Everything about this place from ice cold beer to great sausage is world class.

Re: “Roman Villa

Get there early...even the huge parking lot fills up let alone the 14 tables....but absolutely delicious....a simply read menu, that has within it everything you can imagine. The staff is friendly and hard at work...the pizza is the best.

Re: “Papa John's

Love their pizza but BEWARE, their location on North Academy has closed, it still takes phone calls but they are redirected to their Powers location, which THEY DO NOT TELL YOU, and you end up DRIVING AN HOUR to get the pizza. Will never be their customer again!

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Barnes

I agree w/ the above ratings, The Barnes location recently re-opened due to a kitchen fire, and since then, the pizza bites. I once loved them especially when I requested they over cook it by 5 mins, making the outside crust dark and crispy, but Yuck to them now. They should have tried to save the seasoned oven, the new one does nothing for the taste. JMHO.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Barnes

If I could possibly rate them lower, believe me, I would. You know, for New York style pizza, they used to be alright. They also used to have tolerable prices. But, I made the mistake of listening to my loving wife and ordered 2 pizzas from them last night. A cheese and their Chicken Hot Wing pizza. Just the Chicken one was $20 alone!!!!! And believe me when I say that it wasn't worth it... It was thinner than paper. Barely any toppings and the crust was so dense that I had to take a break because my jaw was tired. It was ridiculous. They charge $14 for just a cheese pizza!!!!! Come on!!!!!! Then to top it off, gouge me with a $2.50 for delivery? Man..... I wish I could roll back time and make a better decision.
DO NOT ORDER HERE!!!! Go with Blackjack Pizza. They have changed so dramatically that I am amazed. Great flavor, super prices, and I always have plenty of leftovers. We had none with Borriello's paper thin pizza.

Re: “Joey's Pizza

From Brooklyn, have been searching for great NY Style pizza and this is it! The crust, the sauce, the high quality of the toppings...all of it is great. I can't wait to go back!

Re: “Joey's Pizza

Great NY style pizza from the crust to the toppings, all are a step above the other NY Pizza joints such as Leon Gessi or B. brothers. When they get busy, orders can take longer than normal but it's well worth the wait. If something is not right with your order, Joey is quick to make it right. It is my favorite pizza shop. The calzones, wings, subs and garlic knots are excellent as well. I definitely recommend them.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Fontaine

This Pizza WAS awesome, But no longer is very good.

Borriello Brothers Pizza used to be my favorite. I moved to the Springs from Upstate NY where NY Style pizza abounds. It's just something about the crust and sauce that makes it so good.

When Borriello Brothers first arrived in town there was not a location near our home so I used to drive out of my way downtown to pick up pies at their only location. I would have driven just about anywhere for this pizza. That was back in 2009 I believe.

Unfortunately the last two times we have ordered pizza, the latest being Dec 3, 2011 it just wasn't the same. The crust is rubbery now. Not sure I'll ever go there again since it is not the great pizza it used to be. The last two pizzas that weren't very good came from the Centennial location. I'm not sure if it is the ovens or downgrade in ingredients but the pizza is no longer to die for. I may go... more ¬ĽNote the dates of the reviews. The older reviews are much better than the recent reviews. Used to be great but not worth the money any longer.

Similar to Amanda's Fonda that we used to love... until they increased the size of the restaurant and lost the specialness of the food. The homemade chips were to die for but now they are no different than low grade chips you can get at the grocery store. It just seems as restaurants grow quality declines unfortunately.

Poor Richards still has great pizza, which trumps Borriello Brothers now. And Il Vicino Wood-Oven Pizza are also very good but not NY style.

Re: “Roman Villa

Always good food at a good price every time we go there. It's small, get there right at 5PM when they open to get a seat. Their house wine is sold by the full Liter, in a carafe, not the overpriced 750ML bottles found in other eateries.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I was perturbed that it took them 25 minutes to make a calzone. I got 2 slices of the macaroni & cheese pizza, which was tasty, but was surprised at how long it took them to bake the calzone. There was nobody ahead of me but I saw 2 take out pizzas (by that I mean I saw someone pick one up and another one that was being delivered). I was disappointed to find that there was a semi decent amount of toppings in it but there was more than 30% of just bread. I've been told it's hit or miss there and in my case, it was a miss.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

@Eric-I am never shy about asking for some sort of compensation in a case like you describe and I can't ever remember a restaurant or locally owned business turning me down. Sure, it'd be nice if they'd offered, but don't be afraid to take matters into your own hands.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I'm sorry but I cannot rate this place very favorably. We were just there (Sat evening, July 30) and it was a disorganized mess. The pizza was not bad (although not the best I've ever had or anything), but they completely messed up our order as well as several other customer orders. If they can ever figure things out, they should be in good shape. I was frankly surprised they didn't offer us any sort of comp or anything, that was a little disappointing. Thumbs down at this point.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Well I must say that the pizza was wonderful. I'm from New York and I know Hell's Kitchen does a fine job in making pizza. The only negative is that they don't wear sanitary gloves when handling food. They handle money at the cash register and then take care of the next customer without washing their hands. I find this appalling in this day and age when we must be concerned with infections of all kinds.
