“Ohhh yaaaa!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Are they the best? Go and taste for yourself...I luv their pizza...if you like burnt thin crust with fresh quality toppings...you won't be disappointed. Byob...just around at the corner store. Yup do get there early...much shorter line ups. Can't wait to go back. Soooo good!

“Great BYOB Pizza Joint”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Things you should know before you go. First, bring wine since its BYOB. Second, be prepared for a wait since they do not take reservations. Finally, be ready for a limited menu of pizza or calzone. Each pizza is handmade with fresh ingredients and well worth the wait. Easily the best pizza we've had in Brooklyn!

“Show up before 5:30pm and you will be in heaven”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

BYOB, BYOB, BYOB. That is very important. Second piece of major importance is that they do not take reservations. They open at 5pm to start taking reservations for 6pm. If you show up by 5:30pm you should be able to get the first seating. Relax outside for 30 mins and work up an appetite. 5 people max if you want a table but parties of 2 get seated quicker than larger parties.

Only two options and I suggest you get both and yes you want leftovers. You can only have pizza or calzone and then they list the ingredients of the day. Anything you order will be some of the pizza or calzone you have ever eaten in your life. Guaranteed.

CASH ONLY

“BEST Pizza in NYC Period”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Be patient, get your name on the list early, they will take your phone number.
Explore Brooklyn, have some drinks before dinner.

Then go and get your mind blown by the pizza, highly recommend getting artichoke hearts, garlic, basil, shallots.... to die for.

Bring your own wine, make an evening out of it... it will not disappoint

“Best pizza. Must visit when in NY”
Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

This was one of the best meals of our trips to NY. The crust was perfect, thin and crunchy. The sauce was flavorful, we added basil to both pizzas which really added a fantastic flavor. We ordered a marinara pizza with grilled artichoke hearts and hot peppers. We also ordered a regular pie with artichoke hearts, shallots, and hot peppers. I can still taste the sauce.
