Frankie, this place is the real deal. Big in-wall coal fired brick oven, family story on the place-mat, and cash only. The pizza itself was a real classic slice. Perfect flop, really great cheese, and excellent sauce... which leads me to the first negative, not enough sauce. Furthermore, the crust, while very tasty is a little thick. May be my personal preference, but I’d rather paper thin than having a roll around the edge thick enough that looks like there’s something stuffed inside. As a side note, place has some of the best fried calamari in the greater NYNJ region. Real solid spot Frankie, 7.9.

You can tell they only use the highest quality ingredients. Out of the 50 pizza places that I’ve had in NJ, this is my favorite place.

I was happy coming here cause of Daves review however the pizza was not that good. My daughter ests at least 2 slices and today she had only one. Service was friendly and the restaurant looks old school. If you live nearby and hungry cool but not worth the drive.

Happy national pizza day! Definitely will go to try it in stores to have it hotter

Really good... crust could’ve been a little crispier, but it was still delicious. They don’t sell slices, only pies. The sauce reminded me of Pizza Town.

Delicious sauce with a subtle but crisp crunch. Love the char from this oven. The crispy pepperoni cups are my go to topping here.

A descendant of Patsy’s in Harlem and Grimaldi’s in Brooklyn, this joint uses the same coal-burning brick ovens set to 1,000° the same way they did in the 1930s. Despite cooking at that insanely high temperature, the pizza is still surprisingly soft & doughy with virtually no crisp. The dough is very similar to a zeppole in texture and taste, which is not a bad thing, it’s just not crispy. Essentially a Margherita style pie, the ingredients are outstanding. Deliciously sweet & tangy sauce with plenty of zip rests atop exquisitely fresh house-made whole milk mozzarella in kind of an upside down pie. Super fresh, melty & creamy, this is some of the tastiest cheese you’ll ever find on a pizza. Overall, this is right on par with Grimaldi’s pies, which has basically become an upscale chain pizzeria since being franchised. The lack of crisp & relative softness of the dough is really the only thing holding this pizza back from reaching the 9s. I’ll order well-done next time and see if that changes things. But this is as close to authentic Brooklyn pizza as NJ gets.

Good amount of sauce and chesse nice and tasty and crunchy not your typical chesse pie because it’s a margarita pie

Zeke back at it. Tangy sauce, definitely the best part of the pie. Crust much to be desired. Good crusty top but the rest was doughy. Ingredients are definitely there, so I respect it. It barely gets out of the 6’s, but it’s not bad.

This is really, really good pizza. Worth going out of the way to try. Ingredients tasted fresh and place was nice inside.

Too much bread, a little heavy, and the sauce lacks a distinctive taste. If it was thinner with a touch of flavor (garlic?) the entire experience would have been more in line with Pres’ review. Maybe in the 8’s.

My most favorite pizza EVER. The crust is perfect. The sauce is tasty. The cheese is exquisite. The best pizza in the tri-state area.

Crust and cheese were amazing, the sauce could have a little more zing, but overall still great pizza

Very good pizza, they only serve margarita style pizza. All of ingredients seem very fresh. If your in the area it's a good place to grab a pie.

Cooled off pretty fast but it was very good. Sauce hit different. Cheese was a little overbearing at times. Crust was great.

Excellent Pizza. Very tasty sauce. Fresh Mozzarella Cheese. Dough tasted great. Only complaint it was too doughy.
aogar1192/18/20, 10:44 p.m.
Delicious. Love the ingredients. Sauce flavor is great, it isn’t too sweet or robust. Consistency is key and this place has it. Awesome mozzarella cheese taste (very fresh) and my crust had good crunch once the pie settled. Initially right out of the oven, the pie is soft but barely any flop and if you know anything about this style pizza, you know why...would never mind stopping by here although it’s pricy for pizza.
