Really disappointed, small portion very cold and very expensive for what you get. Slice isn’t as good as nearby pizzerias

I have to say, I loved this spot. Cool little place with some outdoor seating… we had an emergency and had to leave.. didn’t get to sit and enjoy unfortunately. Was going to order a pie and have a 🍺 ~ wound up grabbing some slices and eating in the car like a filthy slob 😂 Pizza was good! Thin, little greasy, little floppy, but overall taste is good. I’m looking forward to going back and sitting with a fresh pie. There was a Sicilian in there too that was good. A lot of cheese but a nice crunch to it. No pic cause my girl couldn’t give me .5 seconds to take a pic before she started attacking it… 😂

this is the best pizza in not only the bronx but in the entire world.

Party cut sausage slice from the One Bite Fest. It's Louie and Ernie's signature pie. Portnoy and the stoolie cult, hype Luigi's in Park Slope as the best quintessential gas deck oven, slice joint in NYC to the point of a 9.3 when I think Louie and Ernie's is the way better example of that. Cornmeal on the bottom, well done, thin with barely a cornicione, light tangy sauce, got the slice straight from the oven and it was way too hot. But it was good. Crispy, fresh, light crust, not chewy or dense. It isn't well done on top but that doesn't matter. I could probably give it an 8 or low 8, but I don't want people to get too hype from all the higher scores. Definitely worth visiting the full place if in that area of the Bronx. Gio from Luigi's is a nice, giving individual, I'm not counting that. But that pizza is not a 9.3 if Dave's giving this a high 7s, let's be honest.

Great slice, sauce to cheese was just a bit too much cheese. Sauce was tangy and tasty. Not enough crisp but a strong slice

Classic bronx pizza place great pizza in a nice neighborhood.

Maybe I was hungry as hell? Maybe I caught them on a good day?? Regardless, I stand by my score… minimal flop, sweet & tangy sauce and perfectly crisp all the way to the tip (that’s what she said). The meatball slice didn’t make the undercarriage soggy. I’d give the meatball slice an 8.4 only cuz they’re massive and not adhered very well. Still very good

Originally established in 1947 in Harlem, but they’ve been at the current location in the Bronx since 1959. This is an old school, cash only, neighborhood pizzeria with lots of nostalgic charm that the locals swear is the best in the borough. Even before I opened the box, there was a distinct smell emanating from the cheese that gave me high hopes for this pie. Starting with the dough, it’s thinnish, fairly floppy but not soggy thanks to the semolina crumbs underneath to prevent moisture buildup, not a particularly crispy pie, except for the crust that has solid crunch. Maybe I expected more flavor from a Bronx pie but it doesn’t have that “made with NYC water” taste that usually separates dough made in the tri-state area from the rest of the country. To go along with the distinct smell, the cheese has a specific flavor that distinguishes it from average pizza cheese. The sharp and biting taste actually overpowers the dough & sauce, making it the prevailing flavor of the pie, which I don’t love, but definitely don’t hate. As you can see from the orange tint, the cheese is harboring quite a bit of grease, not an unmanageable amount, but enough to detract from the flavor of the sauce. Along with a fair amount of oregano, the sweetness and tanginess of the sauce is a little lost and overmatched by the excess oil and pungent taste of the cheese. Overall, this very good pizza, a bit of an acquired taste but a quality pie nonetheless. I wasn’t blown away and even though it didn’t exactly meet my expectations, I’m not completely disappointed either.

Sat in box for a while but still a good football pizza - different pies weren’t consistent… good ingredients

Another Bronx classic with great coastlines. Some say greasy but they are good oils from fresh ingredients. Great undercarriage from the semolina flour. Only knock would be the crust and it needed a better balance of sauce otherwise this is an 8+ pizza.

This is great. Super thin and crispy. Delicious sauce and cheese. Excellent overall flavor. Only knock is that it’s very greasy.
