I have found my pizza nirvana!! Best pizza I have had in Portland. The cheese is all mozzarella (the very best for next day cold pizza, which is my fave). The crust and sauce are perfect. I want more! It's worth the drive from Hillsboro.

The final word on slices at this funky New York style pizzeria. I have moved from Portland but this place merits a visit on any trip "home." The way they combine a hand tossed dough, some sauce, and cheese is pure magic. Start with the cheese as it's the litmus test of a good pizza joint. Grab some condiments and... More

It's so worn and used that it's almost quaint but great pizza. Thin crust with a good "pull",sauce is what it should be, not too much or little. Toppings are quality and all by the slice. Quick slice where you think should I be here until you get a slice.

The restaurant is a small hole in the wall in Nob Hill but they sell genuine New York style pizza by the slice and it was very tasty.

Fresh ingredients, and they are quite generous with them... A large pie was enough for 2 meals for three.. Family friendly. Highly recommended

This place is another one of those places I go to whenever I visit Portland because their pizza is so close to my NYC heart. It's a small place but the energy is huge, fun, interesting and contagious. I love their pizza...did I say that already??? Make sure you go and grab a slice or three!

The greasy pizza is pretty good but its waaaay overpriced and the slices are dinky. What really makes a difference though is the incredibly rude staff. I have been many times and everyone there is in the wrong business, starting with the owner. This place is a negative stereotype of how NYC was perceived in the 1980s; back when it... More
