Lazzara's Pizza Cafe Ratings and Reviews
I was looking for a place near Penn Station to meet a friend for drinks, dinner and catching up. This was my first time at Lazzara's and we couldn't have been happier. The place is clearly familiar and popular with people who work in the area. The pizza is just the thin crust kind I love. The arugula salad was delicious, well-prepared and very fresh. The wait staff was attentive but not pushy. We plan on coming back and I've recommended Lazzara's to friends already. Next time I will try a pasta dish or some fish.
Last minute we tried this restaurant . Tucked away in the heart of the city it felt like you were in Italy. The food very fresh and delicious. Very tiny place casual and nice. On the 2nd floor out of the way. Informal but everything cooked perfectly. The eggplant appetizer with tomatoes was perfection. Pizza good too. Half pies available. Very well priced
Absolutely terrible! Our pizza arrived with the crust burned and black! Not just a brown crust but totally charred and black! I cannot believe the server would even try to give this to us. And she dropped it off at the table and never came back to see how we were doing.-- probably because she knew how bad it was! We ended up bringing the totally uneaten pizza back up to the front where they finally made us a new one. Still the servers never bothered to check on us other than to deliver the food. So we were not even able to get refills on our water!
When we arrived at 5:45 the place was totally empty. That should've been a clue how bad they were. Next time we will take heed and leave.
What made the pizza seem even worse, is that we had had a wonderful pizza at John's two night's previously. Next time we will return to John's or go to Joe's!
I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of character, cozy; the square, thin crust pizza is excellent, grilled vegetables are delicious as well as the penne pesto. The best part is the price; unheard of in manhattan, and near penn station and the theater! I can't wait to go back.
Service was terrible, restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday night. Before we went to the restaurant, we called and asked for the corkage fee, and we were told that the restaurant did not accept wines other than from their listing. Once we arrived, we noted that the wine list was extremely terrible and unacceptable. We addressed the server concerning this matter, and if we could pay the corkage, and her disdainful and despicable response was that we could not open our wine, and regarding the wine list that "I did not prepare the wine list. "
At that moment, we were about to leave because of the server's terrible treatment to us, but unluckily decided to stick with the place and ordered a favioli soup as an appetizer. It tasted worse than a canned soup.
We attempted to let the server know that the soup was unacceptable, but eve though the restaurant was almost empty, she did not come back for at least ten minutes and we left. The worst of my reviews on the service of this place. Not recommended at all.
Made a reservation for 8 people at 7pm and even though they did have the reservation and plenty of free space, nobody had set up the table before we arrived (right at 7pm, not early) so we all stood there for 10 minutes while they set up. Then they just were not attentive to us at all throughout the meal, we kept having to wave someone down when we needed something. Could be a fun little spot but their staff needs to seriously step up their game.
I went twice in one week. First meal was pizza and it was very good. Good service and nice atmosphere. On my second visit, I had the ravioli which I didn't care for. I thought the red sauce tasted salty. The house salad was good. Service was also good on the second visit. Great location for a pre-Broadway food stop.
Best best pepperoni and cheese pizza ever! It made me greasy and happy. I love the slightly darkened thin crust. My only complaint was that the air conditioning seemed to be out so it was a bit warm, but otherwise an amazing time. Tucked away on the second floor, a real slice of old New York.
Small and quaint. Cozy and friendly. Pizza has wonderful fresh taste and great sauce. You can order from several options on the menu or build your own. Pizza does take some time to be made fresh so order an appetizer. Servers were very pleasant and efficient. We will return.
Although the server was bored with being at work, the pizza was great and the drinks were cheap, especially for the location. we also ordered mozzerella sticks as an appetizer and it came with like 8 or 9 (usually you only get 5 or 6) which was a great plus too!
My only complaint is that when we arrived for our reservation, we clearly indicated that we had an Open Table reservation. The waitress that seated us, did not check us into the Open Table system, so we got a no show email. The food is a good value. It's not the best Italian food, but the portions are generous and the pizza is good.
