At the corner of Spring and Mott Street, stands the renown Lombardi's pizza: the first Pizzeria in America (since 1905)
The narrow walkway to the Takeout counter...where there were two people frantically handling all the phone calls for pizza delivery orders.
We decided to grab a small classic pizza pie with pepperoni and see what the fuss was all about.
It came up to $21.20 (incl. tax) for a small with one topping (yikes!)
The pizza smelled delicious on our subway ride back home (good thing we had some Pinkberry to tide us over so we didn't gobble it all up on our way back).
The pizza had a nice thin crust baked in a coal oven which added a smoky taste to the pizza. Then it was topped with a really delicious tomato sauce with basil and huge sections of fresh mozzarella cheese (which was crazy good) and then the pepperoni.
Overall: My friends and I weren't fans of the smoky taste of the coal oven pizza crust and so we weren't blown away with the pizza as a whole. I thought the components were delicious individually (the sauce and fresh cheese were the highlights). It was also quite expensive for a pizza with one topping. In our opinion, we didn't think that Lombardi's was the best pizzeria we've ever tried.
