Pie with garlic, basil & mushroom- A disappointing score considering I held this pizza to high expectation. First, the service was subpar; the server was paying no attention to our pie, which had been sitting for a considerable amount of time prior to being handed over to us. Needless to say, the pie was not piping hot. Secondly, while the crust and mozzarella were phenomenal, the sauce, while homemade, was too sweet for my personal appeal. Finally, Lucali sprinkles grated parmesan all over the pie which takes a sting out of the flavor of the mozzarella. It additionally tells me that they lack having adequate confidence in their ingredients. It’s a major disappointment, especially when taking into account that this is a full point below Portnoy’s review, and based on the naked eye, this is becoming more of a commercialized pizzeria, as they are significantly lacking appropriate customer service.

Rough crowd at the spot. Like the wild Wild West. I was scared. My review reflects that.

This pizza lived up to all the hype! The crust was light and airy, the sauce was perfect and great ratio of cheese. The plain was great and the pepperoni gave it that nice kick! The staff was nice and even got to talk to Mark as he was running out who was gracious to say hello while he was answering a cal. You have to go and support this business!! Oh yea we ate it on the trunk of my car cause of the pandemic, Classic!

WOW. I’m from California and good pizza over there is pretty rare but this pizza is miles ahead of just about any I’ve ever had. One thing I rarely hear people say is how good the crust is. The way the bread compliments the rest of the pizza is divine. Lucali just gained another fan

Definitely some top notch pizza, but it didn’t quite live up to the hype for me. May not be as good as usual because it was takeout during the pandemic, will be back when indoor dining is open again!

I am super full but this is still such phenomenal pizza. Di Fara is the last one of the trip.

This pizza was delicious! It had more flop and less crunch then I expected. However, the taste and flavor were amazing. We will definitely go there again.

Takeout but still amazing. 10 minute wait right now is amazing

Ordered 1 pep and 1 plain for takeout. Fortunately there’s a nice shaded park with tables 2 blocks away since there’s no dine in. Pizza was as expected. Plain was light and crispy and delicious and Pepperoni always kicks it up a notch. Reheated slices the next day was just as good. Great night!

Super thin and crispy crust. Sauce is not overly acidic or sweet and the cheese has a nice elasticity and a mild flavor. Bonus points on the fresh basil. Now, is this worth a 2+ hour wait? No. You know what might be though? Their calzones. They’re easily a 10+, they are that good.

Solid slice but not as good as Di Fara’s or even Sorrento’s. Ive been to all of Prez’s 9 scorers. This wasnt the best of em, lets just put it that way.

It was good... but cheese slip and slide on the soft side. Sauce was super flavorful.

I did the new haven pizza tour 2 weeks ago. Nothing compares to this.

It was good pizza but nothing crazy. Sauce taste good but nothing really that special when I bit in. Started to taste better on my third slice. This like a 2030 type trendy pizza - and I see what people like it. Doesn’t have the old school kick. But again a very solid pie. Better places around
