    Nick's is great for whole pies and the canoli

    for a change of pace try Pintail's on York & 84th designer slices with whole wheat crust

      I also agree with Nick's, very fresh, quality ingredients. I think they're better than Pintaile's personally although many like Pintaile's too (too biscuity/light for me).

      A little different, but Cavatappo Wine Bar around 89th and 2nd makes great personal pizzas with gourmet combos like prosciutto/arugula, tasty.

      For whole pies, go to Nick's on 2nd and 94th. For slices try Delizia on 2nd and 92nd.

          MiMi's is on Lex at 84th and is a great slice.

          For an excellent sit down brick-oven pie, Nick's on 2nd and 93rd is one of my favorites in the city.

            84th and Lex. One of the last, great, differentiated slices in NYC. Tastes like it did in 1976 when I moved the the neighborhood.

            Try John's Pizza on East 64th Street, just east of First Avenue. Thin crust, whole pies only. Among the best on the UES.
