Tresanti is a welcome addition to the NYC gourmet pizza scene. We’ll be back for more pizza, as well as to try other items from their menu, including pappardelle with shrimp, lasagna and other simple Italian dishes. Located in western SOHO, Tresanti’s spacious setting is broken into a number of sections, including a sunken area in the middle, and a large bar that we hope will see plenty of traffic.

Tresanti’s fresh mozzarella was our favorite part of the Margherita pie ($12) – soft, smooth and bursting with flavor. It fell off the pizza a little too easily, but eating it from the plate didn’t bother us at all. The sauce is nice and subtle. You can even bring a bottle or two home with you. The crust was our biggest complaint as it was too soft and chewy with no puffiness or crunch. Other pies include pesto, vongole, arugula, cured salami and other gourmet pizza fare. Overall Tresanti’s pizza is very good but could use a little more tweaking before it is truly amazing.

Tresanti opens at noon on weekends and they also serve brunch. The staff is great and we loved that on the quiet Saturday afternoon we ate here, they played music like Pink Floyd and The Kinks. Now what’s better than that?
