The holy grail of the rare thin-crust Sicilian-style slice.

30-13 Steinway St., Queens, NY, 11103



Known For

The lowdown

Though the thick-and-doughy school of Sicilian pizza reigns supreme in Manhattan, the opposing thin-and-crisp camp still has a foothold in the outer boroughs. The holy grail of this rarefied style is at this unassuming pizzeria, where sophisticated restraint shows in a minimal toss of cheese, allowing the zingy sauce to shine through. And the crust is unique: light and tender, about a quarter-inch thick, with a crunchy, toasty, golden raised edge.
