Location is important. This Little Italy Pizza happens to be on 45th Street and midtown, which certainly helps maintain the steady flow of customers. This Little Italy is not part of the Little Italy chain, or other Little Italy spots you might find in the city.
Slices ($2.75) are of the thinner variety, with a chewy, savory crust that does not have much crunch. There is plenty of cheese, browned on top – too much gooeyness, in fact. We could have done with a little more sauce, which was a little sweet but very pleasant. It’s oily pizza, but definitely does the trick.
Little Italy on 45th Street is the kind of place that used to more ubiquitous; a casual shop that serves pizza and Italian food. No salad bar. No deli counter.
