Large and crowded, very popular. Had about a ten minute wait. Well prepared pizza, One was more then enough to be shared by two people. Service was very attentive. never felt rushed as one can in popular places.

This place was recommended to my family by a friend who lives in the area and I am so glad I took their recommedation. First of all, the atmosphere is great for all types of occasions - family dinners, dates, etc. We went for lunch and had pizza, which was delicious. My daughter had the ravioli, nice sized portion and also very good. I was shocked when the bill came, very reasonable for NYC. This is definitely not a tourist trap -- you can tell a lot of locals come here.

Stopped in to pick up a pizza as I was staying at the nearby InterContinental Hotel. They pizza was ready when they said it would be and was very good! crispy crust and exactly as ordered. Staff was helpful as I waiting for my order. Restaurant was PACKED. allow plenty of time as I understand this to be a very popular place. There is a bar upfront (standing only) so at least you have a drink while waiting for your table. I liked the décor inside as well. In my opinion (guy from NC here so take this for what it is worth) it is classic NY pizza restaurant....

After a 45 minute wait (it's a popular spot), we were delighted with great pizza. I'm not a thin crust kind of guy, but had it since that is all they offer, and was completely satisfied. Service was good (the company was better). Great atmosphere. A little noisy, but that was expected. All the waiters wear shirts that say "No Slices". We thought that was because they do not serve single slices (which they don't), but realized it is really because there are no slices left when you are done.
