I agree - they vary quite a bit. I've had it on a few occasions and while I think it's a great pie, this does not fit the textbook definition of "neapolitan" to me. These are not 50 second pies.

That being said the ingredient quality is fantastic - especially the tomatoes. I don't know who makes them

I would not have guessed that all the pies in this thread came from the same pizzeria.

Dont remember adding to this thread or not...I had an enjoyable visit about 8 months ago. The pizzas I timed were averaging just over 2 minutes.

It may not be "Neapolitan" but out of about 45 pizza shops that I have been to in NYC it's my personal favorite. And that's not to say many of the others are really good too.

Interesting, because what I had was certainly Neapolitan. Springy, pooly and clean.
I would liken it to some in Naples I have had, particularly Da Matteo.

I only was there once, with Hans, and I loved it. The 2 minutes seems about on the mark to me...it did have a light crispness along with tenderness, and the flavor was more complex than I expected. Terrific!

Just saw they got a new Acunto oven installed. I'd be curious to see what the impact of the new oven is on their pizza.

It's on odd time Jon, we've stayed in nyc the last two weekends, have wanted to get to various pizza places including SeN but obviously don't want to hop on the subway. In our neighborhood, Mama's and carmines & sals have re-opened for takeout, so that's been enough for now.

If you can get to Mama's Too on a Wednesday, it looks like they are putting out some amazing sandwiches.

These are definitely crazy times. I haven't been close to NYC since the February school break. Stay well.

I walked by Song E Napule on Friday and they had 6 tables set up outside and only 2 were taken. I had had a great Sicilian slice earlier at Ben's on Spring Street but I decided to sit down and have a pie.

 It was a nice pie, great ingredients and nice dough. Actually a bit underdone on one side, but mostly well-baked.  It was also more substantial than I thought it would be. The chili oil was very nice as well.

Neapolitan is not my favorite style and I'm rarely blown away by one.  This didn't blow me away like Razza, probably my favorite wood-fired pie right now.

It was lunch special of $11.99 which is a great price.  I took some meatballs to go as well for $11.99 and they were really good.

I like Song, but I prefer Razza as well Andrew.   Im not sure I have had a better wood fired pizza than what I had at Razza last summer. 

Song might have better cheese with that Agerola fiordilatte, but the crust at Razza is truly something special with so much depth of flavor and crisp/fluffy.  Song is exactly like what I remember from being in Naples...very simple, clean, and fresh tasting.  Im sure that there are people that prefer a classic Neapolitan and would prefer Song, especially if you are from Naples.

You guys are so lucky in NY to have all of those great choices.  Im also a fan of a Bens!

I really like them both! They are two very different pizza's.

If you haven't already seen this, it's worth a watch:

Sure, Razza is its own thing, not Neapolitan at all. Always hard to compare different styles. I kinda put wood-fired in one main category hence the comparison.

Great video, I hadn't seen it!
