This place is fantastic. Go there all the time large pie with sausage and ricotta cheese is the best. The clam pie is very good as well( No Sauce ). The only problem is the long wait but it is worth it. Kind of expensive. Dont do delivery -- this type of pizza doesn"t travel well the box seems to steam it and take away the crispyness.

Lombardi's is America's first pizzeria and it's a fun experience. If you go on the weekend, plan to WAIT!! It's filled with locals and a lot of tourists. Pizza is very tasty, although expensive. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, despite the chaos of the crowds. Because of price and the long wait though, we would probably choose some place else in the future. Definitely a pizzeria to try once though!

Intrigued by their claim that they were the first pizzeria in America, along with the fact that this was one of the few coal-oven pizzerias in the city, and, I had to try this place out. We odered a large pie for the 3 of us, which was just enough, half plain and half with garlic spinach. I preferred the spinach slice, although I couldn't quite taste the garlic. Overall, the pizza was good, but I think I like Grimaldi's better. The bruschetta looked very good also, I will try that and a calzone the next time.

Recent trip to NYC we got down into Little Italy. If you are from out of town, you have to do this. Great neighborhood, felt completely safe all over this area. We got directions to Lombardi which we had read about before getting to town. And it was great!. The pizza was very good size, one large was plenty for the three of us. The taste was great, much like you will find in Italy. If someone criticizes the taste of this pizza, they don't know what real pizza is supposed to taste like because they are used to Pizza Hut or Papa Johns or DiGiorno. Atmosphere was great, they seated us in the cellar, among all the wine bottles and we really enjoyed it on a very hot day. Service was exceptional with a very friendly waitress and prompt service even though we were warned because she said they had just refired the oven. And the price was remarkable. Large pizza with different toppings, pitcher of soft drink and a separate drink for our daughter and the total bill was around $30.00. Great value in NYC. Definitely eat here and take time to walk around the neighborhood. We really enjoyed walking and seeing what NYC is all about, the people who live and work there.

I got my pizza delivered so take my service and atmosphere ratings with a grain of salt. Oh wait, don't take any extra salt after ordering from this place. My mouth is burning from the overly salty pizza I just finished. Yeah, I first ate at Lombardi's (in the restaurant) about 13 years ago and it was okay but still overrated compared to pizza I've had in Italy and even Austin. But now, it's overrated compared to just about anything. $40 after a large pizza, salad and delivery? Come on - it better be good. And it's not.

Home made Sangria was tasty, pizza options limited but ample amount of toppings available. Service was prompt but overly friendly and not much attention was paid to us after order submitted. Definantly order the bruschetta and the original with mushroom and pancetta. Fun area to visit.
