    John's (Bleecker, not Times Sq.), Joe's, Lombardi's, Grimaldi's (Brooklyn). I've heard great things about Patsy's, too, but have never been there.

    Comparatively, "Ray's" sucks.

    From that list I've only been to Grimaldi's - and it was great both times.

    Ray's isn't that great, it's just well known by longevity. Try Grimaldi's under the brooklyn bridge, Patsy's any one of several locations, or Johns on 44th or in the village

    John's on 44th is TOTALLY different from the one in the Village. They use different recipes - I'd highly recommend skipping Times Square and going to the Bleecker St. location. Better atmosphere, too.

    I've only been to the one in Times Square. Although I don't remember much about the pizza, the restaurant itself is seriously cool with that stained glass dome from its remnants as a former church. Its worth going there at least once.

    Yes the pizza is different but I wouldn't say totally different. You'll probably have a bit of a wait outside in the village

    I tried to find past posts. We had a great pizza debate a while ago.

    From memory.....

    Now, these are my top picks so there is room for debate. Also you have to include the boroughs. Some of the best food (ethnic) is outside of Manhattan. The rents get so crazy here that the turnover makes it hard for good food to stick around. Queens and the like have family run business's for 20 years or more.

    Hence the great Grimaldi's/Patsy's split which is famous for the feuding family.

    In no particular order

    Bleeker Street pizza
    Denino's Staten Island
    Sullivan St. Bakers---47th and 10th
    Joe's ---Carmine street
    Maffies---21st and 6th ave---ask for the grandma or grandpa pie! not slice
    Franny's---Prospect Heights
    Lazzara's Pizza cafe---high 30's around 7th ave--considered the best
    Totonno's ---Coney Island---never been but always makes the list of great pie's
    Una Pizza on 12th and 1st---fond memories right in the heart of bar central--probably have thrown up more times on that block than anywhere else in the world.
    Nicks---Queens
    Grimaldi's and Johns on Bleeker are still my favorites but are very famous and were mentioned before.

    This place hasn't been the same since about a year ago or so. Definitely not what it used to be.

    That was back in the 1990s in Manhattan when there were lots of pizza joints calling themselves "Ray's Original" or "Ray's Famous" or wot-evah.

    Basically, people would have some large electric ovens and throw in some sandwiches and a little pasta, then call themselves that name. They were pretty good pizza, but never great. I have no idea why the name was so important to them, since if they were in a good location and made pretty good pizza, they'd get lots of customers anywayz.

    Brick oven pizza is far better, and some liked focaccia bread, too.
