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.

One of the original NYC pizza places located in where else, Little Italy. Small tables are dotted around the restaurant and the aroma of pizza hits your nose the moment you enter. You can toy around with salads and such, but the main attraction is the pie. Melted to perfection and slightly burnt on bottom, this pizza is delicious and simple. The service is quick and the pizza comes out steaming. If you get the opportunity to visit the back patio for a party, take advantage. You will need to walk through the kitchen and some random halls, but when you get there, its worth it to sit outside and munch on pizza.
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!
