Pros: fresh, high quality

Cons: cons are its pros: few choices, closed when dough runs out

.

Una currently holds the title of worst pizza/experience in NYC. We arrived right when the place opened so we only had to wait 30min for the 12inch pie to arrive. The pizza was covered in water and only 1/2 the pizza actually had tomatoe

Pros: I enjoyed the company of my friends

Cons: tomatoe sauce replaced by water?!!?

.

In the style of the pizza of Naples. They have limited pizza choices, about three or four, if I recall correctly. We tried two, both simple cheese and tomatoes, and were pleased with both, although one was slightly sweeter than the other because of the type of tomato. Another was plain cheese, and possibly a fourth had just a tomato topping.

As good as the pizzas of Naples? Close enough, and maybe as good. Served with knife and fork. Actually, in Naples, I saw some of the locals tear and fold the crust--so much for our trying to be authentic!

This place closes when they run out of dough for the evening. The preparation of the dough is labor-intensive and takes hours and hours.

Definitely I'd go back! Not easy to get to, and call ahead for hours. Service is slow, but it's a nice place, small, congenial.
