If you want a quality slice of pizza and great atmosphere... – ...then come to L'Asso. What can I say. I'm addicted. Since I found out about this little gem, I now only eat pizza here. They do awesome pizza with quality healthy ingredients. Unlike other 'gourmet' type pizza places, though, they do slices. And you can't beat their happy hour- $1 slices Mon-Fri 5-7. I can't even find $1 slices in my hometown of Utica, NY anymore. The people are cool as hell, too. Its a relaxed, hang out with your friends kind of place. Oh, also, their salads and pastas are great as well. Try the Fagotini- (a ravioli) it is delightful, creamy and delicious. Of course, there has to be a downfall. I'll tell you- it is that now I only eat pizza when I'm in Manhattan. 'Cause no where else compares- simple as that.
Amazing pizza! Best combinations, excellent quality! – Their menu was filled with some of the best thought-out topping combinations; it was really hard to decide. We ordered three combos. My favorite was the one with apple and gorgonzola; another person's fav was the proscuitto and arugula and the third person in our party always orders the mushroom and truffle oil pizza (called tartuffo, something like that). We also ordered the tomato soup, which was presented very elegantly and was very fresh. You can request that your pizza be one-half of one combo and one-half of another (for med and large pies only).
EAT THE PIZZA! and the panini too! – We always go in for dinner and eat the pizza. It's easily the best pizza going anywhere. But we were in for lunch and convinced to try the Panini's. FANTASTIC! Ten bucks gets you one of six panini's, a salad or soup and a drink. Thats dirt cheap for the NoLita SoHo area for sure. And the Panini was awesome. I had one with cranberry sauce and italico which is an american version of brie. so goooood. get in there!
Great people, great food – If you live in the Nolita/Soho area and haven't been here, you are missing out. I live around the corner from this "pizza shop" and I just can't have enough of it. Pizza is amazing. Staff is friendly. Grab a seat at the bar if you are coming in by yourself for a quick bite, or grab a seat in one of the booths in the corner if you are bringing a date. This place has arguably the best gourmet-style pizza in town, only a block away from the best traditional style pizza in New York (Lombardi's).
Average pizza, smoky atmosphere, there are better places – I had not known that there is almost no meat dishes here. The pizzas were so-so. The place was very smoky from the wood-oven. They really need better ventilation. After dinenr everyone smelled like a bbq.
Fantastic Pizza with Great Ambiance – While other people waited in line for an hour at Lombardi's, we found L'asso and enjoyed fantastic pizza in a quieter and more intimate setting. The food was amazing and the reggae music that was playing was just right to enjoy it and a good conversation wth my date.
This place has definately made my list of favorites!
Fantastic private party – I can't say enough good about L'Asso. I looked for months for a reasonably priced place that could accommodate about 40 people for a wedding rehearsal dinner on a Friday night. L'Asso did a fantastic job. We got three courses -- fancy salads, fancy pizzas, dessert pizza with Nutella, yum! -- for about $14 per person. The staff was amazing, so nice and so helpful. And the food was fantastic. Thank you L'Asso!
My cool trip to Italy while in NYC – L'asso is hip, typically that doesn't go hand-in-hand with authentic fare. Except here. My "no-gluten-for-me" friend couldn't help herself, even she had to try my slice, buffalo mozzarella melting in our mouths. And no, that's not the wine talking. Pizza out of a wood-burning oven sitting behind a marble, curved bar creating this open feeling to the whole place! It's so unpretentious I almost asked one of the cute waitresses to join us. Very laid-back vibe and the music made you perk up your ears because it's eclectic, makes you sway and I want to say, cool. Also, I've never tasted a better salad at a place that does $2 PBR's and slices every Friday, try the one with grilled shrimp if you like your seafood fresh. Surprisingly, I still had room for dessert because their pastry chef makes tiramisu from scratch, can you blame me? Stay cool L'asso.
incredible pizza – the pizza blowed my mind... i have no words... i still can taste it... the quality of the toppings is extremly high... the thin crost is something i experience only in rome... its the most authentic pizza i ever had in new york...
Disappointing – The place has a great feel to it, intimate and cozy. But the positives end there. 45 minutes after we ordered, we were told that the 2 salads we've ordered are no longer available--but it wasn't even 9pm. How can they run out so early AND not realize it for 45 minutes??? Then the entrees took 1 hour and 20 minutes and we ordered salads and pastas! After all that waiting, the pastas were a bit too salty and the chicken in the salads were dry. Spend your money elsewhere.
