I have had this pizza so many times and I never get tired from it. Everyone I brought here also see it as the best pizza in the city. Sometimes they even have food truck pop-up appearances around manhattan as part of "Broadway Bites".

The crust here is so light and crisp that you can easily order a pizza per person - which is great because then you don't have to make the tough choice between the perennial favorites (the funghi! the amartriciana!) and any seasonal specials (the lamb and the tripe specials have been truly special). Don't skip the main courses either - the wood-burning oven makes for outstanding lamb and pork as well. There is a varied & well-priced wine list to accompany the consistently delicious food.

Interesting! I of course went for the pizza but hadn't heard the lamb or pork recommended. Sounds like it might be worth a trip back there to try them out!

Marta is one of the best restaurants I've tried in the last year. The dining space is beautiful, a small feat consider that it's located on the side of a hotel lobby (a bit unusual). The food is really what makes Marta stand out though, and the pizzas, lamb and rabbit meatball appetizer are all great choices.

This is as authentic as you get for New York-style pizza. Paulie Gee's certainly ranks among the most renowned of the great Brooklyn pizzerias, and you'll often have to wait an hour or more to get seated. It's a very cool experience though, and a good place to go whether you are a local or want to treat friends from out of town who want to experience some of NY's best pizza. I'd recommend the white pie, something that they are really well known for.

One of the most underrated pizza places in the city and just opened up in the past year. The owner, Jason Brunetti, is a really friendly dude who is happy to give you recommendations to fit your palate. My personal favorite is the meatball, but the Margherita and meat-lover pies are also really popular.

Dope as hell, super Italian, modern and better than Grimaldi's, Lombardi's, etc.

I'll mention Barboncino because it was started by two guys who worked at Paulie Gee's and their pizzas are definitely on par with Paulie's. That is to say that they're really, really good. It's rather small and cozy, and perfect for a laid-back dinner date. I would recommend this to anyone who wants great Brooklyn-style pizza without the 1-2 hour wait you find at the more well-known pizzerias.

One of the best pizza places in upper Manhattan and one of the few that can rival the great pizza joints out in Brooklyn. These guys know how to do a Neapolitan pizza. The mozzarella is fantastic and the crust is thin, crispy and crunchy. Stop by here if you are in the Hell's Kitchen area and try the Margherita or sausage pie.

A bit of a tourist attraction nowadays, Grimaldi's still stands as one of my favorite brick-oven pizza spots in the city. Avoid the Brooklyn location at all costs and just head straight to Avenue of the Americas. Not only will you avoid seriously long lines, but you're almost guaranteed to get your food in under an hour. The friendly staff and fresh ingredients are what keep Grimaldi's on the map. It's hard to find a pizza that beats it.
