Lombardo’s of Bay Ridge

$$$$
Hours:THU
5PM-10PM

A sit-down spot where you can only order whole pies, Lombardo’s feels very much like a cartoon Italian restaurant, checkered tablecloths and all. They serve whole pies in 12- and 18-inch varieties, as well as calzones and a handful of salads for those who like to consume leaves with their bread products. The crust here is thin, charred, and pleasantly chewy. We especially love the hot soppressata pie—which comes thoroughly drenched in Calabrian chilies and their requisite oils—and its foil, the bianca.
