“Don't eat here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Raco, the owner is rude and arogant. The cashier / order taker is rude and does not know the menu. The food is not consistant. It's more like pot luck or a box of chocolates. The owner thinks the place is clean, lol , what a joke! I will not return.

Robert R, pizza chef at Toby's Original Little Italy Pizza, responded to this review, September 9, 2013
First off I would like to apologize for the rude service and second for the mis communication of the order taken. We take pride in being one of the busiest pizza shops in florida ,and customer service has always been on the forefront of most important priority,so with that being said a mistake may happen and we try to due whatever we can to make the customer happy and do whatever we can to make it right. I know you said you would never go back but,if you come back and ask for myself I will ensure that it will be the best experience ever,and your taste buds will agree. Thank you for letting us know what we need to work on to make coming to Toby's a better place to eat the best pizza around! We have been here since 1972 and even on our anniversary we have cent slices(whatever year anniversary) and give t-shirts away no other family pizza shop to gives back to our loyal customers and we made that day very special for our community.

“Best NY style in St Pete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

No ones hand tossed NY can beat Toby's. Make sure, You ask for fresh mushrooms unless you like the slimy ones out of the can. NY attitude with every pie, know the drill (typical order/pay - get a # - pick up your pie when your # is called) and you'll get along fine.
