Lombardi's vs. Arturo's
We are staying in the area of little Italy, transplanted New Yorkers, now living in Fla, yearning for the pizza of our childhoods.
We went past Lombardi's today at 3pm and discouraged by the hour wait. We are also within walking distance of Arturo's on Houston. Which restaurant has the better pizza?
We stayed in Soho last weekend and had fantastic pizza at Arturo's, better than Lombardi's in our opinion (crispier crust). plus the atmosphere at Arturo's is much nicer, wonderful live piano jazz all night when we were there. We sat at the bar for dinner and it was great fun... outdoor tables as well which is nice!
Arturo's for sure but why not both?
The clams oreganata at Arturo's looked sick.
Live music is a definite plus.
For dessert dont miss the rice pudding place.
Managia and forza pizza.
