Lombardi's has a wonderful reputation in NYC. Recently I was in the city and treated an office staff of 14 to 5 pizzas. I had a bit of sticker shock when the bill was over $110.00. I was again surprised that they did not accept credit cards. I felt certain for that price tag, it would be the best pizza I would have ever eaten. I was disappointed that the slices did not hold up. The crust had a good flavor, and the outside was very crisp from the brick oven. The middle of the pie seemed very soggy and undercooked, nothing like I have ever eaten. Lombardi's did deliver, and did so in a very timely fashion.

Lombardi's is very good, but Lasso is much better- it's one block away. Tourists go to Lombardis where locals go to Lasso. That says it all.

Every time someone comes in town my friends insist on dragging everyone down to Lombardi's. Yes, the place is historically significant, but the pizza is just the same as every other brick oven place around, and you'll wait a ridiculous amount of time to get it. If you want good pizza for a good price at a "New York" place, just go to the Original Ray's and don't waste your time at Lombardi's.

On a quest to find the best pizza in NYC I've started with the first pizzaria in the U.S. Lombardi's Pizza. Lombardi's is indeed an excellent coal oven pizza. It is thin sliced pizza, so thin that the first bite of the slice is outweighed by the sauce, cheese and pepperoni and you need to hold it up (I think this is a good thing). The combination of the sauce and mozzarela cheese is perfect and the thick slices of pepperoni work well together. The dough is lite and chewy and the crust has a strong taste of salt and is well charred by the coal oven. Overall this is a great Pizza and an icon for Pizza in America.

The pizza is excellent here. I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't know if the hype would be true about this place, but the sauce, fresh mozzerella & romano cheeses, and fresh basil are a wonderful combination. It's a bit expensize for pizza, but it's certainly worth the price for an occational pizza pie.

The pizza is good but by far not "THE BEST" I have ever tasted. It was above average but definitely not worth the trip out there if you don't live in the area. It tatses like any other brick oven pizza joint so I'm not sure what the hype was about....

This is the best pizza you will ever taste. Even though it was lunch time and the delivery time was long, it was worth every last stinking minute. You need this pizza in your life.
