    One of our best dining experience in town, the food and the service was so great, the way of the service was more than friendly, they treat us like a family and we felt like we are in Napoli ❤❤

    Umm, yea, this place is ridiculous! Not only is the pizza amazing, so is literally everything else: service, decor, salads, and even the chef complimented my earrings. Also, great obscure music!!

    Wow,awesome pizza! Had the tricolore and the bosciola (not sure if I spelled that properly but it had truffle oil).The truffle oil was perfectly subtle and the dough was fantastic, must try this place

    We live a block away and are there a lot. The Speck and Brie Pizza, the L'Americano Panini and the Homemade Tiramisu along with a bottle of wine is a good night out.

    Best pizza I've had in Astoria... I can't stop going back! And with 40+ different pizzas, I want to try a new one every time. I recommend trying the Pizzucca. Unique and delicious.

    The owner is very hands-on, was super concerned about our food and overall experience. And he brought my sister and I shots of limoncello before we left. Great customer service lives here! .

    Their seafood (calamari, shrimp, mussels) is very fresh and delicious. They cook it perfectly into the pizza so don't be afraid to try pizza with the seafood.

    The pear and gorgonzola pizza—made with fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, Williams pears, parmigiano reggiano and basil ($12)—is an unexpected and tasty combination. Read more

    40 varieties of Neapolitan-style pizza with great homemade mozzarella. Sandwiches are also worth a try.
