Lucali is a Tourist Trap.

Tonight I went to Lucali in Bk and was really disappointed. Not only was it expensive but it really didn't taste very good and had little to no substance. I cant understand how this place is ranked so high, the pizza itself tasted generic and as I said earlier, it was so thin and had so little cheese that i felt ripped off. I ate 4 of the 8 slices and was still hungry afterwards. I could have knocked out a whole pie, easily and still would have been hungry

We ended up going to another pizza shop, to fill ourselves on the way home.

I give this place 1 of 5 stars. I feel one can get better pizza at 99% of the shops around the city. I feel this place is simply a tourist trap. I am also really starting to question the recommendations on chowhound, from this place to Katz deli. Ive been recommended places and they always end up being worse and more expensive than what I am used to.
