Little Italy – multiple locations, NYC

by PizzaSnobo on September 27, 2011

The San Gennaro Feast may be over for this year, but Little Italy lives on! There are several Little Italy pizzerias around NYC, some related and some are not. This review focuses on the mini-chain, which opened an outpost on University Place and 13th Street, where California Pizza Oven used to be. The location has nice open seating that draws in crowds from Union Square.

The slices ($2.75) are fairly thin with a thin lip. The texture hints of Two Boots, though there is no cornmeal at Little Italy. The pizza is a little oily, but there is crunch in every bite. The sauce is sweet and there is a good sauce-to-cheese ratio. Overall, this pizza is better than average, even if the criteria for average slices has dropped over past couple of decades.

Along with the University location, there are other Little Italys scattered around the city, including one on 33rd Street, just east of Penn Station. But if you happen to be near the Union Square spot, try walking south one more block for a slice at Stromboli.
