Best New York style pizza in Cleveland by far! Even Michael Symon agrees!

Thin, super crispy, no flop. Picture shows the Frank Pepe. That pizza itself would be a 8.1. But I got a pepperoni too, that was lacking in sauce. So the overall score reflects both pizzas.

Thin, could be a little more crispy. Balance is spot on. Overall a good slice that can hold its own in the pizza world. 7.9

Solid slice. Crust is good. Sauce is balanced. I could eat this all day.

One bite everyone knows the rules. Thin, crispy, not much flop. Lite with bold and balanced taste. Great crust.

Pretty chewy for how cooked the bottom looked. Fairly boring in the flavor dept. pretty disappointing overall.

Really disappointed. I thought it would be crispier than it was, one of the most flaccid things I’ve ever seen/put in my mouth. Not much sauce and the over all taste is bland. The sausage was tasteless and dough was chewy. Won’t be back.

My last Ohio trip pizza review. It’s thin with a wood fired crust. It’s not as crispy as I thought, bummer. The sauce is fresh with chunks of tomato. It’s a little sweet but not entirely so. The cheese didn’t stand out as anything special but overall it’s a great pie but temper expectations.

Hands down the best slice on the Westside. Chewy, crispy dough- sweet and tangy crushed tomatoes- a punch of garlic and the perfect amount of cheese and seasoning with basil/oregano. High quality ingredients only here! The Neopolitan. Just delicious.

I moved to Ohio from Los Angeles almost eight years ago and have been on a mission to find the best Pizza in the Cleveland area. Sweet Basil! One bite, everybody knows the rules! I ordered the Special 12 inch pie. Good crisp, a little flop, solid ingredients but the sauce is a little plain. One of the better pizzas I’ve found but I’m forever searching for an eight or better in the Cleveland area. Having lived in Los Angeles for 25 years and been to and had true NY pizza this is as close as I’ve found. Certainly with a try

Great homemade sauce, perfectly cooked, amazing flavor. Love the thin crust, but the slices are floppy.

Although they adversities themselves as “Neapolitan pizza” I wouldn’t necessarily call it that, with the exception of the fresh/raw tomatoes for the sauce (which was fantastic). The fresh cheese was also really good. The only thing holding this pie back was the crust l, I wish it would’ve been more well done, but it still wasn’t bad. They just miss the 8s because of it.

Perfect crunch, perfect flop, had to add a little salt to bring out the flavor. Flavor is really important and I shouldn’t have to add salt. This could be a 9.1, but have to go 8.5. Just not quite enough pop to the flavor here. Great place.

Could use some more sauce but it’s a very good New York style slice

Solid neapolitan style. Good taste, good crust, great service. Side note: The Grapes of Wrath pie is one of the best - worthy of an 8.9 score.

Floppy lack of taste to sauce and cheese. Reminds me Chef Boy Ardee
