As a New Yorker living in LA, I’m always on the hunt for good NYC style Pizza. This place is it! Tomato Pie Pizza Joint in South Pasadena is amazing! We got a Pepperoni, Mac n Cheese, and Syracuse Hot Wing slice! All we’re delicious and I can confirm that are definitely NYC status for pizza! The people that work there are very nice and I’ll definitely keep coming back! This place has me locked in!
I would say this place is more like a 4.3 maybe a 4.4. I come here every so often for pizza and the pizzas mostly decently good, you know? I mean it's not the thin crusted thin style that I sometimes like to eat but it's more like the style I had when I was a kid. They have a couple tables in the back where you can eat if you feel so inclined; I like to go there towards dusk when the heat is down and or the sun is not shining so brightly. The only real issue I have with this place are the wings. I don't know what they do to them, but I'm just going to say it and this is the way I see it; namely, that they are fatty and there is little to no crust on the chicken itself. Let me explain, it's as if they're microwaving the wings. Maybe they're not, but I've eaten their wings multiple times, and they're always...well, there's a deep fry coat on it but it's soggy not crisp in any way at all. I don't understand if they're actually making them fresh or they're actually cooking them, how they get like that, so that leaves microwaving. Like I said, I don't know that they do microwave them, but let's just say I don't recommend the wings. The staff are what you'd expect in a place like this, you know; not rude, they just want to get your order out to you. Eat there, the pizza is good, thick crusted, salty meat and the tables have choke napkins on the tables to use. Try the wings even, if just to make your own conclusions.
Extremely fun and friendly staff!!! Clean atmosphere, clean facilities. 🍕 SPECTACULAR, Of course we had traditional pepperoni, and one with broccoli that was actually super delicious!!!! Going back for the piece with broccoli it was that scrumptious! I comment on how clean a restaurant is because obviously of what is currently taking place. I misplaced my 😷 mask and they were generous enough to give me a new one!!🥰
Great pizza. Got the Butcher pizza. Really good. But pricier than your average pizza place but I think it's worth it. Got the hot wings but those were whatevs. Overall great pizza pies but you can skip the sides. Street parking and a small lot on the side.
Simply the most delicious pizza around! My husband and I, are always looking for a pizza that remind us of New York's pizza and we finally found a spot that surpassed anything we've ever had! You must MUST try the Macaroni & Cheese Pizza: it's my favorite! Ps. They have great customer service which made this experience even better!
