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
Some of the best pizza you'll ever have. Also, the calzone is amazing. Get there when it open or a little earlier.
World famous pizza! Make sure to get there early since the lines start before opening.
Specialty pizza. Not cheap but the best in all of New York City. Must arrive early around 5 pm or 6 pm to even get a reservation and reservations are taken only at the door. A pain I know but so worth it.
A thin-crust legend, Jay-Z and Beyonce once skipped the Grammy's to grab a bite here. The pizzeria also offers hearty calzones. Be warned that the waitresses are often sarcastic and the wait can be long, but NYC pizza connoisseurs agree that the food is worth the trouble.
One of the best pizza spots in NYC - they don't accept reservations so expect long lines!
