Pizza Grupo-

Absolutly horrible. As of now the most overrated in the zagat which gies it a 26 rating for food. Something id expect in a pizzaria in Michigan or Upstate. Nearly as bad & also overrated-though not in Zagat guide- Brick oven piiza in Williamsburg. Everyone agree?

  1. I absolutely disagree. Pizza Gruppo is fabulous, as long as you like thin-crust pizza. All the basic, as well as many interesting, topping choices to choose from. Was this your first visit? Maybe they were having an off night...however, I have only had great experiences there as a frequent customer the past 3 years.

    1. It's quite different from other NYC style thin-crust pizza. The crust is even thinner and in fact, it's a lot more like a cracker than it is like a Grimaldi's or Lombardi's style pizza crust.

      I didn't care for it at all ... yet clearly, plenty of other people do. I doubt YoungHood was there on an off-night, it may just be a matter of personal preference regarding the cracker-like crust.

      1. Their mushroom pizza is worth the trip to the EV. Four kinds of mushrooms, drizzled with truffle oil I believe. Completely disagree with the original poster.

        1. I love the super-thin, almost-a-cracker crust. I agree with the other posters that if that's not what someone likes, they won't like this place. But I have to say that the last time I was there I got grilled eggplant on my pizza and it was disgusting--it bore no resemblance to eggplant, and it was nasty looking. I picked it all off of my pizza and left it on the plate. The server did not bother to inquire why (although, yes, I should have pointed out the disgustingness of the eggplant).

          1. Best pizzA delivered in the east village. tasty tasty tasty.
