So far we are planning to get the Del Re and the Margarita with mozzarella di bufula, think we should get one more pie or do you think that could be enough? This is after a pretty heavy day of NY eating but not a crazy amount.

  1. Get 3 pies and a shared appetizer.

      1. re: sam1

        Even with the del re? any other suggestions for the third?

      2. You can always start with two and add a third or fourth. I like the regular margherita with cow's milk mozzarella.

        1. Definitely the del re! I swooned about it in my reviews. I went with 4 and i think we did two pies and an app and the nutella dessert

          1. I love the regular Margherita, and the partner/pizzaiolo Roberto told us it's his favorite! The Del Re is richer/heavier, but I'd recommend a third pie over appetizers/desserts. Eat up - Keste is my favorite Neapolitan pizzeria in the city!

              Think its worth getting the regular margarita over/with the buffalo mozzarella one? We were thinking one of those two, the del re, and the sick sick sick looking calzone

                Unfortunately I haven't had the Regina Margherita yet, hopefully someone else here can help you out. I've read great things about the calzone and have been meaning to try it, please let me know what you think.

            2. i was at Keste on Monday before an early show at LPR and had the margherita and the capricciosa. both were excellent, as always.

              Protip: burrata arrives on Thursday and is usually sold out before the end of the weekend. Probably worth trying if they have it when you're there.

              1. I just tried the calzone and found it to be majorly unbalanced. The salami they use is very salty, and they put a ton of it inside the calzone, but it's mostly in the center. This makes the edges of the calzone mostly ricotta/mozzarella cheese (really creamy and heavy) while the middle is meat heavy and borderline too salty (and I love salty food). When you get a bite of some cheese and some salami, it's great. But there were far too many bites of only meat or only cheese. I think I drank nearly the entire carafe of water by myself while eating this!
