a love for italy. mad respect for nyc.

Pizza. A word that evokes all kinds of happy and salivary emotions. For some it's a reminder of childhood. For others it is a reminder of a place or a feeling. History tells us that pizza has been around for a long, long time. Italians created it as the first street food for the working class, but soon it made its way to the top. Royalty fell in love, hence the world famous, pizza Margherita. When Italians immigrated to NYC and introduced it to America, pizza quickly spread to become a beloved regional treasure. Now, we do not think any style is better than another, EVERY pizza has a place in our belly. But, for us, our favorite way to make and eat pizza is by following the best in Italian standards while maintaining an NY state of mind. What does that mean for you? Well, simple. A marriage made in pizza heaven. 

a few things you should know.

Our 11" pizzas are not quite Neapolitan, not quite NY style, but somewhere perfectly in between. Our dough is house made daily, hand stretched and topped with only the best. We cook our pizzas to a bubbly perfection in our 100% wood fueled Italian oven. Thin in the middle with an airy, slightly charred crust that has chew. We use local and organic whenever possible, and we promise to keep gmo’s out of our kitchen and off your plate.
