Anyway You Slice It
136-55 Roosevelt Avenue
9 (cheese) + 9 (sauce) + 10 (crust) = 9.3
The sign outside Lucia boasts “Best Pizza in Town.” If the town they are referring to is Flushing – or anywhere that’s not Howard Beach – this statement is unequivocally true. Lucia is a classic counter-serve place that probably violates a dozen fire codes if there are five people eating in there. It’s certainly worth that risk. The crust is king here and it’s hard to do it much better than Lucia does. It’s got a perfect crisp to it, and the chefs here have it down to a science. The cheese also gives you some resistance when you bite in, which is always a good thing. It’s not liquid-y and thin like a lot of city pizza tends to be. The sauce to cheese ratio splendid, making every bite a near perfect mash of flavors.
