When a Restaurant in NY serves pizza fired in a 100-year-old coal oven, there is a good chance that it’s going to be pretty special. Luzzo’s is a top spot for NYC Pizza and is a favorite of locals and guests at our Manhattan Hotel.
Luzzo’s serves great pizza. That’s not exactly groundbreaking news in a City like New York where it seems that some of the country’s best pizza can be found on every corner. But even in this sea of fabulous pizza, Luzzo’s stands out. They have one of only a few coal-fired ovens, and this helps to give their Neapolitan-style pizza a distinct flavor.
More than two dozen pizza options are on the menu, and the toughest part about a visit here might be deciding which one to try. In the top spot of the menu is the Bufala. This features tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella, and fresh basil. It’s a great pick for the pizza purist.
If you want to try something a little different, consider the Piemonte. This pie is devoid of tomato sauce and includes mozzarella, potatoes, and pancini mushrooms. Another top pick is the EST with tomato sauce, mozzarella, ricotta, spicy salami, and basil.
No matter which toppings you choose, your pizza will be served on a thin and crispy crust that alone is worth a visit to Luzzo’s. If you’re thinking of the pizza served by national chains then you won’t know what hit you when you take your first bite of the impossibly crispy masterpieces served at this NY Restaurant.
During your next stay at our Manhattan Hotel, consider embarking on your own personal quest to find the City’s best pizza, and make sure that quest includes a stop at Luzzo’s.
