Remember when your school would get a new kid, and that new kid was cool and handsome and almost instantly more popular than you? Lucali is like that. This place rolled into town one day from New York with a reputation for making some of the best pizza in the world. Maybe you hated them a bit, but then you had a slice and realized you were wrong. Lucali blends all the great qualities of a thin-crust Neapolitan pie with a classic New York slice, and the result is just incredible and having a better time at prom than you ever will. Large pies (the only size you can order) start at $24 and are the size of a manhole cover, so definitely come with friends. You can also head next door to Bay Club for smaller Lucali pizzas and calzones if you don’t feel like waiting for a table - and there’s almost always a decent wait unless you come right when they open at 5pm (or 1pm Friday and Saturday).
