Best - Pizza - Ever.

Well, within a 2 minute walk from my apartment at least. Actually, it IS one of the best I have had with some rare exceptions here and there. And I AM lucky that its a 2 minute walk to my home. To those who enjoy the tastes, I say, "me too!" To the sourpusses who fervently type on their laptops when they should be fixing that toothache, ummm. get a life? Hope you didnt pay too much to get here? Umm, you got a better place within 2 minutes of my home? No? Didnt think so! Kudos to Nicks Pizza. I go there with my Japanese girlfriend who loves it. Especially the fresh garlic on the pizza. Yoko-chan's always right.

Rude Service, Burnt Pizza

  • No, I would not go back!

Yes, the crust should be charred, but not black, and the sun-dried tomatoes should not be burned without recognition, the mozzarella should not be boiling, and I should not be tasting ash when I take a bite. When I told the waiter (who tried to ignore my signal that I wanted to talk to him) that the pizza was burned and not acceptable, he rudely replied, "I don't make the pizza," and told me to stop yelling (believe me, I wasn't, he was). We ended up walking out, choosing to go to a pizza place that doesn't rely on reviews like yours for customers they can berate.

Nick's Pizza--Still the best

I have always found management to be friendly and the staff to be reasonably accommodating (though with some peccadilloes like that lemon thing another writer refers to). But you go here for pizza and putting down the service is just being churlish (and wrong--the service is usually friendly and warm--only when they get truly crazed do they get a little brusque). There is no better pizza in the NY area. The crust is thin and crisp, with a slightly salty tang, the cheese is fresh and plentiful (I recommend doubling it) and the sauce actually has flavor you can taste. Unfortunately, it doesn't travel well (for takeout), which is probably why they don't deliver. But careful reheating can revive it to almost, but not quite, like new

No Lemon?

The calzone is great! Pizza crust is the best. However, when I asked for a lemon with my water the waiter returned saying, "I'm sorry but my manager just told me that I can't give you a lemon with non-sparkling water." Really?

Nice good pizza for the money. There is a branch on Long Island where I go. Satisfies the need when I get a pizza fix. Overall a very good pie for the value

Nick's house salad is simply incredible. The pizza is delicious and filling -- even if, like me, you can't have cheese. My waiter was quite personable.

Bad Attitude

The pizza here is excellent, as are the dessert and selection of beer. The Service needs serious improvement, this is one of those places where they make you feel like they are doing you a favor by allowing you to eat in their restuarant. Also dont expect to get a things after closing, even if your getting something quick to go and there restaurant is half full, the economy isnt at its best and this place is turning business away at 9:50 on a thursday. Better off going to Dee's Pizza on Metropolitan, at least they appreciate your patronage there

Possibly the best FOOD I've ever tasted. It's an out-of-body experience. Indescribable. Worth the trip on the E/F train if you're not living in Queens. You have to taste it to believe it. Also - before you get your pizza, get a calzone as an appetizer - so fresh, so hot, so cheesy and delicate - just do it.
