This is my fav spot and first stop in Tribeca. The pizza frittata is absolutely THE BEST in the city. I never had Neapolitan pizza as good as this. I encounter Nothing but love when I come inside. It's the best pizza in the city, hands down.

Gosh darn, someone at the table ate that sprig of basil on the pizza. hmm, maybe next I'll be quick and grab it, but hey, my slice did have a circle of cheese on it, I shouldn't complain. I did like the sauce.

Went to Luzzo's tonight with my wife, as I really wanted some very good Neapolitan pizza, and was not in the mood to schlep out to Brooklyn. The reviews were very positive, so we decided to give it a try. And we are very glad we did! We had two pizzas, the Bufala and the Speck. Both were superb, like being in Naples. This is NOT New York City pizza pie, it is real Italian traditional pizza. Paper thin on the bottom, not a lot of toppings, just enough for wonderful taste. Pies came out lightening quick after ordering, hot and delicious. The dough was wonderful, both pies so yummy I badly overate. Washed it down with a glass of the day's special wine. I was concerned about the service after reading the reviews here, but they must have really upgraded the staff - the service was excellent! Water glasses refilled promptly and frequently without asking, order taken quickly, friendly but not intrusive waiter, all good. I wish all the restaurants I frequent had service this good. It might have had something to do with the fact that we went early and it was uncrowded - less than half full when we arrived, mostly full by the time we left, but it was very good. All in all, highly recommended, and we will be back to try some of the other pies!

The arugula pizza was light and flavorful, perfect for a hot day.

I am from Pozzuoli (NA) Sophias' Loren hometown. I have been living in Toronto for about 20 years and things that I miss the most is the authentic Pizza Napoletana, fresh Mozzarella di Bufola and la Pastiera Napoletana. I do go to New York often for pleasure, actually, believe or not, one of the reason is because of Luzzo's. This is the only restaurant in North America where I can taste the real pizza Napoletana! So when I get depressed of being home sick, I do o to NYC and go to Luzzo's e mi sembra di stare a casa. Forza Napoli. Luzzo's, I am coming again on January 28. Ciao e a presto.

Clearly I have pizza on the brain because after yesterday’s Motorino post, I am practically jumping out of my seat to write about another superb Italian pie spot. Ladies and gentleman, I give you…Luzzo’s! Luzzo’s is where you want to go for friendly and efficient service, low key atmosphere and delicious authentic Italian food from the heart of Naples. Although the restaurant accommodates a number of tables, it is often difficult to find a seat (power through the wait or try delivery/takeaway). Forget the rest and let’s get serious… go to Luzzo’s for the food. The Gnocchi Sorentina is outstanding (think perfectly made homemade pasta with mozzarella, basil and a touch of creamy tomato sauce). However, I swear, fireworks will go off when you try the pizza! My favorite is the Arugola which has tomato sauce, mozzarella, prosciutto, shaved parm and a heaping bed of leafy arugola (obviously). All of their pizzas are made in a traditional coal oven and include layers of fresh ingredients true to the Napoletana style of cooking. Pies are around $20 for a 12” and $25 for a 16”.
