Let me just get my only complaint about Lombardi's out of the way. The restaurant is very small and cramped and would not be appropriate for a large group of people. Their pizza is the best I've ever had, not just in NYC, and I've eaten a lot of pizza in my time. The sauce is zesty and a little sweet, and the crust is just slightly charred (not burnt, just a little black in spots, with a little crunch to it). Honestly, I don't even think toppings are necessary because the crust, sauce and cheese are so good. But to each his own, right? This place is as close to perfect as a pizzeria can get.
