Little Vincent’s Pizza Review Of Manhattan’s 2nd Avenue Location takes a bite of a slice made by a very well known name in the pizza business. Most people in New York, especially Long Islanders are very much aware of Little Vincent’s Pizza. It’s one of the most famous names in pizza in New York. The Long Island locations have an impeccable reputation for making simply fantastic tasting pizza. The original Long Island Little Vincent’s Pizzeria was opened up in 1971. Many years later, they opened a second location in Huntington. I had heard about the Manhattan location but had never had a chance to try it until just recently.
The Manhattan location is located on Second Ave at 73rd street. The building marquee looks identical to the Long Island Pizzerias. Even the inside counter which is old school minimalist is very similar to the Long Island locations. However, to my surprise when I asked the server about the Long Island location he answered that they were different owners. I was a bit taken back by that answer and my further pursuit of more info resulted in pretty much just a thank you from the server. Now he wasn’t rude or mean anything, he just really wasn’t into getting into a conversation. Personally, I like getting into conversations because that is how I grew up in the neighborhood pizzerias in my old Bronx neighborhood. It’s what I loved about Zazzy’s Pizzeria in our last review where they were really friendly and responded in conversation.
I headed outside with my cheese slice and diet coke. The size of the slice was pretty much average. It’s tough to get a big slice in Manhattan and so Little Vincent’s Pizza was no different from the rest. At first glance, the slice looked pretty good. It was easy to see that there seemed to be the right amount of sauce and cheese. That mixture of sauce and cheese is a very important criteria in judging a slice upfront. The crust was strong, as it didn’t fall apart when I picked it up to take a bite.
While the pizza passed all the visual and physical tests, the most important part awaited. Of course, that was the taste of the slice. In that department, Little Vincent’s Pizza rates really high. This was a great-tasting slice of pizza. There was a perfect blend of cheese, sauce, oil and spices. As I described in the video below, it all worked together in perfect harmony. This is what New York pizza is supposed to taste like. This was neighborhood pizza. It was real, genuine, and completely satisfying. While the pizzeria could defiantly use improvement in customer service. their pizza was one of the best I had tasted in Manhattan.
The taste of the pizza also confirmed to me that this pizzeria was not associated with Little Vincent’s Pizza on Long Island. Maybe at one time they were, but the pizza in Manhattan tasted very different from the Long Island location which has a very distinctive taste from any other pizza in the New York Area. They are both great, but very different. Nonetheless, you can’t go wrong at either the Long Island locations or this great tasting pizza on Second Ave on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
