The vodka pie at Joe & Pats is one of the best pizzas you can eat in this city. Due to the thinness of the crust here, you probably don’t want to get more than one additional topping on any one pie, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It means you can eat more pizza, which you will inevitably want to do here. If you don’t live in Staten Island, this place alone is worth the trip.

Finally, someone figured out that an Italian restaurant near Penn Station that serves food people want to eat would do well.
Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.
Coco Pazzo is the new Soho version of an Italian restaurant that was big in the ’90s.

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.
