Expert review of Lombardi’s Pizzeria

One of the best pizza pies in the Big Apple.

Ask a New Yorker where the city’s best pizza is and you’re liable to get into a discussion as heated as any religious or political argument. Or as heated as if you are a Yankees or a Mets fan. But for my money the pies at Lombardi’s gracefully straddle the divide between much loved and cheap pizza-by-the-slice places like Joe’s and Famous Ben’s Pizza and more artisinal and experimental choices like Co. and Neapolitan-style Motorino.

Food and drink: 

It’s all about the pizza here which exemplifies the Italian thin-crust style, crisped to perfection by their coal-fired oven. But there’s also a decent wine and beer list.

Ambience: 

Cheerful and bustling, this is a great spot if you have kids in tow or are looking for a good meal that doesn’t break the bank. During the summer months, they open a garden area which is a lovely outdoor space.

Service: 

There is a quick turnover here and the staff reflects the all business attitude of taking your order and getting the food out quickly. Nonetheless servers are perfectly friendly.

Location: 

This Little Italy Institution opened in 1905 and has seen the neighborhood change from an Italian-American center to a gentrified, trendy part of the city.

Price advice: 

Main courses from US$15.50 may not sound cheap but you get enough to almost feed the whole family with one dish!

Tables to book: 

No reservations so expect to wait, especially on the weekends. Also if you aren’t in a rush try to wait for an outdoor spot.
