I’ll add that Grimaldi’s is good, but it now has chains everywhere so you can get a basically identical slice anywhere else.

Grimaldis, Robertas, or Johns on Bleeker. Artichoke is novelty BS. Its tasty but its not quintessential NY pizza.

My personal favorite is Lombardi’s, the oldest pizzeria in the country!  It has delicious food, as well as a fun atmosphere and a lot of history. I’ve visited without a reservation with my Fiance and it was fine. I believe it was cash only when we visited.

If you’re in Brooklyn, Di Fara is great!  But be aware that they’re open very limited hours and the wait in line can be LONG.

serendipityz:  Eh, kinda. I know what you mean about it becoming a chain. BUT it does not taste the same to me at the chain location in AZ where I visit often. As they say with the NY Bagels, must be something in the water! lol

Ew, please don’t go to Artichoke. That’s bastardized pizza for drunk NYU kids and tourists.

Joe’s on Bleeker St for a street slice, then Ben’s Pizzeria a few blocks away for the Grandma slice. Although, I think the best pizza is really in Brooklyn, not Manhattan.

Oh! I forgot that Roberta’s now has a location in Manhattan right by Grand Central. Definitely worth checking out.

Only Patsy’s. Forever and ever amen. Even thinking about it right now is making my mouth water!

I like Grimaldi’s but only the one in BK, not the one in Flatiron (I think they don’t have a coal oven in Flatiron?), Roberta’s, Patsy’s in EH (the UWS one is kind of meh), and Farinella (different from the other three and closest to Neapolitan-style pizza).

Best hole-in-the-wall slice imo: NY Pizza Sumprema. It’s really close to Penn Station. UH-MAZE-ING and cheap.

Best neopolitan style sit-down restaurant pie: Motorino’s.
