Outstanding Thin Delicious Pizza and Calzones

Louie and Ernie's starts their pies with a cornmeal base on the pizza board. This gives the slices a unique taste. The slices are just right not those doughy huge slices that are served in this predominately Italian neighborhood with 5 pizza shops within a 4 block area. Their calzones are puffy and... read more

Louie and Ernie's starts their pies with a cornmeal base on the pizza board. This gives the slices a unique taste. The slices are just right not those doughy huge slices that are served in this predominately Italian neighborhood with 5 pizza shops within a 4 block area. Their calzones are puffy and full of ricotta, sausage, or meatball...delicious.

After reading multiple reviews ranking this as the best pizza in the Bronx, decided to check this place out. Restaurant was pretty full which is always a good sign. Service was good. Pizza was pretty good but I've certainly had better. Wouldn't go out of my way but I'd definitely come back here if in the area.

My colleague and I visited here for a pie after work some years ago and the pizza was so good, the experience still resonates inside me today. We ordered (forgot the exact name) a deluxe pie which included everything on it to go. Man, it was sooooo good. Although I work in the Bronx, Louie and Ernie's isn't near me... More

Typical neighborhood Pizza place with one exception, the Pizza is the thinnest I have ever had. Absolutely delicious, worth stopping in for a slice or two. Treat yourself!

I was born and raised in the Bronx. I am a regular at Louie & Ernie's. It is definitely one of the best pizza places in the Bronx. If you are in the area, it's well worth the visit. The calzones are delicious. My recommendation: have a regular slice, a Sicilian slice, and a calzone. You can't go wrong! Chase... More

Best Pizza in Bronx. Am not a big Pizza lover. We are inundated in this area with Pizzerias. This place has really good Pizza and from someone who does not care for Pizza that is a plus.

There's a 2004 New York Post article framed on the wall entitled "Slice, slice baby", along with a bunch of other reviews and accolades...all well deserved. This is hands down the best (thin crust) pizza I've ever had. The crust is perfectly crisp. The sauce is fantastic. The cheese...the grease...just enough to make this pizza nirvana. This is the way... More
