Ryan comments:

Despite it being a TINY place, we managed to wheel in Ryan’s stroller and find a spot for it under the counter, relatively out of the way. She slept until the last 30 seconds when she fussed a little…almost perfect! We managed to avoid dropping any pizza on her, too.

General Comments:

Prince Street Pizza in Nolita has been around for a few years and is a popular slice joint. It’s known for its square slices and offers 4 varieties of them, alongside non-square options.

The place is well-known and is on most Top 10 lists for pizza in the city, so it gets pretty packed and usually has a line. There are two counters, one on each side, to eat on while standing. There’s probably capacity for about 10 people to stand and eat, so you usually have to wait a couple of minutes for a spot to open up.

The place is so small that the garbage can is actually outside since it doesn’t fit inside.

The walls are filled with photos of the owner, or his son, posing with celebrities who have eaten there. There are some big names here like Leo DiCaprio. We’re big Silicon Valley fans so we were happy to be eating in front of the TJ Miller picture.

We went with three different options to try out both square and non:

The square spicy pepperoni slice, called the Spicy Spring, is their most popular and it definitely lived up to Rob’s expectations. It was a fairly thick, bready slice. The pepperoni were in natural casing and the edges curl up and hold the oil that comes off of them when they’re heated up. It’s got a good amount of fresh mozzarella as well. Melissa enjoyed a few bites of this one, too, even though she’s not big on pepperoni.

The Original, the plain cheese square slice, had a generous layer of cheese underneath a hefty layer of sauce. The sauce was sweet which Melissa really liked, but Rob was eh on. It’s unclear if it was the same sauce on both slices, but it’s possible that the spiciness of the pepperoni overpowered the sweetness of the sauce. Either way this was a solid slice.

The final slice was a regular margherita, which was a traditional New York-style thin slice. It was comparable to other good pizzeria slices, but it didn’t stand out. It may have been better if it wasn’t eaten right next to the superior square slices here, but directly alongside them it was just OK.

Overall we really liked Prince Street Pizza and will be returning, but it will definitely be for their square slices, where they really shine!
