    Food was okay, but not a near as good as expected. Service was awful. Was only waited on once and had to wait almost 1 hr to get someone’s attention to bring us a check. Save the time and go to Joe’s! Better pizza, better service!

    One of the best pies in NYC, get the original and you can’t go wrong. Super crispy, amazing flavor, wonderful ambiance and the pizza is great. Fresh mozz pie is great too!

    the food was ok, meatballs were very good and the sauces was too. . the rice ball was burnt on the bottom and had to saw it in half. the pizza wasn't really seasoned well. there were the trays of seasonings and spices on other tables but not offered to us. prices are very good. beer and wine reasonable prices.

    We really enjoyed our meal. We were seated immediately and the server was very attentive. The place is small but the overall look is still pretty fun. We had the tortellini brodo which was delicious, the antipasto salad which was also very good, a plain pizza that was surprisingly flavorful and the chicken Parm which had nice flavor but the texture of the chicken could have been much crispier. Overall, a very good place and much more affordable than most NYC restaurants that you can sit down in.

    Food was great and atmosphere was pretty neat. Servers weren’t overly friendly - but good enough. Could have used some music or something as there were points of eerie silence in the background of our conversation. Came here because of Barstool review and pizza was very good.

    Bar stool fans and wanted to try a 9.3 rated pizza. Too bad it was tasted more like a 7.3. Pre-theater on a wed night. 4 tables occupied, most were eating or waiting for server to bring them there check. We sat down little after 6 for 6 pm res. We looked at menu at ordered a regular cheese pizza and 1 ice tea and 1 water at 6.25 pm. Other guests started to arrive and placed orders after us. After 20 mins and the other people’s food was coming out, we stopped our waiter and asked how much longer? He gave us a very un hospitable look as though we just ordered 5 mins ago. Then we waited until 6:57 (30+ mins after ordering) for our 1 pizza to come out. Meanwhile other tables got there pizzas and entrees second later. The pizza looked good and was burning hot, however, the pizza has very little flavor. We kept on adding spices and seasoning to get it to taste better. What a disappointment and the place is a hole in the wall and doesn’t even have a rating from the board of health yet. Will not be going back.
