We've been in the neighborhood for 9 years and recently started going to A NY Pizza place out of convenience even though the food isnt the greatest - but we'll never go back after we met the owner tonight. He got every single thing on our order wrong and acted like we were an inconvenience when we asked him to bring us the correct order - he never once apologized even when he forgot to place our pizza order and we had been waiting almost an hour, or when he overcharged us for our order. The clincher came when he told me i didn't tip enough and that i should just take my tip back (i had tipped 12% which was generous given the extremely poor service. )He also made a statement about not making enough money for all of this ""sh*t"" before going on about how different things are going to look soon (what?). I said don't care what he makes - and expect to be treated with respect at a minimum regardless. Personally i don't make enough to take my family out to dinner and be treated like that. I feel a little bad - maybe he is bi-polar or severely depressed, but his behavior was outrageous to say the least - all that and the food isn't more than mediocre. You're better off spending $50 at Pizza Hut....

I moved here from Brooklyn. It took me 2 months to find a decent slice and NYPP is the real thing! All the downtown places advertising NY pizza are in complete denial. Before anyone pitches a fit about this place or that place- I've tried them. I had 10 different pizzas from 10 different places before finding what I wanted. And as a new yorker I guarantee that this is as close to NY pizza as you can get 3500 miles to the west. The slices are huge- and served by the slice- just like they are back home. Calzones are also quite nice but when I drive up I'm there for the pizza.
Go try some real NY style pizza.

I have two vices in my life...pasta and pizza. And finding good pizza is a hard thing to do. I have lived in the area now for almost 9 years. And one day, coming home from the U district, we drove my this hole in the wall with bright red signs talking about NY pizza. My family is from New York and its hard to come by around these parts. After driving by a few times, we finally went in. For two pints of beer and a ""Godfather"", it was money well spent. We took my dad and uncle who had flown in from the East coast and they loved it. We've recommended it to my husbands best friend, and he called with a slice in his mouth and said we were right. You cannot and should not drive by without going in for a slice or even your own pie. You will be happy you did.

My wife & I moved from metro NYC 30+ years ago. We had found A New York Pizza Place when the original owners opened in downtown Seattle which quenched our need for great pizza. We lost track of the best pizzas in the Northwest, maybe east of the Delaware River, when the original place closed! We found it again several years ago, thanks to a review in the Seattle Times and we returned as customers. We travel 60 miles roundtrip for one of their pizzas about once or twice a month (carbs keep us from more often trips). Doug and his entire wait-staff are friendly, attentive and efficient. My wife & her sister share the house salad since neither could finish it alone (in addition to pizza). We always order the largest pizza usually half cheese & half pepperoni.
CON: No iced tea.

My girlfriend Mary and I visit this place enough to know the owner Doug. While new to the business he has got a good thing going and is working to make it better. Pizza you can have your way and hot subs (especially the meatballs) that are just fantastic. The furniture is nice and old as is the stuff on the walls that reminds me of home. Wine is good. Beer pulls fine. The dough twists at Whole Foods are his too! The TV on top of the soda refrigerator is just perfect. Joe

It was better when, I think, there was the original owner. Fresh pies are still decent, but avoid the slices, they've sat around and the cheese is chewey and the crusts have turned dull. Spagetti and meatballs is decent with a bright-tasting sauce, but very ""American"" style though, with fat spagetti that has been cooked past al dente. The garlic bread you get with the pasta is pathetic, though, stale French bread spread with nasty margarine and garlic salt.

I agree with everyone who has positive things to say about this place. When you walk in you would never expect to get the value that you get. This pizza is SO good. I often stop in with my employees and buy them pizza from this joint. They love it and it is a great reward for all of us! It is halfway between where we work and live so it is a nice place to eat while we wait for traffic to slow down. I have never been to New York but I cannot imagine that the pizza in New York would better than this. I was just there today and ready to eat the rest of my ""pie"" right now!!!!

The best pizza in Seattle! The service is fast and friendly and the sauce is great. We recently moved back to Seattle from the east coast and after several failed attempts to find a good pizza we found ""A New York Pizza Place"". We've been hooked ever since. Thanks to Doug & co. for consistantly delivering a great pizza.

I live in Mukilteo and I drive to A New York Pizza Place for this pizza. It is THE best pizza that I have had in Washington. I met Doug about a year ago the first time I went in and he was so nice. The service is awesome! I think everyone should try it!

