Gloria pizza heads that think Amore pizza are the same owners?

  • s

Im sorry to say but I keep reading how everybody thinks that the Amore pizza shop in the pathmark mall in Whitestone are the same owners as the infamous Gloria's pizza that was once on Main st.

They are not!

Amore is Amore

Gloria was Glorias and will never be touched!

Amores pizza cant/wont even touch Gloria's pizza in anyway.

sorry guys.

ps: its the facts, go ask the ol man in Amore.

  1. Ah...the memories of Gloria's pizza!! I still miss it.
    Always stopped by for a slice on my way home from high school. It really was a great slice...the sauce and cheese were perfect.

      Descendents of Gloria Pizza own La Vera on Hillside Ave. in New Hyde Park. Good round slices but no squares like Gloria.....

        I tried La Vera disgusting. If that was Gloria's your sadly mistaken. Amore's is Gloria's. Talk to the old man and his two sons. Even Blue Eyes the pizza guy whos been with family for 25 years worked at Glorias as a kid. The old lady is gone but her pizza lives on thru her family. Maybe Glorias was better cuz of nostalgia or better ingredients at that time in the 70s. Pizza and Chinese food was better in NYC from the 50s-80s. Long live Lum's and Gloria's. Flushing food icons....

          LaVera is disgusting? Hardly. What would you consider good pizza?

          Amore's and LaVera are VERY similar in taste. The atmosphere in Amore's is like an OTB...depressing and ugly. LaVera is very pleasant. (plus I can get my car washed at Five Corners across the car wash on the Island)

          I consider most Manhattan pizza to be disgusting...gross slices that sit like congealed pieces of drek, waiting to be warmed up after sitting for an hour.

            Thank you Afikoman, this is John Jr. the owners son speaking on behalf of La Vera. I can assure you that all our recipes our those that come from Glorias Pizza on Main street. We try to keep a nice ambience in the restaurant and surely Five Points is the best car wash in the tristate. Every Sunday for the football season our 18" large pies are going for $10.99, and no that is not a typo. Cheaper than anyone around here. Thanks!

      I was just reporting what the guy behind the counter said. The pizza is very good and that is the most important thing. Personally, I liked Gloria but never thought it was some kind of hallowed ground. It was good pizza that brings back nice memories of days gone by.
