I was so glad to find out that they finally delivered. I live pretty close to artichoke but I could never see standing in line for a half hour for pizza. I guess that explains some of the bad reviews the place gets. The bad reviews are probably written by a lot of drunks who don't remember the taste of the pizza but do remember standing in line. I'm sure that annoys enough people to give bad reviews. It's really unwarranted the pizza is pretty good. It's not the best pizza but it is a damn good. I remember when I was 11 years old I used to get pizza along with a cup of Coke in a little wax cup, the pizza tasted so good. For some reason I never been able to find pizza like I did when I was 11 years old. This comes close to it.

I work in Long Island City and sneak out to Artichoke sometimes. I like the white slice. If you want to impress someone with pizza, go here.

I was out with a group of friends at a jazz club. After the second set, we were all hungry and someone suggested Artichoke. I'd read about it and was initially very excited. That disipated as soon as I entered. I am a pizza purist and the moment I saw the menu, I knew Artichoke was not about serving pizza, but catering to "foodies" who will pay twice as much for a low quality product if it makes them feel like an epicure. I cannot speak for the pizza's flavor, as the moment my friends' crab slices were served, I felt nauseated by the borderline-putrid odor. One friend, also a newcomer, actually dropped his in the street. Additionally, most of the patrons were drunk to varying degrees, which to me, is a red flag of how the food actually tastes. Overhyped and I doubt it will last once a new gourmet pizza fad comes along.

Sorry to those who want to complain because its not $1.50 worth of rubber cheese and cardboard bread. This place uses great ingredients and makes delicious pizzas that stand out and rise above the crappy slice joints. Yeah that costs a little more but its worth it. There is a reason they have lines out the door all day and night.

I have eaten a lot of pizza in my life and this is just gross. It bring to mind the olive garden commercial for pasta in a bread bowl. Totally misguided, tacky, inauthentic cooking. It's literally like someone poured alfredo sauce and artichokes on a puffy tasteless crust. Maybe if you did grow up on olive garden and you now attend NYU AND you are really drunk, you think this is good? Get thee to Lombardi's or Grimaldi's for good old school pizza, Motorino or Co. for new school. Develop your taste buds, people. BTW, I'm happy, like most new yorkers to wait on a long line and deal with gruff service if the product is great.
