Pizza by the slice as a takeaway for lunch which was really good and tasty. Fast friendly service even during a busy lunchtime.

The kids and wife all ordered pizza by the slice. Aside from my picky son the others really liked their choices. The slices were large and the prices were not bad for something in this area. I went with the Stromboli which was very good....More

First time I had been to NYC and couldn't wait to eat a slice of New York style pizza. I had the cheese, tomato, and basil pizza and I was not disappointed - the crust was thin and crispy and the ingredients were very fresh.
