Stopped for a quick bite at lunchtime - 2 pm on a Saturday. Easy in and out! Had 2 slices of chicken Parmesan pizza to go which they heated up quickly. Crust was very crispy - perfect! Toppings: chunks of chicken, thick flavorful tomato paste...sauce, cheese melted and fresh basil! Everything was delicious and the price was reasonable!More

Excellent pizza - tastes like it was made in Manhattan. The pizza was extremely large and an excellent deal. I will be coming back.

I lived most of my life in New England. Most recently in Connecticut (fairly close to NYC). This place is the real deal. I could immediately tell when I saw the pizzas in the display being sold by the meal-sized big slices. They also had...garlic knots, calzones spinach rolls, pepperoni rolls, strombolis in the display. The slice of chicken alfredo was awesome. The pizza crust was perfectly crispy on the outside and soft inside. Great sauce, great toppings, and the right amount of good quality cheese. - Absolutely loved it!More

Great pizza by the slice or whole. Reminds me of a local Italian pizza place where I grew up as a kid.

Had the buffalo chicken and it was fantastic. We shared tastes but I though the buffalo chicken was the best. Not burn-your-mouth-off hot, just right.

Taste of New York makes a good pizza. My family stayed in a hotel across the street from the pizzeria and had several pizza's delivered to feed a basketball team and family in town for a tourney. The pizzas were delivered hot and fresh. Loads...of toppings and very tasty. Plenty of plates, napkins and utensils made the dinner very easy. Slices are big. The combo was my favorite as it was loaded with flavor. The pricing was split and came out to $7 a person and I was stuffed after 4 slices. I would eat here again.More

We we're looking forward to eating here based on reviews. Very dissatisfied. No flavor Crust was over worked maybe? Result was a subpar Cheese pizza. Meatball calzone, burned on bottom, was a big lump of dough w one meatball in it and some cheese. Choked...it down because I paid so much for the meal. $39 for the three items. Baked Ziti was alright, good sugo, even though pasta noodles were overcooked. Not a good representation of NY Style pizza or Italian foodMore

Just about as close to NY as you can get in Iowa, excellent crust, holds up perfectly when folded, very little grease drip, texture, taste, aroma perfecto! Plenty of items to choose from, pizza by the slice or take home an entire pie to share,...atmosphere makes you think you in Manhattan, only thing missing is the drone of sirens and hornsMore

This pizza is the closest you can come to in Des Moines for "New York" style pizza. Extremely good. I go back as often as I'm in that neighborhood.

Ordered online at 3:15 and ten minutes later I arrived to pick up my order. All the staff was in the back and the place was empty. Someone finally went to the front to attend to me and they had no clue I had placed...an order. The guy had to call their online order center to confirm. I should at least have been offered a free soda for the wait, nada. And the pizza is expensive to boot. I paid $50 for two pizzas and some bread sticks. I'm still waiting as we speak, 3:40 now. This better be good pizza.More
