Angelo's Pizza...

Is there a difference between how the pies are cooked at their location on 57th and their location on 53rd? My hotel is closer to the one on 53rd but if it's worth the extra time for a better pie I'll go to the original one on 57th.

  1. No difference; although, John's is better (in my opinion..). Closest one to you is West 44th Street

      Strongly disagree with this -- Angelo's on 57th impressed me far more than midtown John's on a recent visit to the former. I'm not usually a fresh mozzarella guy, but Angelo's does it really, really well. My sausage and garlic pie was cooked perfectly.

    2. I had some of the worst pizza and service at Johns, generally I don't go to Angelo's, but in this case I recommend it.

        service i cannot speak for...always order in and NEVER had a bad pie. I do like Best Pizza on First as well.

          randomly walked by the joint and it looked really good! thin crust, nice speckled cheese topping, not an overdone ridiculous slice and fair prices. a couple was picking up their fresh pie and the thing looked divine. if anyone is in the area, have a slice, it's good.

            I only reccomend their pie with FRESH mozz.

      2. Hi , we are visiting new york first week of august 2009, although we have been twice before my wife would love to try a good new york pizza place. We are staying at the Metro Hotel near to MSG but we are staying for a week so any help from people in the know is appreciated.

            You're right near Lazarra's, but I'd go to one of the coal-oven places. My favorite for out-of-towners is Arturo's on Houston.
