One of the many offshoots of the OG- Lombardi’s. Open since 1924 with the coal oven on deck. Next level sauce for sure. Cheese was spaced out like Lombardi’s but they def put a healthy amount of parmigiana atop the sauce which made it perfectly to my liking. Consistency and crunch in the dough was tite but it was lacking a bit in flavor. No bullshit two hour lines, sat right down. That alone was an omen that you need to be here if you are ever in Coney Island. 8.6

My personal all time favorite! Similar to Grimaldi's and Lombardi but imo the crust and sauce are slightly better! If your going to make the trip you MUST eat it there. Enjoy!

I was not expecting this to be THAT good. Prez totally lowballed the score here. This pizza is as good as it gets. Food Network even called it the best in the world! I dont doubt it. Definitely in my top 3.

Up there with the best. Naples style which Dave pure hates on. Fantastic pizza. Had Di Fara’s, Joes, Etc and this is definitely up there.

Outstanding pizza. Perfect cheese and sauce, flavorful crust, slight flop, just needs tad more crisp

Well worth the wait. Hang at the beach, call it in. Take a swim, hang and talk a small walk.

The chef was great and took a lot of pride in his art. Respect. The sauce and cheese were on point and full of flavor. The dough was good and you could tell it was made this morning. Unfortunately there was just a little too much crust for my liking and it was dry.

This pizza has it going on. No toppings needed. Old school joint killing it with the coal oven. Had my kids with me 2 thumbs up from the boys.

Top five pizza I’ve had in NYC. Not for everyone - some may not like fresh mozzarella or sweeter sauce (I do) - but for me, this was coal-fired perfection. Puffy crust on the edge was a highlight - a truly memorable pizza that’s a must-try.

I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my own hype but it so was the sauce is amazing the cheese is incredible and fresh and the taste of the crust is dynamite. And the people are great!!! Great place oldschool vibe I love it.

Great sauce. Probably my favorite part. The cheese is good, but not amazing. Crust is really good, but not the best. Worth checking out if you’re in South Brooklyn.

Had to redo my 1st review First time in Coney Island and was caught up in the moment . This is the worst pizza we have had while in nyc and this is our 6th trip here. No pep, no sausage was out of both. Did half plain cheese and other half mushroom Pizza felt and tasted like it was sitting in water. Plain cheese was ok nothing great Way over rated. If you making a trip to Coney Island get a hot dog
