Concierge.com's insider take:
Most of the marble-topped tables in this convivial eatery are communal—the better for ogling other diners' wood-fired pizzas before you order. Chef Rita Macali's pies are truly sensational: asymmetrical, crispy-crusted, and slightly charred, with first-rate toppings. Try the meat-and-tomato-heavy Badabing, or the pungent puttanesca with capers and olives. Ladro's loyal following among inner-city hipsters and trendy food lovers makes it hard to get a table, so book a week or more in advance. But if you're craving pizza on the go, opt for takeout. It's usually ready in ten minutes: just enough time to down a microbrewed beer at the bar or in the courtyard.
Dinner only. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
