Best Pizza With A Reservation

I've been asked by a friend what my choice would be for the best place to go for pizza, but it has to take reservations because it will probably be a business dinner. And it must have a wine list, too.

My first thought was, well...I didn't really have a first thought. Any help?

My knowledge of Manhattan is minimal, but we had a great experience at Otto. The wine list is exensive and they offer DOP Napolitan pizza. The bagna cauda we ordered was amazing. http://www.ottopizzeria.com/

I know from going to Luzzo's on Saturday that they take reservations, at least for larger groups, but they don't have much in the way of wine.

I really think Otto (which DanM mentioned) is your best and possibly only option; I think your friend will be hard pressed to find a good place that both has a wine menu AND takes reservations.

Oh yeah, they need to be able to have a conversation...

...I think your friend might be looking for the holy grail of pizza restaurants. :raz:

The problem with 900 Degrees is that it feels like 900 degrees in the restaurant if they seat you in the section by the oven! Also, the rumble of the 1 train below can be a bit distracting. I'm not sure it's nice enough for a business dinner.

What about Peasant or Rubirosa?

I just had a Saturday lunch last week at Adrienne's Pizzabar on Stone Street. Decent pizza, especially the old-fashioned pie, the sides are acceptable, the mark-up on some of the wines is unconscionable...and they take reservations!

It's also on one of the coolest, oldest streets in Manhattan. Quite a zoo after office-hours,too.

If you could get him out to Brooklyn - Frannys is great

From their site:

franny's cannot accommodate parties larger than 6 and does not take reservations. We are a first come, first serve restaurant and parties are seated when completed. franny's is not currently offering private events.

Co. takes reservations.

Good to know! The reservation policy does seem a little limited.

Although we welcome our guests to join us on a walk-in basis, a limited number of reservations are available for parties of six or more prior to 6:30 PM.
