The Zagat Review
Fans “thank the pizza gods” for these separately owned joints, where “superior” Neapolitan-style pies emerge from coal-fired ovens with enough “authenticity” to “make an Italian grandma proud” ; they're “no-frills” and often “jammed” , but the Brooklyn Heights locale has a back patio.

Met up with some friends here. I had heard it was good, and it was. We ordered 3 pies for our group. It was my first actually New York style pizza. I had heard that this place has lost its liquor license before we went. The guys in my group we surprised at how dead the place was when we met up. We figured it was because no one could have a beer with their pizza haha. I had a great time, and the pizza was really tasty. Great crust, and perfect for folding

Small cozy place with very good service. When we went in mid-April 2018, they had lost their liquor license. The pizza was pretty good with an outstanding crust.

I have frequented this establishment for almost 10 years and, after visiting for the first time recently after years of being away from NYC, have found them to be just as good, if not even better than what I remember. They swing a little closer to traditional NYC pizza style vs the classic Neapolitan style that became popular over the past 15 years in the US. Regardless, they keep their true Italian roots with their topping choices (soppressata instead of pepperoni, arugula/Parma prosciutto, etc). I really appreciate this style and find it quite underrated—this place needs to be on more best of NYC lists.
