“BEST Pizza on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Simple, no fuss Italian-American restaurant that serves great pizza, cheap pitchers of beer and whatever else you'd usually find at a place like this. It was PACKED on the Friday night we went, with mostly families and young couples. The atmosphere is very active, kids running around, waitresses zooming back and forth. A very neighborhood-feel.

The pizza was delicious. Thin crust, not too floppy. We had a garlic pizza and one with goat cheese and sausage. Both great. A pitcher of Brooklyn lager washed it all down. Final price was ridiculously cheap. If you're in Staten Island visiting, stop by and enjoy a pie. If you're from SI, then you've already been.

“Great Staten Island Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

Deninos is a classic "go-to" pizzeria when you don't know what you want to eat. The pizza is always crisp and tastes great. Place is always busy, so be prepared for a wait esp. on weekends.

A great Staten Island night is pizza at Deninos and Ralph's Ices across the street in the summer!
