Best pizza we ever had. We visit NYC several times a year and we always have dinner at Lazzaras when in town. In my opinion the best Pizza ever. Definitely worth the trip!!!!

Super popular restaurant for good reason. Great food, generous servings. Pizzas obviously but also pasta, salads, and 3v desserts.

Underwhelming - staff weren’t particularly friendly, and the pizza was average at best, only slightly better than an oven pizza at home

FORGET THIS PLACE! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! We were referred here by a friend who raved about the food. We showed up and sat down in an empty dining room on a Tuesday evening only to be told we had to order TWO pizzas for 4...people….WTH? We wanted One pizza and I wanted to order a salad. Needless to say we got up and left.More

Hello , I don’t always respond to my not so nice reviews, but since you think it’s ok to bash my restaurant and tell people to “forget this place go somewhere else ! “ Just because you didn’t care to respect our policy ? Now...More

What a find this place was. We visited with a friend after our wedding in NYC. The food, ambiance and staff were superb. The freshest nicest pizza I've eaten and the drinks were really cold, a godsend on a hot day. The whole place looked...great, I wonder if the walls could talk what stories they'd tell. If you're near Penn Station try this place out, you won't be disappointedMore

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

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
