L'asso pizza is what pizza should taste like. They have a good variety and their ingredients are always fresh. The salads are really great and cheap, considering one bowl feeds three people. Everyone who works at L'asso is really

Pros: delicious and always consistent

Cons: I wish you could take your drinks outside

I am surprised to see the bad reviews on here. This place is by far the best pizza place I have been to. If you are into the European style thin crust, not too greasy pizza, this is the right place to go. But, if you are into Ray's pizza:

Waiter was too busy prancing around. Boy trying to be girl with full-on makeup. Prancing around. Ridiculous. Took 1/2 hour to get a slice of pizza. Met up with a table of 6. Waiter was so discombobulated that 4 slices were billed at $2.50

Pros: was none because the staff was unattentive

Cons: zero service

We were sent here by a barmaid from a couple of blocks away who said she'd regularly ordered in from there.... it was sooo tasty - Truffle Oil is amazing!
The pizzas are great to share and it had a nice atmosphere for somewhere modern.

This place was highly rated so we checked it out. The outside tables were packed and after being seated inside I know why. The front room was basically the kitchen of a big diner. The atmosphere was one of a busy kitchen. The menu was

My boss came over to my desk on a Tuesday and told me to find food for a twenty person meeting with clients and board members. The meeting was at 1:30 and he told me at 12:00! I made a few calls and was refused by a few local places

I have been to Rome several times and experienced the amazing pizza there. When I go to L'asso I feel as though I've stepped into a Roman pizzeria. The thin crust pizza is excellent. I have many, many times daydreamed about and craved

Pros: everything from food to people, to location, to prices (compared to the neighborhood)

Their menu was filled with some of the best thought-out topping combinations; it was really hard to decide. We ordered three combos. My favorite was the one with apple and gorgonzola; another person's fav was the proscuitto and arugula

Pros: Amazing gourmet pizza.

Cons: Service was good, but nothing stand-out.

We always go in for dinner and eat the pizza. It's easily the best pizza going anywhere. But we were in for lunch and convinced to try the Panini's. FANTASTIC! Ten bucks gets you one of six panini's, a salad or soup and a drink. Thats

If you live in the Nolita/Soho area and haven't been here, you are missing out. I live around the corner from this "pizza shop" and I just can't have enough of it. Pizza is amazing. Staff is friendly. Grab a seat at the bar if you are

I had not known that there is almost no meat dishes here. The pizzas were so-so. The place was very smoky from the wood-oven. They really need better ventilation. After dinenr everyone smelled like a bbq.

While other people waited in line for an hour at Lombardi's, we found L'asso and enjoyed fantastic pizza in a quieter and more intimate setting. The food was amazing and the reggae music that was playing was just right to enjoy it and a

I can't say enough good about L'Asso. I looked for months for a reasonably priced place that could accommodate about 40 people for a wedding rehearsal dinner on a Friday night. L'Asso did a fantastic job. We got three courses -- fancy

Pros: great for big groups, fantastic staff, great food

Cons: not on the prettiest block

L'asso is hip, typically that doesn't go hand-in-hand with authentic fare. Except here. My "no-gluten-for-me" friend couldn't help herself, even she had to try my slice, buffalo mozzarella melting in our mouths. And no, that's not the

The place has a great feel to it, intimate and cozy. But the positives end there. 45 minutes after we ordered, we were told that the 2 salads we've ordered are no longer available--but it wasn't even 9pm. How can they run out so early AND

I had one slice of the mozzerella basil and cherry tomato pizza and quickly stuffed the rest into my mouth as fast as possible before any of my friends could ask for a taste. also saw a live show in the basement late night that rocked!

L'asso is located on Kenmare street in between Little Italy and Soho. Its location is great because it is only a few blocks away from everything, Chinatown, Delancy, Broadway Shopping and Soho are just a few minutes walk away. The pizza is great because it comes out from a brick oven. They have a large variety of pizza to choose from and creative names for them such as "Snow White" for pizza containing ricotta, mozzarella, oregano, garlic and olive oil. Delicious!

Pros: CLOSE TO LITTLE ITALY

This is great food at a reasonable price. It's a great cheap date place. The service could be better. one waiter couldn't remember what we had to drink and we were the only people in the place. It's worth the trip.

Great new place in NoLita with delicious pizza from the wood oven. Great entrees too- best Vegetarian lasagana I've ever had. Warm and cozy dining room, inexpensive, welcoming staff. Casual and fun- open all day too.

Pros: Great Pizza

Editorial from

Occupying a small corner of NoLIta, L'asso's tiny, no-frills but rustically charming digs are insufficient to accommodate the locals and nearby-NYU undergrads who flock in for the brick-oven pizzas and pastas. The dimly lit dining area…
