We are New Yorkers so were a little dubious getting pie from a place with "Manhattan" in its name. Worry not, we were not disappointed. During a weeklong stay in the area, we ate here twice. That's saying a lot!

This pizza is delicious!! The giant size was overwhelmingly huge and fed 5 people for $35! Excellent. The owners seem to know everyone in the neighborhood too!
