Cheese slice is solid. Light with good amount of cheese and sauce. Sauce could have been a tad sweeter, but still a very solid slice. Grandma slice blew the cheese out the water, however. I can not suggest it enough - it is delicious.

I know I said it like 8 times in the review, but the plain slice was cold by the time I got home so maybe the slice didn’t get its fair shake, but it is what it is. Didn’t love it. Nothing to write home about..HOWEVA, the grandma pie was legit. I said 7.6 in the review but if I could go back and score it again, which isn’t allowed, I’d give it an 8 for sure. Grandma pie had a generous amount of flavorful sauce and seasonings, and the crust was crispy and not overly filling..I also see on the app that the margarita seems to be a hot item, so maybe id go back and dabble with that.

Not bad. Could have been cooked longer for more crisp. Sauce and pepperoni were boring.

There’s no reason to jack up the overall score with inflated 10s & high 9s...this is legitimately good pizza. But it’s also a tale of 2 pies. The standard cheese pie (pictured on the bottom) is very good, nice crisp, consistency, solid ingredients, but nothing too special, a very respectable 7.5 among the regular pizzas. The superstar pie here is the “Barstool Margherita.” They should have given this pizza to Portnoy first and kept the family at bay til he was done scoring; there’s no doubt it would have been in the high 8s or low 9s. This pie is one of the best I’ve ever had; and I’ve tried over 200 different places in the last 5 years. Elite level mouth-watering sauce with zip, zing, zest, tang, and sweetness that will rival any Italian grandma’s Sunday gravy (that’s right). The wonderfully fresh mozzarella is beautifully melty with a deliciously creamy ooze, complimenting the outstanding sauce perfectly. The dough is incredibly tasty with a fantastic level of thinness & crisp, topped off by perfectly crisped crust that ranks among the best I’ve ever had. A few light basil clippings adds a little extra pizzazz to a pie already bursting with flavor. Could use just a little more mozzarella; but that’s the only thing holding this back from an even higher score. As it stands this Barstool Margherita is an off-the-charts 9.5! Without a doubt, one of the best pies in New Jersey and in the conversation with some of the best in NYC & New Haven. Averaging out with the standard cheese pie, this joint gets an 8.5 overall, which is a terrific score. But the Barstool Margherita alone is worth making a trip to this little gem in the Garden State.

Best pizza around!! The grandma and thinny pies are to die for and the chicken parm dinner is unmatched. Great atmosphere and awesome service!

Incredibly delicious. A newcomer to Nutley that’s staking it’s claim as the best pizza in town.

Delicious pizza. Highly recommend a Grandma pie and some garlic knots or rice balls on the side. I mean come on look at that picture!!

Phenomenal pizza and great atmosphere. Pictured is the pan pizza slice. Sauce has great tang and crust is very crispy. No flop. Cooked to perfection. Other notable pies include the grandma, the Gia, barstool margherita and the famous thinny skinny that Pres just reviewed. Definitely recommend.

Delicious slices at a fine new joint in this Pizza Triangle town. Went for a the Grandma and the Marg slices (I’m done with “the rules”) and they did not disappoint. Sauce could use more zip and crust some more crisp to reach 8 territory.

I really surprised how good the slice was despite the re-heat. Crisp crust, even balance of sauce/cheese for this traditional slice. Cheese had great tang and was complimented by full flavored sauce that had zest. I’m looking forward to returning and trying a full pie. Exceptionally Good!

Amore’s “Thinny Skinny”. So thankful this place is close and has amazing pizza. Much, much better than overrated Ralph’s down the road. I’ve had 4 different pizzas from them, all fabulous.
