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.

Half extra cheese, half Roni. One of the best pizza spots around.

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

I grew up in Brooklyn, moved to New Jersey last year. To me, all the pizza places that are near me have been terrible. I’m very lucky that I still work in Downtown Brooklyn and I am able to drive to ANY place I want for great pizza. With that said, I found this place on this app, ordered with GrubHub. Ordered the medium pie, the flop is about 20deg, the sauce was sweet and cheese was great. The only thing that hurt a little was the bread. I wish it was just a little thinner. It was crunchy all the way to the crust. The crust itself was VERY crunchy. I feel like the dough is a few Ingredients shy of great, I’m not sure what it is, but it’s close. I’m happy I found something I liked and will be ordering again. Simply, thank you.

Grandma pie with great sauce. Cheese and dough had great texture but were a little bland. Good amount of crunch
