Best bar pizza - sure. Best NYC pizza?

After hearing great things about this place, decided to finally check it out. Inside Is nothing special, it's an ordinary bar. Service was fine. Pizza is very good - really tasty tomato sauce, good crust and huge sausage pieces on our pie. Wouldn't say its best NYC pizza but it's pretty darn good.

Went here after my daughters school play with the family because I had heard so much about Lee's Tavern. It was voted one of Staten Islands best pizza places. I will say I was a little confused at first since there is no sign outside to even know that it's Lee's Tavern, but we found it. We order a plain... More

If this were England Lee's would be a neighborhood pub, but it's not England, so Lee's actually has great food. Their pizza is among the best in NYC. Get the clam pie you won't be disappointed.

I drive past about 11 pizzerias to get pizza at Lee's. Thin crust at it's best. I can not rate the food because I've never strayed.

Small neighborhood bar/pizzeria. Pizza is good. Clam pie is good. It's been awhile since we have been there because the tables are too close together and we like a little more room. It is definitely worth trying.

Excellent Sandwiches, Eggplant is my favorite. Awesome pizza, just the right amount of cheese to sauce ratio! Waitress was very helpful in recomendations. Always service with a smile. This restaurant had a real neighborhood feel to it. One of those places where everybody knows your name. Once you try it you'll want to keep coming back!

Almost drove by since they don't have a sign and thought it was just a bar. The front room was crowded so we went into the back room. Waitress gave good service. The calamari was so good, the cheese garlic bread a bit overdone. We ordered a regular pie, bar clam pie and bar pepperoni pie. One was better than... More
