Lucali’s has won a lot of fans with its well-crafted brick-oven pizza; it turns out a calzone that’s just as good. A long rectangular crust, baked to a nice exterior char. Cut into it and you get a beautiful ooze of top-quality ricotta—worlds apart from the greasy glop you get in your average calzone, observes surly. Steve R, who recently sampled Lucali’s calzone and pizza side by side, admits he’s hard pressed to choose one over the other.
