Excellent pizza and friendly service. Thin crust pie. They don't use a wood fired oven, but this pie is better than most places that use wood fired ovens.

This is the second time my husband and I have gone to Nick’s and given all the options in Queens, we’re happy to make the return visit rather than try something else. The pizza is made in the old world tradition, thin crust, simple fresh ingredients and cooked in a great oven to perfection. The menu is not extensive but... More

The pizza is thin crusted with a well done bottom. I enjoy it because it isn't sitting in oily cheese and salty tomato sauce. They place fresh mozzarella strategically on an individual pie then a minimal but sufficient amount of tomato sauce with fresh basil. If you want to add toppings they have numerous choices. I usually get broccoli and... More

Consistently one of the best pizzas in all of NYC they don't disappoint. Now they even take credit cards! Sadly they still only do whole pies and since I'm usually alone it's a lot to finish. The salads are also really nice and fresh.

Nick's is probably my favorite place to eat in Forest Hills -- excellent pizza and salads, decent beer selection, and best fresh cannoli I've ever eaten. Very friendly to families with small kids too. Staff is sweet and my kids love watching the pizza makers.

Nick's makes a great wood oven pizza with an artisan look and fantastic thin, crisp crust. Recently Nick's expanded the menu to include stuffed calzones with any of the pizza toppings; the pepperoni is especially good. Although crowded on weekends, you can order a pizza made and get it within 15 minutes. Salads are OK; need option with fruit, nuts,... More

Robert, thanks for reaching out! I'm sorry to hear you found the menu a little limiting. We've actually always offered calzones on our menu, and our pizzas are made in a gas-fired oven. I hope that helps to clear up any questions you had about our menu, and I'm glad to hear those details came through with your pizza. I... More
