      I second Rigoletto. The fact that it's a block away from my apartment helps, but it is fine pizza

        Rigoletto is good, not light, not heavy, and has a good variety.

    2. The best that I've found is at Bettola, on Amsterdam between 79th and 80th. It's classic thin-crust woodburning stove Italian (I love the pizza with smoked mozarella and sausage) but I can't pry a friend away from the prosciutto.

      For a slice, I like Sal & Carmine's on Broadway in the low 100s.

        1. not sure if you have any geographic limitations but:

          serviceable slices - freddie and peppers, big nicks, t&r, rigoletto - and yes, further uptown agree w/ sal & carmines.

          pies - v&t further uptown is good but gets mixed response here..the brick oven options at celeste or bettola..and there's always patsys if you're into that.

            Personally I prefer Bettola over celeste, but if you find bettola's pizza too light, celeste's version is considerably heftier.

          2. Rigoletto. Best pizza on the Upper West.
