I love pizza and the Denino pie is definitely one of the best you will ever have!!! I would also highly recommend the calamari, it is crispy and not at all greasy. I have taken many people there and they all love it. If you go in the summer, Ralph's ice is directly across the street and their ices are... More

I have been coming here for years. The Pizza is Crispy, huge, amazing sauce, and the perfect amount of cheese. i have never has a pizza tha wasnt amazing. My only complaint is I hate that they make you eat off paper dishes. If im eating in a dinining room I will like to eat on real plates not paper.

You cannot say you have come to Staten Island without a stop at Denino's Pizzeria. It is a delicious meal and a wonderful place with great service. A family owned business that is fantastic

Simply put, Denino's has the best pizza in New York from my experience. People may not think Staten Island as being the hub of New York pie, but it is incredibly delicious. Crispy, huge, plenty of toppings, amazing sauce, and the perfect amount of cheese. If you're in SI, check this place out!!

Been eating here for decades. One of the best on the island. Recently given a top 100 rating by zagat. The pizza is awesome with semolina on the bottom and fairly thin crust. Chicken parm is excellent the ambiance could use a facelift very old dining room. But has a nice bar for hanging out. And overall pleasant atmosphere Not... More

One word: HEAVEN. Ok, so maybe I'm slightly biased because I'm a native-born Staten Islander, but COME ON, it's Deninos. Anytime I learn a friend from anywhere has never tried it I take them here and according to them it always lives up to the hype I give it, and trust me, i give it a LOT of hype. People... More

Thin crust cooked to perfection. Other Italian food items are available. The place is usually crowded for lunch and dinner. They are "cash only" but have an ATM machine in the lobby. After dinner, go across the street to Ralph's Italian Ices.

We have been going to Deninos for 25 years. The food is still the same. Delicious thin crust pizza made with the best of ingridients. The calamari is always tender and never greasy. The shrimp parm plate and scungilli are always on the mark. Bar drinks, including a nice sangria are very reasonable. The place looks better than it ever... More

This is a landmark on SI. Sangria is excellent. You may have to wait awhile but it's worth it. Parking is usually an issue. Start with fried calamari and then try the Garbage Pie..lots of fresh veggies and sausage. Delish!
