We ordered a couple of slices each and 2 beef patties. The pizza was awful; a failed attempt at both New York style thin crust pizza and Sicilian pizza. The Sicilian reminded me of the frozen Ellio's pizza I used to have as a kid. Perhaps I'm jaded having grown up in the Bronx where the pizza doesn't compare, but I expected better. It sounds harsh, but I think previous reviewers who have never had New York style pizza are singing this place's praises simply because they don't know any better. I would say it was comparable to an English muffin toaster oven pizza that an 8 year old would make. As for the Jamaican beef patties, they were really disappointing as well...the pastry was not at all flaky, the meat inside was overly greasy and had no seasoning. This was surprising to me because I can buy a much better version in the frozen food aisle at the supermarket here in a suburb of Buffalo. But, where you're driving home from a weekend in Atlantic City and have a craving for New York style pizza, you can get fooled into thinking you're going to have an enjoyable experience. On a positive note, this restaurant is in a really cool old building with ornate little details and high ceilings. The restaurant also appeared clean. These two positives in no way make up for the poor food quality. I think maybe if this restaurant were to serve a Hispanic menu instead of Italian, they might have a shot at being a descent place to eat.
