It has a nice vibe but the pizza is burnt all the time. At least for the handful of times i've been there.

It’s probably fairer to say their pizza doesn’t appeal to your taste, because there isn’t much room to fault Razza’s pizza Margherita in terms of mastering the style. Sure, they don't use mozzarella di bufala, but there aren't any Italian water buffalo around here either.

This goes back 5 years, to the Summer of 2009. That was the former location of La Rustique. The previous owners had a new oven built into the space. Shortly thereafter, the landlord tripled their rent.

You can read about it in this JCLIST thread: La Rustique / Paulus Hook Brick Oven Pizzeria

+1 on the classic Italian from Romano's - my personal favorite in JC. Vinnie's 3 was my first ever slice of pizza at the age of 2. Rustique also deserves a mention.

I will begrudgingly admit that Paulus Hook Pizzeria makes a good pie. I have had it on many occasions, and it is always solid. I also patronize the liquor and wine store next door, which is owned by the same people. But, the way things went down leading up to their ownership of the place was not very palatable.

BTW, for those who may want to see some serious "food porn", check out this video that made the rounds a few months ago on a bunch of food blogs and sites. It is a "behind the scenes" view of Razza and the chef at work and the effort that goes into making bread and butter. Awesome video.

Roman nose on Newark and grove makes a good pie as well, among other things.



Another vote for Razza. It is TOP NOTCH. For those familiar with Lucali, it is a similar product: thin, crisp, but not like a cracker, with really inventive toppings. You can tell that the owner/chef has poured his soul and sweat into bringing about his vision. If you visit Razza, make sure you order the bread and butter ($4) which is an incredible dish on its own.

As for other places, Roman Nose is definitely good, and their bread is excellent. The last time I visited, I was told it was sourced from Sullivan Street Bakery, which is some of the best bread in the area.

John's is also good. More along traditional toppings and really thin pizza. I still prefer the pies created at their Bleecker location, but the JC locale is a good spot for going with family and/or friends.

Some will disagree with me, but I also give a thumbs up to the Grimaldi's in Hoboken. The Clinton Street location is the one opened by the original clan after they sold the BK location. Excellent pies and a cozy place to boot. The newer location on Washington puts out a great pie, but it lacks some of the character that made the Clinton St and BK locations such gems. The Washington location is simply one of the many outposts you now find all over the country. Great, solid product, but a bit too polished of a location.

I couldn't help but notice this thread. I'm new to JC and have to know what people think is the best pizza in JC. I'm from San Francisco, so pizza isn't really our forte. I tried Artichoke and Lombardi's in NYC recently but neglected JC altogether. Suggestions?

The article briefly mentioned him opening a place in JC. I copied that paragraph along with the link to the rest of the article if anyone else wanted to read it. Not sure how that could be considered vague...

Gino's makes a good Grandma... Brooklyn Style, the owners grew up with me in Brooklyn as well. Give it a try.

It is funny that another pizzeria is coming. At this point, nothing surprises me, with retail and the types of restaurants opening in DTJC. Although I will say that at least this is an old school Brooklyn pizzeria that's been around for a long time. Maybe it will push out some of the terrible pizza places we have around here. There really aren't too many good slice joints. Delenio's is good, and Buon Appetit is OK.

Yeah you're right about the taste of the DT pizza places glad I'm up in the Heights. But this place looks promising and hey they're Italian as well.

+1 to Abbondanza. Their pizza doesn't seem to garner much attention, but their pies are really, really good. I am particularly obsessed with the broccoli rabe, sundried tomatoes and sausage pie. Perfect combination of flavors, and it is HUGE. At $18 (or, thereabouts) is a steal. It will feed no less than 4 people.

So, your parents owned this place before you did?
Yes, my dad originally opened the store in 1967. It's always been in the family. Now me and my brothers own it, and then we kinda expanded over the years. We have more locations: one in Staten Island, two in New Jersey, and we're still opening. In Jersey City, also in Sayerville.
