Una Pizza Napoletana - CLOSED
New York, NY 10003
Village Voice's Description
Una Pizza Napolitana is a frill-less but superior neighborhood pizzeria. The neighborhood would seem to be somewhere in Naples, if it werenat for the Manhattan pricing ($17 a pie is the main complaint from customers). Anthony Mangierias perfectionist pizzas originated in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey; the operation was transplanted later to the East Village. On the menu are just four pies (all individual)ano appetizers, no sides, no extras. Instead of lots of tongue-numbingly salty toppings, the basic ingredients do the work here, and that starts with the perfect dough, the perfect kneading, and the extremely hot wood-burning oven. It continues with buffalo mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, fresh cherry tomatoes, basil, and sea salt.
Tips from foursquare
From 11 AM- 4 PM seven days a week $12 gets you a pizza (Marinara, Margherita, Soppressata Piccante or Brussels Sprout) and either a salad or soft serve ice cream.

My two favorite pizzas here are the brussels sprout and pancetta pie and the cherrystone clam pizza. But you really can't go wrong with whatever calls to you on the menu.
Best sit-down pizza in the East Village (and probably Manhattan). An ambitious eater can down a whole pie, so get a couple different ones for your table.
while all are good options, the brussels sprout and pancetta pizza is outrageously good.
