I've grew up a couple of blocks away but moved out of town about 18 years ago. You can find pizza spots every quarter mile in Brooklyn and I've tried many different spots including the few in Park Slope. Every time I visit, I literally stop here for a slice before arriving at my uncle's house. The cheese slice, square... More

This is what a pizza parlor looked like when I was growing up, Basically a hole in the wall joint. The pizza takes me back to my childhood too. Great brooklyn style pizza, Thin crust, tangy sauce and fresh cheese. I will make this one of my go to pizza places. All I could say is YUM!

Wow!! We were wanting to try pizza in America and were told Brooklyn was the place to try it, we were not disappointed. My husband got takeaway and bought it back for us. When asked what he wanted top order he replied with "what do you suggest for our first pizza in America" The man made us a half and... More

Ordered a large pie. Tasted like he had heated up the one sitting on his counter for the past hour. Disappointing sauce. Crust was thin though and crispy.

Stayed nearby at an air b&B and was referred to this place. Basically a hole in the wall take out place selling a wide variety of pizza by the slice. We had a sampling of their fair and had no complaints. I'm not so sure I'd go out of my way to eat here but it was good.

I'm no expert on pizza, in fact I know almost nothing but for what it's worth it was the best pizza I have ever had in my life I literally couldn't believe what I was eating, and the shops pretty cool too. Very authentic, very Brooklyn.

Bought a couple slices of the fresh mozzarella pizza. Ate it standing outside the restaurant since it was too hot inside. The crust was thin and crunchy and the fresh mozzarella was very good. Would have had more but had to rush to go to the airport. There are pictures from the movie Big Daddy with Adam Sandler on the... More

Loved this place. Picked up Grandma Pizza and Meatball pizza for a family movie night while visiting our son and daughter-in-law in Brooklyn. We had the Grandma and Meatball pizzas. The pizza was delicious and great conversation with Giovanni. Very welcoming to non New Yorkers! We loved the photos on the wall!

Went to NYC for a quick vaction this place has some of the best pizza I've ever had! If you go make sure to try the Sicilian and the fresh mozzarela slices! Also relatively inexpensive and quick. I wish we had pizza like this in oklahoma!
