Note to Readers:
American Take-Out pizza, brick-oven pizzas, and even very good NY-style pizzas
(Patsy's, DiFara's, Ferdinando's & others)
are NOT authentic Italian pizza, the best of which many Italians acknowledge are found in Naples. Light crust, fresh ingredients, cooked in a very hot oven for no more than 90 seconds!! I'm serious.
What Iggie's offers IS a close approximation of that.
For example, all the dough is made with "00" flour. On the classic "Margherita" pizza they use San Marzano tomato, slices of *fresh* mozzarella and chopped basil. Someone who loves a typical "American Pie" slathered with cooked sauce and heavily-glommed with shredded mozzarella is likely to not enjoy what Iggie's is offering.
This is not to say other "style" pizzas aren't also good or tasty.
SOME are. But they are a different dish then what Iggie's is offering diners.
If that's what you know & think of as pizza, order those and don't come & complain about Iggie's.
The pies that Iggie's makes are made of high quality ingredients and are excellent.
That said, eating at Iggies is self-serve and a bit bare-bones and usually involves waiting longer than one might expect. For me, mostly that's OK and worth it for the food I get.
My biggest dissatisfactions are the cost and the service. The price of the pizza selections for the size of the portions/pies is high and can set a hungry table back a bit more than I like for an informal/casual meal.
More troubling to me is the uneven temperament of the owners, *especially* the guy who often works the oven (I think his name is Peter). Sometimes I've been there and it's been eventful and fine. But on several occasions…. Whoa! Temperaments ranging from indifference to customers, curt & abrupt treatment, to outright rudeness (especially the guy). Mostly I observed this with others, but once I was on the receiving end.
C'mon people, you are in the hospitality business.
In summary, I have been to Iggie's a number of times. I go because they make excellent Italian-style pizzas. Truthfully, I will likely also go back on occasion.
However, I go despite the shortcomings of the cost & service I noted above.
I've tried to be fair and balanced in my observations & reporting. Hope it's helpful to others.
