Louie is a great guy

I was hoping to get a "slice" of New York pizza while in town a few weeks back. We were on our way out and I had still not enjoyed a good slice and I called VIPizza. It was before opening and I was just hoping to get a recording with the time they opened. Louie (one of the owners)... read more

This corner spot has been a Bayside mainstay for decades. It is basically all pizza, though they have calzones and some rolls, too. So if you're looking for anything else (like heroes), this is not the place to go. It is conveniently located two blocks south of the LIRR and 1 block north of Northern Blvd (25A). They have the...

Bleah! My family likes this place, but I do not. I am still searching for great pizza in Bayside, and I don't think it exists. To me, the best and only place to get great pizza is Rosa's Grandma pizza on Fresh Pond Road in Ridgewood. My pizza search in Bayside continues.

This is a long time Bayside staple. Famous for Sicilian pizza, all the pizzas are fabulous. They have quite a variety. There are also calzones and garlic knots. There's ample space to sit and nearby street parking. They don't serve salads or anything else. You have to pick up as they don't deliver. But, it's worth it. There pizza's the... More

One of many pizza places in the area but by far the best, as evidenced by the many MANY fan photos covering their walls. I always get the plain slice (or three) and it is a slice right out of heaven. They also have Barq's root beer on tap which is a plus in my book. Keep in mind that... More

It's a decent pizza place...clean, well lit, priced right in line with other pizza places. That's all you need to know except that parking is available.

VIPizza has been around for years and still has the best pizza around! If you are a fan of Sicilian (square pizza) you're in for a real treat! The pizza is doughy and delicious! The guys are always so friendly! Be reminded they are cash only!

Sicilian Pizza is the route to go here. They bake the pizza with the cheese and sauce unlike many other sicilian pizza shops who prepare the dough first. The final product has a denser dough but it's light. They use great cheese and just a touch of sauce. Like eating cake, but better. When I'm in Bayside,I rarely miss stopping... More
