Having come from this neighborhood I know Louie & Ernies. Moved upstate 20 years ago so don't come here to often. But when I do does not disappoint. From 30 years ago to now everything is exactly the same, some of the best thin crust N.Y. you'll ever eat. Whether you get sausage (my favorite) or any other topping you... More

Walked over to the restaurant from Residence Inn. Clean restaurant very fast service. I can see why they are number 2 for Bronx pizza. Crust was perfect: Crisp and slightly chewy. Topping great. I'm bringing the family back this weekend while they are visiting me in the Bronx. Excellent. Exceeded my expectations.

Louie and Ernie's pizza never disappoints. Crisp crust, delicious sauce, fresh toppings and excellent quality mozzarella make for a great pie each visit. Eat in instead of picking up for the full effect.

most people rave about the pizza however the best thing about louie and ernies for me are the deep fried calzones.most pizzerias now make oven baked calzones which are not even close to a deep fried which are the best hands down.
