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

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.

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
