A slice of Long Island City has made its way to Astoria.
The popular pizzeria, sLICe, which opened on Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City nearly 18 months ago, has taken over space on 30th Avenue, opening another pizza joint by the same name.
“The one in Long Island City is doing really well,” said co-owner Anthony Perez, who along with his business partners own sLICe, Blend and Blend on the Water in Long Island City.
The menu at the 37-08 30th Avenue will be the same as what it is in Long Island City and the look is very similar, Perez said.
A New York style pie goes for around $17 and a slice $2.50. The venue offers items such as wings, meatball sandwiches, heroes, salads, pasta and fried calamari.
“There is a yearning for New York style pizza, something simple that people can remember from their childhood,” he said.
The venue has space for about 12 customers and there is backyard space. Perez said that they plan to open the rear yard next summer.
Lucky Pizza is about a block from the # 7 Train at Queens Plaza. I believe there is a Checkers restaurant (Fast Food) near it.
Out one in the Court Square area. Most of he Pizza places there are gone. Queens Plaza Lucky Pizza is very good however. One closer would be nice.
They deliver and it’s like a 10 minute walk. How close does pizza have to be?
is Lucky Pizza next to the Indian restaurant / subway?
Yes it’s next to checkers. Best pizza in Long Island city. Not a big fan of SLice I rather order from Lucky!!
I’ll have to check that out. I’m in the area often.
Thank you for the suggestion
sLICe is good pizza but nothing special. It’s your generic pizza that doesn’t move to wow you. Tastes like the $1 pizza in Manhattan I used to get near a bar
Only they charge $2.50
Had pizza from Slice the other day. Much better then the old pizzeria that was across the street on Vernon but still it wasn’t great. The sauce has too much oregano and it’s a bit acidic, imo. For pizza in LIC Bella Via would be my favorite by far as they’re pretty consistent with good pies (no slices though).
Love this place. A good no-bullshit pizzeria with a nice slice. Go on, know-it-alls, shoot me down. The fact that you aren’t at sLICe messing it up for me makes me love the place even more!
it’s standard pizza. nothing special.
Exactly. Which is why it’s good. They’re not trying to appeal to gourmands and they do a decent slice.
Decent is not good. $2.50 for decent is not good. Regular $1 pizza elsewhere tastes the same.
