Sauce was flavorful but I felt it didn’t mix enough with the cheese. The cheese and sauce were very segregated from one another. Flavor was redeeming. Debated a 7.5-7.8 range but gave them benefit of the doubt since it was nice and thin.

Rating the plain slice here... which is good news for fans of higher scores. This place has Staten Island roots and strongly resembles the pies from Joe & Pat’s. Good crust, tasty sauce. Muzz slides off and burns your lips off tho. The square looks great but was kinda nasty.

Decent pie. Wish it was thinnier and crispier. Lacked flavor.

OK quarantine pizza review time here in Matawan New Jersey at grana Pizza Café, formally the home of Ciro’s Made famous in Staten Island over in Huguenot . A little backstory Ciros has ties to Joe and Pat’s of Staten Island which is probably top 10 pizza in the entire country. This place although the name is different and has some similar styles to that type of pizza. Ultra thin crust, tangy sauce, globs of Cheese scattered about the pizza and usually cooked well done. So I have to say I was quite impressed but I will say definitely not on the level of Ciros or a Joe and Pat‘s. She’s had an amazing flavor, I love the thin crust but this particular slice was a tad bit undercooked towards the middle. The sauce was definitely tangy but a little tart. But overall a real good slice. It’s almost like this Guy may have worked for Ciro’s or Joe and Pat‘s and try to mimic what made them famous. Either way I’m pretty impressed. They earned a little brownie points when I walked in and ordered only a regular slice and the pizza maker said just throw another one in for him so two for the price of one can’t beat that. I’m going 7.6 on the review. If they were to crunched up the middle of the dough a little more I definitely would’ve rated higher. That’s the review

The Crust was stellar! Able to hold it all without flopping. You can taste the freshness, just missing a little zip on the sauce.

Another Pizza place in NJ with the Upside Down Square made famous by the one and only L&B in Brooklyn. Sauce is excellent and crust cooked perfect. Cheese distribution uneven across all slices but good nevertheless. 🇮🇹

Better than average slice for the area. If you are a cheese lover, this is your place. Very greasy slice. Messy to eat but nice flavor. A little disappointed in the dough and in the crust. If they figured out a better crust and got the mess under control, this is a 7.6 slice.

Enjoy slice very much. A lot of sauce and lightly cooked. Very tasty. Upside down very good also.
