"Ovest Pizzoteca is West Chelsea’s destination for Luzzo’s Naples-style dining and enoteca selection of Italian wines, and delicious cocktails. Wood and brick oven pizza, homemade pasta and authentic panini are crafted with owner and executive pizzaiolo Michele Iuliano's masterful dough recipe.
Sitting beneath the highline along reemerging W 27th Street, the industrial brick walls and high ceilings house the after-work aperitivo (Italian “happy hour”) packed daily with the neighboring gallery district art and fashion set.

We each ordered a glass of red wine to start. Then we ordered two of Izzy’s to split, the diavola and the brutta di buona. Very good, really fast service, wasn’t a huge fan of the music choice for later on a Tuesday but all in all a great experience!
Intimate with rustic romantic Italian vibe, ovest makes a great spot for girlfriends who want to catch up or date night.
We ordered eggplant parmigiana antipasto, pizza, and gnocchi. They customized the gnocchi bc we didn't want the sauce they had that day.
Wine selection fares well both by glass and by bottle. You can't go wrong with the supertuscans, though I wish the primativo had been available.
The staff was friendly and let us stay in, away from the rain, while we waited for the car.
