Although not a large venue with a long, complicated menu, Lucali has made quite an impression on pizza lovers in Brooklyn. This no-frill restaurant lends an air of authenticity, as does the old-fashioned brick oven and the opportunity to watch owner Mark Iacono at work. This pizza joint is known for its long wait times but you can bring your own libations to your table. It has steadily gained popularity since 2006. Numerous celebrities frequent the restaurant for its delicious thin crust pizza and those that are no-so-famous find themselves returning frequently for a delicious Lucali’s pie.
