Luzzo's Coal Oven Pizza - Westbury
I love the coal oven pizza at the original Luzzo's on 1st Ave. so, end of business Tuesday, I excitedly headed over to eat at this new offshoot . I left disappointed.
We arrived at 7 PM and were seated immediately. The restaurant was maybe 1/2 full. Everyone was welcoming. Our server was friendly and attentive. All good! I'm ready to eat...
We split a 12" Bufala pizza that was ok, not bad, but just ok - nothing like the pies at the original. At $17 for a 12" pie, I expect true yumminess.
My mixed green salad w/balsamic vinegar was underdressed and the cherry tomatoes were actually bitter ($7). My friend had an arugula salad ($9) that she said was ok.
We didn't bother with dessert.
Too bad - I won't bother going back.
The whole experience was second rate. I should have left when I saw that the ladies room was dirty, out of toilet paper and had a broken faucet. Would have gone to Cheesecake Factory if I knew I didn't have to wait an hour on a Sat night for a table. Service was poor, waiters were young and inexperienced. The vegetable pizza was absolutely tasteless. Stick to Umberto's in New Hyde Park or Grimaldi's in Garden City.
Luzzo's I have to say that I was disappointed by this stop. For some reason a simple Margherita Piizza is trashed by a high price. The prices are at the level of when you visit New York CIty and go out for dinner. Crazy, the 12 inch is a disgrace at the price.
I would not suggest anyone even stop . Go to Grimaldies consistent and reasonable.
Even better go to Massa Pizza in Huntington
