NY style Pizza in seattle? YES!


As a native New Yorker, I was hopeful when I first tried Piecora's Pizza. The Capitol Hill establishment has a sign featuring the Statue of Liberty and proclaiming NY-style pizza....

Okay pizza, not worth the attitude 3/22/2009

Went there tonight with a friend and ordered half combo, half blue cheese and onion pizza. We got the half combo...the other half never came. When the waiter checked on us, I told him we never received the other order. He walked away. Later came back with the bill, and I mentioned (again), that we never received the other half of our order. His response was: "Well, we didn't charge you for it". And that I was "too nice" to get it. My take is that they didn't want to make it, didn't make it, and the waiter totally blew us off. Piecora's is not the only game in town; I won't be back. more

Beer and Pizza 3/30/2006

If you are looking for the ever elusive “New York Style” pizza in Seattle, then this may be as good as it gets. The pizza is pretty darn good, in that thin crusted, stripped down New York way. More importantly though, this place is as much a good dive bar as it is a pizza place, which makes it a really good hangout. more

Close to New York.. 12/25/2005

OK, they are more than close, but they just don't have as firm a crust. That is, you can't snap the crust of a slice at in the middle and then have the grease drip out the back. In any case, its pretty good pizza. Not the fancy kind like California Pizza Kitchen or kind of west coast like Pagliacci, but pretty good. Parking there can be a little tricky but its a great neighborhood place. more

Surly like a stereotypical New Yorker times 10 12/5/2005

So this review is a tough one to write. I love the pizza here. Having spent months in New York surviving on pizza, I can say Piecora's does a pretty great job (although the crust is so-so compared with the rest of it). The only thing is... well, the service is hit or miss. Generally hit-or-miss service is not a deal-breaker for me, but when "hit-or-miss" identifies service that involves swears uttered under the host's breath, being seated at a table void of servers and then receiving your pizza from the kitchen cook an hour after everyone around you has, a deal breaker it becomes. Months ago, a group of friends and I went to Piecora's and received the awful treatment noted above. Although the host later weakly apologized (claiming it had been a rough night), I don't know that any of the drama was warranted; the restaurant staff's anger resulted from my switching a delivery order to a dine-in when a) the pizza had not yet finished and b) when I called to ask if this would cause any inconveniences, the person who answered the phone told us that would be OK. Apparently the person who answered was not qualified to respond to my request, said the waiter. Huh. Regardless of where the breakdown of communication happens at Piecora's, I left feeling awful. Outside of that rough experience, I've had a few attentive waiters and the rest average. Want a consummate dining experience? I'd head somewhere else. more

youll feel like youre in new york 10/22/2005

if you've ever had real new york style pizza, and you go here, you're about to have it again, only thing is you're in seattle, and you can't believe that new york style pizza tastes even better here. the atmosphere is very relaxed. this is a great family restaurant, but also great for groups of friends, or even a cute place to go with that special someone. staff are super polite, and helpful at making suggestions. tip well! this will be the best pizza you ever eat! more

Piecora's NY Pizza- One of the greatest in Seattle 10/1/2005

Piecora's is by one of the best pizza places in Seattle. You can chose between either individual slices, halfs or whole pizzas. After a long drunken night at any of the clubs around the area, this is the place you need to stop in and get a slice. They are big and hearty peices and they leave you yearning for more. more

New York Pizza? Not Quite... 9/29/2005

As a native New Yorker, I was hopeful when I first tried Piecora's Pizza. The Capitol Hill establishment has a sign featuring the Statue of Liberty and proclaiming NY-style pizza. Sadly, it just doesn't make the cut. Although the crust, toppings, and cheese are right on, the sauce is too bland. They need to adjust the seasoning of their sauce; until then it just doesn't meet NY standards. In the meantime, for NY-style pizza try Hot Mama's on Pine street. In the 10+ years that I've lived in Seattle, Hot Mama's is the closest thing I've found the pizza I once enjoyed as a New Yorker. more

