I felt compelled to write a review after reading the ones that were here. This is not a fancy brick oven pizza joint. There is no waiter or fancy decor. This is a REAL old school neighborhood pizzeria. I've been eating here since I'm a kid. Now I take my kids here. It def is my favorite in the hood. They make awesome heroes as well as standard Italian dishes. The steak sandwich is to die for. I get the stracciatella soup for the kids at least twice a week. It has pasta with spinach and egg, and they eat every last drop without a fight. Very healthy! The cappuccino and espresso are also perfection. No this is not a place for a romantic dinner. You either drop by for a quick slice or just get delivery. You won't be dissapointed.

I must admit I don't understand the negative reviews of this place... Especially the one below talking about employees not wearing rubber gloves and how "it looks like an old coffee shop" (uh, tourist, welcome to how a New York style pizza joint should look, bare hands and all. I hear they wear rubber gloves at Papa Johns...nation wide). This place is the real deal and the slices are good. I admit I prefer to go to Motorino as I love brick oven pizza, but if I want some slices delivered (which the precious and honestly over-appreciated Carmines/Carmines ll does not do), I want to support a local business that really knows how it's done.

The food here is mediocre at best. The pizza is average and the sauce is very salty. I had probably the worst eggplant parmigian hero in my life at this place, and I've eaten a lot of them, would never order that again. The place looks like an old coffee shop and seems pretty dirty. The guys handling the pizza are always barehanded and they handle money and food without washing hands, let alone gloves. If you're extremely hungry and need pizza and can't walk a block to Sal's or a few blocks to Carmine's (best in the hood), I suppose it would do.

I live so close to this place that it kills me that its not any better than it is. The pizza is the same grease-filled crap that you can find in any typical NYC pizza joint. If you like this place, then must you surely rave about the 1,000 other mediocre pizza places in NYC too. The staff couldn't care less and the price didn't make it a deal. You can do better.

I think this is the perfect NYC style pizza. No camparison the other who cater to trust fund babies in Williamsburg. Hold the tufu and give me a real slice of good pizza. Heller as madea would say.

I had the sicilian pizza the first time I tried it, and it was pretty doughy. However it tasted pretty awesome the next day when we reheated the food in the toaster oven. I'm all about the neo pizza though - yum. Ok speed on delivery, not as fast as some of the chinese places around here, but good overall.

I'm a true Brooklyn girl and this is definitely true brooklyn pizza. Definitely the best damn slice you can get in this area, believe me - I've tried it all. Pizza is great here, but also their heros are awesome as well as the grilled chicken salad.
