Terrible service - waited about 20 mins for a drink menu then another 10 for the order to actually be taken.

I like pizza, but I rarely go to a restaurant to eat it. I went to Luzzo’s because it’s in the neighborhood and I didn’t want to go too far from home in the cold. I researched, liked the sound of the meat ball appetiser and the arancini, and decided that was going to be my dinner. Spontaneously, I decided to try the pizza too, because my friend is a big pizza fan. Great move! Luzzo’s is one of the best pizza’s I’ve ever eaten!
Everything about Luzzo’s was great. Wonderful friendly, helpful staff. Great ambience. The interior is kind of rustic and homey. It’s very cosy. It just feels real and authentic.
I’ll be back for sure!

We love this place! The staff and the owner are always so welcoming and the vibe there is happy and celebratory without it being overbearing. Oh did I mention that the pizza is so good it’ll make you wanna smack your nonna? The choices are creative without being silly and the dough tastes like it’s straight from Naples. Yeah, it’s that delicioso.

This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant, fresh delicious Italian fare in a laid back setting. We were here for a family birthday and the staff were totally accommodating (let us bring a few balloons). Sometimes the service is a little inconsistent but we never care. When you are at Luzzo’s, you feel like a member of the family, invited to enjoy a family meal.

Waaaaaaay too noisy. Extremely difficult to have a conversation. Pizza, wine and good conversation is what we were after! The pizza was just mediocre; yes, the wine was fine; but the conversation was impossible. Not a good place to catch up with friends.

One other complaint: I convinced a friend, who has a gluten sensitivity to join us, as I saw they had many gluten-free pasta options on the menu. He was excited to join us. Sadly, although the pasta is technically gluten-free, it is cooked in the same pot of hot water as the regular pasta. A NO-GO, even for someone who is only mildly sensitive. He was not as disappointed as I was, as from experience, he says this is often the case at many restaurants, even though they’re charging extra for the GF pasta.

Vibe is great. Service was spectacular. Food and pizza were DELICIOUS. My only “bad” thing to say is that sitting outside you feel totally disconnected from the great feel on the actual restaurant. Sit indoors.

The food and service was great, but the space itself was very tight. Our group of 7 was seated for dinner at a bar- height table with stools and with very little passing room between tables for guests and the servers.

We come here several times a month and the food is always excellent. The only thing that marred our most recent visit was our waiter's apparent eagerness to get us to leave so he could use the table again. We were there for a little under an hour and a half, not an inordinate amount of time to spend at dinner, so having the waiter repeatedly see if we were ready to pay the check and then to mutter under his breath that he needs the table was truly annoying. I had never seen this waiter before so perhaps he was new.

Io e mio marito abbiamo sempre voluto venire qui a Luzzo's BK. Finalmente abbiamo avuto la possibilità e non ci ha deluso. Il cibo che avevamo era così buono dall'antipasto al caffè e dolce. Vogliamo dire un grande grazie a Gennaro che è stato davvero eccezionale e ci ha fatto sentire a casa. Sicuramente torneremo.

Been here twice now, and both the pizza and pasta dishes are fantastic. The service is also very friendly and knowledgeable, and it's never too crowded or loud! I've lived in the neighborhood for a few months now and this is the first restaurant where I could see myself becoming a regular.

Restaurant said they had no record of my reservation (even though I clearly showed them an active open table reservation/confirmation). So, we waited for for about 20 minutes for a table, were seated in the aisle table that everyone needs to walk next to to get back to the 2nd half of the place (not a huge deal but not ideal). When we were finally seated, we were informed that they were waiting on menus to provide to us, fast forward another 10 minutes and we finally got a menu. Pizzas took about an hour to come out, but we’re very good. Pretty loud, as to be expected for a Friday evening.

Real pizza by real Italians. The way pizza should be done with respect by way of excellent ingredients. The dough-the foundation of the pizza-is superb, and it just gets better from that point.

Great pizza, subpar service. It was apparently an unexpectedly busy night, but we had to wait too long at every stage of the process, from water to ordering, aps to mains, and even the check. It wasn’t terrible, but it was consistent.
That said, the pizza was incredible. One bite, and all the issues melted away.

This is one of our go-to places in the neighborhood. Management is very friendly and offers great recommendations for wine. They were very busy tonight and it took a bit longer than normal for our entrees to come out, but it was worth the wait!

Came here for the first time during the weekend with a friend. I love cozy places with good comfort food and a casual atmosphere, and this was exactly that. We got wine, salads, and a pizza and all of it was delicious. Service was attentive without being overbearing. I live nearby and will definitely come back as a regular!
