No need to go to Brooklyn anymore to have a delicious taste of Roberta's: their outpost at Urbanspace Vanderbilt is superb! Yes, the pizzas are small and a bit pricey, but they are worth it. These small neapolitan pizzas serve one person, allowing people to share a bunch. I love the crust that is crispy on the outside and deliciously charred and they offer a nice selection that can satisfy vegetarian and non-vegetarian patrons. For instance, we tried:
The The Margherita, made with tomato, mozzarella, basil:
The Speckenwolf, made with mozzarella, speck, crimini mushroom, onion, oregano
and black pepper:
The Cheeses Christ, composed of mozzarella, taleggio, parmesan, black pepper and cream:
This was fantastic and I am glad they opened this location in the city. I definitely recommend it if you like pizza, but know that Urbanspace Vanderbilt can be quite busy on Thursdays and Fridays evening, but you can grab and go, eating at the food hall of Grand Central or walk to Bryant Park if the weather permits...
Enjoy (I did)!
