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.

If you have the chance or accidentally go over the Throggsneck Bridge, pass by Louie & Ernie's pizza on Crosby Ave. The best pie to get has to be the Sausage. I frequent the establishment a few times a month and they have never made a bad slice! Bravo guys!

Louie & Ernie's makes a FANTASTIC pizza. Their thin crust is my favorite ~ I think their sauce is perfect.. Try the Sicilian ~ you will love it.

We ordered a sausage and pepperoni, along with a sausage and cheese calzone. The pizza was heaven. The service was friendly and helpful, considering I was wearing my Red Sox jersey. The... More

NYC pizza at its best. This was recommended to us by locals and we were not disappointed. We ordered the traditional cheese pizza, it was fast and piping hot when we went to pick it up. The staff were extremely friendly and prices were great. Highly recommend if you're anywhere in the vicinity. I'll be dreaming about this place when... More
