Saw their sign for a large 2 topping pizza. They made it while I waited. Only took 20 minutes or so. I sat and looked the place over. Everything I could see looked spotless. We liked the tender crust and enough toppings, The price was very reasonable. Parking is limited if it were busy.

Great views.. ok food. Surprised that such a prime location isn't fancier , but the food is good that's the bottom line right ? Passing thru on a rainy day I gave this place a shot. Clean , well staffed .. well rounded mid budget pizza [ plus ] joint

Landing on the Newark Canal and listening to a village concert got us in the mood so we walked across the river and landed at Pontillo's. Ordered up a medium 'roni and black olive, and sipped our Orange Crush while we waited. Pie came out hot, with abundant toppings. I would prefer more sauce, but the crust was good -... More

This has been out favorite local pizza place for years. Recently it's been even better tasting and we think it's because the owner is back in the shop making the pizza again. Super cheap pizza and the owner is a very nice guy!

We're traveling the canal on a rental boat. This place is within walking distance of the port. The crust on our pizza was perfect and I thought the sauce was excellent. Everyone was friendly and the pizza was quick. I think they'd deliver to the dock if needed.

We wanted to try some place new so we tried here. We all ordered subs. There was barely any meat in any of them. I ordered a steak sub for 7.95. There was the least amount of meat that I've ever seen. There was barely any cheese. I asked for it toasted also. It was burnt. The others in my... More

Pontillos has the best dough and sauce of any pizzeria in Newark. Staff is efficient. Great selection of subs, salads, apps. Try the fried dough dessert. Indoor seating is limited but location is right on the Erie Canal and has a lovely view outside. Most of the time we carry out. Pizza ready in 20-I think a large one topping... More