All the Flavor, None of the Taste 9/25/2005

I was convinced to checkout Piecora's pizza through a number of websites where people seemed to think their NY Pizza was the best pizza in Seattle. Finding myself on a saturday night watching baseball, i'd be stupid not to order pizza, so Piecora's beat out a few known champs and got my business. When I called, the person on the phone was friendly and sounded to be either from NY or Boston. Check. Inside, the atmosphere was very cool with people crowded around tables and in booths and an upstairs balcony section to boot. Check. Finally, the place smelled great. Check. But when we got the pizza back to my place and opened it up, I was immediately wary. Something was off, and while I couldn't consciously figure out what it was, I knew I would find out soon. It took me a couple bites of mild enjoyment to realize that for Piecora's Pizza and Pasta (The pasta might very well be fantastic) the "NY Style" comes in the cheese. The cheese was greesy and delicious, and separated easily from the dough, drawing similarities to many cheap, large slice pizza places in the Big Apple. The dough/crust, however, was the problem. It was crisp and tasteless and lacked the general "pizza dough" nuance that I was looking forward to. Obviously, at first I thought I was crazy and needing another stint at Pizza Addicts Anonymous (AKA The Gym), but my suspicion was echoed a couple minutes later from across the table (let's be honest, we were eating on the floor in front of the television...). Overall, I think Piecora's is a decent pizza that will do the trick in a tight spot, but I would not venture takeout pizza from there again unless baseball was to be had and pizza was needed stat. more

Best NY Pizza in Seattle 8/23/2005

Piecora's NY is the best New York style pizza in Seattle. The thin crust, texture of the dough, seasoning of the sauce, and olive oil and cheese are done just right. The combos and toppings are authentic to NY style too (as opposed to the yummy but out there yuppie combinations common to Seattle and California). The restaurant combines an appealingly low key location with a very Seattle tattooed and pierced. Most baked dinner entrées are good too. more

Great pizza - sometimes 8/21/2005

Piecora's New York Pizza unfortunately is pretty hit or miss. Sometimes the pizza actually tastes like a slice from New York, other times the pizza is very undercooked and doughy. This has really turned me off recently. I suggest asking for your pizzas to be well done to ensure a proper crust. The standard pizza is a great value, but they get you on drinks, toppings, and salads. more

yummy pizza 8/16/2005

Every afternoon I walk by Piecora's on my way home to make dinner, and it's always a temptation to just slip inside for a quick slice. Piecora's makes an excellent pie. their restaurant reminds me of the pizza places I ate in as a kid, white and red checked table cloths, fountain soda, neon and parmesan and pepper flakes on each table. It's a great place to get together with friends. The calzones are huge and delicious as well. more

New York Pizza 7/2/2005

This is probably your best pizza in Seattle. They also deliver. The restaurant itself has an energetic atmosphere and is a good place to stop for a bit at any time of the day or night. The non-pizza food is so-so at best, but then again, this IS a pizza place. Only one size pizza is availble (though slice or half sizes can be purchased) more

Pizza is so so, delivery sucks 6/7/2005

I come from Chicago, so I am not really a huge fan of NY pizza in the first place, but hey, you gotta roll with the punches. I still know a good pizza when I eat one, and these pizza's are ok, but nothing special. If you live in Cap hill, don't get them delivered. 3 times in a row, the pizzas came to us all messed up (toppings askew), and on the colder side. I don't know if anyone else has had that experience, but I don't eat there or get pizza delivered anymore. more

NY pizza stays in state 5/1/2005

If you are looking for New York pizza, then go to the Ray's Pizza on the corner of 6th and 12th in Manhattan. We all want it to, but it doesn't exist here. Anywhere. Sometimes if you go long enough after eating at a pizzeria, you might remember it as NY-ish. I did that last night. I swore I remembered having a NY-worthy slice at Piecora's. I thought about it all week. I made my girlfriend make a special trip with me. I got two slices of cheese and they were positively ... floppy. They got the greasy cheese, but not the crispy crust that makes NY pizza. Also the sauce was tasteless. So Piecora's is fine. It's not NY. Frankly, I think Pagliacci is more NY. But nothing here really fits the bill, so I've stopped trying. Piecora's really doesn't stand on anything but being NY-like. I would go instead for pizza that is good on its own merits. more

Great New York Style Pizza 3/16/2005

Having moved to Seattle from New York, I was initially dismayed by the lack of pizzerias making good NY Style Pizza. However, I have found one place that truly qualifies as a good NY Style pizzeria, Piecora's Pizzeria on E. Madison on Capital Hill. With puffy outer crust, tapering to a thin, crisp middle, topped with lots of great tomato sauce and an abundance of cheese, Piecora's pizza has found a solid formula. While it is not Ray's in NY, it is the closest thing I have found in Seattle. While I usually get Piecora's to takeout, they have a restaurant with salads, beers on tap, etc. It is sometimes a bit smoky for my tastes. more
