Best Pizza in Tampa!

Yesterday, 7/28 was my 2nd time to this place. I usually don't go to downtown Tampa too frequently but I had a presentation that I attended at the Sheraton which is only a few blocks away. The selection at that place when it comes to pizza slices is AMAZING. The hardest part is to choose which... read more

Real New York Pizza? NY Water? They claim to use New York water! For what? Who knows for sure! Was the dough NYC? No! Was the pizza the same as what you get in NYC? NO! Similar at best, but, better than most NYC style in Tampa!

Eddie & Sam's is an authentic pizza place, from the old-school décor to the tremendous food offerings. Being able to buy by the slice suited our family much better than the "one size fits all" approach of the typical pizza joint. The prices were quite reasonable and the pizza was excellent. Convenient downtown location was ideally located to many hotels.... More

Let me first start out by saying that rating food like other things is objective. Everyone has their own bar. I was born and raised in NYC and I am Italian. Unlike other New Yorkers I will admit I have found reat Italian food and pizza here in Florida. We read good things about Eddie and Sam's and were excited... More

I searched for a place to eat near the Tampa Museum of Art and based on the reviews the kids and I came here. The pizza was delicious! Truly NY style that made me miss the pizzerias from Brooklyn! Staff was friendly and helpful, especially a young man named Josh. He was working the Gelato counter and helped us choose... More

If you like pizza you cannot visit Tampa without going here. It's constantly busy - always a sign of good food and offers an amazing choice of pizzas. We love the lasagne pizza...I was reluctant at first but it is extremely good pizza and great value. Just go...it's seriously good!

Loveeeee the eggplant pizza I get it every time I go there. I love the flavors and the slices are big and filling. The staff is always nice and the place is always clean and full of people. The gelato shop next door is pretty good as well.

This place is crazy out the door at lunch, but don't worry about the line these guys are quick you will be out of the line eating before you know it.The pizza is by the slice, one slice is enough, if you get the special you get two slices of cheese & a drink for $6. So bottom line if... More

Popped in on a whim with my wife and daughter today for lunch. Let me tell you - this place is legit and rivals the best pie you'll get anywhere (high praise from an NY native!). No frills, two slices and a drink. What more could you ask for? Try 'em today!

Good pizza. Not the best I've ever had but also definitely not the worst by far. Quick service. Friendly staff. Would eat here again.
