Used to Like It, Now I Don't – When this place opened up I used to eat there all the time. Over the last year the service has went completely down hill. The staff have attitudes. They don't care about their customers. Also, I noticed a bad sanitation score. In addition, the food isn't as good as it was when they first opened. Hopefully they will read these comments and improve their service and food.
Most Authentic New York Pizza in the Triangle area; also the most authentic NY city service. The staff are basically rude, almost to the point that it seems they try to be rude to be cool. The owner looks and acts like a Brooklyn caricature from Saturday Night Fever. You can expect great pizza, but don't expect great service. Just get your pie to go!
Worst Pizza On EARTH – The first time I went to this pizza joint I was not very pleased. I walked in the place and I almost slipped on the floor because of all the grease. I then went to order and there was this rude guy standing there. I said I was ready to order and he ignored me and sniffed his arm-pit. I went to go to the bathroom and it smelled like a dead body. I then looked at the sanitation score and it was 89.7 not very good. Then I sat down and waited for my food. It took about 25 minutes for it to come. I took a bite and it taste like a Kristpy Cream donut. I noticed I forgot my cup. I went to ask this worker for a cup. He ignored me again. Then he pitted up a cup and push it into my hands hard. When I got home I looked at the receipt. The idiot charged me $3.00 for a small water. I will never even dare to go there again.
Stop ur complaining, pizza is awsome! – Greatest pizza in America! Whoever doesn't like it just because of the customer service is just a biotch and if you want real pizza then be a real man and stop bitching that you had to pay 30 cents more for a cup. Ya Nick, the owner is a douche. A self absorbed, egotistical, big mouth douche. But the food is awsome. I get most of it for free anyways. If you are cool to the employees, they will be cool to you and give you cool stuff. OH and just for a tip....DON'T ever leave a tip. Nick the owner just takes it and puts it in his pocket cause he's pathetic like that. He's not even from Brooklyn, he just tries to act like a a$$hole so people will think he's a big shot.
Great food - but not impressed with owner and staff! – Ok, so this place in my opinion has great pizza. I'm from NY and enjoy their pizza. However, where they are lacking is in customer service. The owner rarely smiles, is not engaging and recently when I was there and asking for a fork and napkins, an employee just kind of glared at me like I was putting him out. What's disturbing is that staff tend to exemplfy behavior that they are modeled from their boss OR that they are allowed to get away with. It's an arrogance really. I write this review hoping that the owner reads it because the food it great, but more attention in these areas would surely bring in more customers. For example, putting a tacky hand written sign that telling customers that they don't 'do' to-go cups, or there will be another full drink charge - is NOT customer friendly and sends a message that I would think a business owner would NOT want to send. Don't be so... cheap. The cups and refills on soda cost you pennies - it'd be worth it for happier customers. I will continue to eat there while shopping at Whiteoak, but hope that the attitude of the staff changes and more attention to these little details occur as it would enhance the experience of eating there. (offering kids cups with lids would sure be nice too).
AVOID AT ALL COSTS – Worst service anyone could possibly ever get. And the place was dirty. Not just the place but he employees as well. And the food isn't even worth it. We've tried several items there to see how this place could possibly still be in business and I have no idea how. Nothing was good at all! This place gives White Oak and Northerners a bad name!
best pizza in the Raleigh area – I try to eat here at least once a month. The pizza is by far the best NY style pizza I've had since moving to the area. I've never had a problem with the staff either. Normally when I go, it's just my wife and I. However, I took a large group there (about 10 people including a 2 year old) on a Saturday. Just as always, the staff was very accomodating and the pizza was delicious.
Disgusting and dirty – Moved to NC 3 yrs. ago from NY, heard about primavera's and decided to try it since it is not too far. The few times we have gone there and trust me other then the first time, we were shopping and staving, they by far have the worst tasting pizza I have ever eaten, Domino's taste better and we hate Domino's. The pizza is paper thin, the sauce is tarte and the service is the worse. I have never once been there and saw any of the workers, and the're usually 3-4 of them, look clean, the t'shirt 's are suppose to be white and look a dingy light black, most of them have long hair and look like they haven't taken a shower in days. They are not friendly at all and the owner thinks he's some tough guy from Brooklyn, you should be ashamed of yourself, I would be embarrassed to tell anyone if I were associated w/ this place. By the looks of his wife and pretty little baby, I'm sure his house doesn't look like his place of business. Clean up your act and get some new clean workers that are friendly. I WOULD NEVER GO BACK THERE AGAIN, PERIOD!!!!
DIRTY AND RUDE – This place IS NOT Kid friendly! First of all, the place looks dirty and greasy. The order taker, a guy that appeared in charge, was very rude. I requested the special of two slices of pizza and a drink and he refused to let me order at the special price. I had intended to share part of one of the slices with my little boy (4) and buy an extra drink for him. He told me that he doesn't allow "sharing" and would charge me for the two slices individually. I tried to explain to him that my son didn't eat much and I didn't want to pay for a big slice when I knew he couldn't eat it. They guy wouldn't hear it. He made me feel like a criminal or something. His whole attitude was cocky and rude. I will never go near this place again.
Avoid this place like the plague! – Went with friends at about 6 p.m. on a Sunday. Ordered calamari appetizer and salad. Food slow in coming. Salad was lettuce and tomato only. Calamari TOUGH AS SHOE LEATHER -COULD NOT EAT IT, sent it back and expected I could get a replacement of equal value - NOT SO. After long wait the "manager" came over to inquire about problem. Said could not give me anything to replace it and no money back. Tried a piece of a friend's pizza - not all that great, can't understand why people rave about it, mediocre at best. Attitude of staff rude, surly, condescending. Would definitely not recommend and will not go back!!!
