Portland >New York New York Steaks & Italian DIning Pizza
The BEST NY style Pizza on the West Coast!. As a native New Yorker living out here for 10 + years, we got tired of "NY Pizza" claims from the other pizza joints in Portland. So we kind of gave up and just made our own, which still wasn't close since we don't have a proper pizza oven. Then a friend suggested New York, New York on Barbur. We live about 3 minutes from here. I will never eat another pizza in Portland other than the great pizza that owner Pat and his lovely daughter Deena serve. This is the real deal. Authentic NY-style pizza needs to flop, drip with a bit of grease and have a crispy crust (but not crunchy) - they get is right here. I've also eaten "NY Style" Pizza in San Francisco, LA and Seattle - and nothing comes close to the mouth-watering pizza here! Thank you for allowing me a little piece of NY here in Portland! I've already put the word out to my NY network here in Portland!
Very good pizza, homey joint, but not gourmet. I haven't found much NY style pizza in Portland and there's no doubt this place is good - the crust has a nice crispness and the standard ingredients are available. The restaurant itself is homey but don't expect gourmet service or food here - good solid food is what you'll get. Definitely not the best restaurant nor the best pizza in Portland but worth a try if you're in the neighborhood and like this kind of place.
Authentic NYC Style and perhaps THE BEST Pizza in Portland.
I can overlook that Pat will not allow garlic salt into his restaurant (garlic salt... it's a NY'r thing) because this is the kind of pizza I remember getting as a kid growing up in Rockaway Beach, Queens. When you fold the pizza in half the bottom crust cracks just a little bit (the way it is supposed to). If you don't fold the pizza the cheese slides right off the pizza, perfect!
I also got a italian sausage sub to take to work... it never made it! I started to nibble on it just a little and slammed the whole thing on the spot, it was so good!
This is Italian food with all of the character and tastes of NYC. I will be found here FREQUENTLY.
Hands Down Best Italian Restaurant in Portland. Absolutely the best Italian restaurant in all of Portland! I would go on and on, but all I have to say is that we ordered their food for our wedding - and everyone raved! Oh, and by the way, the LARGEST pizzas in Portland...Dine in and meet the ever-charming owner and chef Pat, who is from NY and makes the food from scratch.
Best Pizza in Portland. This is the best pizza in Portland, for sure. Pat Pasquale is there and he's just amazing with his sauces. The pizza is the best. The cheese is done at the same time the crust is. That's what you don't get in other places. It's so great and you'll just love the atmosphere. It's like you are in New York!
Not to be rude to the other reviewers, but.... ...a friend of mine from NYC says this is the most authentic New York Italian deli in Portland. Authenticity aside, it's absolutely excellent, and the service is amusing and professional. I think the other reviewers (dickweeds) were looking for a Round Table experience. Don't listen to anything they said; they're clueless.
go elsewhere. I was hoping this place would be good but the pizza tasted like frozen pizza from Costco and the olive cheese bread did not taste like anything original or gourmet. It tasted like a regular sub bread with cheap mozzarella cheese and canned olives. My sub was ok but nothing spectacular. I prefer the better and more unique restaurants around town that serve quality food. And I thought smoking was reserved for after 10pm???
Not worth the money.
We ordered a dinner delivery from New York New York, and we were sadly unimpressed. The food was mostly mediocre, except for the overly salty minestrone, but what we received for our money was definitely substandard. We are not the type who expect to gorge on gigantic portions, but a meal of pasta that does not even come with a salad should be enough to satisfy an adult appetite. Fettucine alfredo with shrimp was just that...about a cup of cooked fettucine noodles with alfredo sauce, and 5 medium sized shrimp perched on top. Not prawns, shrimp. Seriously. 5 shrimp. For $16.50.
Added to that was the fact that the garlic bread was burned and they sent it anyway, and instead of sending the soup in a soup container, they sent it in the same type of flat foil cake pan with cardboard cover that they use for their pasta. There is no way to seal the top, and it was leaking.
Not a restaurant we'll be patronizing again, thanks. If this is how they send out delivery food, we are not interested in visiting them.
Authentic!!. This is the closest thing youll find out here to an authentic New York style place!! Real quality, great service....thanks again guys!!
What I've been waiting for.... Simply put, amazing. AH-MAZING. The base ingredients (mozzarella, marinara sauce) are fantastic and if you've got 'em in your dish, you really can't go wrong. Service is absolutely delightful. Family-run feel with masterful flavors. I could describe everything I've eaten, but you should just stop reading and go.
