We had the homemade mozzarella ball with creamy interior, served with prosciutto di parma for entrée. OMG, it was the best mozzarella ball ever! If we ever come back to New York, we are definitely going back to Keste.

Been looking long and hard across the country for pizza to match what I've found in Naples, and of course NY, NY has it at Keste. Wish I traveled there more often!

GREAT NYC PIZZA. There is a reason they won the "Clean your plate award" No matter how full you are - you can't stop eating it!

We researched pizza before going to New York and found this gem. I can't emphasise enough how completely amazing this place is. Pizza that I would happily name as my last meal on earth. The owner greeted us and made sure we were happy. Very friendly. Wish I lived upstairs!

We first went to Keste as they offered gluten-free pizza. My brother-in-law has Celiac and we're always on the lookout to find a place where he can get a good pie. He loves the pizza there. My sister and I noticed a write-up in the menu proclaiming an award for Best Pizza from (I think) the New Yorker. So when... More

So to be fair, I'm from the Chicago area, and I very much prefer Chicago-style, deep dish pizza to any kind of New York thin crust. But this pizza was different, more like Italian style pizza. It was delicious! It's about one pizza per person for a good serving size. I got the Noci e Porcini, which was a creamy... More

There is no shortage of places claiming "The best pizza in New York", but this one truly deserves it! Really authentic, tasty pizza as good as you can have in Naples. The place is tiny, be prepared to wait - but well worth it. Off-peak times (e.g. early dinner at 5) give you a better chance to get in. The... More

I'm italian, for this reason i think that i can be a good judge about the pizza. At Keste you can eat a good pizza in a friendly atmosphere ( was only strange that the italian staff spoke with us in english!).Not cheap but is New York!

The title of my review is actually a direct quote from the guy sitting next to us, just before he ordered a second margarita! Absolutely perfect pizza, I had the Regina Margarita, hubby had the delicious #1 best seller (with prosciutto and arugula). Fabulous!

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
