Had calamari for appetizer - delicious. Ordered two pizzas for our table. Clam pizza and MOR were excellent!

This is a Family style restaurant. Our first time and we loved the thin crust pizza. The address is 524 Port Richmond Ave, Staten Island, NY 10302.

The best pizza on Staten Island! Atmosphere is a bit bland but worth the visit. Definite stop if ever on the island.

What was once a superb pizzeria is now living off of its reputation, and I say this as a former Denino's aficionado. The pizza is no where near what it once was; far too little sauce and sub-par cheese, very greasy, and dried out crust. There are many superior choices on Staten Island if great pizza is your goal.

We just stopped at Dennino's with our granddaughter and had their wonderful pizza. We used to go there with our children, and wanted to show our granddaughter where her Mom and Aunt went to eat. The pizza just happens to be the best anywhere. The service is friendly and it is a party atmosphere, couldn't have selected a better place... More

Denino's is a mainstay on Staten Island. In my opinion the best pizza on the island. It can't be beat. The white pie is above all the greatest pizza under the sun. If you leave denino's and your mouth doesn't hurt from chewing then you are doing something wrong!! Also if you like different types of pizza try the buffalo... More

This is the ultimate New York style pizza. What makes it so special? It's the chewy, crispy crust that has great flavor. It's not bland or dry. It's the sauce. Perfectly seasoned and in the right proportion to the perfectly melted cheese. I like to order a 1/2 liter and a plain pie to share with my husband for the... More

We go to Denino's every time we visit Staten Island. We always get fried calamari, sometimes the mozzarella sticks (huge!) or wings. The pizza is so delicious that we have taken leftovers, put pieces in zip lock bags, and carried it home in our backpacks on the plane! My mouth is watering just thinking about that pizza!

There must be something in the water in NY that allows the piziola to make such incredible crust. Crunchy on the outside, tender and chewy on the inside. Not the floppy, fold over many think of when they think of thin crusted pizza. This crust holds up because the toppings are perfectly balanced, not too much sauce or cheese and... More
