Brooklyn's Brick Oven Pizzeria serves excellent pizza which I have come to enjoy over the past 5 years. The dough, sauce, and cheese combine for a great taste experience. It's one of the few pizzas I know of that can be really great without any additional toppings. It has so much flavor that it really doesn't need anything else. If... More

It's really sad that I have to write this review, as this was my favorite restaurant. As a customer of 9 years who has dined at LEAST 3 times a month I recently had my last meal here. Dined with a party of 9 last Saturday. 5 family members woke up with food poisoning Monday morning (it takes 24 hours... More

Good pizza and salads in an upscale pizza parlor type setting. Can be a wait on Saturdays and they only take cash.

The pizza is why you come to this restaurant. The minute it leaves the brick oven it arrives at your table, steaming hot. The crust is not too thin, and has a wonderful crisp bottom. It reminded me of the type of pizza we had in Cinque Terre, which was the best pizza we ever had. The restaurant is loud... More

Brought my Mom from Upstate to check this place out, as pizza joints in Albany can really be hit and miss. This place is a lot different, as it's a traditional old school-styled pie. Beers are reasonably priced as well! The calamari which we started with was hot and fresh... no frozen junk here! I'd suggest getting this as an... More

If you like thin crust pizza , then this is the place for you . It just melts in your mouth. Remember to bring cash, as this place does not accept credit cards .

We were driving by and the husband suggested to stop there for dinner. Almost 7pm on week night. The parking lot is small. As soon as you enter there are 2 signs telling you about the "no cards" policy. It's quiet annoying, since rarely we carry money these days... Anyway, we are lucky and we have cash. The service was... More

Back in the day, before all the brick oven pizzerias began to open, this place was the go-to joint. Unfortunately it hasn't kept pace with all the newcomers. CASH ONLY? Really? Limited bar...beer & wine. Poor and slow service whenever it's busy. No reservations, limited parking, questionable sanitary practices...I can go on but the food here is good once you... More
