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”.

I come in NY for business every 2 months! This is the only restaurant in NY C where you can taste the real pizza! Quando la pizza mi manca troppo, vado da Luzzo's e mi sembra di stare in Italia

Perfect spot for a bottle of wine, salad and pizza. So good and so happy I found this place. Try the goat cheese salad it's extra special.

Ordered a bufala that tasted like average american pizza. not impressed at all. Also, I was not thrilled by atmosphere: loud tv playing the worst of what italian music has to offer.

Excellent Italian food in a very charming restaurant. It's so refreshing to find a NYC restaurant where the staff is welcoming, courteous, and friendly. And the food was delicious.

As Italian who lives in Italy I can ensure it is the best pizza I tried in NY!
