There is no better pizza in the Albany - Schenectady - Troy - Saratoga area! More expensive than the Pizza Huts, Domino's, Papa Johns and other mass-produced imitation pizzas, but worth every penny. You can try DeFazio's at the outstanding Troy Farmers' Market, but a visit to their Little Italy location is worth the trip. I am a vegan and... More

After 10 days of touring Hudson River valley, we were looking for another good meal and found this pizza. We had eggplant spinach and smoked mozzarella. Pizza was excellent. Also shared a salad. Pizza fantastic. Also bought cookies and those were also very good. Loved the people. Family recipes cooked by the family

Seriously the best pizza in Troy! Wood fired, thin crust, flavorful sauce and really delicious toppings. I love the mozzabella pizza with meatballs, mozzarella and basil. The little salads are so fresh and tasty too. Excellent wine and beer selection that is paired with the food well. It is cozy inside but can get noisy- come early!

If we're making pizza or spaghetti at home, we have to drive down to De Fazio's to get sauce. My husband will not have it any other way. After trying it myself, I completely understand. We've tried a few of the different sauces, the stromboli, and a couple of the desserts they have in their shop and have always been... More

I was born and raised in the NYC area so I've had my share of good pizza. I'm new to Troy so am enjoying searching out good local food. So what a treat it was to find De Fazio's and this absolutely delicious pie, perfectly executed with homemade sausage, right here in Troy. Everyone told me I HAD to try... More

Great authentic pizza. To dine in, the restaurant is small. Setting is very intimate and cozy. Pizzas are on the small size. I brought my daughter and her friend. We ordered a pizza, antipasto and garlic bread. All of the dishes were wonderful!

This is steps from my house, so whilst I do not have pizza often, if I want pizza this is perfect. The seating area is small, but it is fun to be in this quintessential Italian pizzeria to eat. Great choices, great crust - including wheat and gluten free - fantastic straight from the oven.

We love these kinds of places and seek them out when we travel. Great food, caring owners, loved by the locals, neighborhood feel, and more. The place is tiny with really great homemade food. The salad was great, pizza, pasta too. We were so happy to find this unique place in Troy while on a road trip to visit colleges.
