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.
Tips from locals

“Two words: Breakfast. Sandwiches. A bacon-egg-and-cheese on a roll is a Saturday late-morning standby, but the righteous brunchtime subs at this beloved Carroll Gardens market-café are a welcome upgrade from that bodega classic. We’re talking Balthazar ciabatta loaded with scrambled eggs, salty Cabot cheddar and arugula, or a Taylor pork roll with American cheese on a Martin’s potato bun, delivered straight to the cozy dining room”
