  1. 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.

      absolutely agree. it's one of my favorite slices all around.

        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.

      2. 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.

          2. 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!
