Are you serious – I am not sure where the other reviwers ate at in NY or NJ. My wife and I went Saturday at 7PM, packed with brisk business. Our first visit and previosuly been to several well known Pizza shops in NY, Italy, and Dallas. So we know a little bit about Pizza. We ordered our drinks. wine selection is limitted but who cares in a good Pizza joint right.. We ordered Paige's specialty Pizza. Unfortunately, they were so busy we ended up waiting 1 and 1/2 hours for the Pizza to show up. Curiously eager for the Pizza we didn't complain. Now the serious part. The Pizza basics: Dough - Totally flat 1/2 inch all around, dry, crunches on a knife, and was unrisen. Reminded me of a good frozen dough you can buy at Whole Foods Market. The topings were so so but overly abundant, still ok for regional style but the basil topping was burnt, crispy, and flaky. First time I have ever seen burnt herb on pizza toping. Taste: they used fresh mozarella so it helped but the rest of the topings were not great by no means. Mind you I am not even telling you about the salad so don't bother ordering it. Most definitely not NY or NY style Pizza. Sorry but by comparison Dewey's is like a gourment french to fast food joint when compared to Aponte's. The waitress noticed we weren't too happy with the food and stepped over to tell us nicely we should either come early or late on Fri/Sat for best quality since they get busy. Wow. We did see stressed out high school kids working on the open kitchen. I think someone needs to invite Gordon Ramsay to come fast. Basics are totally lost here but was probably a good joint at one time. Won't bother going back. Dewey's to the rescue.
I like it. – Good pizza for Cincinnati's standards - better than Dewey's, same quality perhaps as Fratelli's Pizzeria.
Decent Pizza – Aponte's is good. It's not great New York style, but it's pretty good for around here. The atmosphere is weird.
Great Pizza, Ignore The Flies – I have a suggestion for the owner of Aponte's. Close the frickin door. I love the east coast style of pizza but theres a new invention called air-conditioning. I can't go in there anymore knowing that my toppings have wings that just flew out from the mens room. Outside of that...great pizza.
Simply the Best – I finally decided to go to Aponte's Pizzeria Family restaurant the other day with my wife and daughter . We've been wanting to try their New Jersey style pizza.
The pizza is truly a work of art. The toppings are fresh and plentiful and the pizza's are very large.
We've tried the Four Cheese, Meat Feast and the Spinach and Feta and they are definitely not your typical pizza place.
If you are looking for a great pizza in the Cincinnati area, please give Aponte's a try!
Good Pizza, worthy of another try: – Very good pizza. It is actually my son's favorite. It is NY style and very good. We like it not as dark as they make it, but one time we had it as they make it and it was still very good. The only reason I don't give it five stars is once we had a sausage pizza where the Italian sausage looked pink. My wife freaked out. It looked like they cut the raw sausage and put it on the pizza right before baking. The cheese is very very good and so is the crust. It is a little expensive but pizzas are very big. Want to go back and try the hoagies.
