The pizza was decent, not outstanding. I like Keste better. On top of that, we were told they take walk-ins but after waiting for an hour we did not see one walk in seated. In fact, we had a 2 1/2 hour wait before we...More

This was recommended by a friend so upon visiting NYC we had to visit. Having walked through Chinatown and most of Little Italy on a freezing cold Sun afternoon, it was a welcome sight. The restaurant was packed! We hadn't booked but were so lucky...More

Rubirosa was recommended to me by one of my friends and it did not disappoint. I made a reservation per her recommendation and I'm glad I did because the place was packed shortly after we were seated.

We dined here without a reservation around brunch time on a Sunday. It was busy, but they were able to seat us right away. We ordered the pepperoni pizza. It was fantastic! The mimosa wasn’t bad either.

Best gluten free pizza in NY if not the whole Western Hemisphere and a whole other trove of gluten free delights. The food on their regular non gluten free menu is also amazing.

The Italian food is delicious but the very thin crust pizza is to die for. Not sure if they take reservations and there’s often a wait. But it’s worth it!!

Ate here on a Tuesday evening at 6:30pm and the place was *PACKED* -- we ended up waiting almost 90 minutes. It was worth it (although 90 minutes is a long time, just saying). Typical NY thin crust pizza, very well done, all the ingredients...More

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
