Denino’s isn’t fancy. It’s just a big, plain sit-down pizza spot on Staten Island, and when you stop by, there will probably be a bunch of kids in soccer uniforms shouting about things like video games or cartoons or whatever it is kids shout about nowadays. But the pizza is still exceptional. The crust is thin, the pizzas are the ideal size where you know you wouldn’t feel well if you ate a whole one, and the clam pie is the perfect beginners version for anyone who is skeptical of clam pies. You will leave having consumed several pitchers of domestic beer, and wishing Denino’s were closer to your house.

Emily not only has some of the best pizza in the city, it’s also got one of the best burgers. That means you should probably get there soon.
Speedy Romeo LES
A smaller, very casual Lower East Side outpost of Brooklyn’s Speedy Romeo. They may be known for pizza, but that’s not the best thing here.
Suggested by our writers
Roberta’s is the most important pizza joint in New York City, and this commune of Brooklyn culture only gets better with age.
It can be annoying to deal with an unpredictable situation, but for pizza this good, we’re willing to deal with it. Brooklyn's Lucali is incredible.
Di Fara Pizza
Brooklyn's Di Fara is the best slice of pizza in New York, and worth every bit of the $5 and 30 minutes of waiting that it will cost you.
