Every neighborhood needs a place where you can take all of your first dates, pretend you’ve never been before, and act surprised by the secret patio with string lights and always-available tables. In Prospect Heights, that’s Ogliastro, a neighborhood pizza place with candlelit marble tables and a full bar that we wouldn’t mind going to once a week. The pizza here is pretty good, especially the classic margherita.

Emily not only has some of the best pizza in the city, it’s also got one of the best burgers. That means you should probably get there soon.
Roberta’s is a pizza place in Bushwick that kickstarted a Neapolitan pie movement in NYC and then started selling frozen pizzas nationwide.
We feel sorry for anyone who doesn’t have a Paulie Gee’s in their neighborhood as an option for excellent Neapolitan pies.
