At San Matteo Pizzeria e Cucina located in the Upper East Side of New York City, guests enjoy authentic Neapolitan pizzas, panuozzi and other Italian favorites. Panuozzi, which is made with charred pizza dough that is folded over and stuffed with tasty ingredients, is growing in popularity, especially in the New York City pizzeria scene. San Matteo Pizzeria e Cucina has mastered this unique dish with its selection of panuozzi. Because San Matteo Pizzeria e Cucina is open until 11 p.m., it is a suitable place for late-night meals with family or friends. Sip on a glass of red or white wine while partaking in popular menu items like the pancetta panuozzo, which features dry-cured pancetta, provolone cheese, black pepper and artichokes, and the Diavola pizza, which is topped with fresh basil, homemade mozzarella, spicy soppressata and parmigiano reggiano.

Recommended by an Italian contact, and went for a casual dinner with an Italian colleague. Very well recommended. Excellent mozzarella. Great pizzas. Would recommend. Went on a Monday, and could see would be very busy later in the week - worth booking ahead.

We have our favs which include the classic Margharita and their Mariconda with Pancetta. Our favorite whites are the tartufata with truffle paste and prosciutto di parma. Their arugula salad is yummy .. only a few ingredients but full of flavor. We also love the parmigiana Di Melenzane perfect mix of salt and sweet the eggplant just melts in your mouth. Not much on the decor end it is a basic pizza place with a bar but it's brick lined walls and visible oven make it cozy and feel like home. Just an all around neighborhood gem!

It’s a small corner spot with pleasant and professional staff. We shared a pizza special—white with burrata, tomatoes and prosciutto. It was very flavorful. The thin crust was very nicely cooked just a slight char. They seem to use high quality meats. The gentleman at the next table was a regular who had their hamburger for the first time. He loved it. Plenty of white and red pizza options and some other inventive dishes. A very good value.

For thin crust pizza, theirs is the best. Also had the pasta with pesto, zucchini, mushrooms, ricotta and pesto baked in foil - delicious. It was cold sitting by window, and food got cold quickly; hence the drop in score. Next time I go if it is cold outside I will ask for a high top inside!
