if they don't burn it too much it is really the best. It isn't traditional Napolatana style pizza because they don't use San Marzano tomatoes. But who cares? It is the tangiest treat and the most perfect tasting pie! I will usually share a Marinara and Margherita with my husband. We usually share one of the unique delicious salads as well. The service is usually not very good unfortunately. I used to eat here every week and have stopped due to the service. We usually go during the slow time to avoid how loud it can get. It really is noisy during the peak hours. I recommend lunch hours here or weekends after 3:30 but before 5:30. The lemonade is NOT worth it!! I think it may be Country Time. And they charge per glass. So do not get a refill! Deserts are "hit or miss".Wine and beer is available as well. Please go here and know what pizza should taste like and how great crust can be!! The tang in the tomato and the "chew" of the crust can't be beat!! The service, however, can be overlooked at least a couple of times!

15 people who arrived after me were seated before me. Waited for 30 minutes longer than I was told I would have to, and then seated at a crowded common table. The pizza is small, salty, but delicious. And the place is way too noisey. I will never go back.

I've eaten here often and loved it everytime. I love the crust of the pizza--thin but with some nice tooth to it--and the toppings are fresh and flavorful. My personal favorites are the popeye with wilted spinach and stracciatella with arugula. If you are looking for classic NY pizza, this isn't the place. But if you want something inventive and perhaps more healthful, you won't be disappointed by Co.
