About this place
When the history of pizza is written, there's a real chance that Lucali comes to be known as the best pizzeria ever in New York City. There are other heavies, of course, and let's not too-hastily push them to the side. But it may turn out that never before or never since did all of the elements of greatness — setting, dough, ovens, sauce recipe, pizzaiolo — come together quite as succinctly as they do here.

Specialty pizza. Not cheap but the best in all of New York City. Must arrive early around 5 pm or 6 pm to even get a reservation and reservations are taken only at the door. A pain I know but so worth it.

A thin-crust legend, Jay-Z and Beyonce once skipped the Grammy's to grab a bite here. The pizzeria also offers hearty calzones. Be warned that the waitresses are often sarcastic and the wait can be long, but NYC pizza connoisseurs agree that the food is worth the trouble.

One of the best pizza spots in NYC - they don't accept reservations so expect long lines!

The famous restaurant as seen on Netflix's Ugly Delicious. The line gets very long to dine inside, so if you are set on trying this pizza prepare to show up a few hours early.

No reservations, but it's to-die-for. Many (including me) agree that it's the best pizza in New York City. Get there at least an hour before they open because they don't take reservations and the line for table gets very long and stretches around the block daily.
