Great pizza is not hard to find near our NYC Hotel, and Lucali is one of the NY Restaurants that serves some of the best.
Unless your goal is to start a quarrel, you might want to avoid enlisting New Yorkers in a debate about which NY Restaurant serves the best pizza. If you did ask locals for their favorite, however, Lucali is one name that is very likely to come up.
Owner Mark Iacono didn’t set out to create a pizza joint that would become part of the Brooklyn landscape. This all happened very much by accident. When a neighborhood candy store closed down, Iacono didn’t like the idea that the space would become something boring or that it would change hands again and again.
He took the spot and decided to perfect the type of pizza he loved best: thin crust and baked in a brick oven. The unmistakable flavor of brick oven pizza is something that Iacono grew up enjoying, so he made it his goal to create this style of pizza at the NY Restaurant he would call Lucali.
The menu is simple, and the vibe is casual. Reservations are not taken, the only payment accepted is cash, and you’ll find no alcohol on the menu. Instead, guests are welcome to bring their own bottles, and this has helped to propel Lucali to a favorite neighborhood hangout for locals who love to come with their favorite bottle of Italian wine and enjoy some of the City’s best pizza.
In addition to pizza, the menu at this NY Restaurant includes calzones that are big enough for the table to share. Both the calzones and the pizza are made with fresh ingredients including handmade mozzarella and just-picked basil.
When you want some of the City’s very best pizza then a stop to this NY Restaurant is a must. Planning a visit to our NYC Hotel? Be sure to take a look at our current Special Offers.
