    Without a shadow of a doubt it has to be Sacco's on 9th bet 54th and 55th.

    I miss that place so much now I have moved to the Village. Great tasty crust with just the right amount of airy crunch.

    Service is surly but the slice more than makes up for it.

      Mmmm... I second Sacco's. It's great, especially the anchovies!

      In the other direction is Rigoletto on Columbus and 70th.

          I like Francesco on Columbus bet'n 68th and 69th better than Rigoletto.

            I agree. I think Francesco is better than Rigoletto.

              I prefer La Traviata to Rigoletto, and probably Francesco. Okay, I admit it's best not to inspect sanitation conditions too closely. What Francesco has going for it is greater turnover of pies; pies can sit around a very long time at the other two, plus selection is limited other than at peak times.

          That's a tough one. Nothing great in that area in terms of NY pizza.

          I think your best bet is Mariella's on 8th Avenue between 56th and 57th Street. They have a pretty decent slice and shouldn't be more than a 10 or 15 minute walk from Lincoln Center.

          Enjoy!

              The standout slice at Mariella's is definitely the white slice. I'm not so crazy about their sauce, but they do get a nice character to their crust ; they seem to get some crazy heat out of their deck oven.
