Another fine Roman-style pizza from late last year. I’m slowly working through a backlog of photos on my phone. Shortly after I visited PQR, I went to Mani in Pasta.
They both opened around the same time, around spring of 2018. It took me a while to visit, because of my aforementioned lukewarm feelings about Roman-style pizza al taglio, and also because they’re a little outside my free-roaming range for lunch. Blah blah blah.
I’m sorry I waited so long. Mani in Pasta also makes an impressive slice—these here a lot more cheesy and oozy than PQR. Different but about as satisfying.
I visited the Mani in Pasta on 14th Street, which is more of a sit-down, table-service place than a quick grab-and-go slice operation. (There’s also one in Midtown, whose service model I can’t comment on.)
Pictured here: a Margherita slice ($2.75) and a meatball slice ($3.25). I will note that this pricing is a bargain—then again, since it’s table-service, you’ll have to factor in a tip. I’m not sure I love the board as serving platter, but I’ve seen worse.
