Really, really BAD SERVICE

  • No, I would not go back!

Wanna eat in a place where they don't care about you? Then you have to eat at Nick's Pizza! Get ready to deal with moody employees, waiters demanding a 20% tip regardless of the service, restaurant policies no one can comprehend (you can't switch seats, can only receive condiments if you purchase specific food items and you have to pay your bill in cash). This place is a riot if you are thinking about writing a book on how NOT to treat your customers!

Great pizza, good atmosphere. A little pricy, but no more than the other "special" pizza restaurants in the city.

They're Movin' On Up

Tried the new Upper Eastside branch and was pleasantly surprised.Varied menu of thoughtful items starring excellent sauce and superior pizzas. Advertised as "family style portions", you might think otherwise. Eggplant needs more thorough cooking and that highly tauted cannoli is a superb, light as air, crispy shell marred by a paste-like, thick filling of questionable origin. The accommodating staff compensate for any flaws.

Hands-Down My Favorite NYC Pizza Place

I've been a customer since Nick's opened. Over the years, the pizza has been consistently excellent in all respects - crust and toppings. The starter salads are also very tasty and well-sized. Service is friendly and, maybe sometimes, overly solicitous. A nice, clean, well-lit place with excellent pizza. Not to be missed as well is their plain cheese-only calzone: served flat after a quick saute', this is as authentically Neapolitan as one will find outside of Italy (not an exaggeration).

Nick's Pizza makes you feel like you are dining in a little cafe in Italy.
