Village Voice's Description

After multiple fizzled relationships with chefs, starting in 1998, Donatella Arpaia has finally seized the reins herself--and the food is fantastic. This is not just a Naples-style pizzeria, but a full-blown Italian restaurant, with the scope of the menu similar to what you might find in an Italian roadside osteria. The secret emphasis is on Sicilian fare, including a stunning pasta con sarde --in this case matching a thick spaghetti with fresh sardines and bread crumbs. The pizzas, too, are wonderful, and the very short list includes the usual margherita and marinara--both fine--though our fave is the diavolo, featuring spicy salami and chile oil.

Tips from foursquare

  • Thrillist on 10/06/10

    This spot's an ode to everything Neapolitan, w/ a 5-ton, gold tiled pizza oven built by hand completely out of materials imported from Italy that gets so hot it can pump out the pies in 60-90 seconds.

    Is the boss here? If so, flag her down and she’ll be nice to you. Otherwise, get her namesake pie, and the Diavolo.
