Best Pizza Slice in Midtown

  1. Preference for east or west midtown?
    IMHO the best pizza in midtown west is Zigolini's, a relatively new place with great Neapolitan pizzas. It's admittedly a step below some downtown spots, but I think their crust in particular has continually improved and they are nearing the quality of some of the best in the city. The prosciutto is particularly good.

      Just realized you were asking for a slice, so assume you want a place that sells by the slice specifically? If so, there is a Two Boots location in Hells Kitchen and in Grand Central if you like a nontraditional slice. Haven't had much success with other slice spots in midtown.

        Second NY Pizza Suprema. Best slice in Midtown without question.

          Sunk plenty of money in those adjacent parking garages over the years and NEVER thought of stopping in that pizza shop EVER. Gonna check it out now for sure -- especially after seeing the banner that's proudly displayed above their storefront touting ... "Awarded, One of the 10 Best Pizzas in NYC".

          1. re: Cheese Boy

            The upside down is great, as is the marinara and basil. And of course, the regular old plain cheese is very good.

            1. re: thegforceny

              absolutely agree. the Upside Down is spectacular. it's a bit of a sicilian feel, the crust is light and crunchy, just perfect.

      2. Patsy's, but it ain't Midtown...

          And do they serve slices? OP is looking for MIDTOWN. SLICE. (See above)

        2. Previti's Pizza on 41st and Lex does an okay slice, I prefer their foccacia slices.

          And Royal Pizzeria on 38th and 3rd does a decent slice if it's fresh out of the oven.

          Midtown pretty much sucks for slices though, it's not to good for whole pies either.

            +1 on Royal especially if it's fresh out of the oven.

          2. Naples 45, at 45h between Lex and Venderbilt. Make sure you get it when it is hot. Very thin, nicely blistered, good quality sauce and mozzarella cheese.

              They serve by the slice at Naples 45?

              1. re: RCC

                Just had 2 today, it's in the take out section which is not easily accessible from the street.

                And my pizza @ 11:15 was barely room temperature.
