Was in the mood for good pizza.
Thought to have a good pizza meal by ordering a custom made pizza- after being met with some resistance the pizza man 'warns' me this will be $25. I agree figuring it's worth the wait. Nothing so out of the ordinary- fresh mozarell, basil, tomato and sausage. When called to get pizza I see main ingredient was omitted- when I mention it the pizza man he impatiently responds- 'three dollars extra'. I take the pie as is- no apology. The pie was half baked and watery- this experience will keep me away from pizza in general for a while and from Avellino forever.
The worst experience ever!!!!.
The worst experience ever! Bad customer service really make the food taste even worst. Nothing special about the food and that makes it overpriced. The pizza is watery, the curst has no taste... I think a supermarket pizza dough taste better. By the way, we pay $26 for the worst medium pizza (with the wrong topping even) and the worst attitude. We learn not to go again.
Quality ingredients and friendly staff.
Nice neighbourhood pizzeria with good quality ingredients, I am a big fan of their pizza blanca, and also the mozerella with basil always fresh with virgin olive oil drizzled on top. Brings the italian back to pizza! Friendly staff and I can see it has neighbourhood regulars all on a first name basis.
Good but not great.
Like so many New York pizzerias these days, so this one skimps on the sauce and seems to have something against garlic and spices ... but it's still better than a lot of others, which simply taste of the cardboard box they come in. Still, if you want great pizza these days in New York, it's almost impossible to find and you're better off just making it at home.
Solid meal spot.
Do yourself a favor if you ever find yourself in Rego Park and hit up Avellino's Pizza... the pizza is a no-brainer, and the dinners are drastically underrated. Try the lasagna (a personal favorite), the carbonara or the parm... all delightful and reasonably priced.
Great wait staff as well.. if you play your cards right you may end up with a free glass of wine or 5
This Pizza Is King In Queens!.
With the first bite of Avellino's uniquely-tangy pizza, the tastebuds seem to sing with the discovery of one of the best pies in the five boroughs. The crust is a work of art, the proportion of cheese to sauce is almost scientific in its perfection, and what heavenly sauce, with a tang that puts every other pizzeria in a five-mile radius to shame! It's obvious why Avellino's has ruled Rego Park as the premiere pizzeria for over twenty years!
