It's freezing in Manhattan and what could be better than discovering a great gourmet pizza to eat while you watch the Olympics?  This is our first experience at Pizza 33, and based on the amazing taste of the pizza, it will not be our last.  Fresh ingredients, premium crust, and a winning attitude by this father and son team make Pizza 33 a must on your pizza to-eat list in Manhattan.  Also, there is no absence of humor: as you see from the menu they are located on 33rd and 3rd, however they phrase it more artfully above. Pizza 33 has been open since 2000 and when you meet Emilio Rino Lacerra (the dad) of the Almalfi Coast, he'll regale you with all this entrepreneurial adventures.
Though there is a different mayor now in office here, the angel named Bloomberg that sits on Peachy's shoulder when she orders has remained constant.  We always order a green salad and the House Salad is just perfect.  Dressing was on the side as asked for, and it was fresh and delicious.  Salad is the perfect compliment to pizza.

There is a long list of thin crust pizzas that sound delectable, and Peachy Deegan decided on the Il Giardino: fresh mozzarella imported from Italy, basil, artichoke, broccoli, onions and mushrooms.  She added pepperoni and garlic to the mix and it proved to be absolutely fantastic.  She even ate a piece for breakfast the next day, it was that convincing.
 Here is its closeup; it's smiling at you!
There is not an appetizer menu per se at Pizza 33 so we opted for a Chicken Parm Grinder.  In New York people call them heroes, in other places hoagies.  You know what we're talking about: sandwich.  Every bite of chicken was delicious and combined with that spectacular sauce and cheese, it was a total winner.
Pizza 33 is Terrific Takeout!
