Village Voice's Description
Located in the weed-choked neighborhood where Woody Guthrie lived out his final years, Totonno's sports the best fresh mozzarella of any pizzeria in town. That this cheese is a little soupy, making the pie damp, is fine with us. Just grab a fork!
Tips from foursquare
Totonno's (Coney Island) will serve the same slice-free menu of wood-fired pizzas: Margherita, Bianca, & Neapolitan. Nothing against young guns but a near-century of pizza-making counts for something.
The plain pie is perfectly charred with a thin, crisp crust that bubbles and buckles in the heat of the coal oven, topped with a bright tomato sauce and sparingly applied dabs of creamy fresh mozz.
One of New York's most renowned pizzerias. Incomparable New York-style pies on Coney Island.
A pizza worth the hour-long subway ride, and the wait at the coor – the margherita is simply amazing. The crust is flavorful and crispy.
Whatever you do, DON'T ASK FOR A MENU. There are none, as Totonno's matriarch Louise "Cookie" Ciminieri will be quick to remind you. Just check the menu board in the back of the restaurant.
