I was wondering if anybody has been to this pizzeria on 38 East 23rd Street

between Park & Madison. I am planning on going but I want to know if it's good.

I've heard it's very good.

I actually wanted to go there on Sunday, but unfortunately I got glutened at brunch so I never made it there. If you go let me know how it is.

Yea so today I went to Mozzarelli's for lunch. It was good, but I think the best part is that they sell it by the slice ( $3. 50, I think). There was no dessert, which was a bummer. I have to say Risottoria is better because there is more of a variety.

LOL!! I was at Risotteria for lunch today.

That is awesome that you can just get a slice, and not expensive either. I mean yeah more than a regular slice, but that certainly isn't bad. How does the pizza compare to Risotteria's?

The pizza is made in a brick oven which made it taste really good. So it was crunchy and chewy just like new york pizza should be. I personally think that Risotteria's pizza is better. Mozzarelli is good for those days when it's just you can you only want one slice.

I love Risotteria but have not been able to bring myself to go back there since they were temporarily shut down by the board of health.

I've went to Mozzarelli's once and found the pizza to be very good. The crust is more like a "normal" pizza than Risotteria's thin-crust, but Risotteria offers much more variety as here they just have the traditional tomato sauce, cheese pizza.

I called Mozzarelli's over the weekend to see if they had any gluten free pizza left and they told me that during the week they now sell a whole variety of gluten free desserts along with the pizza. So, I'll have to stop by and check it out and report back here.

wow - i hadn't heard about this place before. I've been going to risoterria every 2 weeks. i'd love to go more often, but it takes too long to get to and costs too much. this place sounds like it's better on both.

i'll have to check it out

thanks for the heads up!

I love Mozzarelli's. I make it a point to go at least once a week. I actually like the pizza better than the pizza at Rissoteria but I am a big fan of sicilian pizza so I like the thicker crust. I always go during the week. The last time I went they had gluten-free carrot cake (which in hindsight I should have gotten since I love carrot cake) I am probably going again tomorrow so maybe I will check out the desserts then.

It's a good thing you didn't go on Sunday. Apparently they are open Mon-Fri. My husband & I took the bus down from the theater district on Saturday. I was totally psyched for ordering pizza by the slice and totally bummed out that they were CLOSED!. They are in the insurance district and many places don't bother opening on the weekends.

I went tonight for dinner (around 7ish). They didn't have any prepared, so I had to order 2 slices because that was the minimum they could do. But it was a short wait, and it was AWESOME!!! First pizza in 2 years, boo-yah! 2 slices and a drink for about $10. Especially in NYC, I call that reasonable! I told the manager (?) on the way out that the pizza made my day. My only disappointment? I don't get into the city often and I'm moving cross-country next week!

I finally got to Mozzarelli's! My husband and I took Wednesday off to go to the city for a show. After we got our tickets at TKTS we took the bus downtown so I could finally walk into a pizza place and order a slice! Well, I had 2 slices. First, a regular cheese slice, then a veggie slice. I was in gluten-free heaven! They also have a few gluten-free pasta dishes listed that they will make fresh. On the way out I bought some gluten-free biscotti that I noshed on while walking and still had some to take home.

Too bad they are only open Mon-Fri.

LOVE Mozzarelli's!!!!! I went for the 1st time a couple weeks ago, and went back again for lunch last Friday. I think I may make it my ritual Friday lunch.

The first time I had a spinach mushroom slice and a bruschetta slice. Both were wonderful, but the bruschetta slice.... OMG HEAVEN!!!!!! I wanted the same when I went last week, but they were out of the bruschetta :( so I got the spinach mushroom and a sausage slice.

They also have a chocolate cake which is incredible.

    • artificial sweeteners?
      A few weeks ago I ate a quest bar and ended up feeling a bit sick for the rest of the day, and that night I started feeling nauseous and had the chills, shortness of breath, and ended up staying up all night because I just didn't feel well. I thought maybe it was too much fiber or protein, I definitely don't get enough of either (working on it) so I thought perhaps going from barely any to quite a bit could be it. Then I scrapped that idea, thought it was corn. I've heard that corn can cause symptoms similar to gluten.. but I eat other things with corn in them on a regular basis, so nope. Finally, I thought maybe it could be artificial sweeteners. I'm not a big fan and generally try to avoid them so I haven't had them in a while. Well, yesterday I had another quest bar left so I opened it and took the smallest bite in the world.. I mean it was practically a crumb. I also happened to eat a piece of sugar free gum so it could have been either one. But shortly after I started to feel kind of 'off', which turned into the same overall bad feeling that I had last time and I didn't sleep until 7am because of it. The reaction wasn't as bad as last time, but it definitely wasn't pleasant. But whether it was the gum or the bar it seems hard to believe that such a small amount would make me feel that sick.. Though if I had that much gluten I would be dead to the world for days, so maybe not THAT unlikely. However, I then noticed that the antacid that I sometimes take if I get glutened or something has sorbitol in it and I've never felt sick from that. So does it just happen that sorbitol doesn't make me sick but other sweeteners do? Also, I've never liked drinking diet soda because for as long as I can remember it has made my stomach upset. Not like this, but just that 'off' feeling for a couple hours after drinking it. Does anyone else get sick from artificial sweeteners? I'm hoping this is it, otherwise I'm kind of at a loss. I can't think of anything else in those bars that would make me sick and it doesn't seem like a coincidence that I got sick both times I tried eating them. I know it wasn't gluten either because I ate pretty plain things both days, nothing out of the ordinary that would do that. Plus the reaction is different. It's similar to gluten but not the same, with gluten it's (at first) just my stomach and with this like I said it's just a general sick feeling. What do you think? 
    • Mcdonald's French Fries
      Great discussion! These are my take-aways in researching this site and several others (not just for McD's but other items like beer & wine for a friend who crafts his own, but I am very sensitive +other digestive issues) 1. Cross contamination is always a possibility so be aware, be prepared & be safe. 2. Gov't regs regarding gluten-free claims are not great. Plus they deal in Parts Per Million (ppm) so as long as it is below the threshold, it can claim gluten-free. Your allergy & my sensitivity will be triggered at different levels, so we may react to to something that is less than 0.001ppm & is labeled as gluten-free. 3. Some cooking/processing procedures can destroy the offending allergen  (this case, gluten). I got this from 2 sources. One when I was trying to learn about gluten-free alcohol products. The other from a friend whose daughter is severely allergic to peanuts, coconut & a few other items. She spoke to the Allergist about a food item her daughter was exposed to but did not react as expected (thankfully!). After looking into it, the doctor explained that even though the allergen is listed, it may not have been the part of the food that she is allergic to (I know I am explaining this poorly, sorry) &/or the processing of the ingredient can alter it on a molecular level so as to not cause a reaction. Apparently the opposite is true: processing changes can cause us to react to things we otherwise wouldn't. 4. I don't find McD's to be greasy (you should see how I cook!). But it is so full of chemicals it's no wonder humans don't process it well. 5. COOK :-D   Certainly, I am not an expert & I know I probably didn't interpret everything correctly. So, if you have more info to help correct my "take-aways", it would be welcomed. Thank you!
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?

    • Is Jello O.k. To Eat?
      jello is fine.  maybe you are sensitive to something else.  
    • Smoothie King
      I have had one or two and was fine.  I don't have an issue with dairy.  If I remember right, most smoothies are gluten-free.
