The pizza at Luca's was fantastic, but I think it had more to do with ambience! The place was so open and inviting, you could just get two slices with a coke and chill out, watch people come in and out of the arcade and theater, and it was just a common place to meet up with friends - underground parking lot, theater entrance, in front of Luca's. Man it was great. I remember seeing "No Retreat No Surrender" with a bunch of friends one night, waiting for our moms to come get us, and wolfin' down pizza.

And it was better than the Arby's next door.

Chelsea's street pub had the high piled nachos, and they were great.
