Although a lot has changed in this great city, including Sacco’s new granite countertops, hopefully the pizza at this Hell’s Kitchen shop is here to stay for generations to come. Don’t let the remodel fool you, Sacco is your classic old-school tiny pizza shop. A place to grab a slice and go. In an area smaller than your average food truck, four guys work behind the counter trying to keep up with demand. It is places like Sacco that reminds us why NY claims pizza champ bragging rights.

The slices ($2.50) at this well-known pizzeria are very thin and the rim of the crust snaps like a cracker. We really liked the crusts flavor, although it reminded us of eating matzah … is it kosher to place an order now for next year’s Passover? The cheese is sharper than average and goes well with the sauce and crust. The sauce is light and was used too sparingly on our pie, which gave the pizza moisture, but didn’t add enough to the flavor.

Overall, this is some of the better pizza around, especially for fans of thin crust who like only a little bit of sauce.
