Delicious coal fired pizza. We ate the Margherita pizza to get a true sense of the original NYC pizza slice.loved the flavor and the crust too. Don't miss this culinary stop on your NYC pizza quest.

We were served on paper plates and plastic cups. Very limited menu. Pizza was tasty enough but not any better than any others I ate during my stay. We came here because it was 'on our list' but I wouldn't be running back.

As regular patrons of Lombardi's (most recently about once per year), I have seen the gradual changes with this unique and special place. Geared exclusively toward tourists who want to go to the first pizza place, the old world charm and grit are gone, replaced by a more sterile approach and with paper plates. Seriously? Paper plates and plastic cups? If you're visiting NYC, your best bet is to go where a local would go.

Look, they still make a good pie. However, there are many other places to go in NY that are more authentic and make pizza just as well.

My daughter wanted to come here as she thought this was THE place to come to eat pizza!!! Especially on Halloween night in New York!!
We were taken through the restaurant- through the kitchen area- up stairs to the back space. The air ducts above our heads, the jail like railings which over looked a dirty roof space, and an old peeling mural on one wall.
We were given plastic cups & paper plates to drink & eat from-REALLY!!
The pizza's we ordered- one with half pepperoni on, the other half cheese. One with meatballs, onions & peppers on.
The pepperoni half had tiny pieces of pepperoni and not a lot of it either.
The rest was ok.
Maybe because they put us here, with this service we wouldn't get charged as much? Nope- got charged a full amount!!
When we went back through the restaurant to leave, nobody else had paper plates or plastic cups!!!
Sorry, I can't recommend this place.

I don't know they manage to make so tasty and good looking pizza with the simplicity of the ingredients that a margherita pizza should have. (the perfect mix of tomatoes sauce, mozzarella cheese) . Lombardi is one of the must-to-go places if you like pizza in NCY (also try the ricotta one)
