Artichoke Basille’s Pizza
Lonely Planet review for Artichoke Basille’s Pizza
Some say this pizzeria is in the East Village, others Union Sq but, hey, wherever Artichoke Basille’s is, count yourself lucky to be there. Run by two Italian guys from Staten Island, the pizza here is authentic, tangy and piled high with all sorts of toppings. The signature pie is a rich, cheesy treat with artichokes and spinach; the plain Sicilian is thinner, with emphasis solely on the crisp crust and savory sauce. Hours are from around noon to about midnight, but sometimes it doesn’t open until 3pm. Lines usually form fast.
