You know why Italy doesn't have pizza this good? Because the master chef is here. I have never, ever had pizza this good, with a mind-numbing array of choices. Wow! Don't bother with anywhere else. (It blows Lombardi's away.)

We were on a pizza quest in NY, and made an effort to hit as many pizza restaurants as possible. This was our favorite sit down full pizza. The pepper infused oil was the bomb!!!! I highly recommend.

Went there for the first time with my girlfriend after a friend recommended. You can't make a reservation so we left our name with the manager and waited 20min. It was worth it ! We had a great salad to start and split a pizza. It was really good. Place was crowded and the tables are tight but it did... More

Keste in West Village is the perfect pizza place. I really want to trash it so others won't go there and keep my wait times down, but they deserve the kudos. First the reality. This is a very small restaurant and the tables are close together. Not a lot of room to maneuver, so for gawd sakes please don't bring... More

For me, this is the best pizzeria in all of New York City, that is if you want REAL PIZZA, LA VERA PIZZA NAPOLETANA. If you're into "NY style pizza", then this place might not be for you (but that's actually impossibile). I definitely recommend ordering la margherita with a side of Birra Menabrea. The service is also very friendly... More

Keste is a offers a good selection of pizzas. The Neapolitan pizza restaurant uses quality ingredients in their pies, with some concoctions tasting better than others. I wasn't a fan of the special that came strongly recommended to us by our waiter, but the other pizzas from the menu were decent. The salads and antipasti made a better impression than... More

The title says everything. You have to wait because they do not take reservations (O guess only in the week-end) but it is 100% worth the wait. Pizza is simply delicious, very autenthic Neapolitan style, crispy well presented on the plate. Sounds like being back home in Italy !

We have been here a few times and it never disappoints! It's a small, cozy restaurant and waits can get long, so be there early! It doesn't take long to get your food because it is Neapolitan, they only cook it for about 90 seconds. We have loved everything we have had at Keste!

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.
