Arinell's pizza has been here for quite a while. The pizza is average at best. It's NY style pizza served by hippies that looked like they haven't bathed for a while. Not the type of people I would hire if I owned a food establishment....More

This is the spot to get a quick slice of Pizza and a drink. I generally go for the NY Neopolitan Style. Mushroom is my favorite-- with extra Mushrooms. The whole pies are reasonable and delicious and good to take home.

Great taste. A hole in the wall but once you try it, you'll forget any deep dish.
