And apparently they do sell pizza by the slice!
I picked up a slice and a sandwich to share for lunch. The slice was really good! I ordered it well done with sausage, onions and light jalapeno. The crust was still crisp when I got it home and I could taste the individual toppings. The sauce was flavorful but not too much or too sweet. The sandwich that I ordered is called the New Yorker and was recommended by the woman at the counter - who, by the way, bothered to engage in conversation about the restaurant and some of the ties to New York. I appreciated her attitude a lot. Back to the sandwich... the New Yorker is Ham, Mortadella, Salami, Capicolla and Pepperoni served on what I deem to be fresh french bread with lettuce, tomato, mayo, italian dressing and my addition of banana peppers. It had great flavor for which I can see that cravings will become very likely.
Good food and nice people at a very reasonable price (pizza slice + 6" sandwich was $10.50 and easily enough for two medium hungry adults
They were not very busy, but it was 2:30 or so in the afternoon on a gorgeous Sunday. Also, .a little disappointed that there is no wine or beer on the menu. I failed to ask if BYOB is acceptable.
Just ordered and devoured an18" pie...EGGSALANT, i will be returning often. This pie blows away Brooklyn Pie Co. & Saccones. Ninos crust is delicious. You know who has really crappy pizza... wait for it wait for it , here it comes here it comes...Conans! Their pizza is terrible!
Just returned from Ninos today, what a total dissappointment from last time. They had a special two toppings on a 18" for the price of a 15". The crust was way thin, nothing like last time. I than went to Reales $3 off a large and it was way better, not to mention a much heavier pie with more ingrediants.
Are you comparing this pizza with NY or what we have available around here? Did you get a slice or a whole pie?
I ask this because, once again, I've had a great pizza. I ordered well-done/crispy, meatballs, onions, green olives and 1/2 jalapeño. The price was very fair (18" for about $18 - two meals for us), and we both thought it was one of the best. Since it was in the box for a short time, I did put the box (slightly open) and all in the oven for about ten minutes at 200, as I thought it would have steamed in transit and softened the crust a bit.
We enjoy Saccone's, Rounder's, Yaghi's and Reale's ... even Rudino's for a different type... but I'm going to say that in this area, Nino's in #1 in my opinion.
I did have a chance to speak with the owner for the first time when I picked up the pizza and do agree with you that he is a nice guy.
rene to me most pizza here is fair at best. i think saccones is very oily and isnt what i call quality pizza. ill give ninos another try as he was a good guy.madolas makes a decent pizza and reales makes a decent sicilian pizza.there is a good ny forzen pizza thAT I GET IN RANDALLS THATis ny slices and taste like ny pizza.its a ny pie frozen and cut into 8 slices .
even though i've lived here for 4 years, i still haven't found the double-threat of delicious and reasonably priced pizza of my native boston.
tonight, i tried nino's and it was great-- the crust was thin and just crispy enough, the sauce had a good thickness and flavor, the cheese was copious and tasty.
my only bitch is that a "personal" size (12") was $10.50 with one topping and tax.
i guess i still need to work on re-setting my expectations, because i just can't stop thinking of pizza in MA prices.
