Before catching the subway to head back to the airport, my family decided to stop here for quick dinner. We had a fresh pizza made for us in about 15 minutes. It was delicious and the prices were very reasonable and the service was good as well. Only complaint would be that the washroom was absolutely disgusting, but other than... More

We've eaten at two so far and had pizza, garlic knots, meatballs and Stromboli- all of it is wonderful with the best sauce and a ton of cheese. Not all locations have good seating, one was nearly impossible but we lucked up and grabbed a table right before our food came out! Prices are good and workers are always friendly!... More

in this nondescript location, you will find some of the best pizza you will ever taste. The service is fast and friendly. the prices are very reasonable. Seating can be a challenge but with rapid turnover, that is usually not that much of a problem. This place is like Jimmy John's - you can't order fast enough to keep up... More

I love some thin crust NY style pizza, and this was tasty. Nothing fancy, not gourmet pizza... just good. On the wall they have pics of the owner with Deniro, Jeter, and many more. I figure if it's good enough for them, I couldn't be disappointed by stumbling upon this pizza joint.

This was the worst pizza I ever TRIED to eat. We got it delivered--and received it quickly--hmmm almost too quick--couldn't have prepared it fresh from when we called (only took 20 minutes from order to actual delivery??). The crust was so hard it was almost inedible. We had mushrooms and black olives. few mushrooms, way too many black olives, almost... More

This is about the one on Broadway & 8th. Clean, no loud music, bright, pizza good as usual, counter personnel smiles. Inexpensive.

While in New York City my wife and I had the pleasure of having lunch in downtown NYC after visiting the 9/11 memorial. We both had a calzone. They were outstanding! I highly recommend Famiglia Pizza in NYC!

Visited in August 2016. Walking on 8th Avenue and looking into a few restaurants, but ultimately decided on this one based on the look of the slices and the lower prices. Also, the "famous" in the name didn't hurt in motivating us to walk in. Had a slice with tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella. Fresh toppings with a bright tomato... More

Since there are other choices readily available I might try elsewhere. The $2.75 slice was average at best.

We were looking for a quick slice of pizza before catching our train and happened upon the Famiglia place on 8th Avenue.The pizza was great and the restaurant was extremely clean and enjoyable. Thin crust margherita pizza and various vegetable types were what we ordered and were so good! I plan to stop there next time I am in NY.... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
