Best pizza in NYC?

post #1 of 139
Thread Starter 
I've heard that the pizza in NYC is first rate, but the last couple of times I visited I didn't find anything good. I'm going to be in NYC this weekend, so I'd love to hear some suggestions. Something easily accessible would be ideal, ie something near a major shopping center.

I like Lombardi's. Not too far from the major SoHo shopping areas and the B, F, D, V, N, R, 6 trains all have stops in that general vicinity.

I second the Lombardi recommendation. http://www.totonnos.com/ is also good. If you are willling to travel to brooklyn there are excellent places there

There are the Big Three - Lombardi's, John's and Grimaldi's (in Brooklyn). Totonno's is fantastic, but it's a hike to Coney Island. Likewise, the original Patsy's in East Harlem, but you might not want to make the trip.

John's was my favorite when I lived there.

I can't belive Joe's hasn't been mentioned yet. It's a standing room only, slice pizza place. It's on Bleeker and 6th, right on the west corner. Go to Lombardi's.

I know you guys will hate me, but I figured it's worth a shot. Is there any deep dish (ala Chicago) places in NYC?

Holy Dino thread! I'll be in NYC in a week, down near Radio City Music Hall. Where should I go to try NYC pizza? Preferably something nearby.

Grimaldi's

John's in the Village. Other locations are okay, but not as good.

Damn, someone has yet to give you the correct answer: Una Pizza Napoletana.

That's the answer. Don't expect anything more than a great pizza though (e.g. good service, nice attitude or a variety of drinks)

Other great pizzas in the same Italian pizza category (as opposed to NY pie style):
- No.28 on Carmine Street in the Village
- Waldy's in Chelsea/garment district

The only pizza i've had was lombardi's which was really great and Ben's which was a hole in the wall by the slice place by NYU which was very good for cheap pizza. It was reccomended to me by my NYU friend.

Count: Grimaldi's under the east tower of the Brooklyn Bridge is, IMO, the best in the city. I also love Lombardi's, which I think is the best in Manhattan.

Good pizza in midtown is sadly hard to find. There is a John's location in Times Square, not far from where you will be. It's good, but -- as another poster noted -- not nearly as good as the original in the Village.

Patsy's is a chain (Manhattan only, so not an Olive Garden-type chain) that people love to hate. The original in the old Italian section of East Harlem is the best, but the others are not bad, IMO.

This site can be fun, if hard to navigate:
