A word from L'asso East Village
L’asso is proud to serve only ORGANIC flour and ORGANIC tomato sauce. Along with weekly new pizza creations, the L’asso menu also includes unique pasta, salads, and appetizer specials – as well as the city’s finest “legal” pizza. Favorites include Pizza al Tartufo (Portobello mushroom pesto, cheese, fresh rosemary, and truffle oil), Pizza San Daniele (prosciutto san daniele, mozzarella, arugula, parmigiano, and olive oil), and the wildly popular Margherita DOC, a pie so rich in history, a law was recently passed defining the proper way to prepare it.

    Dinner was good- not great, but good. Being that the service was friendly (despite a few mistakes & reminders), the bill was really cheap, and it was easy to get a table, I would recommend this place to others. There is better pizza in the neighborhood but it's nice to have a place to go to where you can rely on getting a table easily.

    This place used to be our "go to" solution for pizza, but our last dinner is making us re-think this. The menu appears to be shrinking (less options) and even though I noted in the OpenTable comments that we were there on my wife's birthday and a few days after our wedding anniversary, there was nary a peep from our server. Having dined there numerous times in the past, I don't have a problem holding them to a high standard, since I know what they are/were capable of.

    The food was great and the drinks were cheap. I really like how they allowed us to split our topping choices on the pizza. We were basically able to try 2 pizzas in one. I got to try a potato chip pizza and a mushroom. We also had a great waiter who was really attentive. He kept checking on us and asked what we thought of the pizza. I will definitely be back.

    What a gem! Ended up here with 4 friends on a Saturday night - they had plenty of room for us, though for the location and food I'm surprised by how empty it was. Service was lovely - everyone had a sense of humor, took time to explain things, was attentive about our progress through the meal, in general a pleasure to be around. fritti misti was a good collection of fried delights (minus mozzarella) - great fried zucchini. We got one of their large pizzas - don't be fooled, it's not a 29" round, more of a long rectangle - and it was really tasty. Definitely keeping this in mind for east village dinners & hoping it doesn't get discovered by too many!

    Excellent regular pizza and excellent gluten free pizza. Quality ingredients used, nicely put together and cooked just right. The desserts were also gluten free and excellent. Totally reasonable price for this quality and experience. We went early so it might be loud after 8:30p.

    Good food and fun environment. However the restaurant gave my reserved table (for my birthday) to a walk-in group, even though I was on time! They squeezed us (6 people) into a booth meant for 4, and then kept asking us if we wanted to move, even though they didn't have anything better. I was annoyed and felt like they should find us an adequate table, rather than look to us to make that decision.

    Really great pizza and place has a cool vibe. nice wine and beer but can be noisy. esp in the back. even small pizza is generous and can be split easily . needs more side dishes and salad is good, but not for 14.00. great happy hour prices :)

    This was my third visit to L'Asso EV. As usual, the service was super friendly and attentive and the food was exceptional. we had the fried tomatoes with fresh mozzarella (a favorite from previous visits), Ed;as meatballs (always delish) and medium pizza - half with Brussels sprouts and bacon (insane!) and half the L'Asso Supreme. Everything. Also, $6/glass happy wine special - can't beat it! was excellent

    Food was excellent, but service was very slow. We had a reservation for 8:30pm, but weren't seated until almost an hour later. However, the staff was very accommodating and comped a few drinks for us because of the wait, which we appreciated very much. Staff was also very friendly and food was excellent!! We will definitely come back.

    Had a good time, the space was pretty good, as well. Like the large pizza options, allows for a large group to split pizza, without needing a few pies, which would have a lot of table space taken up by the wood stones.

    I think I should have tried some of the dishes other than pizza. The bruschetta and the herbed fries that we had were great, but the pizza simply isn't my style. The 'happy hour' special on wines and beer are a nice added bonus.

    A bit noisy. Lots of groups. They moved us to a quieter table in order to accommodate a large group that came in after us. Pizza is delicious. Good wine and beer selections. We were a bit disappointed that they were "out" of the S'mores pizza (not the first time they've run out), but we had the Nutella pizza and salted caramel budino for dessert anyway.

    This was my second trip to L'Asso EV and it did not disappoint. We tried the gluten free crust pizza (in 2 varieties) on this trip and the crust was pretty good, though I prefer the regular crust. It is good that they have the gluten free option though for those who cannot tolerate wheat flour. I would also recommend the Eda's meatball appetizer and the roasted beet salad. Service is super attentive and friendly. An all around great dining experience.

    Ate at L'asso last night with a group of six and had a really fantastic time. We got the Margherita D.O.C, The Pistachio pizza, and one with arugula, prosciutto and parmigiana. We also had the L'asso salad, the arugula salad and the minted peas, with cheese cake for dessert and two bottles of wine. Perfect amount of food for 6. Everything was really incredible, particularly the l'asso salad and the pistachio pizza. The atmosphere is casual but fun, the service was prompt but not overbearing, and the decor is really simple and nice. Definitely recommended, especially for groups or late-night dining.

    Always solid food. I've been to L'asso Nolita and loved it, so I really wanted to try the East Village location. The food was similar: consistently good. However, the service was extremely slow. We waited over an hour for pizza. They sat us 20 minutes after our reserved time at a table for 4 (there were 6 of us). If you can handle the poor service for the good food, go for it. I recommend taking out next time.

    I went here for my birthday dinner with a group of friends. I have been to the other L'asso location many times and love it. This location is a bit more spacious and was easily able to accomodate our size, the food was as good as always. We were there from about 6:30-9 and the space was very quiet, which we enjoyed. Around the same time the other location is a lot more busy so it's harder to chat and to stay for a while. Not an issue at this location, great space, great food, great staff. It looked like they might have an outdoor space that I hope to try soon!

    i am unsure about if I would return here again - the food was good - no question about that - I had the margarita pizza and meatballs...but it was quite expensive for pizza. $30 for a margarita pizza is absolutely overpriced...esp when there are many other great pizza spots in the neighborhood that charge way less..the service was mixed...the waiter was great - no complaints there - the hostess was awful...she was rude...when we arrived and I said I had a reservation she said "well we're not ready so you should just go drink at the bar for a while" when I asked how long the wait would be - she had no idea - she also had no interest in helping as she didn't even want to know what name my reservation was under..also the music was way 2 loud

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 3/16/2012
    The East Village location was disappointing compared to what I've experienced at the Nolita branch. There were no specials, the menu touted an item which they apparently no longer even offer, and the Margherita pizza was undercooked, doughy and wasn't served hot. While the space here is roomy and comfortable, it's lacking in energy, coziness and a cool vibe. I would gladly travel a bit further downtown to the original location to enjoy better food and a more intimate atmosphere.
