Had hoped for a more authentic Italian pizza (once tasted you would not want anything else). Very noisy restaurant, far larger inside than you would expect. Had great service from a lovely guy so no complaints there but I won't be rushing back.

We ate here twice during a trip to NYC. The pizza is amazing! Portions are very large, so most items can be shared. Be prepared to wait, but they have a bar at the very front to grab a drink until your table is ready. Loved the atmosphere as well!

the pizza was good and service quick for the size of the restaurant. We were looking for New York pizza, not sure we found it, but it was good. It's loud, but what big place is not. We went after a show right down the street and got seated right away. I'd go again.

If you are not up to spend a lot or forgot to make reservations for a fancy restaurant and do not want to sleep with an empty stomach go for a pizza there.

The pizza was exactly what we were looking for on our trip. Great atmosphere, not far from Times Square and our hotel

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
