If you want to go to heaven minus the dying part, go to Lucali. This pizza lovers paradise is magical. The pie is thin and crunchy at the crust, with a sweet and savory tomato sauce recipe that Mario Batali would love to get his hands

I wouldn't wish this on anyone, so many better places to eat in Brooklyn and who needs the hassle. I wouldn't eat there again if they paid me. If I hadn't been with friends I wouldn't have suffered the wait in the first place but having

Pros: plenty of time to read War and Peace while waiting.

Cons: long wait, 2-3 hours, Very rude hostess

I was skeptical, initially, when a good friend of Italian-American extraction insisted that we go out for her birthday to a place that only serves pizza and calzones...but then again, it only serves pizza and calzones! There's something to be said for sticking to what you know, and we found both of Lucali's menu items--offered with a variety of fillings/toppings--to be top-drawer.

Thought it'd be a pleasant pizza eating experience so thought we'd check it out-- the wait absolutely killed it. We were told (by a could-be-friendlier wait staff) that we'd have to wait an hour, we sat down more than 2 hours later. Made

Cons: a bit pricey for the food, 2+ hour wait

incredible pizza and wonderful spot to dine! if you come on the weekend, be prepared to wait! it's generally better (if you can) to come early on a week night. it's worth it!!

I have been to Lucali a handful of times. I always love the vibe and the food is definately delicious.\r
Last night I went again - bringing a friend from out of town - thinking it would be a scrumptious/inexpensive option. I was so-so

My wife and I arrived at Lucali at 6pm (when it opened) and had to wait about an hour for a table. It was worth it, though. Beautiful atmosphere with great lighting and a generally warm neighborhood feeling all around. The owner makes

Okay, this pizza joint was reasonable and and the pies were delicious. I brought my family to NY for a vacation and they never had such good pizza living in Hawaii. The staff was great!

The best pizza pie ever. I went there two times only... the first they had a problem with the staff and I had to eat my pizza outside, with a cool wind. The second time (Oct 4th, 2008), I tried to call first to know if they would be open

Cons: They can improve customer attention... they should!

I am a pizza fanatic and grew up in an Italy, so I know what fresh is! Last night was the first time and certainly not the last time I would be going to Lucali. They use the freshest ingredients and Owner/Chief actually grads fresh cheese

yes, there is always a line. Of course, because it is the most delicious, yummy pizza! You don't feel the cheese' you don't feel the sauce, and other ingredients you preferred; you just feel the havenly taste. Even when you're aeting it,

Pros: friendly, yummy, etc.

Cons: I just want a nice, juice, soft pizza! Otherwise, thumbs-up all the way!

I'm so glad this place opened up! The restaurant doesn't have a menu and serves only 2 dishes, pizza and calzones. The pizza is amazing - thin crusted airy dough, the freshest tomato sauce, and other ingrediants that you choose.

Best Pizza in New York -- worth the trip to Brooklyn! Service is great, atmosphere is outstanding, but above all else the pizza is amazing. Simple menu to choose from, pizza or calzone. All they need to add is a desert. On the plus

This place has potential. Homey atmosphere and nice, friendly service. They even call you on your cellphone when your table is ready! However, having to pay extra for basil on your brick oven pizza is like driving a car without gas!

The best pizza in New York? Some discriminating eaters think so and we're inclined to agree. This Carroll Gardens eatery isn't your average pizza joint. For starters, the candlelit interior gives off a chic vibe. There's also no menu. The…
