Artichoke's sicilian slice is one of the best out there. The artichoke slice is enough for two very hungry people and will make you feel like you need to go for a run after (it's heavy on cream and cheese). There is usually a line and they only do take out, no delivery.
Margarita and espcially sicilian slices are excellent. Sauce, olive oil, cheese, and crust are top notch. I enjoy the artichoke slice also, but it is a bit rich and cheesy. The slices are expensive, but worth it once in a while as there is so much bad pizza in NYC. There is no place to eat your slice. You have to stand next to people waiting to order or park yourself next to the garbage can. Unfortunately, the place is rather dirty. You have to close your eyes and pretend that the area where they prepare and cook the pizza does not exist. Really, what does it take to clear out the clutter, dust, and mess hall confusion? If they don't clean up their act, they are going to lose customers...well, me anyway.

whya re you recommending a palce for cheese pizza in east harlem? of course it's cheap - it's ina different area and it doesnt have the expensive ingredient. idiot. as for this place - the service is surly at best, and they account for most of the line BUT once in a while it's really worth it. stick witht he artichoke slice ($4 aint cheap but it's not much worse than $3 for a regular slice that is smaller and less filling at a differnt place). I tried the crab slice once - no no no. It just tasty like soggy cardboard covered in old bay seasoning. Icks.

I love the artiochoke pizza and will stop in and get a slice once a week or so. It's delicious and a good value at $4 a slice because the slice is very arge and filling. Unfortunately the set up of the place is not great. That's what causes the line NOT that there are so many people clamouring for the pizza. Since I live right near there it's not a problem for me but there are no tables in there, it's strictly buy and fly, or eat on the street.

I have only tried the artichoke slice, which is very good (albeit not too healthy), but almost choked (no pun intended) when they asked for $5.50! I haven't tried the sicilian yet, but at least it seems from the reviews to be better priced. My husband had the margarita and was not impressed. If you want real authentic cheese pizza, nothing tops Pete's on 117th Street & First Avenue in Harlem. They have a real coal oven and an entire pie is only $11 bucks!

Don't expect to sit down, just grab a slice/pie and go. Probably one of the better, if not the best, pizzas by the slice. However, there are better pizzas (such as Una Pizza) - the lines are usually long, but the slices are very, very, good. Good value for the money prefer thin crust, but this pizza is worth the calories (even if it is a heavier slice).

if there is one place i bring every visiting friend and family member to NY, its artichoke...absolutely, hands down, the best pizza ive ever eaten! the artichoke slice is wonderful, kind of like spinach artichoke dip on pizza, very rich, but not sickening but do yourself a favor and get the sicilian slice, its cheaper, $3.50, and has the most unique crust ive ever had, a friend described it best as the "short bread cookie of pizza crusts" as it is butter and crunchy, but still a little soft and chewy, and with a fantastic tomato sauce, basil, and two kinds of cheese, its simply AMAZING!
