Love this little place! Convenient location and authentic New York pizza slices. When I travel to NYC for business, I always reserve at least one night to get a slice from these guys.

2 huge slices of pizza and a drink for $5. Can't beat it. Very delicious!
Went on a Friday evening, around dinner time. It was very hot outside and very hot inside as well. Service was good though, and I'd recommend it for authentic NYC pizza.

A close 4.5 stars! Only for their regular pie..

A good lunch in FiDi?! It's a miiiirrraaacle!!

Old style, run down looking NY style pizza place here with your real, gruff New Yorker guys working- without gloves on while they are handling your pizza and handling money at the cash register. I noticed a lot here during my 20 minute wait.
Of course I ate the pizza anyway..It all just looked too good. Although I haven't tried the Sicilian style yet - here's what I think is best (and worst- amazing how such a good pizza place could also serve a slice that is soo bad).

Vodka sauce slice - Skip! This was awful - from the taste of the sauce to the crust.

Buffalo chicken slice- $$$$, a lot of chicken though. Very hot/spicy. This was 3 star. The guys in the office really liked it. Personally I wouldn't get it again.

Regular style with mushrooms - this pie was 20++ bucks but huge. Piled high with mushrooms, excellent sauce, not too greasy - huge slices with a not too crispy and not too thin crust. Perfect amount of sauce and cheese and perfectly cooked. This is heavy type pizza so you don't need many slices. Still it was soo good, I had three - which seemed the size of about 6 normal slices.

Finally - real old NY style slices! Thanks to Yelp I found this. For a mushroom pie - would definitely return!
