good pizza, at a restaurant that takes reservations

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.

                  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! ;-)

                  1. re: prima

                    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...


                    1. re: RGR

                      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.

                        Thanks so much, RGR & Hey19. ;-)

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

                            thanks for mentioning that, kathryn!

                      2. re: prima

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