I love the flavor of the food, but it's been a coin toss as to whether or not I'll get my food hot, warm, luke-warm, or icy. Last night, it was warm, to the point where the cheese...

I was close to giving this place 5 stars 5/18/2011

So the only reason I'm not giving this place 5 stars is because I just moved down here from Chicago and have nothing to compare this place to around here. But I have to say that I was close to giving this place 5 stars. We ordered a large Caprese pizza for take-out and it was great! The crust passed the NY style pizza test of foldability and was thin with just the right amount of crunch. The ingredients were fresh and plentiful. I'm definitely looking forward to going back for more. more

Definitely one of the best pizza chain in Houston. 5/16/2011

New York style pizzas and large slices. They even have proscuitto pizza and other gourmet pizzas. The only problem is that it tends to be a bit expensive compared to other pizzerias. But for lunch at some places there's a reasonable deal consisting of one large slice and a side salad. There are other special lunch combos as well. more

Amazing 5/12/2011

Ordered brick oven pizza to go Half Cheese and Greek Pizza. We ordered a medium size for 3 and it was more than enough we had left overs for lunch the next day. This pizzeria is the closet to Chicago and Newyork pizzerias. I can't say much of other types of pizzas as I havent tried them but the Greek Pizza was amazing. Thin crust , fresh cheese and toppings and enough cheese. more

This pizza is delicious! 5/9/2011

This pizza is delicious! Huge slices and great cheesy, yummy taste. They just opened up a location in the Marquee by Edwards Theater off old Katy. Love it! --Celia more

I think this may be my favorite pizza place in town 5/4/2011

I think this may be my favorite pizza place in town, though I must warn you, I haven't been to too many pizza joints in Houston. The secret here is to order the pizza and eat it at the restaurant for maximum freshness and crispiness of the dough. I've had this pizza delivered before and it just wasn't as good. The service at this location is excellent too! more

This New York Pizzeria is very good! 5/2/2011

My favorite is the caprese, it has fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes, DELICIOUS! On Monday's their large pizzas are half off! A large pizza could easily feed three people or four if they all got salads/soups. But if you do this you cannot use your Groupon. The chicken tortellini (Tortellini Brodo )soup was very tasty too! It is a very nice atmosphere, you could wear jeans or wear work clothes. They also had a pretty long wine list if that is important to you. more

A great deal 4/27/2011

I tried their online ordering. It is user friendly and they are very attentive to your order, at least at the Galleria location. I went with the SoHo pizza, you get three choices for $12.95 (my choices, chiken, roasted peppers and spinach). What a great deal! When I placed the order I accidentally chosen four different toppings without knowing and they called me to make sure I wanted four; which I didn't and was able to make the change. Initially, I thought the pizza would be slightly larger than a personal pan pizza. Boy, was I wrong! You could feed 3 for SQUARE pizza. Extra star for square pizza, I'll make it a 5 star ... IT was delicious!! It was very savory. more

Very happy with my meals 4/20/2011

I've both used their online ordering for delivery as well as dined in this restaurant. I've been very happy with both! Dine In: Their pizza slices are very large! I got my usual Hawaiian, and was quite happy with it. I also had a garden salad, and it was your usual garden salad fare, and a very nice portion! The restaurant is clean and spacious, and the restrooms are clean (a big plus!). Delivery: Delivery was fast and accurate! I got a pasta dish, and was equally impressed as I was with their pizza. I will dine in or order out again.. I was very happy with my meals! more

The real deal 4/15/2011

New York Pizzeria is the real deal. Giant slices of pizza cut from homemade pies are cooked the old-fashioned way in brick ovens. Hand tossed before your eyes, the Italian and Sicilian pies are the main attractions, while stuffed pizzas like Stromboli and spinach Calzones are also popular choices. more

Special 4/13/2011

Frank Sinatra's on the juke box, fluorescent lights flicker overhead. I could be enjoying "a slice" at John's on Bleeker Street in New York, but I'm not. I'm in Meyerland at New York Pizzeria. "New York pizza has the same deserved reputation as Texas barbecue," said chef and owner Anthony Russo."You can eat pizza in every city in the world, but when you take your first bite of New York pizza, you know it's special." more

A 'keeper' 4/6/2011

The dining area is large with plenty of tables. Posters, pictures, advertisements adorn the walls. The ceiling are high which sometimes mean the noise level is loud. Not in this case. We found a table toward the front of the dining area as the kitchen gives off heat from the ovens. My salad arrived first, just a basic side portion of Caesar's. The romaine lettuce was crispy and the dressing tangy. My slice of heaven arrived as I finished the salad and boy-howdy was it HUGE! I will admit that I am a plain cheese pizza kind of girl because I think that too many toppings can spoil the crispy-ness of the crust. I ordered my slice chock-full-of-meats & veggies. With all of the extras the crust was still crispy considering how thin it was. Wow, what a great slice. The sauce, meats & veggies on top of an incredibly crunchy crust. I actually couldn't finish it and I'm a pig. The counter and serving staff were very friendly. They have a bustling, high energy and well tuned staff. This place is a 'keeper'. more

Amazing 4/4/2011

I was coming home from class and I called my husband to see what he was in the mood to eat for dinner. He said Italian. So I pulled up my handy-dandy Yelp app and looked up what was near by. I didn't have a menu so I just orded two lasagna's and two salads to go. They said 15-20 minutes. I got there and the food was ready, which was really nice not to have to wait. The price for all of it after tip was $38. Definitely not an every night take-out meal but it was nice to treat ourselves on a Tuesday night. The lasagna was amazing, perfectly mixed with the right amount of sauce, meat and cheese. It came with thinly sliced bread that was also really good to sop up that sauce on the lasagna. The portions were pretty big so I only had about a third of it and put it back in the fridge for later. I'm pretty excited for when I get hungry again! more

LOOOOOVE your place 3/30/2011

I wanted to let you know I LOOOOOOVE your place. My kids and I frequent the Sugar Land location, but today I took my office administrator to your Galleria location. She LOVED the lasagne. I had the well balanced lunch (salad and cheesecake!) Since we sat right in front of you, so I was trying to maintain my composure while trying the pomogranite dressing. Okay, do you make that? Sell it? Now that we are back at the office, she is at the moment gushing about the food and desserts to everyone around. (You may need to put in more tables soon) more

Excellent pizza and service 3/28/2011

Excellent Pizza and Service. I work for Xerox and come to training in Houston on occasion and always order from you. I just wanted to say what a excellent job you do and thanks. Being in customer service I know how people will always complain but somewhow forget to say thanks when something is done right.! more

WELL worth it 3/25/2011

My office ordered pizza and I told my husband how good it was. We have ordered from you several times since and LOVE the food! Also, the online ordering is so great-what ever it is costing you-it is WELL worth it! We are in fact, waiting for an order we just placed! Just wanted to let you know how impressed we have been with your food, staff and service! Outstanding! more
