The original & the best. The greatness of the pizza is the simplicity of it. A few ingredients and the coal fired oven. If you want original authentic neopolitian style pizza then this is the only choice in little italy or NYC for that matter. There's a reason they've been going strong for over 100 years. Quick service, low prices, & absolutely delicious pizza. If coming to New York make it a must do.

I'm in North Jersey and have access to tons of great pizza parlors. However we find ourselves traveling into the city for their delicious pies.

Visited last week for lunch, there were 4 of us and we ordered 2 x 16" pizzas, one with meatballs Peppers and the other with Spinach and Pepperoni. The pizzas arrived within about 10 minutes and were delicious! They were thin and light with a yummy crispy crust. Both toppings were delicious, just the perfect amount of Pizza :)

I am a native new yorker so I've have pretty much everything. It is a pretty darn good pizza. The flavoring is good. The toppings are fresh. The price is not for the budget minded, its quite expensive. Then again pizza by the slice is no longer $1.25 :) more like $2.50-$3 these days. I would compare this with Patsy's in Harlem and Grimaldi's / DiFara's in Brooklyn. That said.. DO NOT under any circumstances get this to go. It is disappointing (this rule applies to all pizzas BTW). Something happens to pizza when it is put in a box and is left to sit for 10-15 minutes (more so the case with brick oven/coal fire). We spent about 100 bucks for 4-5 pies to go and it was the worst money spent. Do yourself a favor and eat there in person.

Without a doubt the best pizza in NYC. Always cooked to perfection and always superb service. An absolute must if visiting.

There are many pizza joints in the city but this is one real gem that tourists and locals flock to simply because the pizzas are so addictive!

Our night started with waiting almost 40 minutes after we were told it would be 25, and have to put our name on their list three times after they crossed us off twice without calling us. Then our waitress comes up to us and asks "did ya decide?" Not "Hi or Hello are you ready to order"... we order our pizza with pepperoni, and we did get our pizza pretty quick, but we were extremely disappointed in the lack of toppings we got for the $3 charge. The pizza did taste pretty good, but the crust was crisp and the rest was still slightly doughy. As my family owns a pizza shop with a brick oven, I would say, cool your oven a little bit and cook it longer so your customers aren't eating raw dough. Our server only asked us how things were when we were done with the pizza and our drinks, didn't ask us if we wanted anything else, at this point we didn't, except for our check. We pay, and she gives us the wrong change, thankfully it was in our favor. So the net $0.75 tip that we left (the lowest tip I've ever left) was far too much, for the lack of service that we received from her. Doubt I'll ever go back, I'm glad I had better pizza, so I didn't totally give up on pizza in NYC.
