Wow. Really tasty slice! The sauce was delicious, although it wasn’t as sweet as the traditional New York sauce, it brought something different and special to the table. The cheese was plentiful, but it didn’t feel like too much and to me that’s very surprising. The crust had a little char which is the classic. I’m very picky when it comes to the char amount and this one didn’t disappoint me. There were three things that prevented this slice from making it to a 9. The first is the droop. I’ve cut some slack to a good amount of slices for the droop, but this was too much. The second is the cheese cohesion. As I was taking my slice out of the box, I had some trouble keeping the cheese on the slice. The last was the wait. For a perfect slice from them I would give a 9.3 max which of course isn’t bad, but from time getting there to time eating it was about a 2 hour wait. I would wait that again maybe one or two other times unless the slice was a 9.7 or above. To be fair it did give me time to grab another slice to review and get a chocolate egg-cream. I would get this slice again for sure, but it certainly will not become a regular spot because of the wait.

Review 379. I’m sorry MY experience …I didn’t taste it. Waited 3hrs. Extremely disappointed! My pie was NOT CRISP. Cheese slide right off every slice and again NO CRISP TO ANY SLICE!! I’m Crust was BARELY CRISP. Didn’t taste an extraordinary sauce or cheese. AND FOR $40.00 ARE YOU NUTZ ??? I should have gave that $40.00 to some homeless before paying that for this Pizza. Maybe I caught them on a bad day I don’t know. I’m disappointed scoring this FOR ME. Sorry to the community.

Well, if I'm being honest it was a little disappointing. We waited around 2 hours, which I expected, but it wasn't really worth the wait. The biggest downside to the pizza was the flop, it was real bad and the cheese just slid off. Besides that it was delicious, the crust was crunchy and somewhat flaky and the cheese and sauce were nice. If it could've held itself together, it would've been in the 9s.

Don’t believe the hype!! Very good but not spectacular, not worth waiting 4 hours for pizza

Had the composition of a great traditional slice with delicious sauce and approachable cheese. Not the centerpiece of the pizza like johns of bleeker but tasty and essential. Instinctually, the slice just felt like 8.8

Best pizza I’ve ever had I just wish I got there earlier to get a table so I can dine in! Every one was super cool when I ordered. I did a to go order and it was a 1 hour wait when I came back Lucali himself was there spoke to him before he left ! What’s a cool experience and got to see how the pizza was made !

Vibes were immaculate. Crust was perfect. Light and airy with a great undercarriage. Sauce and cheese were on point. Basil was excellent. The GOAT.

WOW. If you are in the area no question. If you aren’t in the area buy a flight. Sauce was impeccable, crust was impeccable. Enough said. Get this pizza it is great. P.s it lives up to the hype.

Came from Orlando, FL for this pizza. The undercarriage was the highlight of this pizza. Really good cheese and a light sauce. We tried the calzone which was great as well. While the pie was amazing, the service was really bad which ruined the experience for us. With that said, I will not let the service impact the score. 9.1 - solid! Be prepared to wait a few hours.

Easily one of the best pizzas you’ll find anywhere. Dough, sauce, cheeses… everything’s elevated to a higher level. The people there are extremely warm and welcoming also which stands out. Overall phenomenal experience. Thank you Mr. Iacono. Much respect.

There is something magical about this pizza. Not sure you can really do much better than Lucali’s

A lot better than average pizza. I’ve had better, but this one is worth the travel. Still very overrated on this app.

First flavor is the sauce, a thin tangy slightly sweet tomato sauce. Nice saltiness to the cheese. Good undercarriage crisp, the dough has a nice wood brick oven after taste. Would wait 45 min for a reservation again
