We met some friends here for dinner. The place was lively on a weekend night, but the noise level not overwhelming for conversation. We wanted leftovers, so the four of us ordered two pizzas. (You can also order a "wedge" for $12, which our waitress told us is about 2 1/2 slices) We shared a Margherita and also the Artichoke. The Margherita was nicely charred, with a good crust, not as crisp as a pizza in Italy, but definitively better than the average US pizza. We enjoyed it. The Artichoke was covered in a cream sauce under the artichokes, so was very heavy. It was tasty, but not something I'd order again.

Good option close to the High Line for inexpensive, good pizza. There's a dance club next door, so it's amusing to see people pouring out of cabs in their club wear.
