NYC makes some of the best thin crust pizza in the Des Moines area. The pizza is huge but you do pay for that. We almost always get the Iowa with pork, corn and BBQ sauce. When I first thought about it, I didn't think I would like it but we have ordered it time after time. It is actually... More

Call ahead as they were closed at 7:48 even though the sign has open until 9. Guy cleaning up didn't seem to care that I was trying to get in. The other 5 people that showed up as I wrote this didn't seem all that happy either. A guy did just stick his head out the door to say they... More

The staff was very friendly and chatty. The Big Bambino pizza that we ordered was tasty, but..the toppings were overcooked and dried out. The Italian sausage and beef crumbles were dried out to the point of being hard. At least the pizza wasn't greasy. It's a good thing we ordered extra cheese because it probably would have been nonexistent otherwise.

Their sandwiches are very good and make you think you may have just ordered one in Hew York. The prices are midrange and the place is clean. Just a small place across from Walmart on Mills Civic Pkwy about 1 1/2 miles west of Interstate 35.

I fell in love with this pizza the first time I tried it. The pies are huge and it is truly NY style.

Second visit was not as well remembered, but left with positive feeling. The third visit featured pep/beef bu the beef had a definite off taste (yesterday's... More

If you like thin crust pizza this place has a good one. However it is a little pricey. One large pizza and 3 drinks cost almost $30.00. I normally go with the chains who have specials and pay quite a bit more. I have to say the taste of this pizza was better but not at twice the price. Probably... More
