If you've ever been to Staten Island you'll soon realize that there's a pizzeria on almost ever other block, but the thing that sets Deninos apart from the others is their thin crispy crust. It's my favorite and I usually visit once or twice a month. Don't expect slices at this pizzeria, whole pies only! But after the first bite... More

Delicious pizza, wings and all! Never a bad meal at Denino's. This is also my son's favorite pizza spot!

If you come to NYC take the free ferry ride that is spectacular in itself, to Staten Island, and go to Denino's. this is what pizza was meant to taste like. It just don't get any better than here.

I have been going here for the last 40 years.Everthing is served on paper plates. It's pizza and some good apps. Prices are fair price BUT they only take cash. They have a cash machine on hand for those that only carry credit cards. They share their tips which explains their "okay" attitude. If you go on a Sat or... More

We were disappointed our pizza was burned and had skimpy toppings both times we were there. I don't understand why other people rave about the pizzas. This is certainly not the best on Staten Island.

We have been going to Deninos for many many years. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Thin crispy crust with great toppings baked to perfection. Their white pie is to die for. Pepperoni is outstanding. Appetizers.....mozzerella sticks are not the skimpy ones served at other places and fried calameri are the BEST BEST BEST!!! Sorry to cut this... More

I set up a night at Denino's so that all my family could gather together while I was on a recent visit to Staten Island. We were treated very, very well, were given a large table and our own waitress. Service and food were perfect.

I love this traditional, bustling pizza place and the history behind. It's said to be the best place on SI, but I admit I've had better pizza elsewhere, particularly Brooklyn.. But I do like the idea of this long family tradition and we think their cheese sticks are amazing. Pitchers of soda are a fun thing too, and something you... More

I've never felt compelled to write any type of review before, but to see how highly rated this pizza place is, is crazy. I live very close to Denino's for the last 30 years and It is by far the worst pizza on Staten Island and possible the whole state of New York. It's burnt pizza, with the most unauthentic... More
