About

Kesté, meaning “this is it” in the dialect of Naples, is an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria. At Kesté, pizza fans can indulge in an expansive assortment of 50 traditional and creative wood-fired Neapolitan style pies, crafted from the finest ingredients, including homemade mozzarella. In addition to several red, white and specialty pizzas, the menu also showcases an assortment of gluten free pizzas as well as several vegetarian and vegan options.

Terrific pizza and salads. Appreciated the great service and kind conversation of our server, Ana. Also thank Chef Roberto for sending us a couple slices of his special cheese-in-crust pizzita, delicious!

This was the first time we tried this place. We initially heard about it on TV, Food Channel I think. It was well worth the trip downtown. The piazza and the focaccia were amazing. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. The owner came over and chatted with us he was very personable. We will definitely come back and we will also try his place in mid-town. The wine was great, Aglianico from Naples.

We had a ball this evening celebrating a childs 6th birthday. The pizzas were outstanding & the servers were fun too. The crust made with truffle oil was heavenly. Prices are fair. Great place to gather.

My pizza was absolutely fantastic. I have celiac and I chose the GF pizza, which is cooked in a separate oven, in a separate room: it was by far the best GF pizza I've ever had in the US or Italy. All of my friends ordered regular pizzas and they all confirmed it was great. Limited but very sophisticated selection of Italian beers. Also, the ambience is really authentic (I'm from Italy). I was already familiar with Kestè on Bleecker Street, I found this location much nicer. The location is very central but the ambience is very cozy. I would definitely go back and bring friends.

I needed to find a restaurant that could accommodate a large group for a Saturday lunch and Keste was one of the few restaurants in the FiDi area that could accommodate us. My group and I couldn't have been happier with the choice. Our waitress was super friendly, we barely had to wait for our food to come out and the pizzas were fantastic! I'll definitely come back soon!

My wife and I go here regularly. The pizza crust is excellent. This is wood fired Neapolitan style pizza so not your typical slice shop pizza. I highly recommend Keste for a great pie and a glass (or 2) of wine. The prices are what you'd expect for a high end pizza in NYC. The environment is very casual. The benches are not super comfortable and the waitstaff is very low-touch which can get frustrating if they are busy. But don't let my small complaints get in the way of great pies.

I saw Kestè on a show about pizza. They talked about their fried pizza and I had to try it. It was awesome! They have a strawberry purée and Prosecco drink that was an amazing start to the meal. My party had the signature fried pizza and the prosciutto and arugula pizza. Both were amazing! Will definitely be visiting again.

Kestè takes something simple and by using such quality ingredients, makes it outstanding. Their food is delicious. Not the kind of pizza that you want to scarf down. Each bite is delicious. Enjoy!

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.

$24 for a “specialty pizza” and $10 for a beer is a bit pricey but the food was good. Just beyond overpriced.
