Anyone Tried the Totonno's on Tuckahoe Road?

Is this outpost of the Brooklyn original up to the Brooklyn standard? Should we stick to the pizza? Any other recommendations from the menu? Thanks!!

    Pizza is good but the place is really, truly odd. Tucked into a third rate Ramada Inn that you sort of don't want to walk into, it's a big, sprawling place with a customer base that appears to have been torn from the pages of a Stephen King novel. Got there 7 pm on a Friday night, were told that we were lucky because "the best band in the Bronx" were setting up to play. We were in fact lucky, since we left before they started. But, still, the pizza was good. And it certainly was an interesting experience.

      We tried to go the other night, but couldn't get past the Holiday Inn feel to it. What an odd place to put great pizza!

        I'm not sure if any of the Totonno's outposts measures up to the original (There's one on the Upper East Side too.), but I'd definitely stick to the pizza! They have a half margarita-half white pie that's delicious. Nice & thin and good char at the crust.

          I liked it. The drinks were very good, the service was nice, and there's no 'uppity' feel to the place. Oh, and they don't rush you!!!

          We've been there twice and the pizza was excellent.

            I am originally from Brooklyn and have been to the original many times. I was very excited when one opened in Yonkers. The pizza is pretty close to the original. The decor is very tacky, but in a funny kind of way...christmas lights all year round. We went on a Friday night,.. there was some crazy lounge band playing and lots of 60-70+ year old couples dancing. They really took the dancing VERY seriously. It was cute to watch. Lol.
