Great NYC style pizza with the best Gluten Free crust ever. Saleds are great, service and the owner makes it personal and special. A must try.

Average pizza in an average small cafe. Seems to be mostly for take away sales. The pizza cost a lot more than the signs on the wall said, so I'm not sure about pricing either. I wouldn't go there again.

161 Street offers fresh ingredients with the dough recipe and sauces right out of New York. A great option is Gluten free crust If you have allergies to wheat. The Gluten free crust is better then regular pizza crust, try it.

Small but cozy and decorated with Yankees stuff, this place took me back home to the Big Apple. The staff was friendly and, despite being Los Angelinos, had the proper NYC attitude. The pie was very good as was the service. This is my new favorite pizza joint in LA!

As soon as I left this place I went to write a review because it was truly the most incredible food experience I've had in a long time. I ordered a Caprese salad and my friend ordered a sub. Top quality food and presentation - good portions and nicely presented with additional bread or salad not listed on the menu... More

The pizza is great but we really enjoyed the atmosphere. The guys behind the counter were friendly and engaging. We looked at all the baseball memorabilia and then asked about how to get to a Dodgers game. Thanks for making our first night in the U.S. so enjoyable. BTW the dodgers games was good too.

This is the closest pizza to get a slice in NYC. The pizza is delish, the pasta is devine, and the service is friendly :)

Best Pizza we've had in LA. Hands down. When we come to LA, we always eat here ...several times. The guy is from NY and is friendly as heck. He chats with the clients and is very engaging. Plus the pizza is AWESOME!!! You must eat here!!
