New Feature!



Although it's officially located in Nolita, Lombardi's is just a few steps from Mulberry Street and well worth the slight detour, especially for first-time visitors. This Spring Street restaurant was licensed by the city in 1905, officially making it the first pizzeria in America. In fact, many of New York's top pizza makers learned their craft from Gennaro Lombardi. Over 100 years after it opened, the sublime, slightly charred pies made with San Marzano tomatoes and fresh mozzarella top many a New Yorker's list of the absolute best. The restaurant also has a full bar. TRAIN: 6 to Spring St

Ten Best Logo 03 Local Expert Says:

"Lombardi's signature clam pie is made with freshly-shucked bivalves from Connecticut."

Best Because: Lombardi's serves authentic New York pizza at its finest: thin, crispy and slightly blackened on the bottom from its turn in the coal oven.
