    Value for Money ! cheap ,Pre-cooked but good pizza however overrated . It is ok when you have no time and want to eat different slices.Definitely prefer arrivederci pizza just 100 meters ahead. 7,7/10

    Bronx bills itself as authentic NY style pizza but the only thing authentically NY is their "holier than thou I'm doing you a favor" attitude. Stick with Landinis in Little Italy for TRULY GREAT pie
