You aren't going to find a better slice of NY style pizza in this area. They have been around for a while now and it's no accident. Their pies are also very consistent.

We enjoyed our lunch at Panificio. Our pizza slices were very tood, they had a nice selection of beers, and the outdoor patio was pleasant.

I love the eggplant pizza, wonderful taste. Crunchy thin crust, moist cheese and eggplant. This place has no decor, you can sit in or out. I like the terrace under the awning.

The pizza is outstanding.There are several varieties. You may select different slices for carry out or order a whole pizza for eating in or take out. The crust is thin and crispy even when reheating at home.
