Pizzeria
Denino’s Pizzeria is a landmark in New York, with our award winning, thin-crust pizza.

We originally opened in 1937 as a full tavern on Richmond Avenue, Staten Island until Carlo Denino introduced Pizza in 1951. Since then, Denino’s Pizzeria and Tavern has been renowned for our pizza pie and Italian dinner platters, which we always prepare fresh daily. We use our family’s recipes for Chicken Parmigiana, Meatballs and Sausage and over the years we’ve added our own version of tavern favorites like Wings, Scungilli and Hero Sandwiches.
Everything is always made from scratch, never frozen, and cooked to order.

Whenever New Yorkers come home, they come home to Denino’s Pizzeria
for thin crust, crispy, Cheesy Pizza piping hot right out of the oven.

When you visit a Denino’s Restaurant you are sharing in a part of our
legacy and family tradition that started nearly 8 decades ago.

We were able to make a last minute reservation for a larger party the day of and were so thrilled with the food, service, and ambiance. We were not rushed at all and were comfortable in the space. It was also great to be able to hear everyone at the table, as the restaurant is not noisy at all, even on a Saturday night.

Everything was delicious! We started with drinks- best old fashioned we had on our trip to New York. Arancini was amazing, had a half clam/half prosciutto pizza and it was great! Crust was awesome. Service was great and staff was friendly.

There was an unusual sour smell upon entering the restaurant.

The pizza also had an unusual taste. Not pleasant at all.

Very disappointing.

Caesar salad was great. Calamari was very bland and flavourless. The pizza crust was good just seemed to be lacking toppings and cheese.

I have a severe allergy to Tomatoes - Denino's is one of the few Italian restaurants in NY that not only takes my allergy seriously but they cater to it in the best possible way (even at their busiest time on a Saturday night). They make me the loveliest thin crust pizza with pesto, arugula, prosciutto, shaved parmesan, balsamic syrup... regardless of who I'm with, they are always jealous and asking for a slice.
I will be back here - every time I crave Italian.

Although it was labeled kid friendly on open table, both the hostess and server were completely put out when I arrived with a stroller. They were not very helpful and dismissive. Our meal very excellent though. Pizza was great! Pasta good. The server seemed to try to “make up” for the original unsettling greeting but I wouldn’t recommend or return. I felt like I was offending them with my child who was well behaved throughout the meal. I’ve lived in NYC for 12 years and worked in restaurants and hotels. I get it. It’s hard to accommodate families and kids in such tight spaces. But in the hospitality industry, you should try harder so that your patron doesn’t feel guilty about having a kid at dinner. Less than impressed

Food was very tasty, ambiance nice, service very good. This was a birthday dinner for 5 of us and just a bit too loud to have easy conversation --- but afterall, it was a Saturday night, so I am not surprised. I will go back again. Thank-you.

Could have been great, but ordered “the special”... which was anything but. Really should use fresh mushrooms instead of soapy tasting canned ones. A lot of potential in this place if they every use fresh ingredients.

7 of us (5 adults, 2 teens) went out to celebrate birthdays. Denino's was great. In my reservation notes I indicated we were a group, celebrating birthdays, and asked for nice seating in a not-too-noisy spot. They accommodated my request and the food surpassed the expectations. The Margherita Pizza was awesome and cooked perfectly. So were the eggplant dishes, the calamari (not greasy), mozzarella sticks, garlic bread, pasta. A nice, reasonably priced organic wine. Matt, our waiter, took excellent care of us and I appreciated the call earlier in our day, from the restaurant (Tyler I think), confirming our reservation. The food was very good, reasonably priced, and very good service. If I could have one disappointment, it would have been nice if there was a simple acknowledgement of the birthdays indicated in the reservation notes (since they ask if it is a special occasion). Not an expectation but it would have been a nice "above and beyond" had they done something. That said, I would not hesitate going back for future dining and events. The restaurant was clean, nice looking, competent staff, and not too noisy. Oh, and the location cannot be beat!!

This place was under my radar, but no more. The pizza is awesome. The crust is thin but crispy. The ingredients are savory, and the place has style. The pizza's are 14', and are more than enough to share. Bring your appetite, and you won't be disappointed.

I went there on a Sunday evening with my girlfriend. The owners were very friendly and managed the place very well. The staff and everyone working there was also very attentive and patient.

We started off with meatballs and my God were those the best meatballs I've eaten.

Deninos is known for their pizza. Man was that pizza good! We ordered half buffalo chicken and half chicken bacon ranch. At first they forgot to put the buffalo sauce on the pizza. The owners apologized for the mistake and tried to make this right. It was very appreciated.

I really enjoyed my experience at this location and plan on coming back soon!

The experience was very enjoyable. We ordered a salad for an appetizer and a pizza for the main course. The salad and the pizza came to the table within 15 min of ordering. We felt this was way too fast to enjoy the full dining experience. All in all, the food, ambiance, and service was good, we just felt rushed.
