Totonno’s is temporarily closed.

In 1924, Calvin Coolidge won a presidential election, Marlon Brando was born, and Totonno’s opened in Coney Island. And, after 90+ years, they still make an extremely good coal-oven pizza. The spot was originally opened by someone who worked at NYC’s first-ever pizza place, Lombardi’s, in Nolita. His family (mainly his granddaughters Cookie and Antoinette) still runs the show with just two menu items: small and large pies. The crust leans on the thinner side, and each pizza comes covered in equal parts cheese and tomato sauce, almost like a red-and-white leopard print. Just be sure to eat your pizza quickly, because the crust won’t stay crispy forever. This is, of course, a metaphor for life, and it’s yet another thing this old-school place in Coney Island has to offer.

Totonno Pizzeria Napolitana review image


It’s all about the crust out here. Thin, crispy, and charred in all the right places. Pies don’t come cheap ($21 for an eight-slice large) but the homemade mozzarella and fresh dough are well worth the splurge. We’re partial to the plain, but you also can’t go wrong by adding a few toppings here.
