Best of Staten Island: Here are the 5 best pizzerias as voted by our readers
STATEN ISLAND, NY – We have our winners.
Following our coverage of Staten Island’s top five bagel shops, gyms, and yoga studios, we’ve shifted gears to bring you one of the most contested categories in our Best of Staten Island series: Best Pizza.
We asked our readers to tell us which places had the best crust, most elite gravy, and most cheesy pies, and they named 100 – yes, 100 – remarkable spots through hundreds of emails and comments on social networks.
After a week of voting, the first five voters were:
â¢ Rustic pizza and pasteria (97 Lincoln Avenue; rusticpizzapasteria.com; 212-425-2623)
â¢ Staten Island Slice (1880, boulevard Hylan; statenislandslice.com; 718-524-6522)
â¢ Lorenzo’s Pizza from New York (1910, boulevard Hylan; lorenzosnewyork.com; 718-979-4700)

â¢ Mimmo’s brick oven pizza and trattoria (15 Giffords Ln .; mimmosbrickpizza.com; 718-967-6560)
Over the next two weeks, Advance / SILive.com will be visiting these pizzerias to show you what makes them fan favorites. Cover will appear on Advance / SILive.com social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TIC Tac – as well as in the Staten Island Advance.
