This is the best pizza in Rochester. Of course, New York style pizza is my favorite, so that helps a lot. Honestly, I don't know that I can think of better pizza I've had period. It's thin, foldable, and crispy on the bottom. You won't...More

My favorite lunch time place to go. True New York Style....mmmmm! They have thin, thick, stuffed crust whatever you like. The stuff crust is the best I ever had. If you like folding your Brooklyn pizza like I do this is the place to go.

If you're looking for a traditional "Street pizza" style meal, then you cannot beat this spot in downtown Rochester. There are many varieties to choose from, by the slice. It's not fancy. It's just great.
