I ordered a pizza from Lombardi's last week to see if all the hype was true. I was very disappointed. For $17, I got a pizza with roasted peppers. It arrived soggy, I don't think they cooked it long enough. And while the sauce was very tasty, I've had better pizza at slice shops. Maybe they do a better job if you dine at the restaurant, but this was a disgrace for one of the places considered to be the best for pizza in New York.

Never, ever have I had to put salt on a pizza. Don't even like salt. But this pizza was exactly the following: Dough + crushed barely ripened tomatoes + fresh yet tasteless mozzarella + very old oven = Lombardi's. Real nice staff though.

We visited Lombardi's for a Saturday lunch and we had no waiting, which was great. The pizza was very good- chewy, crispy crust with the perfect tomato sauce and cheese. The service was only so-so. Our waitress forgot a few things and never said thank-you. But it won't stop us from going back.

Unfortunately the Pizza I ordered with Pepperoni, Sausage, Onions & Olives came out soggy. Yes it was not even crisp except on the outer edges. Maybe it was the onions or maybe they just put too much water in their sauce. The others said their pizza with Anchovies instead of onions was OK. The waiter reprimanded me for ordering green olives when I should have stuck to the list and ordered Black olives. Oh well maybe I will find a really good Pizza in NY someday. Chicago Pizza still rules in my book.

Overpriced. The place is packed with ravenous tourists and this is going to kill both the atmosphere and the service. At the same time, their pizza is -poor-. It lasts about 15 seconds in a box, it falls apart, it doesn't taste good, and the quality varies tremendously. This is a tourist spot. I remember this place being better. Their pizza sells because of its reputation and its history, but it's no better than something you get for 2 dollars a slice in most of Brooklyn.

A bit too crowded with tourists -- so delivery or take-out is preferable -- but the pizza makes it all worthwhile. Great thin crust, fresh mozzarella, and fantastic pepperoni.

Lombardi's is my favorite pizza place in NYC. Each time a friend visits, I insist we go and order my standard pepperoni pizza. The pepperonis are roughly the size of nipples (I had to say it) and curl delicately at the edges. The sauce is tangy and street. The cheese is dripping off the coal oven baked crust. It's delicious. Waits are not uncommon, especially at dinner hours and on weekends but the service is decent.