On a recent vacation to Seattle we visited this pizza restaurant which was came highly recommended by some friends of ours. We certainly were not disapointed. My wife and I along with our four kids met the owner Doug and were given the grand tour. It's a small place so the tour didn't last long but the great service did. The staff was very gracious and gave my kids a lesson in tossing pizza dough. The food was great starting with the house salad which could have been a meal in itself. We ordered the ""Whitey Ford"" and the ""Godfather"". My kids are very picky when it comes to pizza and crust. When we left the restaurant they said to me it was the best pizza they have ever had. I have to admit my kids were right.

I've been to quite a few Seattle pizza joints, having lived all around a few neighborhoods. This is, bar none, the best pizza place in Seattle, and I haven't had anything like it since I lived on the east coast. The owner is a great guy, remembers his customers, and helps them quickly and with a laugh. The food is great, whether by the slice or for a whole pie, and it feels like a hometown pizza place. Absolutely fantastic.

So glad a GREAT pizza place opened up in the Ngate area. When we order pizza, we definitely go to a New York Pizza place. The best pizza Ive ever tasted!!!!! Great service, great for family's and groups (small and large). A bit noisy if you are looking for somewhere quite to hang out.

Seattle never had a great tasting pizza yet, until I tried A New York Pizza Place. Let me tell you, this is quite close to NYC style/taste. I was born in NY, Queens(Elmhurst) and I can say this gets my Pizza Approval!
I'm not big on toppings, I always order the cheese pie, but they do offer a good range of toppings.
As far as prices go, they are ooook, but I feel they should lower everything about $1-$2.
The owner is very friendly and will greet you no matter if you're an old customer, or a newbie 8)
The parking is not too convenient, since it's all street parking, and the neighboring roads are extremely narrow, but you'll find a spot regardless.
For a great time at a rustic(in a good way) pizza joint, look no further.
Pizza and beer, 'nuff said.

If you are from the east coast you will love this pizza! It has a nice thin crispy crust, sauce that actually tastes of tomato, and cheese with that oh so yummy olive oil sheen. My husband and I are both native Bostonians -- this pie was the best we've had in Seattle and we'll be back! Plus the staff, Carlos and Marta, are so nice.

When I reviewed this place several years ago, I felt that it was the best New York Style pizza place in Seattle. Time has passed. The ownership has changed. The prices have gone up. The quality has gone down, and the atmosphere isn't what it once was either. Now I regret to say that if you want to have good New York style pizza, you should go to Piecora's.
The New York ownership has been replaced by Arizona ownership, and apparently they don't appreciate the value of a good quality AFFORDABLE pizza. There is simply no excuse for charging $16 for a large PLAIN pizza. I thought maybe I'd lost touch since I've been away from the east coast for awhile. But I was just back there, and the large cheese from most local shops in Boston is still in the $6-$8 range. So the story about ""cheese prices going through the roof"" (which is what the owner told me) just doesn't hold water.
The authentic New York sports memorabilia has been replaced with cheesy (no pun intended) generic sports stuff that just doesn't compare. The quality of the food is variable. Sometimes the pizza is great, though I have often encountered undercooked pizzas, and more recently I've had several pizzas that have almost NO cheese on them (I guess for a normal amount of cheese we should pay $20 per pizza?).
So for a variety of reasons, I'm giving a thumbs down to this place. I'd furthermore like to note that I once tried to engage in a polite discussion with the new owner regarding the cost of pizzas, and he quickly became defensive and belligerent - so much for treating customers with respect. Maybe he thought that authentic New York attitude would be a substitute for authentic New York Pizza. Anyway, sad to say that I'll finally not return to this place which was once my favorite.

I lived in NY 30 years, and this reminds me of a local pizzeria that I used to hang in as a teenager. The pizza is pretty good, thin and crispy with some nice chew in the crust. The real test is to see if you like the pizza with nothing on it, yes you heard me all you california pizza kitchen fools, virgin with just cheese. If you can eat a cheese slice and enjoy it then they are doing something right. They pull it off ok, but it could use more zest. The place is a bit crowded with limited seating, but the owners are real friendy and the food is pretty good. I wouldnt bring a date there unless it was very casual because it feels like your eating in someones kitchen. So far - its where I go for pizza when I crave a slice.
