On a whim (& per some friend's recommendation...) J & I ventured 3 stops on the F train Sunday night to Lucali's Pizzeria in Carroll Gardens. We waited in the cold for 30+ minutes, but the wait was very worth it. J was raving about his "food euphoria" for hours after we left.
There are 2 things on the menu: pizza pie or calzone. The atmosphere with the huge, built-by-hand brick pizza oven is simple, rustic & warm.
Thanks J for a lovely night out!
*I didn't take pictures because it was so dark in there but found this one on yelp by I.C. O....that's the owner/mastermind, Mark, behind the counter. You should see him in action!
