LA Hound looking for great Neopolitan Pizza in Manhattan

Coming to NYC in a week. Am getting tired(?) of Motorino, and am looking for another place that makes great Neo pies. I know Motorino's pies are not Neo. Have been to Luzzo, want to try another. On my way in for the airport, I'll make a quick pit stop at Patsy's 116 St, so please don't include that. Appreciate your input.

  1. Keste. I really only like their Margherita variants. But I think it is as close as we get in NYC to Neapolitan style pizza. Puffy cornicione, soft wet crust. Not everyone's cup of tea.

    Motorino is pretty close to Neapolitan but a bit firmer crust, Luzzo's not really Neapolitan style (more of a hybrid), Patsy's is old school New York/Neapolitan style.

    1. Keste is the obvious next choice -- it's doughier and wetter than Motorino, so perhaps truer to the Naples spirit.

      I've been hearing good things about Donatella's as well.

      Rossopomodoro at Eataly looks promising as well, if you can stand the lines. I'd look into La Pizza Fresca as well.
