    For sit-down pies traditional pies: Lombardi's, Grimaldis, John's, Patsy's, Arturos.

    For sit-down thin-crust pies: Una Pizza Napoletano, No.28 Carmine

    For slices: Joe's, Bleecker St. Pizza, DeMarcos, and allegedly the best...DiFaro in Midwood, Brooklyn

      Frank's on 23th Street between lexington and Park has a great slice. For brick oven I think Lombardi's on Spring is the best.

        I like frank's pizza too. It's a nice regular slice nothing fancy like coal oven slices like lombardi's and such.

            gruppo on avenue b is among my favorite pizza places. got their mushroom pie with truffle oil last night and it was delicious as always. pepperoni is also good. nice flavorful sauce, super thin crust. friendly low key staff.

              Gruppo (and their sister Posto on 2nd and 17th) are both interesting. Crust is crackerlike, not dissimilar to Il Forno in Providence. Also some unusual toppings. I think I once had a merguez pizza at Posto.

              Lombardi is great when i can make it downtown. i actually think that Caesar's on Amsterdam (83-84) on UWS is really good - thin, crispy crust, good sauce and not too heavy on the cheese. Rigoletto on Columbus (70's) is also good - light, airy crust with good toppings; I like the Garlicky.
