everyone with the water – These shops that claim they make their pizza or bagels with NY water is just bull I'Ve been a bagel baker 25 years 18 in NY 7 in Florida .if you know what you are doing you can make good bagels and good pizza and anything else you make with water. That"s like saying NY has better coffee because of the water too. It is all in peoples heads.
The XXL Pizza Is 20" Monster For Four – Eddie and Sams New York Pizza is a plain downtown dive with a few outside seats and an unspectacular inside facility. When you see people pile into the place, you know it is the food.
Thier stuffed crust is excellent and thier pizzas are fairly authentic: Neopolitan, SIcilian, and Primavera/ Their sausage was sliced Tampa-style so I guess they have been out of NYC for a time..
A great option is the stuffed veggie pizza with sauteed spinach and brocolli. As for the 20" giants - I'll wait until I have luinch with four hungry people.
Water – For the uneducated about water... you must not know much about beer either.. because where the water counts all the breweries built their plants.. just look at any Budwiser label and you'll find the best water... if you like the pizza in other joints don't post it here just shows you are not a true nyc pizza connoisseur. PS the secret is the water.. that's why the Kiser rolls don't compare to the rolls up north either... do you ever hear anyone say "Buttered Roll and Coffee to go" ... LOL
Yuck! – I don't know about the rest of you but I went to visit my husband at work in Downtown tampa, he brought me to this Pizza place they go to on their lunch break.... let me tell you this tasted like frozen pizza... and not good frozen pizza. First of all they claim to use REAL NY WATER.... where do they get it.. from the Hudson River? Beside Water doesn't make the pizza... clearly, I just don't understand how some people love this pizza.. It really is just plain yucky. I will stick to a real NY Pizza place over in Carrolwood!
They do use NY water – I have seen the water stored upstairs and ready to be used for making the pizza. They receive to truck loads a year from a spring in NY.
Best NY style pizza in Tampa – I'm from NY and I try different NY style pizza from Orlando to Miami Tampa and Jacksonville... This is the closest you get to New Yorks pizza ~~~~~You have to be from NY in oder for you to know what NY pizza taste like~~~
Authentic ny pizza – Eddie and Sams has the most authentic ny pizza around. It IS all about the water and any REAL new yorker knows this. They have everything including ,my favorite, white and Sicilian. Definately recommend
I agree. – This place is not good. Its not about the water.. because if that was the case you could not find any good pizza here! Seriously what do you do fly it in from the hudson? Sure! I can prove to everyone its not the water because there is good pizza in Florida.
Try BEST NY PIZZA in Carrollwood. This place is the best! It's amazing and it really is true NY pizza.. not "NY Style" (which mean imatation) but true NY Pizza!
You can visit their website which has all the informatiom you will need to experience the best! This is my favorite place ever! There website is simply BestNewYorkPizza
avoid totally – they say they use NY water, what a marketing hoax! ! water weighs too much to ship from NY. who would want to use nasty NY water anyway??? I would rather have clean bottled or filtered water. NY Water does not make the pizza taste good or bad. it is the ingredients. Think about it, how many bad pizza places are in NYC anyway?? right?? has nothing to do with the water.
Anyway, i tried the food, survived, barely. felt nausea afterwards. place was so dirty, too. Much better places in tampa. i'll stick with Sally Oneils or NYPD Pizza. both are much better.
Editorial Review – Besides their signature New-York style pizza, they offer sandwiches, salads and other Italian treats.
