Una Pizza Napoletana

Originally, Una Pizza Napoletana was in the East Village. Then it moved to San Francisco, where it was one of the best pizza spots in the city, and now it’s back in NYC. The new location is on the Lower East Side, and it’s a big space with high ceilings and a minimalist kitchen in the back that sort of looks like a lab. The pizzas here are Neapolitan, with virtually no toppings other than cheese and tomato, and, for how simple they are, they are very, very good. The crust is chewy and flavorful, and the ingredients themselves are top-notch. There are also desserts and small plates from the Wildair people (who are partners in this place), namely a beef crudo with olive and pistachio that may be better than the pizza. You should know, however, that this place doesn’t have its liquor license yet - so what should be a lively bar area feels a bit dead. Come for an early look if you’re fanatical about new restaurants and/or pizza, or consider waiting a few weeks until wine is available and things are fully settled.
