Staff don’t speak English and are miserable. They rush your order which is hard when the food is not labelled on display.
Food taste bland, no herbs used. It was next to our hotel so we used it for convenience.

We were looking forward to eating at Famous Famiglia again after having a wonderful pizza there back in 2009 on a previous visit to the city. We think that the location has changed since then, and not for the better. The restaurant looks a little run-down.

What we had this time was pretty tasteless and nowhere near as good as the pizza we are there before. We had a pepperoni one which had very little pepperoni on it. It wasn't good at all. Service couldve been better too. The men on the pizza counter were trying to get us to have a pizza larger than we wanted and couldn't understand that a 10" pizza was what we wanted so that was frustrating and the young woman cashier didn't smile once.
We won't be returning.

I was hungry so had to grab something, right after a 6 hour flight from Dublin. Normally I tend to rave more about food when I’m that hungry but as a lover of pizza it was just so average, the base wasn’t very fresh, slightly overdone even, toppings not bad but didn’t blow my mind.

Personally, I loved their crust! After a full day of sightseeing, we wanted something quick and hot. This was perfect! I really enjoyed their white pizza

Open late option near Penn Station, across from New Yorker Hotel and Madison Square Garden. After midnight, the options become limited this is a solid New York style pizzeria that appears to be popular and does the trick for his late night pizza craving at about four dollars a slice.
