Excellent pizza & calzone. Unique flavors, traditionally served. Knowledgable staff. Owner present and engaged. Best pizza we've had in NYC after 20+ different eateries. A must stop.

I love this place. I am Italian 100% and pizza here is authentic 100%. Roberto, the owner, is just the best ever. They have big table for large groups and it is absolutely kids friendly. The ingredients are fresh and tasty. This is the best pizza in the neighborhood!

Say at bar. Bar tender was okay. Pizza was delicious but not the best neopolitan. Overpriced for what it was.

The pizza is very good, and the Gluten Free pizza is the best I ever had. The only thing is that for pizza, It’s extremely expensive. Each personal pizza costs $25 plus so if you go with four people you’re paying $100 for pizza.

I love the dough they use for the pizza and the fried pizzas are delicious. They're light on cheese which is ok with me but maybe not for everyone.

Very disappointing; especially considering recent write ups in the press. The pizzas were fine but nothing spectacular. But everything else just wasn't right. Service was slow, the chairs were harder and more uncomfortable than benches on old subway trains, the restaurant does not have grated cheese and oregano for anyone who wants to add those to a pizza (no kidding) and if you ask for water it comes warm and you have to beg for ice.

Dieses Restaurant ist definitiv ein Besuch wert. Der Laden bietet ein schönes Ambiente, mit etwas Glück bekommt man einen Tisch in einer der Nischen, sodass man das Gefühl hat fast alleine zu sein. Allerdings erinnert der zum Teil recht hohe Geräuschpegel dann doch an die anderen Gäste.
Das Essen selbst ist hervorragend. Alle bestellten Pizzen sahen nicht nur perfekt aus, sondern sie schmeckten auch so. Zudem gab es wegen dem „National Pizza Day“ auch noch Rabatt auf alle Pizzen.
Einzig der Service hatte an dem Tag einige Schwierigkeiten; so kam eine Pizza erst gar nicht und dann auch noch die Falsche.
Dennoch gilt: Wer echte neapolitanische Pizza essen möchte ist hier genau richtig.

I didn’t love the pizza as much as I did during previous visits, but I think I made wrong choices. Should’ve stuck to the red sauce pizzas I’ve had before. Also found it bizarre that the hostess made me wait for the rest of my party (one person) to arrive before she could give me a table, because the entire restaurant was completely empty at 6pm, and also didn’t get busy during our meal.

We drive 3 hours to meet family who drive an hour to eat here and enjoy the most amazing gluten free pizza and regular pizza. In fact, our non gf family love the gf. Authentic style and flavors of the Amalfi coast. The truffle pizza and burratta had our table moaning. Only disappointment was that we went on a Sunday this time and were told they do not use their fryer, so we couldn't have the delicious Arancini.

Went in at 10:00 pm on our Christmas visit to New York. Pizza was delicious. Wish we went earlier to see how it was in busy times. Super quiet the time we went. We were looking for a buzzing atmosphere. Not their fault, 10:00 Is pretty late. Great place. Highly recommend

I planned a work lunch for co-workers at Keste last week; it was the last day of one of our favorite people. We sat at a beautiful table by the window that was square and perfect for a group: we were able to have one conversation or separate conversations---comfortably. The pizza was delicious! We shared multiple, but had to reorder more of the fried pizza! So different, and delicious. I loved everything we tried though, particularly a buffalo cheese and truffles pizza. Ahhh it was wonderful. I had been so tired of all of the pizza options downtown, I'm so excited to have Keste in the neighborhood!

We saw Keste on a YouTubers review of NYC pizza. We we're really excited to try it but was extremely disappointed. The service was terrible. We asked the server to explain the different pizzas and they just said "one is fried and one isn't". They won't do any modifications. You can't even add garlic! We had to flag down the server to get more water. The pizza was delicious but I doubt we'll go back. Maybe for takeout.

I figured for these prices I would get good pizza. I was wrong. Crust was like chewing cardboard and had a weird flavor. The tomatoes on it were flavorful though. I still had a heaviness in my stomach hours later.

Great spot for a group or business lunch, so long as everyone's on board with pizza (not sure how many options there are if someone's gluten-free). Quiet, good service, and we were able to get a table easily for our group. Much more pleasant than getting packed into a place on Stone Street, which is what we usually do for team lunches.

The only reason we went there is Because my girlfriend needed a gluten free option. This place allows zero sustitutions and you can't add toppings to a pie. Also can't get a side of sauce and there was no Parmesan for the table nor did they have any to bring. Place is very difficult and far too many rules for a resatarunt that just is for pizza. Many many other pizza establishments that the food is far better and the service is much friendlier that allows you to eat what you want.
