You aren't going to find a better slice of NY style pizza in this area. They have been around for a while now and it's no accident. Their pies are also very consistent.

We enjoyed our lunch at Panificio. Our pizza slices were very tood, they had a nice selection of beers, and the outdoor patio was pleasant.

I love the eggplant pizza, wonderful taste. Crunchy thin crust, moist cheese and eggplant. This place has no decor, you can sit in or out. I like the terrace under the awning.

The pizza is outstanding.There are several varieties. You may select different slices for carry out or order a whole pizza for eating in or take out. The crust is thin and crispy even when reheating at home.

The pizza is great however, be prepared to deal with very rude, unhappy staff- every, single, time! We never want to call and order from them because we know the person on the phone will be incredibly rude and unhappy to serve us. Please fire...More
