“It's as close to NY Pizza as you can get in Tampa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I get the traditional pie which was the best pizza I've had in Tampa ever. The service is good, the place is clean, the prices are decent. Nothing to complain about.

“Dinner with friends New Your Pizza style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Definitely New York Style Pizza -the atmosphere and service is definitely NYC!!! The pizza is delicious and includes a variety of options to choose from. Typical of New York pizzeria you can purchase by the slice of a whole pie if you choose. We settled for a 20” Lasagna Pizza that included ground beef, ricotta, mozzarella and parmigiana topped with homemade marinara - I highly recommend that you stop in and have a couple of slices!

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Born and raised in NYC, I was eager to try Pizza made with imported water from NYC. I've heard the reviews of this Pizza spot being the best in Tampa, but I'll disagree. What makes NYC Pizza special is the crust. The crust is the key. I've been to Eddie & Sam's on 3 different occasions.

1st time was during lunch....crust was soft and gooey. NOT NYC Pizza Crust.
2nd time was during dinner....crust was burnt. NOT NYC Pizza Crust.
3rd time was between lunch and dinner (just got off a flight in Feb this year), and the crust was ok, sauce had no flavor.

Inconsistencies in calling it the "best" NYC pizza in Tampa is something I'd disagree with.

I'll give it 3 cannoli's out of 5.

“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

All the reviews are right on. This is indeed the best pizza I have had in a long time. The crust, sauce and toppings are fresh and delicious. After you get through stuffing yourself with the pizza you can go to the gelato counter and decide which flavors you want to try. We will definately be back!!!

“Best NY style pizza in Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

These guys are the real thing. From the moment you walk in its like stepping into a NY pizzeria. This is the only place in Tampa you will get NY style pizza thats worthy of calling it NY style pizza. I was told they ship their water in from NY to make the dough but I'm not sure how true that is. I don't really care what kind of water they're using.....their pizza is awesome! The service is fast and friendly, but there's no lollygagging at the counter! Know what you want and order it quick bc this place gets busy busy busy. Lunch special is 2 slices of cheese pizza and a coke for $5.99. Can't beat that!
