Stuck between an 8.4 and 8.5 here. Either way its amazing “pizza”. This is some real Ginny shit. They make their own mozzarella daily, and its delicious. The also make their own tomato sauce which looks to be kind of like a vodka sauce, kind of heavy on the basil but i like it. The dough is super thin with a good amount of crisp crackle and snap. I think the only thing it needs, is some funky cheese like parm reggiano or some garlic in the sauce, something to give it just a little more punch. It’s not bland, dont get me wrong, it’s fucking awesome and i almost cried, but a little more punch in this pie, and it’s a real high 8 for me. I loved it.

Killer place... the sauce was a bit bland for me but the cheese crust and flop were amazing... we killed the pie almost immediately

Super sharp looking pie. Very crisp crust. Great fresh mozzarella, home made in-house a couple times a day. Sauce was very good too. Overall, my only critique is that it was a tiny bit bland. I was prepared to go into the 9s based on the look, but it needs a little more flavor. The melanzana Lucoli (folded pizza like a calzone) was truly incredible. 9.3.

Since learning about Dave Portnoy & One Bite, I’ve tried to use Dave’s scale as accurately as possible (6’s are good, 7’s strong & solid, 8’s exceptional & 9’s almost non-existent). On this site, I don’t see any 8’s but Lucoli & I know exactly why. I only eat plain now, just like Dave. There are four things about Lucoli that stand out to me: 1. The crust is thin, light, crispy & delicious; 2. The sauce is superb, Nobile’s creation; 3. The mozzarella is so unique, hand made by Nobile & you won’t find anything like it or as good anywhere; & 4. The owner & staff are the nicest people you’ll ever come across in a business establishment. The highest I’ve rated on this site is a 6.8 for a very good solid top-notch pie. The pie here at Lucoli is head & shoulders above anything I’ve had, including all the supposed “experts” on Long Island & NYC. I live across the Hudson from this place but I’ve been back five times...it’s that good! My suggestion? Try this place just one time. I predict you’ll be back as a regular as well. Nobile’s also an oven-builder & his ovens tend to show up in the top spots in this industry.
