Lombardi’s Pizza Serves Up America’s First Pizza

Sunday December 28th, 12:27 pm by TTSNYC.

Lombardi’s Pizza on Spring Street is America’s first pizzeria, serving up original coal fired oven pizza since 1905. Expect to wait for your table when arrive, but if it’s only you and a date, it’s much more likely to get a table faster. The unique thing about Lombardi’s is that they have speakers outside, allowing you to wait outside of the restaurant and still be able to hear your name when it’s called. The pizza that is served at Lombardi’s only has the finest ingredients, and for over 100 years, they have been making one of Americans most popular food in a simple, fresh way. Gennaro Lombardi was the one who opened the place, first as a grocery store, so we can owe it all to him. Pictures are up on the walls here that proudly show the history that the restaurant has been through. It’s not a fancy pizza place, nor is it too casual, it has just the right balance. Everything on the menu is straight to the point, you can choose from a small and large pizza , white pizza or plain, or add a choice of about a dozen toppings. The pizza is perfect in every way, with a thin, crispy but not too crispy crust, original Italian sauce, and smooth mozzarella. Lombardi’s is a local and tourist favorite, plus they also deliver if you don’t want to wait on line.
