Over priced pizza that doesn't even have sauce to the edge(it stops about two inches shy) and good calzones both of which you have to endure long waits and snooty service and crowds to get. Even the owner's mother who I spoke with at the doctor one day thinks the sauce should go to the edge for what they charge.

Aside for the wait, the pizza was fantastic. Simple and true to its ingredients, flavorful, and included massive bunches of basil on every pie. The staff were friendly and "real" as my high-school students would say.

The best pizza I ever had outside of Italy. They only make pizza at this place, which is good because its perfect. European style pizza like it should be. The alleged ties to the Mob make this place even more interesting and authentic.

When we arrived at Lucali we were puzzled by the velvet rope in front of the door. As I recall the hostess opened the door and asked what we wanted. We thought that since we were standing at the door to a restaurant, it was obvious we wanted to eat. Apparently not. Nonetheless we got a table (we made sure to go pretty early). We loved that there are two items (pizzas and calzones) and limited toppings. It made ordering very simple. We dined at Lucali before we gave up meat and cheese so we don't know how it would be for us now, but last fall it was excellent. I can't say it was better than a lot of other pizzas I've had over the years but it was very good. Lucali's decor was great; the open kitchen showed just how fresh the pizzas were. I would go back (this time I'll just ask for no cheese).

Despite of the high rating, it did disappoint me somehow when I got there for a second time. (The first time I went there was on new year's eve and they were closed) I waited until 6 PM for dinner. It is a small but neat restaurant. Too many people were trying to fit into that small area, which makes it noisy. The pizza was huge, which was enough for three people, but the pie was too soft that we couldn't even hold it in our hands. You gotta pay for each topping you add, which is another downside. In general, it's something you can expect in the city. Nothing fancy in it.
