Do not know why people give this restaurant a great rating. Ordered a clam pie. The taste was delicious, but it was too dry. I was very disappointed. Will not go back.

Nice pizza and a good cold beer - what's not to love. Packed house which is also a good sign. Service was outstanding. Final point-bring cash-they don't accept anything else. Enjoy!

My family and I absolutely love Denino's Pizzeria! It's only about a 15 minute drive from my grandparent's home, so whenever we visit, we almost always drive over to Denino's for a bite to eat. The pizza at Denino's is spectacular, it's very crispy and always cooked perfectly. But, when you go in, don't be expecting a fine dining atmosphere. This place is very homey, they serve your pizza on paper plates, and give you very small coffee stirrer straws instead of actually straws. But, the taste definitely makes up for the lack of decor. If you're in the area, definitely stop over to this delicious restaurant, but make sure to expect about a 10 minute wait. By the way, Ralph's Italian Ice is right across the street if you're looking for some dessert.

Staten Islanders and aliens have been flocking to this cash only establishment for decades. On SI, where great pizzerias abound, Denino's has been on the top of the heap for as long as most SIslanders have been alive. Go expecting a crowd, so-so atmosphere and maybe the best damned pizza you'll ever eat. Seasonally, walk yourself across the street for another landmark for dessert: Ralph's Ices.

Went to Denino's with a large family group and was able to sample several different pies. All were excellent, but the clear favorite was the garbage pie without mushrooms. Outstanding pizza!
Contrary to other reviews, the service was friendly and efficient.
