Well, we like the place no matter what, but with all the talk about NY style pizza I'm just surprised this place hasn't come up before.It feels like an authentic neighborhood joint to me.Give us your opinions.

Went with a friend who is from NY, I didn't care for the pizza myself, can't remember why, it's been so long. I'm a self-proclaimed pizza snob, had a pizzeria. I go to Black Mountain for good pizza. It's a trek I wish I didn't have to take, but just can't find what I consider good pizza here.


My Mom sent me the name of a place she heard that has NY style pizza in Asheville that's suppose to be good. I've never heard of it or gone there, but maybe those who are interested and may be in the Asheville area may want to check it out:

I'll stick with My Father's Pizza, I know it's a drive, but I also know I'll get consistently great pizza!

Been there too. Trust me, I've tried many places.


If you ever find yourself in Black Mountain, check out My Father's Pizza and order their My Father's Supreme.

We ate pizza there the other day. It was OK but there wasn't enough sauce on it. I can't judge it at this point because I need to try it with more sauce. For some reason, this is common here, they skimp on the sauce. The crust, toppings and cheese were good. The crust was crispy on the bottom was still a little doughy on the top.

What kind of pizza do they serve at My Father's?

I don't get it either I don't like my pizza smothered in sauce but I still like some sauce. Dry pizza can ruin the pizza.

It is not my idea of NY style pizza, but I had a good pizza at Paisano's Restaurant on Pelham Road in the shopping center at highway 14.

https://paisanosgreenville.com/

I see a lot of northerners on restaurants reviews claiming Sciortino's, Bertolo's (one location on Pelham, another on Highway 14), and Antonino Bertolo's Pizza on Main Street all have bonafide NY style pizza.

My favorite in Greenville back in 2008 prior my relocation to another city for a few years was Formano's Italian Grill on Woodruff Road where Eggs Up Grill is now. I think those owners were from Boston.

As a former NYer I know Sciortino's, pronounced SORE TEEN Os. They are excellent for All Italian food and pizza. They still own a restaurant in Fresh Meadows NY. Give them a try. Right off 85 in Greer. Super wait staff and family owners are so nice. Miniature garlic knots are awesome! Their veal cutlet is real veal not a veal patty. They bring certain items in weekly from New York.

They were indeed from up around Boston, and they had fresh whole clams flown in every Tuesday. They had the best - which is to say the only - fried whole clams, bellies and all, in the Upstate. I miss the place.
