I've been trying all the pizza places and this is my favorite so far. It could maybe use a touch more sauce but this jersey girl is happy. My only complaint would be the hours. Wish they would be open a little bit later.

Fantastic NY style pizza. When I used to live in the area, I would eat here every week. I make sure & stop in whenever I am back in town. I wish La Prima would open up a shop in Chicago!
