Luzzo’s is known for it’s delicious pizzas. It has the same owner as Ovest Pizzoteca, another of my favorites. Their pizza is never disappointing… Fresh ingredients, not too much cheese, very flavorful tomato sauce, AMAZING crust. God I could just eat that crust on it’s own.
Last time we went we decided to try one of their pastas. The pasta was good the same reason their pizzas are. Fresh, high quality ingredients. You really can’t go wrong. The noodles were a bit too eggy tasting. They kind of “snapped” as you bit into them as they did not have the “bounce” that really nice pastas have. Nonetheless, I ate it all. Truffle oil and porcini mushrooms… Mmm…
