Pizza in the same vein as Lombardi's, John's but w/ reservations?

janethepain | Dec 30, 201108:29 AM

I know true 00 flour, Neapolitan-style pizza is what everyone wants these days (I enjoy it too), but what if I'm looking for a thicker, hearty (perhaps less authentic, you can argue) experience? For a birthday dinner, I'm trying to find pizza more in the style of Lombardi's, Arturo's or John's of Bleecker St., that sized-for-two experience with satisfyingly cheesy and hearty pizza, BUT that takes reservations (I can only imagine the wait with a party of 8 on a Sat night). Any suggestions?

I have a standing reservation at Forcella, which I definitely want to try, but I'm thinking it might be too dainty and not as "comforting" enough for a big party. I'm definitely not looking for bad pizza - need something great. Thanks for any suggestions!
