good pizza, at a restaurant that takes reservations

prima Mar 10, 2012 04:44 PM

Open to any type of pizza, any type of crust, any type of oven. Would prefer a place south of 57th.

I've got Otto, La Pizza Fresca, Numero 28, Zero Otto Nove and Forcella on my list so far. Thanks for any other ideas.

    Awesome. Thanks everyone!

    If you could only choose one of the places on the list, which would it be? I realize I have a great list here already, but I'm going to start with the one that gets the most recs! ;-)

      Keeping in mind that I haven't had the pizza in all the restaurants mentioned, of the ones I have tried, my pick would be Rubirosa, especially because I happen to prefer a very thin crust.

      Photos of Rubirosa pizzas can be seen in this set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11863391@N03/sets/72157629441374859/

        Rubirosa has been my go to recently also.
        I know you are trying to narrow the list now, but Co. should prob be on the list, at least pre-narrow. ha.

            Co. is good BUT only takes reservations for parties of six or more and only before 6:30 PM.

          Being Italian and loving pizza since I was born I'd choose Numero 28 without a doubt...

                  With the caveat that I actually haven't tried any of the places mentioned in this list except for Otto, I would add Giorgione and Cacio e Vino.
