    Upscale pizza with creative toppings and a delicious crust. It's a small and comfortable restaurant with delicious pizza. Salads are also very good.

    The outdoor garden is worth an appetizer & glass of wine. However, the pizza isn't great. There are much better good options in the village.

    Very happy to have stumbled upon this place. Super affordable (especially for the neighborhood), yet no scrimping on the quality. Great pizza, salad and decently priced wine (around $12/glass). Service was attentive but not invasive. Loved the little courtyard in the back. It's a great place to eat, not break the bank and be able to have a conversation.

    Interesting take on pizza not your garden variety Thin crust. Wood burning oven Though pizza itself can be a bit soggy due to toppings. Nice selection of salads and wine beer. Worth a try

    The owner is amazing. We were there fort daughters 21st birthday party. They treated us like royalty! The pizza was the best we have had since Italy. The sauce on the meatballs was scrumptious! I loved the gluten free pizza. Definitely will return ASAP!!

  • Good but say NO to the clam pizza
    Valerina
    Dined on 7/17/2014
    We ordered two pizzas, the clam pizza (the restaurant's "signature" pizza) and the sopresatta pizza. The sopresatta was delicious!! The clam pizza was one of the worst things I've ever eaten. It was as if the chef dumped an entire can (yes, CAN) of chopped clams onto a white pizza. It was a slimy, soggy, briny mess. When our waiter saw that we had polished off our sopresatta pizza but left the clam pizza nearly untouched, he asked us how we liked everything. My husband politely said that we very much enjoyed ourselves but that the clam pizza had too many clams. The waiter huffed and said, "it's a clam pizza, what do you expect?!" and walked away. If they take so much pride in their clams then they should use fresh ones and not canned ones.

    Walked into a small but quant restaurant for a quick dinner. Greeted by nice staff and sat outside in charming little patio area. Ordered some beer and 2 pizzas for the 2 of us. Dinner came out in an appropriated amount of time and was piping hot. Taste was amazing! Highly recommend this place for a quick (or slow) dinner for couples.

    My girlfriend and I made a last minute reservation at this restaurant and it didn't disappoint! We got a bottle of wine that was very good, and it wasn't particularly expensive. We started with the small cheese, meat and olive board, and it was plenty for two people and very delicious. Then we split the spicy sopressata pizza (per our wait staff's suggestion) and it was awesome. The crust was perfect and the meat was very good. Finished with an espresso which was great, I loved the small neighborhood vibe and the wait staff was very nice.. would definitely go back!

    Enjoyed an early summer dinner here last week and got to sit outside on the back patio, which was nice. Service was very good (except for the hostress, who was reluctant to seat us outside when I asked, even though the dining room was half empty and the outdoor space was also not very crowded). The pizzas are the star attraction here. Great and unique ingredients. The salads are just OK. The arancini were too big and a gooey mess. Good wine list. Would go back.

    Visited PB for the 4th time in the past 6 months and they are getting better and better. The salads and apps are all very good-- I like the arugula and artichoke salad best. The Vongole pizza is a must try and the Nutella pizza for dessert(or dinner!) is incredible . Give it a try-- you will not be disappointed. One thing-- Ask for your pizza "well done"

    This is a great addition to the neighborhood. We had eggplant parm app along with a meat and cheese plate, arancini, an arugula salad and 5 pizzas. Everything was delicious. Service was attentive but we never felt rushed. Definitely going back.

    This restaurant is a gem. I have been several times in the past two months and each time I leave blown away by the freshness of the ingredients and the quality of the food. The dining room is lively and unfussy, but the music and waitstaff bring it up a notch. Every pizza I have tasted has been perfect. The salads are inventive without being fussy and always lightly dressed. The meatballs are all beef and the texture and size is exceptional. The eggplant and arancini were delicious too. And the lemon ricotta zeppole for dessert were pure bliss!

    We ate outside which was much better than being inside of the bar area. The food was delish and relatively fast. Would recommend for specialty pizza lovers.

    We were there on a Sunday night. Took the Sunday 3-course menuoffer for $30 including a beverage and coffee. Normally with these kind of menus, size and taste are at risk. But not here! Fresh Italian salad and a large meatball with red sauce and ricotta to start with. Both very tasty and clearly fresh prepared. Then a crispy Pizza Margherita. And finishing off with small zeppole (Italian doughnuts). Wow, just right from sweetness and texture, heavenly. Service was a high standard, though full and alway available. We even got a glass of wine on the house for the little bit longer wait. Ambiance is warm and cosy, we felt very comfortable. I highly recommend this place. What a value for money, unique in NYC. Best experience sins a long time.

    Loved Pizzetteria Brunetti! I returned twice in a week - NOT the norm for me. It's NOT over-priced; it's a quaint, upscale pizzeria (offering many delicious entrees as well), with a lovely outdoor patio, friendly staff, and GLUTEN-FREE options. The Pizzas and the variety thereof are outstanding. The portions of some selected entrees are a bit small for a person with a huge appetite (like myself), but the truth is these are the correct portions recommended by most nutritionists. So if you arrive with an enormous appetite then stick to their sandwiches and pizzas. If you are health conscious and counting calories then you'll LOVE their entrees, gluten-free options, and their outstanding Kal salad & eggplant parm! Something for everyone!

    I was in Naples last summer and was quite disappointed with their pizza. The sauce was delicious but the pizza itself was soggy. Pizzetteria Brunetti was amazing, I felt like I was in Naples. I woud definitely go back again and would recommend this restaurant to my friends.
