Not often that pizza touches the 9’s for me but Lucali is no joke. Really frustrating experience to get a reservation (I tried and failed three times before I finally made it happen), but so so worth it. Quality of pizza at Lucali is second to none. The fluff / crunch balance is done to a tee, and the basil on top is the perfect touch. Don’t discount the amazing interior of the restaurant, either. Overall, the best slice I’ve ever had in my life, and it’s not very close.

Lucali is wonderful. Literally the only pizza I can eat where the cheese is the star. Mark uses a combo of 3 cheeses which provide sweetness, nuttiness, and saltiness. Perfect proportion. The final product is truly worthy of the hype. I hate the “scene” there and will probably never stand in line for a table. Hostess is a freakin joke of a snob. Not cool. The pie, out of this world.

Super fluffy but also incredibly crunchy. Pizza was awesome, but the CALZONE was the best thing I’ve ever eaten. 10/10. Order the calzone.

Lives up too all the hype, this is the holy grail of pizza!! It’s a bucket list must do!!

The regular pie was great but not the best. I HIGHLY recommend adding Garlic, Pep and Mushrooms. Also, ask for a dish if the sauce on the side, which comes with shredded parm and garlic. This pie blew my socks off and warrants the haste of showing up well before they open to get in line. Waitress Jackie has been there since the beginning and will always steer your right with her recommendations.

Best pizza I’ve ever had in North America. Great crunch. Great sauce. Great cheese. Great basil. A work of art

Good pizza but not great though. This is one of those places that unfortunately is overhyped.

It doesn’t get much better than this. The thin crust is one-of-a-kind. Only other place that comes close on the crust is Giuseppina’s.

Fresh as hell, delicious more of coal fired fan myself but the care the pizza gets in that kitchen is insane, NOT a rookie score, had to be a nine but 9.1 felt a smidge high considering thats the highest i have given

Excellent slice. Terrific flavor. Fresh everything. Sauce is perfectly sweet and has some tang and balances well with the cheese. Excellent char. For sure try this place if you can. 8.9 from me for sure!

A little bit overhyped but still very good. They offer a military discount, which is really cool. The pizza extremely well prepared and cooked, definitely one of the best in NY.

What an amazing experience waiting in line just to get a seating time and waiting around dying to try the pizza. Well it lived up to the hype. Very thin, crispy, airy, and everything is amazingly fresh.
