Totonno’s Pizzeria Napolitano (UES)

Totonno's Pizzeria Napolitano (UES)


If you’re a fan of brickoven pizza, then this is your kind of place. Consistently packed, and constantly recommended, Totonno’s is the king of the thin-crust genre. True connoisseurs say the spicy, crisp, non-cheese-heavy pies melt in your mouth. Detractors say that brickoven pizzas get cold faster than a Mexican Hairless in a drafty old house, and claim that if you balled up a large brickoven pie, you’d end up with something the size of a golf ball. These aren’t cheap pies by any means, but well worth it, if you have a few minutes to wait for a table, and a few Rolaids to fight off the inevitable backlash. [MF]
