I was excited to try this place after hearing it was a neighborhood tradition but overall it was pretty disappointing. The crust was excellent, nice crisp thin crust but the other ingredients were a mixed bag. The sauce was pretty good, if a little under-seasoned for my taste, but the cheese was seriously lacking (and I'm not one to like a ton of cheese). The pepperoni was good but the mushrooms I had added on were canned and slimy, at $4 a slice this just wasn't worth it. I think this place is riding on its reputation more than the quality of its pies

First of all, I'm not at all a fan of Totonno's. For Italianesque pizza, I got straight for Cacio e Vino's cotto e funghi pie. But Joe's tastes like childhood, tastes like my first heady trips to Manhattan...both my guy and I talk about it and crave it and go whenever we're on the West side. Never change, Joe's!

And I'll keep on moving past Joe's Pizza. This place gets rave reviews, but maybe that's from fans that like the rewarmed $3/slice pizza. The only Bleecker Street Pizza I've found that's anything like Totonno's authentic Italian wood oven is Pizza Mezzaluna.
