    1. Obviously this poster is new to the site, as there are many posts of recent asking about Queens------and in the spirit of chowhound, it is always good to have up to date references--so, here goes for my 2 fav's:

      #1---Rosa's Pizza on Fresh Pond Road in Ridgewood--slices and pies, garlic rolls--also pastas--BUT STICK WITH PIZZA's avoid the soups--their lousy..
      Chicken Caesar salad pizza, eggplant ricotta pizza, veggie pizza, grandma authentic with onions and tomatoes, etc, --their pizza's great and CHEAP, and HUGE slices!

      #2--Nick's Pizza for great brick oven--and great house salad--good cappacino's and decent brownic--in Forest Hills--nice atmosphere--they close fairly early--

      Nick's Pizza
      108-26 Ascan Ave, Queens, NY 11375

      Rosa's Pizza
      62-65 Fresh Pond Rd, Queens, NY 11385

        Yes brand new to the site.. Thank You for your patience !!!!!
        It's greatly appreciated as I have just been refered to this site and I love it !!!!

          Bella Via in LIC gets my vote for best pizza in Queens. Slight edge on Nick's. Vesuvio is solid if you live in Bayside and don't want to travel.

          Il Vesuvio
          39-34 Bell Blvd, Queens, NY 11361

          Bella Via
          47-46 Vernon Blvd, Queens, NY 11101

            Yes, Nick's and the cannoli is wonderful too. homemade and not filled until just before it is served

          2. I agree about Nick's--I love the ultra-thin crust and the fact that it's absolutely non-greasy.

            You can't order slices, though, nor do they deliver.

            1. I thought #1 was the Rosa's on 69th Street, off Grand Avenue?

                69th St is the place I have always heard praise of but have yet to visit..I think it's their Square that's stellar....

                1. re: King of Northern Blvd

                  There are three different squares at 69th St, classic square (sicilian), grandma, and the sfincione, a lovely little confection of tomatoes, thinsliced onions, and breadcrumbs.
                  All are awesome.

                  Rosa's Pizza
                  55-26 69th St, Queens, NY 11378

                  I've heard that the Maspeth Rosa's is good also--but Fresh Pond Rosa's is the one that is open very late, and always packed--it's not go to the Rosa's on Metropolitan--it is lousy...

                  1. re: janie

                    Rosas on 69th street is opened till like 1Am

                  2. re: MaspethMaven

                    I've been to all three Rosa's locations. The one on Grand Avenue is good, but I think there is more of a selection at the Rosa's on Fresh Pond Road. But both locations are good. TIP: Call ahead and order your pizza, that way it's ready when you enter Rosa's. Saves waiting on a huge line. Call at least 45 minutes in advance.

                  3. How bout Dedona pizza in Woodside? I don't think it's the best in Queens but it's a classic New York slice competently made by the same family for the last 20 or 30 years. Nothing fancy, no high end ingredients just good. It's on 31st Ave and 54th street.
