Keste is the best sit-down option for pizza in FiDi. They serve the same Neapolitan-style pies as at their location in Greenwich Village, with a huge selection of thin, doughy varieties, which can be made gluten-free as well. We like the Keste that comes with a ton of prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella, and if you’re on a budget, make use of the fact that they offer their plain margherita pizza for $5 when you dine in. That’s probably worth repeating. It’s a whole pie of very good pizza for $5.
