This is NOT ""New York style pizza"" by this adoptive New Yorker's definition, and not ""one of the best in town"" (as reviewed elsewhere here) by ANY true foodie's definition. The ""crisp"" crust was oversauced and soggy, the toppings franchise-average, the seasoning pedestrian. \r
I'd prefer franchise fare over this any day, especially since City Pizzeria's prices exceed typical franchise prices by about 15%(?!). The only good thing I have to say about this experience is that the delivery was quick (as it should be, at only 1/4 mile from my East Village high-rise). \r
Resident East Villagers and visitors, if you want REAL New York style stick with Pizza Station on Park between Broadway & C (in the SmartCorner complex, with entrances both directly on Park and via the City College station Trolley platform) despite its narrow menu and relatively restricted hours of operation. I know, I know...great pizza in a convenience store??? But improbable as it sounds, Pizza Station is the real thing: inexpensive, fast, consistently good-quality ingredients, as close to authentic New York style as I've yet found here on the Left Coast. And who knows what might happen if enough of us NY-pizza lovers beg Pizza Station to stay open later...
Pros: Fast delivery in immediate neighborhood
Cons: Overpriced pizza not in style advertised
