    Ask the Torture House delivery guys… Some Fascati delivery guys work for them when the fam goes on vacation…

  • HereToStay

    Try the pie from Ignazios. Their delivery is quick by car and it’s pretty good…

  • Hicks St Guy

    you are definitely pizza-challenged.
    Fascist Pizza is lousy pizza, barely average at best. Rudest owner in the world.

    I think the discussion about pizza in the area needs its own thread, with a moderating committee. I would put it to anyone interested in the subject that there are different functional kinds of pizza (or, for example, in the case of the stuff they make in Chicago, casserole) that should not be compared to one another in any fair debate. Eh Claude?

  • Mary Kim

    A new sign says they will open on 9/20.

  • Concerned

    Uhhhhh No! Fascati’s is delicious. And excuse me if I don’t shed a tear for you because the owner was rude to you. He probably figured out you have zero taste in pizza.

    Understood that Fascati’s is an important nabe resource. But, truly, the pizza has devolved over time and is now a mediocre bite at best.

    PS, it was a dark(ish) day when the front window, through which you could see the guys working, was paved over with an ad. How much do you suppose the store’s owners netted for installing this affront?

  • Concerned

    I do hate that window ad. But I see no issues with the pizza. A sprinkle of the garlic powder and the pizza is almost a perfect NYC thin slice.

  • AEB

    Except it’s not thin-crusted. And garlic powder on pizza is, as they say in the Old Country, trayf.

    But taste is really something that one can’t argue with. Only the Lord shall judge….

  • Concerned

    It’s thin enough to have an NYC thinness and also some real texture to it, which is one of the things I really like about it. As far as the garlic powder, that’s my personal preference. I’ve rarely had any pizza (or meal for that matter) that I didn’t add a bit of salt or extra condiment to, for my own liking.
    So what’s your favorite pizza in the nabe, AEB? I also really like Table 87.

  • DIBS

    I spent 20 years in Chicago before I spent 20 years in NYC. Don’t start. :-)

  • DIBS

    It’s a cold day in hell when I agree with concerned but I do. It’s pretty good thin crust pizza (and yes, it is thin crust). Certainly better than 90% of what is sold throughout NYC. But the lasagna, that’s the best. When they don’t run out of it.

  • Moni

    So glad. Now you can shut up about it and indulge once again in your passable pie, instead of ordering from My Little Pizzeria on Court St., which is much better – a tastier dough and generous, fresh, extra veggie toppings.They will also cook it well done if you ask.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    But starting is precisely what I’m trying to do! Just, in a new thread.
