Best Pizza in Staten Island

This pizza is always delicious. I have been going there for over 50 years. The fried calamari is the best I have had ever. The Sangria is also great.

I love this place. The food is so good and so is the staff. The pizza is a thin crust and is delicious. You have to get the garlic bread parmigiana . The fried calamari is so good.

The only bad thing is that they don't sell by the slice, but it's ok because you always want more than just one slice :)

Born and raised in NYC. I have eaten pizza in every borough of NYC. This is by far the best pizza I have ever tasted. Crust is perfect, right amount of cheesy goodness and sauce does not over power the pizza. Try it you will not regret it.

If you like thin crust pizza this is the place. Located on Staten Island it's worth the trip, you won't be disappointed. It's like a landmark. It's a neighborhood bar with a fairly large dining room. the calamari is fried just right, tender and crispy. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night plan on waiting for a table.

We took children and grandchildren visiting from Texas and sampled fried calamari, mozzarella sticks and three kinds of pizza. I grew up in the neighborhood and was very pleased they all loved the food.
