What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

PizzArte is not just another pizza joint. It also happens to be an art gallery. That must have sounded awesome in the business plan.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

What a find! Perfect for a healthy lunch before a city center matinee performance . Service was excellent; the upstairs dining area was clean, modern and comfortable.
The minestrone soup was fresh and delicious; pizza outstanding.

Great real Italian pizza! The food was delicious, but when I first entered the building, it was 11:15 AM. I had reservations for 11:30 and was told by the hostess, several times, that I would have to arrive at 11:30 and that they were not open until then, which was fine, I understood. When I got there at 11:30, however, there was a family already getting their pizza! Which means that somebody seated them and served them before 11:30. Maybe I didn't get preferential treatment because I'm not white? Not sure what it is, but that was kind of jarring. Additionally, I was offered spring water but did not know it would cost me $7 to get it. They should be a little more transparent with that.

Other than those two things listed above, the lady at the bar was great. She recommended drinks for me and her service was quick and efficient. Plus the food was delicious. Can't say enough about the delectable dough. The rest of the staff were also nice and accommodating.

Nice place with nice people. Think it was pricey, but that might be an Englishman in NY! My rib-eyed steak wasn’t brilliant, bit chewy. Atmosphere was good and generally a well run establishment. 50/50 if I’d go back again.

First time visit - Excellent Neapolitan-style pizza with traditional Italian antipasti, contorni, primi and secondi options. Our pizzas had chewy, sourdough crusts with much bite and character, excellent mozzarella with a few toppings done just right. Choices of white or red sauce on some pies. A simple salad of arugula, parmesan, croutons and dressing was bright and fresh. Wait staff are Italian, knowledgeable, somewhat suggestive in terms of upselling on food and wine. It was VERY loud on a Friday might, partially due to large convivial crowd but also due to high volume, lousy music. Music program could best be described as soft covers of top 40 hits from last 30 years, played at max volume.

my husband is gluten free and this was the best pizza we have had. We had a spinach,goat cheese and beet salad to start that was delicious. We are from out of town and I searched the internet for pizza and was set to go elsewhere until I read a professional review on this restaurant.

Pizz'Arte has options for all tastes and dietary needs. They offer excellent gluten free pizza, terrific salads, and a variety of entrees, although I wouldn't order an entree because there are so many smaller dishes that are terrific and excellent for sharing.

You might walk right by PizzArte and not consider it. Even if you looked in, the downstairs bar area is nice but not alluring for dinner. Upstairs is another story. Tastefully modern with clean lines and comfortable seating. The food is delicious, inventive, and generously portioned. This is more than just pizza. I had a whole wheat pasta with chestnuts, mushrooms and sausage in a brown sauce that was just fabulous. There's a wonderful choice of wines by the glass. Prices for 55th st off Fifth are fantastic. The service is wonderful. We love it and will come here often as it is near Carnegie Hall, City Center and Manhattan theater club as well as 5th Ave. shopping.
