Pizzanista, formerly Toddy G's is making really really great pizza

NY style with some premium ingredients and a premium price tag. Garage pizza and 9th street are good pies but Pizzanista is the best in downtown and is by far my new fav pizza in the city. I was once a slave to the Chicago thin crust style, "Casa Bianca" style pizza but this has officially converted me.

  1. Good to hear they're still churning out good pie even after the brouhaha. If price is a concern, they're still in cahoots with Tony's and doing a slice/beer HH before 7pm, while Tuesdays are $2? slice days. That's almost as cheap as NYC which has its pick of Baker's Bakers pies in every neighborhood.

    FWIW, Casa Biana (& Petrillo's) was always just 1 step above Dominoes for me.

    1. Pizza here is just ok. I'm not crazy about it. Much better choices around.

        Around? Surely you jest? There's nothing "around" except Church & State and the al pastor spit across the street.

          I tried Urbano in the summer...pretty tasty but surely not worth heading downtown for.

            that al pastor spit is a LEGIT taco spot. Id take Pizzanista over Garage any day.

        2. I live within walking distance and once I finish my no-carb regime, I'll be back in a second. I love the place. And you can get day old cold slices for $1.Perfect for the morning after the night before breakfast.
