Zagat guide lauds two NY pizza legends

Oct. 27, 2003

NEW YORK—The most recently published Zagat Dining Guide lauded two New York pizza legends for having the city's best pies.

According to, in the guide Grimaldi's, which is in Brooklyn, got a 27 out of a possible 30 for food, while Lombardi's, in Manhattan's Little Italy neighborhood, got a 25. Both earned praise for their crisp, coal-oven-fired pizzas.

Both pizzerias fared less well on decor and service: Grimaldi's got an 11 and a 16 respectively, while Lombardi's received marks of 11 and 15.

In 2000, Zagat gave a near-perfect 29 to Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix. The restaurant is owned and run by Chris Bianco (see related story "Who's Who: Chris Bianco.")
