You can’t go wrong with any their pizzas off their menu or their pizzas ready for those on the go but one pizza that does stand out is their “grandma’s pie” (which you can try on our tour of Little Italy & Chinatown). It is best enjoy piping hot, right out of the oven and trust us it is pure bliss with every bite….
