Pizza was not hot. Sent it back and only the plate came back hot. Seems like not oven baked ?Felt like the crust was premade.
Been here many times and first time it was disappointing .

Quaint spot, out of the way. Great food and service. The music makes you want to dance. Will definitely visit again when I’m in town. Make sure to order the meatballs. The artichokes were delicious as was the eggplant. You simply can’t go wrong.

Came here for lunch with my mom and cousin after a visit to the Vessel. We had the Arancini, the veggie pizza, burrata with artichoke, and a salad. We shared everything, and they all tasted great. The staff was very nice. I would go back for sure.

My favorite restaurant in the hood. Amazing food, great service. Cute and fun. They store their red wines a tad too warm, but an ice bucket takes care of that in 2 minutes, so nothing to fret over. The Pizzas are fantastic and the Artichoke appetizer and the Amatriciana Pasta are out of this world delicious.

Really good food, you won't regret going there at all. I feel like the pizzas could have been cooked a little longer, a little on the doughy side, but the overall experience was great, so I'd honestly go back and maybe just ask for my pizza to be cooked a little more well done.

The food is great, and the waiters accommodating, but the prices are pretty steep. Maybe it's because of Covid so we will see.

The pizza is delish. Sometimes this type of pizza gets burned on the bottom, but they did it perfectly. Cute location and cool to check out the art galleries nearby. Had a vaccine appt at Javits and then walked 10 minutes down to grab dinner. The inside of teh restaurant is definitely more charming than the outside and is even pretty open air.

My 12 year old daughter and I went here for dinner and we absolutely loved it! The service was great! I asked the waiter to make a fancy Virgin drink for my daughter (she wanted to feel grown lol) and he whipped her up a virgin Mojito. She absolutely loved it! The Ambience was relaxing and OMG the food!!! We ordered the Ovest pizza and it was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend this spot either for family or for a date (has great vibes) we will be back!

Their oven baked pizzas is very good and their service is great. Their Bufala pizza is their signature dish and cannot go wrong with this selection. Hospitality service is great and our server accommodates our needs and food/drink recommendations. Food and drinks came out the right time and good service. They have more desert selections other than the menu.

The only thing that threw me off was their drink program. Some of their signature drinks on the drink menu they don't have the ingredients to make the cocktail, which didn't affect the dining experience, but questionable. They made an awesome drink that wasn't on the drink menu, but is similar to the one i requested.

Given the verdict, I would update the food and drink menu. Hospitality wise, they did a great job and would go again soon or when the weather gets better. Next time try their different pizzas and try their nutella pizza, which isn't on the menu.

Got there at 2200hrs having booked for that time, was told we can take our seats but that the kitchen would close in ten minutes. It was a quiet night but I thought that it was open till midnight, still we were served and the pizza and service was good.

We live in the neighborhood and typically order in. This time we decided to go to Ovest and eat in. One of the few last places in NYC with that authentic NY vibe. This place was here before there was Hudson Yards! Service here is nothing special but they are efficient. The place needs a bit of a face lift, but that’s part of its charm. You come for the pizza and it’s worth it.

We were meeting friends who were just coming into the city for dinner and didn't want to go too far from Penn Station. Ovest is perfect. We had pizzas and pastas and all tasted great. The atmosphere is very NY, you are close enough to hear a quiet conversation yet you can talk to the people at the end of the table in a big party. Lots to look at, I think there was a TV .
I would def come here again...

Ovest Pizzoteca is a down-to-earth and friendly restaurant, with very helpful and kind staff and serve high quality pizzas and other items on the menu. While I have used as a quick fix for food while in the Chelsea area, I feel it would equally work as a place for a proper sit down meal due to the relaxed ambience and friendly customers. I highly recommend Ovest Pizzoteca.
