Carmine's II Pizzeria

Terrific pizza and super friendly service. This place is my go to for lunch (or dinner). I stop in for a hot slice several times a week. They make all the classic flavors as well as some unique creations, my favorite slice is the Philly Cheese Steak, it has tons of fresh jalapeno slices on it, so order it at your own risk. All their pizzas are very generous in size and several are super loaded with topping so one slice is more than enough. In the summer they have a lovely outdoor backyard seating area, complete with a 70 year old grape vine that grows along a trellis overhead. In the late summer you can pick the grapes off the vine and they are delicious, how cool is that! This place is way more than just a take out pizza shop, so the next time you have more than five minutes to eat be sure to try a few of their classic offerings from their menu. They have delicious pastas, an amazing chicken parmesan, and I hear their pork chops are crazy good. Oh and they have fresh cannolis that are as good as Veniero's in the East Village.

This place is always at the top of my favorite delivery joints. Never go wrong by ordering the Hawaiian pizza or pasta alla Karen. Delivery time could improve.

We have been trying to find a good place to order from.... we have it! Rated: The Ravioli alla Vodka (5.0) was delicious, Chicken Parm omg the cheese was sooo good(5.0) and Hot Wings [13 pieces more than anywhere else we didnt like the blue cheese, but chicken was okay] (3.0) unfortunately expectation feel short with the Canoli (0.0). For food this place excellent and deliver was less than 40 mins. Excellent!

At this point, I don't even care what the food tastes like. They said it would take 30 minutes and it took over an hour. When we finally called to check where it was, no explanation, just that it would be delivered shortly.

I work in the neighborhood, and there are plenty of great pizza spots to order from; but this is my go to place. I almost always order the same thing (personal size eggplant pie no ricotta) and at this point the super friendly phone staff finishes my order for me. The pie is delicious, incredibly filling and a great value. I love eggplant pie and so many places give you greasy, seed filled pieces but these are perfectly crisp and flavorful. I've also tried their plain and grandma pies and those were both great as well! The price is great, the delivery is always really prompt, and the staff is very friendly. It also is the only food that helps knockout my hangovers EVERY TIME. Which is pretty invaluable when you need to be at work after a weekend of long nights. I also work with a lot of out of towners looking for good "brooklyn pizza" and I send them here all the time. Love this place.

I'm a lifelong Brooklyn resident and grew up as a pizza hound in one of Brooklyn's best pizza neighborhoods. Carmine's II, the offshoot of the busy Graham Avenue place, is a very good rendition of quality Brooklyn pizza among the top pizzerias in Williamsburg/Greenpoint. (I have three favorite slice joints in Greenpoint/Williamsburg and Carmine's is tied for first) The standard pizza has a good crisp crust and is cooked through, which is a detail most pizzerias miss. Their pizza is consistently good, consistency being a problem with most slice joints. The sauce and cheese are on point. Carmines hits that trinity where crust, sauce and cheese all work together. They offer a ton of specialty pizzas and their version of the Buffalo Chicken Pizza is good. Make sure they cook/reheat it for a good long time though. I had a meatball parm hero the other day and it was excellent among the best I have had.
