Lombardi's is a small, neighborhood type of restaurant... founded in 1905 and is the self proclaimed first pizzeria in the US. We ordered Buddy's Special which had prosciutto, mozzarella and arugula... deeeelicious! It's an expensive pizza but worth it.

I cannot believe the reviews saying this is an excellent pizza place. Totally overrated money grab. A great restaurant doesn't need to offer a first class establishment to be great, but some effort is expected when a restaurant claims to be the best pizza in NYC and is clearly raking in a pretty penny from tourists. This place was clearly... More

Landed in Lombardi's on a rainy Monday. We hadn't booked but we got a table after a short wait. The food was great and the standout for me was the clam pie pizza. Amazing and delicious. The food came quickly and was fresh and flavourful. I was actually surprised it was so great-imagining that given its fame it wouldn't live... More

Went Saturday night, hardly a wait time. Love the look of the inside. Waiter was pretty nice, he had the typical New York accent and personality. Pizza was good, pricey but worth the visit. Wouldn't go back for a second time.

This was simply the best pizza I have ever had, hands down. After reading other reviews, we made sure to get here relatively early to avoid the busy lunch crowd (arrived around 11am) and were seated right away. We had worked up quite the appetite walking the Brooklyn Bridge earlier in the morning so my sister and I split a... More

We went to this location at the recommendation of A FREIND WHOS LIVES IN New York. I have had better pizza in Florida. I was expecting more from a New York Pizzeria

We stopped by to try out the famous Lombardi's pizza. We just wanted to a cheese pizza. It was a little pricy for pizza (~$27), but ok for vacation and it is supposed to be the first pizza place in the US. Our pizza looked like they baked it in the morning and reheated it and hence burnt the crust.... More

It's not "really" the oldest pizzeria in NYC. Pizza is just OK but greatly overpriced. Also it's cash only, which I find ridiculous. Oh, I'm Italian by the way.

Staying in Nolita

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
