Since our initial review, Caravelli’s has added a lunch special. Every Monday and Wednesday they offer two slices, with toppings and soda, for $7.50. There are non-pizza specials the other days of the week.

There is a nice new casual by-the-slice pizzeria to choose from in Battery Park: Caravelli’s Pizzeria located in World Financial Center by Vesey Street. It is owned by the same group as Ed’s (McFarland) Lobster Bar kiosk outside. The Brookfield Properties people asked them to open Caravelli’s to take over for the evicted Donald Sacks. It is unclear to anyone, even the owners, how long Caravelli’s will remain, but it is safe to assume that it will be in place for the next 12 month, until the renovations to the Winter Garden take place.
We found the pizza to have a nice crispy crust and not be too greasy or floppy. The cheese and toppings seem to be of adequate genuiness, as opposed to some places with mystery cheese and meats. The price is steep, however. At more than $4 for a slice with toppings, and a whopping $2.25 for a can of coke, and no lunch specials, it might annoy many people.
There is also a deli. To place orders, call (212) 323-6920 or email email@example.com
