The worst pizzerias in Brooklyn blow away anything that comes out of New Haven and Totonno's is at the top of the list. The best pizza hands down. These clowns think that pizza with sauce out of a jar is the real thing. I have heard co-workers rave about Pepe's in New Haven and went with them it was like eating at Papa Johns terrible. Stay in your second rate state with your second rate pizza leaves more of the good stuff for us.

Totonno's Pizzeria Napolitano is one of my favorite places to go. They only sell by the pie so you can't go in for just a slice. Their pizza is perfectly thin and the crust takes on that coal flavor that I really like. Your pie will be done before you know it because of the high temperature of the coal oven. This place is family owned and run so it has a lot of character.

Let's hope the guy who plans to mall over Coney Island keeps to the water and leaves Totonno and its body shop neighbors alone. Service is sweet and friendly not professional. Relax.

My husband and I are Brooklynites that have to avoid going to Totonno's every weekend in the summer (because of its Coney Island location) to spare our waistlines. I cannot believe the reviews I'm reading. First of all, the dough in Totonno's pizza is similar to an amazing artisan bread. Their sauce is incredible and not scanty by any means. The pepperoni is as good as one would taste in any fine Italian restaurant! This is by far my favorite pizza in New York-to me better than DiFara's, Lombardi's and John's on Bleeker. I must say that people who have an issue with the taste or quality of this pizza are clearly unfamiliar with quality Italian food. Go back to Connecticut you WASPS! Spoken by a passionate Italian-American!

Please open a place in Midtown and I will eat there most days! I schlepp out to the far reaches to eat at Totonno's every other week. The only place that holds a candle to Totonno's Pizza is Pizza Mezzaluna near SoHo on West Houston Street. In between, it's a desert of bad NYC greasy pizza...

Living in Manhattan and being from South Jersey I die for the beach on weekends. We go to Brighton everyweek. Clean and no problems. Leaving on Sunday we decided to try Totonnos. I have heard so much about it and afterall I was with the expert on Pizza. I dropped him off at the front of the place told him to check it out before I parked and he came to the door and said PARK THE CAR he had two thumbs up. I parked he ordered a sausage and anchovie and it came and was wonderful. He kept saying this is really the best. We kept going for another slice and ended up eating the whole pie. Great find... Loved it!!!!

My heart belong's to Grimaldi's under the Brooklyn Bridge, but Totonno's is every bit as good. The perfect way to end a summer day at the beach in Coney Island is sitting with friends in not quite dry bathing suits and knocking off a pie or two with a couple of beers. Pure Heaven!

Totonno's does not sauce the crust before adding the cheese. This was the first tip off that something was different. The sauce was lightly spooned over the numerous thin disks of melted, Brooklyn-made, fresh mozz. The crust was delightfully thin and crisp, yet yielding, and a bite near the crusty edge carried a light brush of mellow olive oil. Sally's and Pepe's have their charms, but this pie is the real deal, with toppings perfectly balanced to the thinness of the charming, charred crust. Totonno's recipe and technique clearly owe much to Lombardi's on Spring, where the original Totonno worked before he opened his own shop. So if you like Lombardi's--and I do--you will enjoy Totonno's as much, if not more. I'll return if I am in Coney Island, but not as a destination. There are other great, if different, ovens available closer to my digs. There was a brief wait for a table with other pleasant parties. Lots of kids. A regular, mixed race and class crowd, with blessedly few hipsters. I take off a point for the lack of fountain sodas. A can of diet Dr. Pepper just does not cut it. Draft beer and fountain sodas would do these pies more justice.

I agree with the people here regarding their negative reviews. Crust as thin as a tortilla, blobs of tasteless cheese in sauce that is in serious need of help. That about sums it up. I am finding it more and more difficult to find a really delicious pizza. These coal fired oven do give the crust a nice crispy flavor with hints of smokiness. However, this method of cooking the pie will not put it over the top so to speak. I'll continue my search for a better pie. I'll also try New Haven CT as one member here suggests.
