Let us know your favorite
Welcome to our newest forum. Drake's posting on his new local wood-fired restaurant motivated this section. This could work well -- people ask us to recommend good brick oven restaurants when they travel, so let's build up a nice list.

well if you are in NY Little Italy you should try Lombardies,It is not wood fired it is coal , it is also the first pizzaria in the US. Ask for John he is the owner and also hr happens to be my brother. Tell him I sent you.

We have a celebrity in the forum! Maybe we can get your brother to post some pizzaiolo tips.

Coal Fired

I grew up in Philadelphia, where all the pizza ovens in South Philly were coal fired. Maybe not NYC, but close, so I know what you mean. Still, you guys don't know how to make a real cheese steak with sauce and onions. Gotta have good bread.

I will see if he wants to try his hand a chees steak, actually he might have already he just closed a store in Philly But once I get fired up I sure will try one with my own bread so I will be asking you for a recipie.Keep in touch,

Cheese Steak

Damn the clogged arteries, full speed ahead to that perfect Philly Cheese Steak. I've got a recipe from Pat's in South Philly that will make you weep, shortly before the heart attack.

I will let you know when I ready.

Hi James!

Any chance someone can take the recommendations on this list and put them on a Google map or something like that so we can quickly locate recommended pizzarias? (Or am I simply overlooking an existing feature???

Thanks in advance!

Pizza Napoletana in Mountain View, California is one of the best we have had outside of the Italian part of Switzerland.

Also, Tony's Pizza in San Francisco is outstanding as well. I learned of this place from Peter's site! Only drawback is its about an hour minimum wait for a table.
