    We had lunch, sat in the restaurant which is in the rear. You’d never know there was a restaurant back there. Up front it’s a regular pizzeria but not with regular pizza! Excellent quality food with a big price tag! You could spend over $100 for a pizza with 5 slices. It’s very different than your NY slice. I loved it. I thought $15 for a small arugula salad was completely overpriced!

    We had a pizza variety board - they cut each slice into multiple pieces so we can have a sampler platter. The service was outstanding - server was willing to answer all our questions, didn't rush us and was happy to let us sit and talk as long as we like. Great after work gettogether spot. A must go!

    Our group was from out of town and we were so excited to get some delicious pizza. The reviews seemed like the perfect place to go. We had a party of 8. The pizza was delicious and we all enjoyed our meals. However, the waiter that took care of us did not bring my moms water until she had asked 3 times and I finally asked a 4th. We were able to look past that because the food was so good. However, close to the end of the meal I knew I should go ahead and ask the waiter to split the check in case that was a problem. He said no it wouldnt be a problem at all so we asked him to split it for us. Several minutes later he brought one check. I asked him to split it like he said he would and he got very defensive and said he could not do that. When I explained that I asked him to split it and he said that was fine he got visibly angry with us and told us to look around at how busy we were. WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THE RESTAURANT! he FINALLY split the check for us but told us one person had to pay the tip as he could not split that. He would not let me pay for the tip with my card and said it had to be cash, I did not have cash. HIs manager was standing there telling him to accept my card but he would not. We were a group of women who were being called liars and treated with much disrespect. I would never go there again after the way we were treated.

    Cute back room through the pizzeria. We shared these appetizers: Eggplant Parmesan - delicious, cheesy, thin sliced eggplant Burrata with tomato and arugula - very delicious especially with the house-made foccacia. Arancini - very nice, crispy on the outside, creamy rice, cheese, peas, sauce on the inside with a very fresh tomato sauce. We had a half palam pizza which is a unique version of pizza, very much like Roman pizza -square and very thin. Very enjoyable. Nice service. Not expensive. Busy place - the tables filled up several times while we were there. Would go again. Nice place for a get together - casual, good food, not expensive.

    Service is good and the owner makes for a lively ambiance if he is around, but unfortunately it's definitely not the best pizza in NYC, the dough is not good and the toppings are tasteless. Just go for a beer, to chat with a date in the evening, when the back room is empty.

    The food was far more expensive than one would expect from a NYC pizzeria. It was going for gourmet and never got there. The margherita pizza was mostly flavorless. If you're looking for an authentic NYC pizza experience, there's a Famous Rays (or Ray's Famous) up the block. If you want high end pizza, then Lombardis or Grimaldis will do you nicely. But this is neither and, as such, nowhere.

    love this place, such a hidden gem! amazing pizza and there is a secret inside room which is very cosy and has a nice painting on the wall. you can go for their palams (1 palam=2 square slices, so be careful), but i happen to love the kale cesar salad too.

    The setting is eccentric: a small windowless room behind what seems to be a standard pizza parlor. There is also a kitchy mural on the wall. However, the service is exceeding friendly and kind of old-world, and very skilled and enthusiastic. We went for the pizza, which we were told is excellent, in "roman style." Indeed is was terrific--served as square slices or long, two row half pies or a full pie. The eggplant parmigianna was like none we have had before--sublime. And, they head excellent Italian reds by the glass and, believe it or not, an superb Italian beer--Ama--a kind of Belgian Ale with a touch of honeysuckle. Beer aficionados---salut.
