Had eaten there a few times and tried their white pizza. Everyone in my party was sock for days. Plenty of other great pizza in KC.

We were just hungry so said, well let's go into this place. It was kind of run down, holes in the boot seats or off-colored duct tape covering the holes. Food was ok. Seemed a little overpriced, but it wasn't too bad. My wife's sandwich was really big. They had "My 600 Lb Life" on the TV, which really isn't... More

The owner is from Long Island and brings his New York experience to Kansas City. Everything is made fresh. I've told him that before he can even think about going back east he has to give me his recipe for Italian sausage!

I was born and rasied in Staten Island NY and when moving to KC I was so sad about having to leave real pizza behind. After trying tons of awful places in KC that claim to be NY pizza I stumbled across the art of pizza. Everything about their pizza is great down to the cheese they use. I can... More

This is a small little space with great food (pizza, at least). We didn't try anything but the pizza and it was very tasty! Service was a hair slow, but I think the lady waitressing (and seemingly doing everything else) was by herself. For that matter, she did a great job and we were satisfied. Pizzas are HUGE, by the...

I love pizza, but I really love true NY style pizza. A lot of rest do an ok job, but this little pizzeria, in the corner of Baltimore and 18th St, does a phenomenal job. The sauce, the cheese and the crust are fantastic. My family loves when I bring home their pizza. Great job and keep it up.

We were in town for a family vacation and found this spot on Trip Advisor. Excellent pizza! The garlic knots were awesome. The calzone was superb. The service was a tad bit slow but the overall experience was great. We'll add this to our list for great pizza spots in KC.

Having grabbed a slice on the streets of NYC, this is the next best thing to being there. Pizza's are HUGE! Great selection of beer and wine. Save room...desserts are fantastic! The Beignets are a must. On a side note, there are very few places in KC to get a good Muffuletta. It is one of the surprises on the... More
