Tribeca can feel desolate at times, which is why Saluggi’s is so welcome. This is more than your average pizza – and not because they have wait staff. Saluggi’s is going for the more expensive style slice, along the lines of Artichoke and South Brooklyn.

Slices at Saluggi’s($3) are large. Our favorite part was the cheese, smooth with a great consistency that is cut to just the right thickness. The sauce was heavy on the olive oil and other spices and didn’t taste enough like ripe tomatoes. The crust holds up well and the aftertaste is more semolina than sourdough. They don’t bother with the basil – at least when we were there. Other items like the meatball sub sounded good – except who calls heroes subs in the Big Apple?

Overall, the pizza at Saluggi’s is very good, but we found that it looks better than it tastes. However, this is a far better place than most and we think they’ll only get better.
