After some of time spending in museum and park decided to go pick up some pizza and eat it in hotel room. Pizza is ok, fresh, but crust too sick and hard to chew. Peaces are big but because they are not very tasty we all did not finish them, even my kids who love pizza. Ordered fries, but it... More

Don't be put off by the outside ....it's very basic. We went on recommendation and it lived up to expectations : best pizza we've ever had and ridiculously cheap.

On my recent trip to NYC I found this little gem on my last day. I got 2 huge slices of pizza for $12 which was equivalent to 8 slices back in the uk so well worth the money, my friend had the lasagna and dough balls which I also helped her with as the portion was huge. Good flavoursome... More

Wanted to get a slice of New York style pizza as I am from Chicago. Just wanted a snack as it was late afternoon & we were heading to dinner. The pizzas are cooked then they throw the slice into the pizza oven. Comes out hot & crust was very nice & crispy. Flavor was good. I would certainly stop... More

Yes the service is not going to be overly friendly but you get that real Italian feeling with Tony behind the counter. The pizza is good and that is what matters. Worth a visit. And fairly priced!!!

After landing in NYC and having a busy few days, ordering a pizza sounded like a nice relaxing evening. We had a slight problem on ordering only having UK phone numbers, but the staff at Rays noticed this and called the hotel to make sure we got our pizza ok! We had never had pizza like it. We ordered a... More

We were walking through downtown late on Saturday night and passed this place and decided to turn around and give it a shot (pretty sure they mentioned it in the movie Elf). The slices were quite large and they heated them up in the oven for a few minutes before handing them over. We took advantage of the shakers of... More

The menu board was crowded and a little confusing, the menu board did not clearly list the cost of a slice, or a bottle of water. The seating was small and crowded. 1) 1 Slice with mushroom, pepperoni, sausage. 2) 1 Slice with everything on it. 3) 1 bottle of water (No name brand) Total cost $15.00; Unfortunately we did...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
