  1. Try John's Pizza - on 64th Street just east of 1st Ave.

      I'll agree that John's on E64 St is pretty good but Patsy's (the original) on 1st Ave at 117 Street is better.

        What's your opinion of the Patsy's on 2nd Ave & 66th or 67th St.? I've never been there, but it's usually busy and from the sidewalk tables, it look pretty good!

          I haven't been to that Patsy's at 66th but it, and all the other Patsy's have no connection to the original Patsy's at 117 Street. I got dragged to the one on Columbus Ave a few years ago and it was boring pizza. It's not bad but it's not good either.

          Try the original at 1 Ave at 117 St and also try the house salad. It feeds two and is delicious.

          We have Italian relatives in Queens who are always talking about how they want to come back into the city and go to Patsy's with us. Everyone (usually native NYers) we take there loves it.

    2. The pizza at Patsy's 66th is pretty decent. If you want to be healthy, you can try Slice. I think it's on 2nd and 72nd? I'm a big fan of Vinci's and Pintaile's.

      1. What about the great Totonno's on 2nd near 82nd(?)

        1. Patsy's on 117th is the best. Totonno's on 2nd Ave. is second. Nick's on 94th & 2nd is good, as long as you eat it there and it's fresh. They don't sell slices.

          1. RAY'S- 76th and 3rd, you wont be disappointed
