“Best NY Style Pizza in Tampa/St. Pete”
Review of Gianni's NY Pizza

Gianni's NY Pizza
Ranked #105 of 963 Restaurants in St. Petersburg
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $20
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: Since 1976 we have been serving up some of the very best Authentic Ny Style pizza and much more. Our Family literally comes from the heart of the city which made pizza famous, Naples, Italy!We are so passionate about not the food we make ( with LOTS of Love of course) but passionate about the people whom we get to serve each day. There is no greater joy than to see smiling customers when they bite into one of delicious slices, or nibbling on our crispy buffalo style wings.....All in all we may be slightly off the beaten path but well worth the trip. We guarantee every bite you take or the meal is on us!

Discovered this wonderful pizza only 3 years ago......don't want to go anywhere where else for my NY style pizza. This is usually the first place we head to eat when we arrive for the winter each year. My husband doesn't like pizza (his loss)....but he loves Gianni's Philly Cheesesteaks. I've introduced this place to our visiting northern friends and they think it is the best as well. Wish they had another location a bit closer to our condo near Pass-a-Grille. But it is worth the 20 min drive!

I saw this place on Tripadvisor. Any time I travel to a city I always try to go to the best place for pizza in town. Pizza Junkie! I walked in. Not a big place. I didn't have time to order a pizza so I got a couple of meat lovers slices. They put it in the oven for a few minutes. My first bite... just amazing! The flavor, the crisp crust. It was fantastic! If you are in St.Pete, go to this place!!

Italian Margherita Pizza is as good as it gets.
As good as the best in Italy and Brooklyn, NY.
If you like it extra thin/crispy ask them to make with less dough and stretch it out.
Never disappoints-highly recommended.

This local pizza place is fabulous - and it's consistent. I've never had a bad meal here and I've been going in there for 20 years or more. The pizza is outstanding but the chicken philly cheese steak is fantastic and the Italian sub is not far behind. Kudos to the owners as they have always had the friendliest help. I've eaten there 3 times a week before! They can get busy but the staff is really efficient and they get you out pretty quick. Great place!!

I used to live in St. Pete for years and we would get pizza here weekly. I have since moved and... Oh How I miss you!! I have been looking for a good pizza place up here (Wilmington, DE) but have yet to find one that measures up. When I come back into town to visit family, this will be one of my first stops!! The pizza here is amazing!!
