About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Voted "Best Pizza" by Daily News readers. Pizza is taken seriously at this Lower East Side pizza restaurant. Chef/Owner Gigio Palazzo creates oblong Roman pies made with your choice of an ORGANIC MULTIGRAIN Crust or GLUTEN FREE crust. Palá is known for fresh, innovative pies such as "Zucca" pumpkin puree, pancetta and smoked scamorza cheese and "Bufala Cruda" oven melted cherry tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella and whole basil leaves. Pizzas are served on long wooden "Pala's" or pizza peels and are excellent for sharing in groups. In addition to pizzas, Palazzo serves up homemade specialties like "arancini" and "fiori di zucca" not to mention an impressive list of salads, pastas and desserts. GLUTEN FREE and VEGAN menus available. Wine, beer and a full bar top off the experience at Palá.

Great place for family event gathering with a varied menu to please vegan as well as basic Carnivors who love Italian food. Very noisy but also very friendly. Excellent service. Very creative interior and exterior design and seating.

It was a little cold. The food was great. Pizza both gluten free and wheat was perfect. They don't modify the menu items which I get but is a little rude.

My go-to restaurant for gluten-free pizza. Great drinks, appetizers and salads as well. Conveniently located across Houston from F 2nd Ave stop.
