NYC: Keste Pizza & Vino; restaurant review

Keste Pizza & Vino  271 Bleecker St./Morton, (212) 243-1500.  L-D daily; $$. 

The menu in this acclaimed pizzeria is simple--pizzas, calzones, panini, and salads—that’s it.  Order up a Toscana salad with fresh pear and walnuts, along with a spectacular thin-crust pizza Margherita topped with housemade water-buffalo mozzarella, shredded basil, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.  Or maybe you prefer a calzone stuffed with mushrooms and a mix of cheeses that includes the fresh mozzarella.  Gluten free is an option among the forty traditional and contemporary Neapolitan-style pies.  The traditional techniques of Neapolitan pizzaiolos are followed here, including cooking in a wood-fired oven, and ingredients are authentic—perhaps explaining why everything is so tasty and the line to get in is so long.
