The atmosphere at Joe’s Pizza was fun, relaxed and had a hole-in-the-wall feel to it. The menu is simple and the staff sociable and visibly committed to excellence taking pride in each slice of pizza served. The inside was small with only a few small table areas for seating (which added to the hole-in-the-wall setting) and a pub table outside. Eating slices of pizza while standing up inside and outside seemed to be a common theme with the locals. Inside décor consisted mostly of framed pictures hung on the wall of numerous famous celebrities who have eaten there.
The pepperoni slice was excellent! The pepperoni was flavorful and the cheese absolutely delicious. The authentic New York style thin crust had a perfect light crisp to it. The texture and taste of the crust was second-to-none.
