Lazzara's Pizza Cafe
The food was very good, had the gnocci bolognese and it was perfect! The service was fast, a bit too fast b/c i had about 4 minutes to eat my salad before the entree came out. But if you have theatre tickets and not much time the fast service works. They didn't rush us to leave though so if you wanted to hang around there was no real pressure. The atmosphere was just ok, needs a bit of an upgrade to the tables and overall look but for an affordable, tasty, quick meal it is perfect.
Poor service. We waited for 15 minutes and no one brought us menus or waters so we left.
Great Caesar dressing on the salad and incredible pizza
I’ve eaten at Lazzara’s on a few previous occasions and it is a great place for a casual dinner in the garment district. Great food at great prices.
The pizza was great I was surprised when I first ate it. I really enjoyed the food. Thanks for a great time.
Excellent restaurant! Group of 8 went, all 8 stated that it was best thin crust pizza ever had. Recommended to another family and they went a different day, same great review!! 12/10!!
Mediocre. Everything’s pretty over cooked and pizza is served on plastic trays. Very bland.
Amazing pizza! Would go back here in a heart beat! Great service wonderful pizza and great service.
Really great pizza and pasta. One of my favorites in the city. Not super fancy but well worth a visit
Cute, affordable, excellent service! Will be back during our next visit to NYC!
Great little find, no so far off the beaten path. Amazing pizza!
Pizza was very tasty but table crowded in corner and tight. Noise level very high due to big grump.
Ok food, but not a top choice for midtown. A few tourists who had been lulled to this quiet 1st floor restaurant. Poor wine, food not great, service disinterested. Also overpriced. 100s of better choices nearby.
The food was fantastic. The service was meh. Understaffed on a Monday night when clearly they had reservations for 3 large parties. But again, the food was fantastic!
I've only been there twice, but I love the food and the old timey feel of the place.
Nice small restaurant with quality food at a fair price.
Overall a decent unique pizza (square pie with a different style of crust). Not anywhere near the top on NYCs finest however. Way too much of an overpowering sweet sauce.
We had visited there several times in the past years. We were a little disappointed in the food quality this visit. But overall still a great place!
We chose Lazzara's as it was well rated and close to our hotel. My son had half a cheese pizza which amounted to three square slices - but he seemed to enjoy. My other son had a calzone with cheese and ham. We asked for a side of tomato sauce and were charged for it. My gnocchi with meat sauce was good and I had a salad to start. It's a small restaurant and there are stairs and a narrow hallway to enter. Not super inspiring decor and the staff was so-so. Overall, ok but wouldn't make a special trip.
I had a friend visiting from out of the country and they requested a "real pizza experience" - and Lazzara's certainly delivered! Very cute, old world looking 2nd floor pizzeria and Italian restaurant. I only had the margarita pizza so I can't speak to anything else on the menu but it was superb. Crispy, thin, perfect amount of sauce and cheese. I would absolutely eat here again anytime.
The best pizza ever. Warm and friendly. I always look forward to going.
The best pizza ever. I am going back this Thursday again.
Service slow tonite
No extra plates for pizza after our salad offered
No room on table for three pizzas
Pizza was amazing. Service was excellent.
The food was incredible! Everything we ordered was delicious. The staff was so nice, and it wasn't crowded at all.
Fantastic hidden gem
We loved Lazarra's warm ambience with delicious thin crust pizza, and the attentive servers!
Horrible customer service. Waitress was rude and also forgot to put in our order and waited an hour after we placed it to tell us. Emailed management and they never responded. Called the restaurant and “no manager was available.” Save your time and money and avoid this place!!
Not at all fault of the waitresses, but there wasn't enough help and we had to wait a while for our dessert and our salads were forgotten - but were brought to us upon request after our meal was served. Food is really good. Tight space, but that we knew about and adds to charm. We had an unfortunate incident where one of the patrons got sick by the bathroom (I was in there when this took place). I expected someone that worked there to notice this mess (and smell) but after about 8 min I had to let them know. Soon after it was cleaned. So, not our best experience at Lazarra's (our 4th visit), but we will return at some point.
Went for lunch on my way to the theater-what a great find! Delicious thin crust pizza, nice city restaurant on the second floor. Attentive service. Will be back!
Tucked away on the 2nd floor of what looks like it would be someone’s apartment, you may miss this quaint little place in the middle of the heart of mid town. You feel like you found a gem when inside with its cozy charm and delicious, very fairly priced Italian cuisine. It’s our go to place on the way to the theater district. My daughter claims it’s the best pasta she has had since in Rome.
Exceptional food and service.
You have to climb steps to get into this restaurant.
We booked Lazzara’s because we couldn’t get into our go to Italian restaurant in NYC. We ordered 2 pizzas which were very good and Chicken Parm. Which was very good. Restaurant is small and crowded. The waiter was just ok.
They burnt our fried ravioli appetizer, and when we asked for them to remake it the server had someone else bring us out 2 ravioli (for a table of 5) and inform us that was all they had because the rest were frozen! Pizza sauce had no flavor. We were not impressed at all!
Small but fun and busy pizza parlor. Fast & hot tasty pizza. Highly recommend!
Reservations are honored and the food is very good. Attentive service as well
Food and setting were fine.. terrible server. No water, no refills after requesting water, iced tea is a single serving without refills. Waiter asked if we wanted bread as an afterthought.. like it was a bother. If it comes with the meal.. why not bring it? Pasta wasn't drained and sat in a watery marinara. Waiter sat at the table directly behind us facing us to eat his own dinner. Never asked about our dishes.. never brought a check.. we had to interrupt his meal to get a check. With only one night to eat in Manhattan on this visit... we were very disappointed.
