I expected to like the buffalo chicken slice much more than the plain here at Luigi's based on peers' feedback, however, I was pleasantly surprised when that was not the case. In regard to the plain, it was a little thicker than a typical NY style pizza and most similar to "football" style pizza instead. However, it had straight 7.0 quality ingredients and proportions, but one aspect of the slice was exceptionally good. The slice had exemplary structural integrity, and practically zero "flop" (see picture). This was despite its thicker and heavier nature, and, in addition, the crust had a great crunch to it from the tip of the slice to the handle bar. The crust alone, being so good, elevated the score to the 7.5 it received. As for the buffalo, it was pretty good. It was tasty, had the signature buffalo taste and aroma, and had a quantity of cheese that was appropriate. One area that I think it lacked in though was in variety of flavors. It's very simple, and while good, it could certainly be elevated by some more herbs or spices. Other than that, it had the same great crust as the regular, and had a little slack when held in the three finger flop test, which is justifiable due to its sheer weight. Overall, a simple, more tasty, and filling slice on the pizza spectrum. You can also ask for ranch or blue cheese. I got blue cheese, and after having my baseline taste-tests, I put some on and it was good, but didn't change the score or level of tastiness at all. In general, both slices are worth getting and are pretty good, but nothing to go out of your way for. Both get a 7.5, but keep in mind they are on their respective scales (plain and specialty pizza.)

Luigi better find Mario quick and get his help for these regular slices. The regular slices taste like microwave pizza. Very bland, not fully cooked and you end up chewing the dough over and over. Ask for well done, that might help. Go grandma slice here!!

Pretty good pizza. Not bringing anything too special to the table but it seems like a reliable place to regular. I like the crust, the cheese and sauce are aight. Kiiiiiinda floppy but overall enjoyed it!!!

Good all-around slice. Minimal flop, little to no grease, cooked nicely on the undercarriage. The taste of the sauce stood out, but the lack of crispiness on the crust limited its potential for a higher score.

Very standard pizza. Not much flop and I dont think the sauce is very flavorful. Definite football pizza.

Solid slice of pizza. Perfect amount of ratio of cheese and sauce. Thin crispy slice and solid very crispy well done slice.

The epitome of standard Football pizza. Maximum flop, tons of oil, skinny crust, regular amount of cheese. It's pizza. Nothing less, nothing more.

OK first thing is first 3.37 for a slice of pizza is fucking outrageous it better be a good fucking slice the pizza is crispy the sauce is bland the cheese sucks there’s no flavor with this pizza you can probably pass this off as two Bros because it taste like a dollar a slice

Not terrible but incredibly greasy. Need 3 napkins to soak it all up

Very bland pizza. Gets the job done but definitely nothing to get excited over. Sauce seems non-existent, cheese is fine and crust is ok. Much better pizzerias in Long Island.

Pizza wasn’t hot chicken was hard and the bacon tasted like a cars engine cheese wasn’t melted big let down. Not as good as it looked no flop.
