Few things make our hearts race more than the words "Neapolitan pizza." So it was with great gusto that we arrived at newly opened Ovest, owned by the guy who runs Luzzo's in the East Village. In fact, it was so newly opened that we're fairly certain we were the only people there not friends with the owner or employed by him.
Our arugula salad had apples and pecorino, a winning combination, but we were there for the pie. Like its older sibling, Ovest serves both square and round. Our quadrata bufala had fine flavor with a too-crispy crust, although we had a hard time hearing the crunch over the Michael Jackson throbbing above us. It's not the best pizza in Chelsea, but it's definitely the best pizza on the block.
