Lombardi's is still the yardstick against which all NY pizza must be measured. I was less than thrilled with the dee-loox seat I had next to the wheezing basement water heater overlooking a cruddy subterranean storage dungeon (my daughter's chair was scrunched by the out-of-service industrial strength dough mixer)...but the pizza was eaten with my eyes closed 80% of the time. Insist on a 1st floor table: worth the wait.

This pizza is supposed to be one of the best in the city. I don't understand why. I will admit that I've never been to the actual restaurant. But based on their delivery, I'll never go. The pizza was mediocre (not terrible, just middle of the road), and the delivery was extremely slow. For $22+ for a pizza, this place is not recommended.

I recently moved from the West Village to Spring Street. When I heard about and saw Lombardi's I was really excited. And I wasnt exactly "disappointed" by Lombardi's but I certainly wasn't impressed. I expected the "best pizza in nyc". However, the Pepperoni pie is a standout as the thick hormel pepperoni they use is delicious. However, the crust is always very soft and limp and doesn't compare to the crispier better tasting crusts offered at other places. Overall, the pizza is definitely in the top 10 in new york, but if you want to the best slice in New York - get Bleecker Street Pizza's Nonna Maria and for the best pie... and still the king of all pizza... John's on Bleecker Street.

I just recently went to Lombardi's for dinner, and now I'll never be able to visit another pizza shop...I'd only be cheating myself. Lombardi's simply has the best pie in town! Try the pepperoni pizza--they use the thick ones that are delicious. And don't forget to try their salad, the crust tastes extra tasty after being dipped in their vinegarette dressing. Yum!

The pizza is good, but it took an hour for it to come and it was cold. The dressing on the salad was watery and the overall value was below average.

We had heard a lot about Lombardi's and we were not disappointed. It was very traditional in its setting and atmosphere. Nothing flashy about it at all. It was truly good value for money since we spent more on pre-dinner drinks in a bar on Mercer Street than we did on a large pizza with 4 toppings!

Went to Lomarbi's with high expectations given the claims that it is the best pizza in NY, was inevitably dissapointed. The sauce was too watery, cheese sparse, and the crust was nothing to write home about. Would not bother going there again.
