No. It's gas fired. I specifically asked the pizza man.a deceitful sell But still good. How do you say it's wood fired. ?When no wood is used.

It is a thin crust pizza, I would say between a little above a small pie/ I had it delivered and you could smell the wonderful woody charred from the... More

Delicious pizza. We got two cheese pizzas to go, but I wished we would have tried some other types of pizzas, as the menu looked great.

The wood fired pizza itself was very good. I did not rate this place higher because the atmosphere was not great. The service was fine but impersonal. I also left with my clothes smelling very smoky.

Absolutely crazy delicious pizza! Love the one with garlic and stuff.. This used to be my favorite place (especially when a bit hangover) when I was living in NYC! Very casual so no dressing up needed. One orders in the cashier and sits down. A little gem with oven baked deliciousness!

I don't typically write bad reviews but this place was not good in my opinion. I ordered the margherita and my husband ordered pizza with meat on it (I forget the name). He said his was fine but mine tasted like frozen pizza. The counter attendant did not have ice for my drink that I purchased out of their drink... More

Used Waldys a couple of times, having four cheese pizza, margarita pizza and mac and cheese. Good service, good food and didn't have to wait too long either. Would recommend a visit.

Nice pizza but a bit expensive, place doesn't have good atmosphere, it's more like fast food place. For medium pizza which is really normal not big you'll pay 17$. If you're in hurry and want to eat quick, is right place

When it the city this is one of my go to places for pizza. Skip the lines and long waits at those other fire pizza joints. Waldy's makes some great pizza to order without a long wait. Walking down the block you can smell the wood over creating that thin crispy crust. There are many options for the pizzas or... More

Come here if you are a fan of thin, cracker-crisp pizza. Very good. Plentiful fresh toppings. Good mixed greens side salad was perfect partner. Tiny hole-in-the-wall interior with a fragrant slightly smokey aroma and just a couple tables. Be prepared to take your food elsewhere, but we were lucky and scored a table on a Saturday afternoon.
