The pizza and calzones reign supreme at this cash-only, BYOB pizzeria. The cozy spot attracts locals and devotees willing to face long lines for some of Mark Iacono’s sublime creations. With an always warm and inviting atmosphere, it’s no wonder this charming place ranks as one of the city’s best pizzerias.

“My favorite restaurant in the city is Lucali, a cozy, candlelit restaurant with satisfying brick-oven pizzas and calzones. I’d order the pizza with shallots, garlic, basil and mushrooms with extra sauce on the side.” – Laura Maniec (Owner, Corkbuzz)
