When Lucali is closed and you must have some pizza, Francesca’s is probably the nearest choice. A comfortable local pizzeria Henry Street in Brooklyn, the slices here are a little better than average for Brooklyn. But average in Brooklyn is better than pretty much the rest of the world.

Plain slices ($2.50) are the same price as Fascati, a more popular spot a mile down the road, but where the pizza at Fascati’s is thin and tart, these are thicker, sweeter slices. There is an ample amount of cheese and the crust has a nice chewiness to it. The sauce could use work, but all-in-all this joint shouldn’t go anywhere.

Francesca’s is worth ordering in or stopping by. If we lived in the neighborhood we’d probably have tried everything on the menu.
