I read some reviews saying that this place was terrible. I couldn't disagree more. The place was small and had shorter opening hours than most of the restaurants in NYC. The food was delicious. I had the seafood pizza and it was divine. It wasn't...More

We get takeout from here often and enjoy all of the pizza. Dining in is a great option for families and off the beaten track of Times Square so it's quiet and a great option

Little Italian restaurant with delicious, thin base square (not round) pizza. What is also really nice is you can order half-half pizza. Attentive staff, clean bathroom, cozy and not over priced. I will recommend them.

We luckily found lazzara's again this trip. It is great food, an oasis in the fashion district, old school atmosphere, and very good prices. Busy and energetic at lunch, but dinner is much less on crowds, but still perfect before a show!

Lazzara's bills itself as NY's best thin crust pizza. If you're looking for a pizza pie or pizza by the slice, you won't find it here I didn't realize this when I came to Lazzara's and when my half pizza arrived, I was frankly shocked,...More

Visited here twice on our 6 day break. It was an accidental find but was a brilliant one. Don't be put off by the outside appearance - once you get inside the food is amazing, the staff are really friendly and accommodating and do whatever...More

It is our last night in NYC and we were looking for somewhere close to our hotel. This restaurant came up on several reviews and uses Trip Advisor and Open Table so we thought we'd give it a shot. It is located in an old...More
