I travel frequently and have eaten pizza in nearly 20 countries, and numerous US cities. Put simply, this location defines awesome, memorable pizza that will make you want to come back again and again, as I do every time I visit NYC. The best experience is to get a pie made fresh for you. The numerous varieties of slices available... More

We tried multiple pizza places in NYC, including John's which was supposed to be infamous, however Ray's beat them all hands down. Wonderful!!!

It was pizza......... a little greasy for my taste, nothing special. it was a quick dinner grab after a long day and close to the hotel but other than that I wouldn't make a point of going again.

You get whatever pizza they have made already and is displayed. Asked for slices of pepperoni, the gentleman behind the counter laughed, said they didn't have any, (really?) and waited on the next person. The next person asked for the same thing and got the same response.

Went for a quick snack after show. Service was quick and pizza was tasty, pretty much what we expected. Atmosphere wasn't great, but we were in and out pretty quickly.

I'm a tourist from Australia & I wanted to experience an authentic slice of American pizza. I handed over a $50.00 note. (I was aware how many 50's I had in my wallet). The older man handling the cash till handed back change from $10.00. I only walked 4 feet away when I realised I had been short-changed. When I... More

A number of major hotels within a 5 min. walk, so its always filled with folks. Pizza was good, mid town NYC price not bad. It needs a full time cleaner, just so may people in a small store front. Do take out, that's what we did. Take out service was very fast.

The pizzas were tasty and fresh, and inexpensive, but the place were a mess. It would be better to take the food with you and eat outside, but we had kids with us, and needed to sit.
