The Editors at Foodenator had the opportunity to check out some pizza in Midtown West, Manhattan recently. After searching the internet for a tasty piece of New York Pizza, we decided to check out Il Mare, located right by Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.
You can choose to purchase your pizza by the pie or by the slice and there are a variety of flavors to choose from as well. We decided to try the traditional slice of Cheese Pizza and a slice of the Tomato Basil.
First we tried the Cheese Pizza. The first bite was literally heaven in our mouth. There was a perfect amount of each ingredient and it almost melted. The crust is thinner and by the time you get to the end you just want to grab another slice before finishing the crust because the toppings are so good. The sauce used on the pizza is a little too sweet which was our only regret with the pizza.
The Tomato Basil pizza was also very good. They use several different kinds of cheese on the pizza including a fresh mozzarella. We liked that we had a variety of choices by the slice and the staff was very fast and efficient. The prices are very reasonable and you can be in and out of the restaurant in about 15 minutes.
Overall, we give Il Mare 4 out of 5 stars!! Work a trip to Penn Station to check out their pizza.
