“FRAUD OPERATION”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Bait and switch fraud. Maffei Pizza offered a "deal of the day" (not Groupon, but from a site which offered numerous offers from other merchants who did not conduct fraud.) type offer where you paid $10 upfront for a voucher for "$20 at Maffei Pizza". When I went in to use it, the employees had no idea about it and phoned the manager who told me (over the phone) that they would not accept it. Do not patronize a business which conducts fraud, and a bait and switch scheme.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2007

Seriously, if you haven't had Maffei's... best pizza in NYC, hands-down. They've perfected the "Grandma slice," and I don't think I'll ever have better.
Downside: Don't expect to eat there. During lunch it's packed with people, sometimes a line outside... take-out is the way to go. I was at Law & Order one night late, and they ordered from here... I'll never find better! (Except, well, that one place in Milano.) :-)
