Had high expectations after hearing many rave reviews, but I didn’t find it to be anything special.

Is this my 100 th review? Not even sure.. i know im getting close. As for the piiza, not your typical NY Style. It actually reminded me of pizza i’d get in Buffalo NY. Super old school Italian “Mom and Pop Shop” vibe inside. Heard they been open 35 years or something. They got a little baked goods showcase(more on that later), and a Deli with “Boars Head” brand meat. Originally i thought i might give this place a high 7’s, but i think that it was the great service, and the small business old school feel inside that pumped the pizza up in my mind. Its not bad at all though, Albany sucks for pizza. Saratoga has a couple decent spots (Pope’s), but as for Albany, the place has surprising shitty pizza, a few decent spots (Marisa’s La Familia, Prima, Madison’s), but nothing like i thought it would be. This pizza however, i could see myself really enjoying while watching Tom Brady sling the rock for Tampa Bay this year. This is football pizza. The dough is thick and soft yet kind of crispy on bottom. Sauce is very savory, and the cheese isnt greasy at all really. If you live in Albany, and you havent tried this place, you should. BONUS REVIEW! I got a brownie with chopped walnuts on top.. fuckin thing was massive. It was cooked just how i like Brownies, soft, kinda gooey and it had chocolate chips inside, thats a power move.. it was fucking fire. *Kids show* I’m telling you that was a 9.1 brownie all day. Fuck Right.

Pizza review time part two, after I finished up at I Love NY I realized I hadn’t reviewed a long time Albany favorite, Sovrana’s in Lake Ave, just west of Washington Park in the heart of Albany. Very disappointing, while I was for “Ma” to pull my slice from that tiny little re-heater oven in the front corner I perused the wall hangings. There were a bunch of “Best Of” plaques and newspaper clippings, but non after about 2004, most seemed to be about 1998. I think that says a lot. It’s super fought, light, very light on sauce, skimpy on cheese and the slice weighed about a half a pound. Super heavy, there’s a bowling ball in my gut now. That oven turned the crust into cardboard. Not good. I had about 5 bites, it’s drunk pizza at best. There are many wildly high ratings on the app, a couple even in the nines. I can only guess all of the high reviews came way after dark, into the witching hours when your taste buds and pizza awareness are well toasted and incoherent. Just my hunch. This was very bad drunk pizza 5.1, and the 5.1 is high because it holds at least a point for nostalgia and a point for the Sovrana name and shop

Thick but very flavorful - Sauce to cheese ratio was spot on & the crisp YET soft crust was the perfect touch...HIGHLY recommended to stop here for a PIE & PASTRIES 💵💵

After the first bite I had an immediate flashback to my high schools cafeteria pizza. If you want to reminisce about your younger, and likely more in shape self, this is the place for you. However, if you’re looking for quality New York style pizza I suggest seeking other options. The ratio is destroyed by an unearthly amount of dough. But hey, if you’re a pillsbury dough boy then you just might like it. That’s a review.

No grease, a little bit of flop. Super chewy, like bubble gum. Not really a thin crust, but not super thick. I don’t know what everybody else was rating this against, or if this is just a bad day, but there’s nothing special here. Can’t taste any sauce, cheese has zero flavor, same with the crust. There’s a nice char flavor around the outside crust, but that’s it.
