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!

A couple of us took a trip to Luzzo's from the UES, and it was worth it! We got a couple of salads, two 12" pizzas and some wine. Service was great and friendly. A nice selection of wine by the glass and our waiter suggested one that I loved. Normally, when getting wine by the glass I accept that it will be just fair. I docked them half a point for service because I had to ask for water twice. The pizza is the star. We had the Martha, mozz, truffle pate prosciutto basil no tomato sauce, plus the tomato sauce, mozz, ground sausage and basil pizza (#6). Yes we spent a lot of money, at $45 per person, but for pizza this good, why not. It was a great dinner. Plus the girl watching was excellent.

Since my last review, the family has gone to Luzzo's multiple times. We have now sampled different pizzas, salads and pastas. Simply put, the place is great. The one thing that comes out of a Luzzo's experience is the quality of the ingredients. Whether it is a Ceasar salad with just the hint of anchovies in the backround and the crunch of fresh croutons; the crispiness of the fried calamari, the creaminess of the fresh buffala mozzarella and cherry tomato salad, the appitizers are uniformly wonderful. The pastas are surprisingly great. and truly remind me of being in Italy. So far we have had the tagliatelle bolognese, spagetti carbonara and the lasagna - each better than most top tier Italian restaurants in the City. While the portion size is not large, it is right. Two can clearly share one appetizer, one pasta and a small pizza. The pizza remains the star. We have had the Margarita, the Margarita with sausage and the 4 Cheese - each memorable. The service remains friendly and efficient. Noise level high when full. Crowd - mostly 20's and local. Go for it - you'll be very happy. Amities Gourmandes, ally's dad

Now that the Neopolitan pizza craze has hit NYC, this is a place not to miss. Went last night with Ally after a killer volleyball game (She won!) around the corner. Truly great pizza. Sauce, cheese, crust first rate. Unlike some other reviewers, I find the staff very friendly, informed about what they are serving, and really trying to be there to serve you. While the prices are high for pizza, the product is first rate. The pasta and salads look great and I will report on them after our next visit. Amities Gourmandes, Ally's Dad

The pizza is so delicious, especially the crust (although the pizza has very small blobs of cheese, but it's still so good that it doesn't really matter). I had high hopes for this place, but the wait staff is strange, unattentive, and made me feel like I was putting them out by simply being there. 4 of us sat down and ordered 4 drinks, and the spacey waitress only brought 2 drinks and disappeared. We gave her about 5 minutes figuring maybe they had to restock the bar, and then when we asked where the other 2 drinks were, she said "sure" as if we had only just asked for it. That's just one of many examples of why this place was a little frustrating. All that annoying stuff aside, I would go back because the pizza is that good.
