I went to Luzzo's last night for the first time, with high expectations for a crispy coal oven pizza. The sauce was runny, the crust was limp (it had the texture of something that had been heated in a microwave), and the pizza was served lukewarm. There was a miserly topping of anchovies. The wooden booth seats have no recline and hence no comfort. I've had better frozen pizza from Trader Joes. On the plus side, I thought the mozzarello de buffalo was fine, though my friend said it was tasteless.

I've ordered from Luzzo's and dined in several times over the last 2 years and food was great. But, the prices recently went up again and the food quality is not as good as it used to be. I just spent $24 on what used to be my favorite pie (and was under $20 a month ago) and it was only OK. Also, ordered a Ceasar salad that was unbelievely small, had no parmesan and not very fresh lettuce. If you've been here before, don't expect it to be as good as you're used to.

Just went here last night with a friend who was in from out of town. Luzzo's was recommended to me by another friend. Both have spent extensive time in Italy, including Naples, and said the pizza (we ordered the truffle pizza) was right on. It was delicous, with a light, but crisp crust. We enjoyed was the way it doesn't sit heavily in the stomach. The tomato sauce was lovely as well--again, not too heavy nor acidic. Caesar salad was a bit skimpy and boring (just Romaine, croutons, and dressing) for the $5 price tag. Tiramisu was an airy and satisfying finish to the meal. Excellent macchiato. Cozy atmosphere and fast, friendly service that was laid back and not at all intrusive.

The pizza is amazing pure and simple.

I'm Italian and I spent last June in New York. With some friends I went to Luzzo's and I can guarantee that both pizza and Italian food were just like to be in Italy. I was there with some Korean and French friends and thay thank me still now for that dinner. I strongly suggest Luzzo's if you want eat Italian food, there is nothing better in New York.

Luzzo has the best traditional neapolitan pizza in Manhattan hands down, executed to the T, the pizza is crispy and hairy, try and fold it when they present it to you, notice how well it stays up, the dough is carefully cared, the tomato sause is fresh yet cooked and sesoned enough, the mozzarella di bufala is fresh and drained of the excess of water, the ambiance , Michele and Peppe, do nothing else but adding to the fun, you can't help but having feeling a child eating simply great pizza.

Have ordered from here a couple of times and was very disappointed both times. The first time I ordered, I was informed that the kitchen was "out of dough" at 7 PM on a Friday night. So I ordered some pasta and a few sandwiches. The sandwiches were mostly cheap hero bread with very small amounts of filling. The pizza was decent. I ordered again last week and received a small portion of chicken parm that was tasteless and greasy. The pizza that I had ordered in addition arrived soggy. I would stay away, their prices have really increased and their quality has actually gone down.
