Lombardi's
Gennario Lombardi opened his shop in Soho in 1905—the first pizzeria in the U.S. It’s hard to vouch for how the pizzas tasted a century ago, but there’s more elbow room now after a renovation, if not the charm of the old joint. Still, Lombardi’s continues to bake a hot contender for best pie.

Lombardi's has been around since 1905, making it America's first pizzeria, and known as one of the best pizzerias in the United States. Some places don't live up to all the hype, Lombardi's isn't one of those places. The pizza is truly delicious. You can start with appetizers like salads, meatballs, or bread sticks and tomato sauce if you like. The pizza choices are kept pretty simple and uncomplicated, as they do in Italy. Order the original Margherita and you will not be disappointed. They use fresh crushed tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and Romano cheese. The crust is perfectly cooked, and the slices are surprisingly light.

Well, this place is like going back to a better day. The food is well prepared, affordable and perfect for a family or large group. The staff here are very friendly and will bend over backwards for you! The food is traditional Italian, with a wide variety of dishes, there is something for everyone. I would, however recommend the traditional cheese and tomato. It has to be done!
