    Amazing food! Caesar salad and the margarita (half plain half pepperoni and meatball) is a must!! Cash only but there are ATMs available

    The margherita with pancetta, pepperoni, and olives is incredible. So amazing.

    It’s good but not amazing. Margherita with premium toppings is the way to go. We also added ricotta. Bruschetta is pretty good too.

    Pizza was one of the best I ever had... Margherita with spinach. Well worth the wait. I will come here again from over an hour drive just to have dinner! Top notch.

    They accept reservations Mon-Thurs. Pizza was yummy! Exactly how it should be. Cash only, but they do have ATMs inside. We ordered a Large (18") Margherita to share, $24.

    Grandmas meatballs were so good. Pizza was great but did not meet the hype. I would recommend the clam pie and cake boss pie with prosciutto. Pies are not very big and the value is not great.

    One of the best pizzas I've eaten. They come with surprisingly little mozzarella, but that does not effect the quality. Cash Only!

    Cash only. White pie with meatballs is awesome as is the meatball app.

    ALWAYS worth the wait. Pizza sold by the pie and cash only. There is a reason this place has been around so long and is always crowded.

    My favorite pizza in all of Manhattan! I get it topped with ricotta cheese and sausage. It's always hot and crispy. Mmm.

    Excellent pizza - definitely worth the hype for its historic importance as the first pizza restaurant in the nation.

    Meatball appetizer is delicious! You won't go wrong with a Ricotta, garlic spinach and pepperoni Pizza Pie! 🍕😻

    Haven't tried others places yet to compare, but the food and service here was so great, i'll probably never eat pizza anywhere else again. Very true to my memories of Italy!

    Best coal oven pizza and calzone in the city, bar none. Go early on weekends and during San Gennaro.

    A huge tourist spot, to be sure, but the pizza here is good. Cash only. Whole pies only. Stay away from the clam pie, even though it may be recommended elsewhere.

    So even though I am from Chicago I love real New York pizza and we have a place called Napolita and it's way better. Sorry. This was ok not what I wanted.

    As always, the pizza was delicious. My gf and I didn't have to wait too long, so that made the experience that much better. You MUST, I repeat MUST, add the homemade meatballs toppings to your meal. P

    The pizza is still good, and I really enjoyed the house salad too, but only tourists really come here and it's offensively overpriced

    The pizza really is good here but also loved the house salad and organic greens a big plus! Also it was nice that they brought the food quick as we were really hungry. :e)

    Sure, the atmosphere is one step away from the Olive Garden, and the lines get ridiculous, but the pizza itself lives up to the hype.

    I had margheritas pizza. It was delicious! Wait was about 15 min for two. The service however made me feel like I was being rushed out.

    No options of pizza to chose: Just the Original Lombardi's pizza adding as many toppings as you like. Try it with Meatballs+mushrooms! Yummy!

    The red is much better than the White. Simple is best, just pick a meat and you can't go wrong.

    If you are in NY, you have to come here. This is the first pizzeria established in Manhattan. Great coal fired pizza.

    Honestly I don't understand why people are making so much fuss out of this place! Pizzas are tasteless +you drink & eat w plastic plates & cups! not what I expect from I quote "the best pizza in NY"

    Lombardi's got just the right amount of fresh mozzarella and a tangy sauce redolent of basil. All of the toppings are of high quality, especially the *sliced homemade meatballs*.

    So good.. but come on a random week night for less wait time. No reservations but if you can grab a seat on the bench the heat lamp will keep you warm!

    One of NYC oldest and best pizza places in town. The oven they use is from 1902 and you have to try the clam pie!

    Expensive, worth the price if the service stepped it up. They tag team service but one of my servers couldn't get me a refill without the main server. Pizza is outstanding though.

    Pepperoni pizza and margarita are the best pizza's on the menu. Recommended but a bit pricey.

    There is so much better pizza elsewhere! Classic, yes, but just head over to Prince St. and grab a fresher, more quality slice with even better cheese. Plastic cups? Come on. Is this Chuck E. Cheese?

    New York definitely has better pizza, so go here only if you like your pizza with a sprinkling of history.

    Really friendly staff and good margarita pizza. Cash only though, and they have tons of competition for Napoli style

    Friend told me I had to come here. Tried the calzone, and was quite disappointed. Had so many so much better pizzas in my life. Now I regret having consumed the calories.

    Good pizza, not italian but yummy and fresh, very delicious Sangria, but quite spendy and low service. No dessert or coffee. #nextoneplease
