        Roma on 7th and Berkeley in Park Slope. An outstanding neighborhood slice.

          Agree on Roma. Especially the fresh mozzarella slice.

          When I lived in Sheepshead Bay it varied from V&S, Villa Bay , Pete's (on Coney Island Ave) or a long walk to Spumoni Gardens or Totonnos.
          When I lived in Park Slope it was Roma on 7th Av.
          Now in Bay Ridge, I have too many options--Nino's (3rd Ave), Pete's, Grandma's, Gino's, Vesuvio, Pizza Wagon....it all depends on where I am at any given time or whether I have cash or need to pay by credit.

            Good choices for BR, though I think Pizza Wagon is overrated. I'd also add Elegante on 5th Ave . :-)

            I used to live in CG and Vinny's was my absolute fav: grandma slice and an eggplant.

                  Am around various areas in queens, and tend to go to Graziella's in Bayside/Whitestone area for Grandma, L'angola? I think that's their name, on Metropolitan ave in Kew Gardens, on a corner, for reg slice or eggplant, and Rosa's on Fresh Pond Road--for lots of good choices and the best garlic knots--but the best slice ever, in any neighborhood, excluding Difara--for me, is the long stemmed artichoke slice I had recently at Full Moon Pizza on 187 and Arthur Ave, in the Bronx fantastic cornmeal crust--make sure they don't overheat the slice or it will be ruined, try to get the slice just as it comes out of oven, pure perfection.

                    Full Moon is fantastic, definitely the best slice on Arthur. Tino's ain't bad if you've got a hankering and 089, which has met some mixed praise on Chow, is pretty good too.

                    Try Full Moon's Spinach slice.

                      I did have the spinach, it's good--- but the artichoke is completely transcendent...I am still thinking about it....perfection.
