When Anthony Mangieri, pizzaiolo for the East Village’s Una Pizza Napoletana, closed shop in 2009 "to make a change," move west, and open up somewhere he could "use his outrigger canoe and mountain bike more often," it was the ultimate insult. You're taking one of the New York City’s favorite Neapolitan pizzerias to people who denigrate New York's Mexican food? So you can canoe and mountain bike? (He was for real, by the way — there’s even a mini documentary about his bicycle passion.)

Good for Mangieri, and good for San Franciscans, who with Una Pizza Napoletana inherited one of the country's best Neapolitan pies (if only Wednesday through Saturday, until 9 p.m., or until they're "out of dough"). Motorino (No. 19) opened in Mangieri's old East Village spot, which greatly softened the blow. But if you don't think it was a loss for New York, you're kidding yourselves.

  • simplified menu chart.
  • Let me just reiterate that this is the best pizza I have ever eaten.
  • No matter the length of the line, this pizza is worth it. The entire pizza that you will eat is worth it. Any of them - delicious.
  • My favorites are the Filetti and the Illaria.
  • A few-hour wait is nothing once you bite into one of just four pies from a master pizzaiolo.
  • This new place from New York's Anthony Mangieri promises to be one of the best Naples-style pizza joints in the country when it opens next week.
  • If you doubted their authenticity, this should set you right.
  • four days a week, 5pm until the dough runs out. Open 12 hours a week and there will still be a 2 hour wait just to get a seat.
  • Deliciously fluffy crust!! My fave is the margherita but the Saturday special is a nice additional option for some meat and white sauce. Get one pizza per person!
  • Go on Saturday for the Appollonia pizza, and have the sparkling red wine.
  • Best pizza in the city! Vegetarian pizzas only.
  • On the Filetti, crust and cheese are dotted with cherry tomatoes that pop with sweetnessparticularly in summer, when just about nothing could be better than a tomato. Except one on pizza this good.
  • Best neopolitan pizza in town. Don't get scared by others who say there's a two hour wait.
  • Bitches be like "fuck yeah delicious pizza!!!"
  • The Apollonia pizza, available only Saturdays, is incredible. Eggs, salami, parm reg, mozzarella, olive oil, garlic, basil, pepper and sea salt.
  • The Ilaria (with smoked mozzarella) is the best pizza on the menu with its strong flavor and fresh arugula. The margherita is probably the best in town, also.
  • All pizzas are personal sized and $25 which is pricey. The quality is pretty good, but you can find comparable at other places around the city.
  • It's only open 4 days a week, there's nothing on the menu but pizza, atmosphere is nil, there's often a wait but everyone agrees that Anthony Mangieri's wood-fired, Neapolitan pies are perfect.
  • Few places put this much love into perfecting the pizza.
  • The best pizza that I have eaten outside of Europe. Small menu, and one very talented pizzaiolo.
