Excellent food in a hidden gem with an eclectic ambiance! Very reasonably priced. We had the house salad, arancini balls and the cheese pizza. All were delish.

Stopped in after reading a stellar review from Dave Portnoy ("One Bite" app) and we are glad we did. Quite, hole in the wall atmosphere, with friendly staff and affordable prices. The pizza style looks different than the traditional NY style, but as good as...anything you will find in the city. Thin, squared slices that aren't overly crispy but also doesn't flop when held. The sauce is also top tier. My daughter had the fettuccini alfredo and it was enough that she could not finish it all, but she raved at the quality.More

My daughter and I stopped in 30 minutes before the kitchen closed one night and ordered a salad and pizza. It was delicious! Piping hot and crusty where it should be and melty everywhere else. It’s a quaint dining room located up a narrow flight...of stairs. Will definitely go back!More

Interesting old style walk up townhouse for a pizza place. Interesting pizza style too, similar to Detroit style pizza. Ordered half a lasagna pie and half a Sebastian seafood pie. Ordered a chicken parm hero and shrimp parm on penne. Everything tasted delicious. Only complaint...is that I wish they took off the tails on the shrimp. Small detail but it makes a huge difference to the eating experience.More

We were very hungry after a day of traveling. Walked a long way to get there but the food was the payoff for our work. Very good pizza with a crispy crust.

Not sure how you run out of drinks. The pizza was exceptional. However, soft drinks are served in cans and apparently the day I came, they were out of Coke and Diet Coke. That is usually a back of house issue. Management needs to stay...on top of the ordering/inventory issues. I would return the wait staff was friendly.More

Had a good experience. The wait staff was very attentive and diligent. The atmosphere is very tight, but cozy. You will be sitting back to back and side to side with tables all around, but the atmosphere plays off of it, as it is basically...a very old and historic looking living room that was converted to a pizza Café. Overall, the experience was nice, and it was a welcomed way to get out of the cold and warm our bodies and belies.More

We went to this place because it was so highly rated by Barstool... what I want to know is "Hey Dave Portnoy, How much did this pizza place pay you for that stellar review"?? Let's get to the review: The building: Not for anyone who...is handicapped, has a heart condition, breathing problems, has lower extremity joint issues, or is obese. This place is on like the 3rd floor. If you are looking for it - you might miss it. It looks like an apartment. The pizza: The crust was crispy - and actually a bit hard. If you have soft teeth - don't go here. We ordered half pepperoni and half with spinach (which sounded delish). The sauce was tasteless! Yes folks, you read that to be correct, no taste! It was like tomato sauce spread on a super hard cracker!! The spinach.... I think the picked weeds from out back and drizzled oil on it and threw it on top of the tomato sauce which was on top of the super hard cracker. Dis-GUST-Ting!!!! 🤮 Waitress: Rude and did not want to give us the time of day. Price: Expensive 💸 There was a good old boys club taking place in the kitchen with cigars and booze. Felt very uncomfortable... we were the ONLY people in there!! That should have been my sign to run!! Seriously - go someplace else (anyplace is better than here) which will be cheaper and have more taste!! Barstool, you disappointed this fan!!More

We just had lunch at Lazzara's on the recommendation of Barstool's rating of a 9.3. We love the pizza it was excellent. The crust is perfect and the plain cheese was so good. We also got two of their salads which were fresh and plentiful....I think the price for the pizza is way to high. $25 for six slices of pizza is pretty high in my opinion even for NYC but that being said I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. There were lots of reviews that service wasn't that great but we had no problems at all, our server took great care of us.More

We visited Lazzaro’s on recommendation of a work colleague on night one of our recent trip to New York. So glad we did. This little gem is within walking distance of Times Square, I think just into the garment district area. The street itself is...very non-descript, and there is no way we would have just stumbled upon it, thank goodness for Google Maps! You enter via a steep set of stairs, through a curtain, and you are greeted with a small restaurant packed with atmosphere. Even more so when some locals are in for a big birthday party, taking in up most of the restaurant. We were seated quickly, as fortunately we arrived just as someone left. We had water served to the table, and ordered a bottle of wine. Us three women all ordered a ‘half’ pizza which is as it was described, and exactly half the price of the whole pizza. The pizza is served pre-sliced in a square pan, a very unique shape for classic Italian pizza. The ingredients all tasted fresh; we had the classic margarita, Lazzaro’s special, and ham & pineapple. What set it apart was the fresh and authentic tomato sauce, and they do not go overboard with the cheese. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience, though be aware that this a very small space so it appears that you could be placed just an inch from someone else’s table, they really have to utilise every bit of floor space to get the guests in.More

The restaurant is upstairs from the sidewalk which is a bit different than most restaurants. The dinning room is small and they make sure they have tables everywhere they can I am glad it was not very busy when we went, because we had a...table between us and two other guests so we used it to put our pizza's on. My wife had a clam appitizer and there were a lot of clams, they definately give you your moneys worth. I had the fried ravioli appitizer and it was very good, the ravioli's seemed to be homemade. The pizza is rectangle and very thin crust, but it is not limp. we ordred two half pizzas so we could try different flavors and they were both good. We had margherita and pepperoni, both were very flavorful. If we are in the area we will definately go back.More
