Solid slice. Was hoping to hit johnnys but it was closed. Normally would not give a flat score but it felt justified. Had the Sicilian way back that would probably be an 8.4

Awesome too notch Sicilian pie here!! A bit off the normal path Sals is an old school cash only joint known for the square pie and it doesn’t disapoint. An amazing crisp undercarriage followed by the pillowy goodness this style should have. The sauce could’ve been a touch more plentiful but the bites that had it were amazing!! The cheese really sets this off as it has great flavor and there’s a lot of it!! If your searching for top tier straight up Sicilian this is one of the best! Great people inside workin too in a nice little strip area with a Ralph’s across the street what more could you ask for.

With almost 60 years in the pizza game, Sal’s has been slinging pies since 1964. While their regular plain pies represent a classic New York style, they’re mostly known for having some of the best Sicilian pizza around. So naturally, I had to evaluate both styles. Starting with the traditional circle pie: the dough is firm, thickish, decent crisp with a cracker-like crunchy undercarriage. The sauce is solid, yet, subdued…sweet with decent tang, but somewhat sparse. The cheese is fairly standard but tasty, of good quality and not too greasy. This is a very prototypical football style New York pie that lacks pizzazz but is very reliable. The standard circle pizza comes in at a very reasonable 7.3, a pie you can set your watch to. The Sicilian pizza is very different in such a good way: thick, doughy, soft, fluffy up top, outstandingly crunchy underneath with exquisitely crispy crust. The dough is excellent in both taste & texture, some of the best you’ll find on a Sicilian pie. The mozzarella cheese is melty & creamy, not too thick, just the perfect amount to coat each slice. Not to be outdone, the sauce is sweet, tangy, and more delicious than the sauce on the regular pies, the only problem is how scantly spread it is on the pizza. Some slices taste like just dough and cheese with a hint of sauce. If they could scoop on a few more ladles of the sauce or maybe provide some on the side, this would rate in the low-to-mid 9s among Sicilian pizza. As it stands, the lack of sauce keeps the Sicilian pie at a very respectable 8.3 with room to improve with extra sauce. Overall, I’d tell the regular pie “I like you as a friend,” but the main attraction is the Sicilian, balancing out to a 7.8 combined score. Make the trek for the Sicilian and see if the sauce is enough for you.

Awesome sauce. Great flavor. Could have cooked a tad longer…a bit chewy and little crunch.

Other than being next to the infamous L Street, it isn’t that impressive!

I’m reviewing the Sicilian slice not the cheese slice. I think the review Dave gave on the cheese slice is spot on. I do believe that this is the best Sicilian slice you will find in NY and most of the world.

Very good cheese slice, the doughy and soupy consistency in the middle separates it from great, salad made with perfect crisp (unlike cheese slice) and average Sicilian. Not quite an 8.

Good but not great. Thought it could have cooked a little longer but overall a good pizza.

Old school spot famous for the Sicilian (not my favorite style). I think Renapoli in Greenwich does it better. Tons of cheese on this one, which I don’t hate

Large cheese pizza, 5:55pm on a Saturday, $18.00 Pros: Sauce and cheese are good, nice bubbling around the crust Cons: Nothing that unique about it Verdict: Should be noted I didn't eat the pizza right away, it cooled off a lot by the time it was cracked into. Could it have scored higher if I ate it right away? Not by much, as I got a good sense of what it's about based on taste, ratios and cook level. I'd say it's a textbook pizza, right on par with what you'd expect from a Westchester pizzeria. There's a lot of hype around this pizza but it doesn't do anything special to set it apart. If I were in Florida, I'd be thrilled. In New York, it's standard - which is still very good. It's NY Pizza.

Greasy slice, way too much cheese, pretty good sauce, crust was doughy and had a ton of extra flour overall sal’s pizza one is not as good as sal’s pizza two

The Sicilian will change your life. The regular plain slice is very good 7.4ish. But the Sicilian is 8.3 all day everyday.

Chicken bacon ranch is amazing. Hands down some of the best pizza on earth
