For those that have not been here yet, Lombardo's is known for their pizza.
Very important tip: When you're here, ONLY order their pizza!!! You'll be glad I told you that. Again, I'm very big on specialization i.e. if you go to The Keg, you should order steak as that is what they specialize in...I have at times broken my rule i.e. ordering Fajitas at The Keg...but I was willing to take that risk and I was actually quite impressed with that dish. But be warned, when you go to Lomardo's, go for the pizza. I would not recommend ordering the pasta.

My buddy that I went here with swears that Lombardo's serves the best pizza in the city. And this is coming from a guy that stayed in New York for a couple years. He had the ProFunghi while I had the Funghi. Essentially they're both the same except for the fact that the ProFunghi comes with Prosciutto.

I thought the pizza was pretty good. My buddy says it's good because it has a thin crust and is very crispy. I'm not a big fan of super crispy crust. A good example of a great pizza that doesn't have super crispy crust but is still delicious is Pizza Hut's Pan Pizzas. Anyways, I think the pizza at Lombardo's is good because of the cheese they use.

If you haven't been here, I recommend trying it out. Not my favorite pizza joint, but pretty close.

Tip: If you're a vegetarian, you can order the Funghi as it contains no meat.

Well, nope! Mushroom, as you mentioned, is a fungi and, in the biological taxonomy, it is in its own kingdown, separate from plants. So, they are not vegetables!
