Martina is a counter-service place from the people behind Shake Shack and Marta (the Nomad pizza restaurant), and they specialize in small thin-crust pizzas that are baked to order. The plainer pizzas here aren’t very exciting, but we like the one with squash blossoms and the one that comes topped with an egg. We also like the fact that you can start your meal with a spritz (in a plastic cup) and end it with a thing of soft serve covered in olive oil and chocolate sauce. The thing is, it’s way too casual for something like date night, and the pizzas aren’t large enough to satisfy any hard-core pizza cravings . Although if you want a quick easy lunch or some carbs and a spritz on your way home from work, this place is good for that.

An excellent Israeli fusion restaurant in the East Village. No, you can’t order hummus and falafel. Yes, you’ll still love it.
Bruno in the East Village mills its own whole wheat flour, and tops its pizza with things like fermented tomatoes. It's...interesting.

Speedy Romeo LES
A smaller, very casual Lower East Side outpost of Brooklyn’s Speedy Romeo. They may be known for pizza, but that’s not the best thing here.
Razza is a wood-fired pizza spot in Jersey City that’s well worth a trip from New York. Or from anywhere else.
Bocce Union Square
Bocce USQ is an outdoor Italian restaurant in Union Square Park, and it’s perfect for an after-work spritz when you’d rather be in Rome.
Suggested by our writers
Pizza in a sterile Flatiron District hotel lobby just doesn’t feel like the Danny Meyer hospitality experience we’ve grown accustomed to.
