The pizza was amazing. New York style, a little different than what get in Seattle but delicious. Vinny is definitely from New York. We had a half pepperoni/sausage and half mushroom/olive with the red sauce. I'm glad the other pizza place was closed. Would recommend. Tip: make sure you have cash.

We ordered take-out after a long day of biking. We went with simple spaghetti and meatballs. Vinny, his cousin or whoever answered the phone had a New York sense of humor and we warmed up to him immediately. He was really enthusiastic and seemed to really be into what he does. After spending a lot of money on various restaurants... More

The owner was very friendly, but the pizza was terrible. It wasn't sliced, so we literally had to saw it into pieces, the pizza was totally dripping with grease, the crust was awful. Never eat here, trust me....

To a person not familiar with Brooklyn/New York City personalities and styles of communication, Vinny might seem gruff. Give it a minute. Vinny warmed up to my husband and I pretty quickly. I recognized the warmth under Vinny's Brooklyn way of speaking and the pride Vinny takes in the food he serves. He practically beamed when he delivered our heaping... More

Stopped by to purchase two slices to go. I know it is supposed to be NY attitude but the owner was not happy to see us, or at least that was the what we thought. Pizza was mediocre at best and the atmosphere was not welcoming.

First time visit for 9 of us and we got excellent service and good food. I recommend trying wine by the glass as we got an "eh" bottle of red. I wish I had order a cream sauce.

Italian fare done well. Not the usual run of the mill menu. They take reservations but you could show up "unannounced " and still get a seat. Prices are reasonable and the portions, although not huge, will hit the spot and you shouldn't leave hungry. The servers and staff are very attentive and friendly. I don't think you can go... More

Very personable and tasty, fresh made pizza with fresh ingredients. Vinny is very friendly and after a while feel like am a guest at his home. The food is delicious as we had two pizzas, quite filling. We know pizza as we try pizza at a different place nearly every week. Can't wait to go there again next time we're... More

I read many reviews before going here and I was very disappointed. From the moment we walked in, it was like we were a bother. He asked if we had a reservation, place was empty, we sat down and nobody came, we got up and yelled back to him that we would order a pizza to go. We came back... More
