I dont know if you want ANOTHER place in Sheepshead Bay but, for a SLICE, not just a slice (!) you might want to try my favorite place (for eat-in AND home delivery) - V&S ITALIAN KITCHEN & PIZZERIA - 1723 Emmons Avenue - Bklyn NY 11235 - 718-332-7300. I am what my friends call a "pizza snob". I know what I like & I could be starving but refuse to eat inferior pizza! V&S has GREAT SAUCE! Crust is thin (has to be for me!). And the view from outside is nice (across from the Bay!). I know you are not going to "eat" but their heros kick butt too! And I am NOT an owner or have an interest in the place---the only interest is getting my order correct! Your walking tour sounds great---hope you have a great time & eat some great slices! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! Diane from Coney Island NY PS: Could you stop by my place with some DiFara's on your way? I have never been there--except in my dreams! LOL and I dont get the raves for L&B Spumoni Gardens?? I have had their food a few times--I am not impressed!

Thanks Babysmom - I live in Manhattan Beach and have known V & S since they opened,
my wife's favorite but I like Del Mar - do get to DiFara (who has reopened after being closed for health violations) - I think they are a bit too heavy with the oil but you should make up your own mind.
I heard a rumor that Di Fara was closed. Confirm before you go. If you do decide to try Lucali be aware that they are not open for lunch. Only Dinner.
L&B Spumoni is classic and different. A must on my pizza tour.
If there are several people on the walking tour why not hit the "no slice" places.

I agree with Motosport, try some pies while you're at it. Grimaldi's pies come out in less than 5 minutes but the problem is the line of tourists. In Bay Ridge, Gino's at 7414 5th Ave and Vesuvio's 7305 3rd Ave are decent. Although Vesuvio's does a much better job on their personal pies.

I organized a "party bus" pizza tour for my 60th birthday. I wanted to hit as many pizza joints in Brooklyn and Manhattan as we could in a day.
My plan was to call ahead and order the pies to go to save time. Our first scheduled noon stop was Grimaldi's. I called for 20 minutes and no one even picked up the phone. Not even an answering machine. I wondered if they were open. Of course there was a huge line of pizza worshippers from all over the USA. I was able to go in right away and order the pies to go. It still took over an hour to get 3 pies!!! Yikes!! We ate in the park by the river. The pizza was very good but I.M.H.O. not worth the grief and wait.
On the other hand when we called Tottonno's in Coney Island to place our order. They said: "we'll hold three tables for you!!!!" Excellent pizza too!!
