AMAZING PLACE TO SIT AND HAVE PIZZA – THE STAFF ARE PLEASENT AND THE PZZA THEY SERVE WOWW MAN, I JUST LOVE THAT PLACE. IT CAN GET PRETTY CONGESTED BUT THAT 'S BECAUSE THE PIZZA IS TASEFUL. ACTUALLY IM THINKING OF GOING AFTER WORK TO GRAB A PIE LOL.
Nice and Yum – We recently moved to Forest Hills and thought it would be nice to grab a late dinner in the area (tonight). So we shook our UrbanSpoon app and it brought us to Nick's Pizza. Service was great...neighborhood friendly and very attentive. Pizza was yummy...baked fresh and not too heavy for late night dinner. And last but not least....try the cannoli - a perfect dessert to share and end the night.
Rude – I went here with a friend around 8pm. While we still eating the staff started cleaning up the restaurant to close. They sprayed cleaner/bleach right near out table and were cleaning the floors. They could have come over to our table and said, "we are closing soon," or waited until we left to clean with chemicals. Plus, they would not give us a lemon for out water. They only give lemons to customers who buy the bottled water.
Horrible Service - Manager screams at customers!!! – Nick's Pizza has THE WORST SERVICE in this city. Watch out for the moody manager!!!
After ordering my food I asked to be re-seated at one of the booths because my girlfriend and I had walked in with backpacks. The manager snapped at me saying that they don?t do that there. I tried explaining to him that we were really uncomfortable in our current seats and that there were two couples leaving the booths next to our table. He basically screamed at me saying that he needed the booths for other customers ? the place was basically empty and there wasn?t a single person waiting to be seated? The manager was probably having a bad day and decided to scream at us to vent out some of his frustration. I will NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN.
Wrong Attitude – The pizza here is excellent, as are the dessert and selection of beer. The Service needs serious improvement, this is one of those places where they make you feel like they are doing you a favor by allowing you to eat in their restuarant. Also dont expect to get a things after closing, even if your getting something quick to go and there restaurant is half full, the economy isnt at its best and this place is turning business away at 9:50 on a thursday. Better off going to Dee's Pizza on Metropolitan, at least they appreciate your patronage there
One of the best pizza places in Queens – It's not typical NY style pizza but sometimes it's good to try something a little different. Ingredients are top notch and the house salad is the best salad I've ever had. I actually go more for the salad than the pizza but the 2 compliment each other nicely and you feel like you are having a full meal this way. Cash only and no slices which is fine with me. Two people who are hungry can split a large pizza. It's very light.
Family Friendly and maybe the best Pizza in Queens – The oven baked pizza from Nick's never disappoints. The ingredients taste fresh and scrumptious. The choice of alcohol is modest but quirky and pleasant. The staff is great. You will ask yourself "Am I in NY?" because everyone is so friendly. There is limited seating though. If you want to guarantee a quick meal, you have to go during off-peak hours. Definitely worth a try.
Best brick oven pizza in queens – Great selection of beers, family friendly, and yummy pizza. Gets a little crowded on the weekends but still doesn't stop be from showing up.
good pizza.... just dont ask for a lime ! ! – Their gourmet pizzas are not easily found in queens... also hard to find is a place that is as stingy with their limes. Despite the fact we ordered wine, salads, and large pizza the owner told the waiter not to give me a lime wedge with my water unless i ordered bottled. Are u freakin kidding me ! ! ! ! Then i unsuccessfully tried to convince her it was for my salad. Although she admittedly had limes in the kitchen, she defended her "policy" of only serving limes with the order of a bottled water. I dont know whats her damn problem with giving out lime wedges but trust me bring ur own limes if u ever dine there ! ! !
on my behalf i urge anyone who goes there to ask for a lime wedge until the owner realizes how stupid she is.
Busy for a Reason – I heard so much about this place. I just had to try it out. I never really noticed the restaurant before. I had to look up the address ahead of time. The sign should probably be changed. Despite the fact that the restaurant hasn't been around for ages, there is an old, classic diner feel. There are pictures of Forest Hills from way back when. The booths are also green, which matches the trees outside. The place was fairly packed for a Sunday evening...perhaps this is why the service was so strange. The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars is because I've never had such distant service at a pizza place before. I'm accustomed to friendly Italians, not sarcastic assgrabbers who refuse to give you any kind of eye contact.
The pizza itself was great. It wasn't the best I've had in my entire life, but probably the best I'll have in Queens. It's not traditional New York style, in my opinion. The crust is unique, and agreeing with another reviewer, the crust is very naan-like. It is probably best not to get a delivery or take out because the top of the pizza gets cold and soggy after a short while. The crust gets hard and flaky. It is best to dine in and enjoy the unique flavor. The sauce was excellent. The toppings were all very fresh.
Keep in mind that you have to order the entire pie. You also have to pay in cash.
I didn't feel particularly rushed, but I do know that the staff was way more concerned about the customers coming in than the customers who were actually dining. Perhaps I'll return on a weekday.
