“Best pizza so far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Stopped for lunch as we were craving for a pizza. It was our first NY pizza and our expectations were high! We were certainly not disappointed! Our waitress was helpful but discreet and the pizza was fab! One of the best pizzas so far and we live in the med, so we know something about pizza...
Will be back for more!

“Great Cheesecake and Awesome Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We ate here after some friends recommended this place. The pizzeria is a converted church and is amazing to look at once inside. There are brick oven kitchens in every corner of the restaurants and the service is fast and nice. The pizza is good, but what really blew me away was the cheesecake. It was so thick and creamy. So, so good!

“**Love** the pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Yes, it's a madhouse on Saturday night, but it was totally worth the 30 minute wait. The pizza was probably one of the best I've ever had and that's a lot coming from a New Yorker.

“Bad service. Overpriced. Overrated. ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

I came here with my girlfriend in January 2014 and was very disappointed. From the moment we stepped in the service was poor. We were taken to our table by a waiter who didn't once look or say anything to us. This would have been fine but the table he took us to was a booth right next to the woman's toilet. It stunk of bleach so we asked to move to a different table. We were then situated right at the front of the restaurant by the front door where the atmosphere was dead. We ordered our pizza which took a very long time to arrive. When it did finally make it's way out of the kitchen the waiter dropped it and we had to endure the waiting game all over again. It's okay though because they gave us a free salad....All in all very disappointed. $20 for a pizza that wasn't very flavoursome is very poor. What a mess.

“Very Cool Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

The inside is very cool and the food was good. We got stuck by the kitchen, but that can't really be helped. Service was average but that was probably because the place was packed.
