The food is soooo good. The service was OK on this visit - we have had better there. It was crowded and took 30 minutes to get our RESERVED table though the staff was apologetic. Nevertheless- every bite of food was FANTASTIC.

Another absolutely fantastic meal! The drunken goat cheese salad and Bronzino are to die for and keep us coming back. The service could not be better and we look forward to a return visit.

apizz was a great find. Initially
apizz was a great find. Initially I was tentative about the location and description concerning the lack of windows. Neither proved to be a problem. The neighborhood is friendly and to be perfectly honest, once in the restaurant, which is warm and inviting with the view of the large wood burning oven, i did not notice the windows! The wine selection was nice and reasonably priced wine. The food...fantastic! The gnocchi with honey braised beef short ribs was one of the best dishes I have had in the longest time. All of us loved every dish! I will return soon, very soon.

Went with a friend - very cozy and romantic environment. Service was great and very much appreciated. Great drinks, pretty standard prices for drinks in NY - $12 a pop. My friend and I split with Insalata di Formaggio and the Butternut Squash Sage ricotta-filled ravioli. It was declicious! Small entree plate (four large ravioli pieces) - definitely quality over quantity at this place. Would recommend and would go back for a date night.

I went here for my 3 year
I went here for my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend. The service was great, the environment was just what I wanted. It was simple but romantic, the price point was just right. It felt special but not trying too hard and it was just a cute and warm environment. It is such a little gem, the oven burning was really nice and created a romantic feel. It was a great time.

out of town guests delighted in our meal together from the first sip of wine through the meal. Nice service and great branzino and good veggies. No complaints.

Apizz was a realy nice surprise. It's tucked away below Canal St. and doesn't look like much from the outside. When you walk it it also doesn't look like much. But then you eat and you realize that the low key nature of the decor combined with the excellent food make for a perfect combination. The appetizer we had was incredible as was our main course. Following it all up with the affogato made it a perfect dinner. We'll be back.

Three visits have placed this
Three visits have placed this firmly on my list of favorites. A charming room and good but non-intrusive service is SOP here. Appetizers uniquely combine old favorites with intriguing twists. The lemon garlic shrimp is a winner but the warm octopus salad is best. The grilled or roasted bronzino is cooked to perfection. Sadly, the last lasagna special was not: pasta floated in a thin sauce overpowered by cheese. Fortunately not norm. It can be a bit noisy, probably the brick walls. It's always nice to have a special request quietly and efficiently provided.

This is my second time to this restaurant and on both occasion, my experience was the same. When you first walk into the restaurant you are greeted with a smile, you are seated right away and they don't hesitate coming to assist you. The room setting is so calming and soothing. The Food is excellent especially the Skate fish, unbelievable good.

Apizz has a fantastic atmosphere
Apizz has a fantastic atmosphere - really surprises you once you're inside. Great food (try as many appetizers as you can, the flatbread pizzas are FANTASTIC). I ordered the Gnocchi and it was delicious. Split a flourless chocolate cake with my date and it was delicious. Great menu all around, great service, great venue!

I was there with my parents and it was perfect to bring them there. We arrived early and there was not so much noise.
The service is great and food good.

On one of the few desolate and quiet streets left in Manhattan lives this very nice quiet restaraunt with great drinks and food!

Pretty restaurant with good
Pretty restaurant with good food and excellent service. We all had the Bronzino which was delicious. Only negative is the menu hasn't changed and its more of a winter menu. I would suggest they offer specials that are more seasonal. Would definitely go back.

Great date night
Let me start by saying that despite the somewhat small portions for the price, the good was incredible and worth it. We had the shrimp and chorizo followed by the meatballs and gnocchi. Everything was full of flavor and quite filling. Our waiter was pretty good although he could have been more attentive (we refilled our own wine glasses). The restaurant has a casual yet romantic feel and I would not hesitate to go back.

Best of the best
Everything delicious!! Best meatballs in the city. Great food you won't have better anywhere!!! Must go.

my favorite New York Restaurant
I found Apizz after going to the Sunshine theater and wandering around a bit. What a find! I had the wild boar lasagna the first time, and many times after. Then I tried the ravioli with the butternut squash,,,,and it is heaven! I have been there hundreds of times and the food never disappoints! The staff is wonderful and the ambiance is cozy and warm. It is a gem in the city!!

The butternut squash ravioli is to die for and I keep coming back for it! Gnochhi is also delicious. I'd highly recommend this spot.

first time at the resturant great food would recomend this to friends and family.

excellent food on Lower EAst Side
This is a quiet place (at least at 7 pm) on a side street with really good Italian food. We had a great whole roasted bronzino and an interesting and delicious appetizer of polenta and oyster mushrooms. Would definitely go back. Not cheap, but we shared everything and it was plenty.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, service and ambiance. The butternut squash cheese ravioli is to die for!

Just one street in from all the young hipster LES vibe, you'll find a quiet and all grown-up atmosphere at Apizz.
The diners seem to lean toward the mature crowd as well.
The food was good, big flavors(a little salty) and pretty big portions, this restaurant seems and feel like an old school Italian.
I had a pleasant time, only con would be all the orange lights.

Perfect low key experience
My wife and I were in LES for our anniversary. We were looking for a quant, reasonably laid back place with excellent food. Fortunately, we found Apizz which was exactly what we were looking for - ambiance, food and service were all perfect.

Gem of a place
Loved the atmosphere. Sort of a "hole in the wall" but once you find it the ambiance was outstanding. Started with a pizza appetizer that was terrific. The entree's were unique (i had the stuffed meatballs) and all delicious. Took a client and they loved it. The restaurant recommendation came from a colleague who had eaten there the week before and it didn't dissapoint.

even though we've veggie we loved
We had the best date night, we loved the 4 cheese pizza, and spinach salad was amazing!

I have been here many times. It is a little pricey ($24 for ravioli), but the food is delicious and the staff is friendly and pleasant.
The place is lovely inside. They call you to confirm your reservation and accomodate you as best they can in terms of time.
As a matter of fact, I was there this week and am going again tonight.

Great Casual LES Italian
I found the food to be exceptional and the service nearly flawless. I especially enjoyed my entree of lobster risotto and the whole roasted branzino, which one of my friends ordered. I also liked the short ribs gnocchi, although it was a bit salty for my taste. The friend who ordered it complained that there was more sauce than meat and that she thought the gnocchi was a bit pasty.

Grandma Italian was never like this
Arrived a bir early for our reservation, was greeted with a friendly smile, haned my confirmation from Open Table, and we were seated. Subdued lighting, music at moderate sound level, Our friends arrived, waiter came buy took our drink order, told us about special of the day. From first moutful to final delicious dessert it was a fantastic eating experience. With only 12 tables in main dining, they were all full when we left at 9PM on a very windy, cold Tuesday night.
Have already recommended it to other friends.

Better than its rep
Very underrated. Among the very best finds in a long time.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very impressive Italian
Apizz's atmosphere is really warm and inviting. The Pera Con Prosciutto was a knockout with sweet and salt in perfect balance and the pear cleansed the palate. The polenta was perfect and creamy. The Pesce Arrosto (branzino) had a few bones but tender and stuffed with rosemary, lemon and thyme. I've had better branzino with more char on the outside. However, the inside was cooked to flaky perfection. The Veal was also good, albeit rich. The Gnocchi Con Ragu Di Carne was excellent. Two people can share dessert. The Tortino Al Cioccolato was a perfect balance of bitter and sweet and the vanilla gelato sets it off beautifully. The Melo Al Forno is huge and tastes like a French Apple pie. The waitstaff and pace were great. Highly recommended.
