If you are looking for a true east coast style pizza, this is the place. Service is fast and friendly. Great family place.

If you you think this is pizza that represents NY then you have never been there. The pizza had no real flavor and was like eating slightly tomato and cheese cardboard. I love good pizza, but if I am going to have the carbs it better be worth it. I was very sadly disappointed in place. 90% of the pizza... More

This is the closest you can come to real NY pizza outside of NY. The garlic knots are awesome, the pizza is excellent. Real NY family owns the place and they really work there.

If you can't go to New York to eat the pizza, go here. It's a very large pie, the way new Yorkers love it.

I won't honestly try and tell you its anywhere near as good as a real slice from almost anywhere in NYC, but as California pizza places go, its definitely above average and that's pretty good in my book.
