Given the many choices of excellent pizza, I always find that I end up at Sal and Carmines when cravings strike. The work the dough the old-fashioned way and let it rise for a long time in wooden drawers. I find their sauce to be well-balanced but will readily admit that some people think it is a bit too salty - probably why I like it so much. There is no one flavor that is overpowering - which I find important. The dough is crisp, thin, and perfect.

For me, this is the best pizza around.

Can't believe we traveled so far uptown for a slice of salty cheese on cardboard. Friend from Cali texted his buddy to say "NY pizza, all hype" (and we all know avocado and microgreens are not pizza toppings!) Gotta represent the east coast so I'm still in pursuit of a good slice of NY pizza (just too many other food options), otherwise New Haven pizza is still tops!

This is a pizza place that specialises in slices. The maximum time you are allowed to stay is 20 minutes, not that you'd want to stay much longer! Its the place to grab a slice or three, a can of drink and continue on your way. It was delicious pizza and was just what we needed for lunch. Slices were $3 each.

Hard to find, hard to park, staff was the owner and seemed disinterested in being there...but it was all worth it! The pizza here is awesome and worth all the trouble it took to get it! Thanks for carrying on the tradition!

Maybe the best slice joint in the city. Real no frills, old school, total institution; surprised it never was on Seinfeld.
