Often called "the forgotten coal oven pie" by pizza nerds, this obscure Astoria pizzeria does indeed post one of the city's handful of working coal ovens, a hellish furnace that cooks pies faster and better than any other medium. And at Sac's, as at hardly any other coal oven joint, you can get slices.
Pizza Pizza – The Best Pizza ever. ...., especially the Sicillian. It's a fat slice of hot, thick, dough-y, cheesy and saucy slice of heaven. MMMMMMM DeeeeeLish
Great Food, Great Cannoli! – Wow. What a fantastic place. I was on the hunt for a cannoli spot and boy was I glad that I found this place! I agree with the review below! What a great cannoli! I even brought them home for my boyfriend and he too loved the cannolis! I am going to be coming back for more!
Good Pizza Great Cannoli – Need I say more? Owners a pretty cool guy too.
Great pizza, great food, but... – I go here a couple of times a week for a slice or to get something to go. The pizza and food are amazing!
What I have found to be a bit disappointing is that, like some others have mentioned here, some of the wait staff can be rude/obnoxious/lazy. The last time I sat for a meal my waiter was Luis and he couldn't have been more unpleasant. If I ever go again I will request a different waiter.
Don't bother unless you live nearby and/or starving – I ate there for the first time in 2002 when I moved into the area. I thought it was very good (would have recommended it to others)but a little on the expensive side. I continued to go there occasionally usually for the pizza. On my most recent visit it just didn't seem the same. I don't know if it has changed owners/management, but I was very disappointed!! The pizza was really lacking cheese, the slices seemed smaller, and the service was bad. I will not go back. As for the people who say it is the best pizza in NYC, they must not get out often. I know good pizza and it is in Brooklyn, not Queens.
Perfect Italian – I was just there recently and I had a great experience. The food was good and the service was excellent . Try the vitello parmigiana.It was fantastic. I would recommend to anyone.
Best Pizza, GREAT Italian food – You know its good when Tony Bennett and his friends eat there. I saw him there a couple months back and those guys are as Italian as it gets! The seafood is great, pizza is amazing, pasta is yum! A bit pricey but its a nice place and the service is great. I been to Italy a few times, the food here compares nicely. Taste fresh and not defrosted like the other places.
Over Over Over WAAAYY Overpriced. – I live across the street from Sac's, and was totally ecstatic to have a new fine dining Italian restaurant in the neighborhood when it opened. And then I ate there. The food was generic and lackluster (were talkin' frozen cheapo calamari generic, in fact the calamari at Sanford's diner up the block greatly outdoes Sac's in quality), and generally oversalted. Now the brick oven pizza is actually mighty tasty, and would have saved the restaurant for me, had it not been for the excruciating prices. I spent (and this is no exaggeration) $52 on two small pizzas and an appetizer. Sure I had some toppings like garlic and anchovies, but I think anyone would agree prices like that are ridiculous. If Sac's can get it's act together, and lower it's prices, I would be keen on buying their brick oven pizza more often... but I think I will continue to avoid the calamari
Wow. RUDE. But food is good. – This is a tough one. A perfect example of having to chose what's more important to you. The waitstaff can be downright arrogant, abnoxious and RUDE. The food... ? It's delicious. I'm disheartened that Louise or whatever his name is, gets away with being arrogant and lazy with people. The other staff working were hard-workers and seemed very friendly. Please please please, bring some of those guys up front - give Louise a break. He told us of his 13-years and quite frankly, it's too long. I never feel compelled to point out someone's bad day, but he's had a bad month or so, because we go in once a week and see how he abruptly takes orders and barely acknowledges that you're HUMANS ordering food. He barely cracks a smile (and we've tried) and makes you feel bad for asking for a refill, another beer or more bread. (REALLY!?!?!?) Ugh. Sorry Sac's, I'm taking a break.
ITS MY Family But the truth is the truth. – Look the service is not the best ,prices a little high but the FOOD is GREAT.The Sacramones are great owners and very freindly .Domenico is the man to ask about wine, Anthony is the best man to talk to and understands what you want. He will have you in stiches. I think its a great place to have dinner .So go try it you will enjoy yourself .
