New York has delicious pizza! This pizza is different than any other that Ive had. The mozzarella was true mozzarella and had lots of flavor! The garlic butter knot rolls are delicious as well! A must go!

Sorry about the late answer but yes. They wait was up to 2 hours when we went on a Friday. Get there before 5 and you should be good to go!
