Food was delicious- I especially loved the Misticanza salad. The lasagna and the pasta we had was great as well. The young woman who served us was especially gracious and attentive. Great dining experience although my companion was surprised that bread was not served before the meal. But he loved his meal!

Our Friday night out at Pizza Secret was magnificent! Service was quick and efficient. Food was amazing. Drinks were incredible! (I HIGHLY recommend the Baileys espresso martini) just an overall amazing experience. Will be returning to this cute little spot. :)

I’ve been to Rosario’s pizza place several times and it’s always a delight! The place is wonderful and Rosario and his team put their heart and soul into preparing the food. Which is absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is great: the subtle background music makes you feel like you’re in Naples... one of Brooklyn’s best kept secret! 😃

Wow - best pizza that I've ever eaten! The dough is simply out of this world. The tomato sauce and veggies were also fantastic. I started with a wonderful kale and pear salad. I finished with the fried dough covered with nutella. Great service and great prices. Also very close the subway. I can't wait to go back!

Eat pizza at Rosario’s restaurant is like going back in the days, eating Sunday evening pizza in Italy with my family or friends. If you are looking for the real Traditional Italian pizza, this is the place. There are many Italian pizzerias in NYC, but no one gave me back the exclusive Italian taste at every bite like Secret Pizza.

The food was cold, restaurant was obnoxiously loud and the prices were high. Better Italian and pizza joints all over Brooklyn as both quality and value. Yelp rating is very misleading

Excellent Food. We came here before a concert at Barclays. It was freezing that day so I think they were a bit overwhelmed with all the people rushing in to get out of the cold. We had a reservation and were seated on time. The pizza came out before our appetizers which I thought was odd but was told by the server "it's always this way". All the food was very good. We had to continue to flag down a server when we needed things but it was never hard to find him. It was an OK experience. I would maybe go back if I'm craving pizza before another Barclays show.

Absolutely mobbed inside. 4 different groups had reservations at the same time waiting at the door. Waiters did everything they could, however could of used more help for the amount of people they were serving. Seated basically at the door where 10-12 people hovering over waiting to be seated. Couldn’t take coats off because it was too cold from door opening. Never got water. The real issue was watching the owners provide absolutely zero help to the staff. They just simply watched the chaos ensue and didn’t provide assistance.

Shoutout to the one waiter/hostess/bartender for running the show. The owners need to lend a hand instead of just smile and watch.

I have been before and loved the food, so I made a 6:45 reservation for 3 people on a Saturday with a note that we had an 8:00 show at Barclays. By 6:12 I knew we were running a bit late so I modified it to 7pm. No one was at the host stand, the place was packed, and I was standing nearly outside. No one came to check until 7:01, and by then there were people behind me waiting for their 7pm reservation as well, a table of 6. I wasn’t asked my name, and the owner just said, “People are finishing up.” By 7:17 all of the people outside and myself still hadn’t been seated. A family of 4 without a reservation was told, “5-10 minutes” before I got there, but eventually gave up. I did as well, as I knew I wouldn’t make my show in time with such slow service. When small places are busy, you should decline walk-ins or say, “We need the table back by 6:50.” I’m glad business is booming, but they need to figure out the reservation system.

Extremely uninspiring food and less-than-ideal service marked the experience at Pizza Secret.

Everything about the restaurant exuded an “amateur hour” feel. The restaurant was not particularly full but yet receiving menus and food items took a very long time. Two members of our party got their pasta dishes long before the salad appetizer arrived. The kale salad was supposed to have cranberries in it but did not come with any (the waiter only offered that they ran out of the cranberries when asked directly). It also did not have any dressing and was extremely dry, only with barely perceptible lemon juice. The salad was painful.

Two pizzas were in our order: a Bufala and a Margherita, each with toppings. Both arrived with extremely thin middle sections that were completely soggy and limp. Mozzarella cheese and other toppings easily rolled right off the pies, and it made the most sense to eat the pizza with a knife and fork.

The best part of the meal for me was getting the check so we could leave. I live in the neighborhood and had never heard of Pizza Secret before. This was our first and only visit, and I wish it had remained a secret.

I really stand behind my 5-stars for here. The pizza is beyond excellent and the staff are always accommodating and professional. Large tables are great for groups, they are incredibly family friendly yet have great wines and drinks. What’s not to like? Outside the name... really needs a better name.

Pizza Secret could be one of the best restaurants in the 5 boroughs. First of all, the pizza is exceptional. If you’re a fan of authentic, brick oven Neapolitan pizza, this is the place for you. The ingredients are fresh. The pizza is made promptly. The taste is outstanding. The quality of service at Pizza Secret only enhances the dining experience. I’ve dined on multiple occasions and have been impressed with the kindness and thoroughness of the waitstaff. I always feel like I’m visiting an old friend. And Rosario, the owner, is one of the most genuine people I’ve met in my life. He is a good person who takes pride in creating a high quality environment for his patrons. If you haven’t been already, please visit Pizza Secret. It’s well worth the trip.

It was probably not a fair day to judge Pizza Secret, huge concert at Barclays - the place had a hard time handling it.
That said, the pizza was delicious (though it came cold)
The dough was excellent, and the sauce was perfect.
They are 3 blocks from Barclays and will definitely give them another try.

Unfortunately, it was a disappointing dining experience. My expectations were high for a chef from Naples and sadly he missed the mark. Even the pizza was underwhelming. In addition, the staff were not prepared for service. I'm not sure when the restaurant opened, but it felt like day 1.

I think the best pizza in NYC ... I'm Italian and I live in NYC for three years ... not much to say ... here you eat the same pizza you make in Naples ... the wood oven from a flavor and a particular scent reminiscent of the Neapolitan pizzerias ... the owner is young and full of dreams ... he deserves every good from this country and from all of us ... three appetizers, a pizza, two glasses of wine, a bottle of sparkling water: 80 dollars ... Italian prices, Italian passion and above all a real NAPOLETANA pizza
