      Well, it won’t taste the same. Different chef. All pizza is NOT created equal.

      • Craig says:

        Wait, screamingparrot? You are saying that a different pizza owner with different recipes and ingredients will make pizza that won’t taste the same as the previous store’s pizza? How can you be so sure? 😉

      Where are you Dan? Is Pizza By La Grolla 2.0 going to be opening somewhere else? My family misses you!

    4. Gershon says:

      Ny the time it closes la grolla had lost its touch.

    5. Eli says:

      Saba’s on the UES is really good. Sometimes kosher pizza can be sub par but this one outshines most regular pizza places.

    6. Anna says:

      I went out of my way for La Grolla Pizza, it was the best, even the slice I ate on the Sunday before they closed!

      Meh…maybe one day we will get a decent pie hole up here.

      Does anyone know of a decent thin crust pizza that delivers to the 70s? My kingdom for a decent crust.

      • UWS Dad says:

        Does Bettola (on Amsterdam between 79 and 80) deliver to the 70s? That’s the best thin crust around.

      • Tom tom says:

        If you mean a classic new york slice then no I haven’t found one yet.

        If you mean classic brick oven style then Patsy’s is the closest that delivers to me on 76th. It’s not great but 8 do like ordering a pie with basil, ricotta, and sausage there

    9. Brittany says:

      Saba’s Pizza is the BEST! Looking forward to the opening on the UWS 🙂

      Saba’s Pizza is okay, but Pizza By La Grolla was unique in their offerings and will be missed.
