Description: NY Slice has become a Glasgow phenomenon in only 1 year. Acclaimed by critics, bloggers and national media, it is taking the local market by storm. Our authentic New York offering of pizza by the slice & whole pizzas up to 18"s for dine in, takeout or delivery is revolutionising pizza in the City.

I had been studying in the Dental Hospital across the road and was fed up of soup and sandwiches, so decided to pop in for a nice wee change. Best. Decision. Ever. A cheeky wee slice of pizza, potato wedges and loads of garlic mayo was just what I needed as a pick-me-up.

I'm an American in Glasgow for 20 years now, patiently waiting for someone to sell an authentic slice of pizza. So pleased to finally have stumbled on NY Slice, it's the real thing and it's delicious! Crisp base and served nice and hot, far from the stogy-lukewarm-limp pizza generally found elsewhere. So great to just drop in, get a slice and be on your way. Quick and tasty. Please open up a branch in Shawlands!

The 18 inch bad boy is exactly what you want! Amazing! Unreal size and a nice change from the franchise pizza places.

Having not been on Sauchiehall Street for some time, a few new developments had caught my eye - among the handful of new, promising eateries and shops, NY Slice immediately stuck out for me on the get go.

Pizza by the slice is a very rare thing in Scotland, with the only other location I can think of to sell huge slices of pizza for take-away being that pizza stall at the bottom of Union Street, which sells large but relatively stale and rubbery slices with very little in the way of choice over toppings, especially for vegetarian-diets.

NY Slice is not only the best pizza by the slice in Glasgow, it might just be the best pizza in Glasgow full stop. Full-size pizzas are made fresh to order, while the pizza-by-the-slice option for takeaway all tastes as if it was made within the hour, and kept at an excellent temperature for eating on the go. The stock pizzas come in a few good varieties, with Sicilian style base as an option as well, a well-thought-out veggie option and of course, the option to choose your own toppings from a solid range of fresh ingredients. The base and crust are in the sweet spot of having a little bite to it, while still being soft and fresh. The sauce is simply excellent, with just the right amount of tang without being overpowering, and the cheese is delicious and chewy - I have yet to order a pizza that has been either rushed overdone from this establishment.

The sides range is relatively limited, but the quality will turn heads. While a lot of similar take-away establishments - including big players such as Dominos - are providing soggy, underdone potato wedges without much flavour to speak of, NY Slice's wedges are crispy and delicious, with the perfect amount of seasoning to enjoy even without an optional dip.

Worth mentioning is their range of fountain drinks - while not massive or hugely out of the ordinary, I appreciate the inclusion of Sunkist in their drinks choice. It's a minor point, but little details like this help provide a break-from-the-norm you might find yourself falling into elsewhere.

The last point I'd like to make are that the staff are all efficient yet warm and friendly. I never felt pressured for time at any point figuring out what I wanted to order, even when I have visited during busier lunch hours and provided nippy service with a little banter and a smile. The premises was also kept neat and tidy, with not even any visible crumbs or unwiped surfaces even at the self-service drinks/sauce dispensers.

If you're like me and eat a lot of pizza, you would do well to give NY Slice a shot if you're either in town looking to grab a quick something for lunch, or thinking of ordering a pizza delivery. For me, NY Slice is the new king of pizza in Glasgow.
