It's kind of a like a hospital cafeteria in terms of ambience. Odd mixture of things sold here, burgers, pizzas, and cup cakes. The food is hit and miss. Cheese fries are amazing though cheese is salty, lemon fizz drink is excellent, pizzas are kind of tasteless. Service is plain odd. Ate here with three colleagues, and asked for knives and forks for the table. Was given one. When our pizzas came, we were given two extra paper plates so we could share. The waiter also brought us the wrong order initially. Wait staff don't seem to have a clue what's going on here.

Working in the area has allowed me to discover this lil treasure. The shame of it is that more people don't know about it. I have never bored of the menu as it constantly changes from season to season. There are always my favorites that come back with each season for me to look forward to. The place is a bit small and usually flooded with hungry (and often cranky) fans of the eatery at lunch. I recommend going early and taking advantage of the great help of these dedicated employees. The help here has always been gracious and helpful to me. The clientele is very challenging and demanding (not to mention hungry) and I have watched the service be carried out with grace and ease. OH! The desserts are beyond. My biggest trouble is picking only one. Biggest Fan!

It's a shame that this place has such amazing pizza (rivaling Grimaldi's & easily surpassing Lombardi's) so I would LOVE to go there more often especially since I work in the area, but the service during lunch time is SO POOR I just can't make it a regular venue. There is usually only one waitress who would not know the definition of service if it smacked her in the face. She is rude and even if you are the only table in the place you have to ask her to serve you, ask for your condiments, ask for napkins, ask for silverware, and wait 45 minutes for your sodas. The place is always a mess, very shabby interior which is not what I would expect from a respected name like Mitchel London--this place could easily let him lose his reputation unless he hires a competent manager to whip the place into shape. The front door has been broken for over six months and I don't know if they ever plan on fixing it--it horribly scrapes the concrete creating such a loud disturbing sound you can't enjoy your food. Plus it sticks and will not close fully so if you are sitting there in the winter you get blasted with cold air and since there is basically ZERO level of service you have to get up and close it yourself. I would understand if it just broke but it's been like that for months. Seriously, how expensive is it to fix a door? It leaves a very bad impression and makes me wonder what other corners they are cutting. This business is run like a place just sraping to get by. Quite frankly it's embarrasing. I have found better service and atmosphere at my corner deli.

I like the pizza allot. But I hate going there & would go much more often, but it takes 5-10 minutes to pay. They have no cash register inside and have to use the next dorr cash register. This is absurd in NYC and much more absurd in midtown during lunch. I have limited time to eat as many New Yorkers do & this just makes it a hassle. I hope the owner is reading, because I know allot of co-workers feel the same & have not eaten there as much because of it.

After years of searching, I've finally found the best pizza in the city! The Marinara, with garlic and peppers is amazing. Service can be iffy, and so can the delivery, but the pizza is amazing. Went to Co. last night and it couldn't hold a candle to this place. Wonder why New York Mag overlooked them in their Best Pizza article? Extra added attraction- the pizza maker has a prison teardrop tattoo under his eye!

I live on 42nd, I am on the look out for great food. The pizza looks great and tastes good . Definitely high quality pizza like Lombardi's grimaldi's etc... My concerns they take too long to make delvieries ...sometimes more than 1 hr. Service is slow...they have to go next door everytime someone pays.they need change everytime someone pays for a slice pizza They dont do volume so you dont know how fresh the slices are. Frequently the slices are reheated on the cold side. Poorly organized no menus for patrons to take out...a shame. They are a hassle to deal with. They frequently leave you on hold.

I work right by this place and any office building inhabitant of 10th avenue knows that a half hour lunch is nearly an impossible feat when it requires leaving your office building. Therefore, my co-workers and I live for take-out. I was introduced to this simple pizzeria when I smelled its deliciousness wafting through our open air office. I'm not a big fan of pizza or anything fatty but a slice of this pizza changed my world! I am a huge fan of the provencal but I've heard good things about the prosciutto/arugula pizza as well. They use good quality ingredients and the only reason I didn't give a perfect score to the value and food category is due to the inconsistency of their olive-giving and crust making. On occasion I've gotten a mound of olives on my pizza (my fave), and on others I get one or two. Once I even got two WHOLE olives just rolling around inside my pizza box. Weird. Regardless, I highly recommend this to anyone, just be prepared to order lunch early because they do tend to get busy and delivery might take awhile. Yum.
