We had the funghi pizza and the vegetarian pizza - funghi was nice and crisp since it had less toppings but the vegetarian had a soggy crust in the center. The dough was awesome and so was the tomato sauce. The crusts on the side were worth eating. The pear salad was particularly tasteless.

After searching for six months to find a decent (I wasn't expecting good) gluten free pizza, I finally found it. The pizza is actually chewy and thick and tastes like real pizza. Unfortunately they only serve it on Monday and Tuesday.

We picked this restaurant because we had fantastic pizza there six months ago but it seems with their rise to fame came the ego. The food is fantastic, but there is no other logical explanation for why the staff afford themselves the luxury of talking down to you and basically throwing you out as soon as you have signed the receipt. And left a sizeable tip. We took our friends to dinner in order to ask that they be the Best Man and Maid of Honor at our wedding and were treated with such disrespect. This was supposed to be a joyous occasion and we were so excited to show them the "best pizza in town". We waited 45 minutes for a table, after being bumped for three Italian gentlemen. We used our time in line to decide what we wanted, knew our orders immediately, ate quickly, and a half an hour later we were paying the bill. We did not linger inappropriately, but merely wanted to wait until the end of dinner to deliver the proposal to our friends. The waiter came by and took a half empty pitcher of water off the table and then the head water stopped by to tell us to "take our time, because people are waiting outside but we should take all the time we need in getting out". Wow, in other words, give us your money, and then get the hell out. No pizza is worth this abuse, especially at the prices they charge!

It was refreshing to eat pizza that was not overly-processed with low quality ingredients. We could actually taste fresh ingredients! Service was excellent, above expectations (prompt, efficient, friendly). Food was fresh, clean, delicious; and ambiance was more than appropriate for a "pizza and wine" spot. We live on the UES, but will make this a weekly "go to" spot.

I have had Keste on my "places to try" list for some time and finally made it there for a pizza to go. I always expect it to be a little cold when I get home and have the oven ready. I was very surprised and disappointed when I opened the box to find a soggy mess. The crust was doughy and disgusting. I did like the topping, but its just not the same without a nice crispy crust. Even after putting it in the oven for 5-10 minutes, the crust didn't cook. It was the most bizarre thing I've ever experienced with a pizza. I called the restaurant and told them it wasn't cooked right and they offered to replace it. But I live downtown and wasn't about to get back on the train, on New Years Eve, in the cold and rain. At least its been scratched off the list....

Finally visited Keste after having read NY Mag's review. This is not "the best pizza" in New York City. It is good and made with fresh ingredients. The pizza which you order is an individual pizza ranging from $16 to $20. Each one in my party that I tried had somewhat soggy crust. I'm glad I went, but there's nothing about the place which makes me want to go back anytime soon.

I've read tons of reviews of Keste's pizza, and one day my husband and I decided to try it. We had high expectations, but were not disappointed. The pizza was great, with thin and chewy dough, very tasty sauce. I loved my toppings of arugula (practically raw) and prosciutto. The salad we had was very fresh. The staff was excellent, and very friendly. I loved watching the guys make pizza. A+
