This is Denino’s just off Bleecker Street. Been here since the 40s and a really traditional lovely restaurant. Very friendly staff, they gave me postcards and asked me though the making of the pizza. I also stumbled across a nyc pizza tour going on so got to listen in for free, which was awesome. This is perhaps the best looking pie I’ve ever had in terms of presentation; it just looks beautiful and I felt bad spoiling such an attractive view (but not that bad!). In terms of taste the cheese was plentiful and chewy. Slight flop in the fold but relatively crispy and piping hot, straight out of the oven. The cheese potentially overpowered the sauce. In the bites where it came through there was a gutsy tomato flavour, again, quite a bit flavour. Overall I just found that cheese too heavy, although it smacked of old New York. You can’t get these style pizzas anywhere else and I’d travel many a mile to have another one. 8.6. Take a little cheese off and you’d have a 9 or upwards. Definitely worth checking out though, and the music and atmosphere is superb.

Crunch of the crust incredible. Sauce had a good sweetness with the cheese not overbearing or too heavy.

Rich sauce and perfect proportion of fresh mozzarella. Edges of crust burnt rather than lightly charred but kept its shape and crunch.

Tried 40+ including all the 9+ places in Manhattan. This is #1 we’ve tried. Clam pizza is excellent if you want something different. As is the sausage/mushroom if you are looking for something more traditional.

Great pizza, pepperoni and cheese, perfectly crafted, little sweet on the sauce, great dough for the crust. 8.1, stand by it

Very good slice. A lot of flop. Couldn’t been cooked more on the bottom but overall good!

Cooked Right! Great Crust! Maybe a little more sauce to get into the 8's! But solid pizza!
