So my first New York review in awhile and I gotta admit, I’m sorry I started again with ya with an okay review but it is what it is. If the pizza is ok, it gets an ok review. So Bella Bambina’s is a place I went to for many years before I left home. My favorite slice back in the day was the meatball deep dish from here but I didn’t see they had it when I visited today. The place has the typical New York Pizzeria vibe minus the authentic mean owners and workers there. They are actually very friendly and had the patience of a special education teacher when I asked what every type of slice they got today is. So to start off with the crust, it’s got the perfect crust ratio at the end of the pie. For flavor though, it’s rather bland and maybe too doughy. It’s got that residual flour on it so that’s cool I guess. The crust overall, it’s whatever. The cheese to sauce ratio I must say is too much cheese. Granted, the cheese is good tasting, but it’s got too much. I also don’t usually comment on flop but Jesus H Christ man, this pizza has some crazy flop on it. It was also very greasy but hey, that’s not always a bad thing, you know what I mean? For the sauce, you can actually taste the sauce and I gotta admit, it’s pretty good sauce. I just wish they brought out the flavors of it more with putting less cheese on it. Overall, it’s an ok slice. Typically when I come to this place, I get there specialty pies and slices and let me tell you, they are exceptional. Very very exceptional pies and slices they got here. They also have some of the best garlic knots in the world. But pizza is pizza and no matter where you go, you have to be fair. So 5.9 is what it is. Oh and for a little disclaimer, the picture I got here has a vodka slice and a regular slice. The review is about the regular slice, not the vodka slice. You want my rating on the vodka slice? Well it’s a 7.6 easy. Only reason why it’s not a 10 is because it didn’t get me drunk. Thanks for reading and hopefully I’ll throw some more reviews at you in a few weeks.
