Granduca di Sicilia
Best pizza in the cityNever disappoints. This place is tucked away on an invisible spot on 24th, but the restaurant is large, and the tables are very comfortably spaced - its almost like being out of New York. If the bald guy is on duty as the pizza chef, you won't get a finer pizza in NYC.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved Granduca. The foodI loved Granduca. The food was excellent and the staff was so friendly and attentive. Its an adorable find and the open kitchen is so clean it sparkles from the dining room.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, great foodI have been to Granduca di Sicilia several times, and I have always been very pleased with both food and service. The Pizza is fenomenal (like a real pizza you eat in Italy, thin crust, crunchy), the pasta is fantastic and the seafood entrees are outstanding.
I personally also love the ambience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMcivilized Sicilian oasis by Mad SqA fabulous place for a business lunch or leisurely dining with a friend. The decor is wonderful; just as in Italy, it is bright enough to actually see your food! And there's enough space between tables to feel civilized have pleasant, private conversations. A refreshing contrast to the ear-splitting crush of Eataly just half a block away, and with just as good Sicilian food. Ample portions, well served, very tasty. Traditional pasta dishes were excellent, and my family is from Bagheria, Sicily, so I have a pretty decent base of comparison.
Much more upscale than Tappo, across the street, much more civil and peaceful than Eataly. A neighborhood gem indeed, and beautifully decorated, too, with excellent southern Italian style ceramics.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined with friends whoWe dined with friends who are Venetians and all agreed that the food was very good, the menu interesting, the wine list adequate, the service quite attentive, and the ambience quite pleasant. I would not, however, describe the offerings as extraordinary, although the overall experience was quite acceptable.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMthe service was authenticthe service was authentic and personalized, filled with great energy!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a WINNER!!!!!This is a hidden gem, if you get the opportunity go.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSicilian Culinary HeavenIt felt like being back in Sicily!
