“friend of mine recommended this really neat cozy spot in the Lower East Side so I had to check it out.”
“Only the dessert was good.”
“Nice wine list.”

“suggest the open ravioli, wild boar lasagna and crispy chicken as entrees and Apizz Margherita, Octopus and Mozzarella for starters but you can't go wrong anything from the menu.”
“its the second time here for me, i needed the phone # so i looked it up on city search, and now i know why people take time to write these reviews, if you truley like a place you want to tell people and do the restaurant a favor for the great time and gre”
“think it is to tangy for pizza, so people love it, like my dinner companion, but what we both agreed on was the amazing pork chops and skirt steak that came out of this huge wood oven, we went for pizza but will go back for more.”
“food, service, and a lovely cozy room, soooooooo nice to find.”
“And we were too full to eat the gnocchi so we took it home and I had it for lunch the next day - really good but not enough meat for the price.”

Great Place, Medocre Food. It's a shame that a place this beautiful and with a great menu has to have such mediocre food. I'm a big fan of their sister restaurant Peasant but unfortunately Apizz is missing the mark. The "apizz's" individual pizzas that are the restaurant's namesake are not very good. The crusts are not crisp enough and the toppings and sauce are uninspired and bland. The salads and other dishes were also bland. Everything was in need of a touch of salt or a bit of spice. I love the idea of their Bread being served with sides of fresh ricotta and tomato sauce but even here the sauce needs a little kick (garlic, salt, basil - something!). Too bad because the service was good enough and the place is very cozy. I'd recommend Serafina over Apizz (and I HATE Serafina!).
One Room. One Oven.
Up and coming is understating the obvious for this cozy Italian restuarant. I was told about the centerpiece, a giant brick oven,
in an about the new york grapevines and decieded to check it out. Graciously greeted by the doorman I entered this short hallway making me feel like celebrity. Hosts immediatly make eye contact, giving you a familiar experience. Rustic, elegantly warm mohagany essence fills the room. The host escorted me to our seats and we were delighty with our view of chefs preparing assisted by a massive brick oven. The food exquiste, service immaculate. another surprise was the lounge downstairs. A perfect place to get a glass of white and unwhind...Apizz hit the spot.
