Artichoke Basille’s Pizza & Brewery on Urbanspoon

Economics: Reasonable price for huge slices or giant whole artichoke, crab, Margherita or Sicilian pies. Pizza slices ranged $4-$4.50 and whole pies $24-$30.

Atmosphere: We visited the original Artichoke Basille’s at 328 E. 14th Street in the East Village area. It was tiny inside with no tables or seating yet it was cozy and super popular. We waited in a line that formed out the door. Most people ate their slices standing up or ordered to go.

Taste: The artichoke pizza slice was one of the best pizzas we’ve had in New York. The slice came topped with fresh chunks of artichoke hearts, spinach, cream sauce, mozzarella, pecorino and Romano cheese. It was served on a flakey, crisp and buttery crust that was thicker than most New York style crusts.

Service: The service was fast and friendly. Despite the long line that formed out the door it moved rather quickly. Be sure to bring cash as Artichokes pizza is cash only.

Artichoke’s Pizza in Manhattan had a small and unassuming storefront location. The inside was tiny but cozy. There were no tables or chairs inside but that didn’t deter the crowd. A long line of patrons formed out the door (common during peak hours) and most people ate their slices standing up or ordered to go.

Artichoke’s had a simple menu consisting of whole pies and slices. Some of the most popular choices are artichoke, crab, Margherita and Sicilian pies. Their legendary slices were humungous, absolutely delicious and more than enough for two to share. As with most pizza joints we visited in New York, Artichokes was cash only.
