The best NY style pizza in Memphis! XL cheese slice is perfect! They sell pizza by the slice for a quick and affordable meal and also offer prompt delivery.

Excellent pizza, friendly service. We had cheese pizza, bolognese sauce over spaghetti. The pizza was excellent, the mbologbese was one of the best I ever had. Definitely a stop by pizza shop if you go thru the Memphis area. They also deliver to downtown hotels.

Locally owned and now has two spots. Incredible pizza. Hand thrown and a single slice will fail you up for just over 5 bucks with a drink. Great pastas with salad and drink for 8. I eat here almost once a week. Highly recommend.

I love it here. The pizza is just like in NY and the lasagna is so good. They add extra that sauce that even makes it better.

All selections are delicious and you can tell they are made with first class ingredients. Once you have the pizza you will never go back to ordering from a chain. They do deliver or you can eat in.

My husband and I had intended on trying out Little Italy for several months. Finally this past spring we were nearby and decided to stop in for what ended up being a complete game changing experience! Our first visit, we shared a stromboli and a slice of stuffed pizza which were both incredible! We must've been super famished bc we... More

Fabulous pizza, friendly service, and no corking fees! We especially like their Monday and Tuesday specials, but any day it is a bargain.

We are Italian transplants from NYC and Giovanni and his beautiful wife Brooke make us feel like we are eating at home! Enjoy the pizza, order the pinwheels, and the Stromboli and sauce will make you feel like Mama is in the kitchen making the sauce herself!!! The pizza is the best in town!
