Mike the delivery thug or is it worth it to get verbally abused for this pizza?

No, it is not. I just had the worst experience after having La nova Pizza delivered to our office. The delivery guy, Mike, was screaming, verbally abusive

You cannot beat the wings here. When you move away you appreciate even more the big meaty wings and the yummy sauce.

One of the more expensive places in Buffalo but worth the money.

i am a buffalo native. i have ordered la novas more times than i can remember: la novas has good wings, pizza and chicken fingers. they also have rude staff, inconsistent food quality, and crappy "alternative items" (e.g. eggplant parm - trust me from my experience, you're in buffalo, there are MUCH better places for dishes like this). they deliver everywhere - great. but 99% of the time i call, i get a rude, hurried individual on the phone. i get that i am probably calling when everyone else is - to the staff: its your job, deal with it. ive also been shorted wings on several occasions, sauces which i paid extra for, etc. in my opinion, there is better food and service (and cheaper prices) to be had elsewhere. just ask around (since this is not an endorsement for other area businesses).

Pros: generally good food, open late

Cons: inconsistent, watch the quantity, spec. order/spec requests, rude staff, pricier

.

Many customers like their barbecue chicken wings. They also have really good pizza and some fun specialty pizzas. Their prices are reasonable, and you get a lot of pizza.

The pizza isn't so bad if you don't mind supporting organized crime. 'Big Joe' Todaro was ousted from construction unions following FBI investigations. So now he hoodwinks the less educated citizens of the (notoriously corrupt) city of Buffalo into gulping down his overcooked whatever. His father had an opponent gutted, shot, strangled, and burned, on a farm in Wyoming county - nice guys, huh! and a "family tradition" to be sure. Rememeber, everytime you eat here, you are paying off the mob. Why not just buy dope?

By the way the wings are terrible! - but complain and you will "sleep with the fishes". In other words: STAY AWAY!

I've been to several pizza places around the country and still fail to find one better than LaNova. Everytime I go to Niagara Falls, the first thing I do the next day is take a trip down to LaNova for lunch. They have the second best wings in Buffalo (Anchor Bar is the best, by a close margin). They have several different kinds of pizza, and every one of them is great!

born and raised in buffalo on the west side where la novas is located , this place has become a trade mark to me and a lot of other people. the first time i had la novas i was 5 yrs old im now 30 this place has been around longer than me i think that alone says enough. The pizza what more could any one ask for. and the wings i have been away from buffalo for the past five years and i have not found any place that has even come close to the sauce. lets face it we have had some true italians in buffalo and this place was started by one of them you could stop 100 people in buffalo and not here what you herd from the buffalo bill he is probably not from buffalo and if he is he came from the suburbs... columbus,oh

Food is below average, service is non- existant. The only good thing I can say is that the sit down area is very nicely decorated.

La Nova is by far the best pizza around. In looking at some of the other reviews, it is apparent that some of you don't know what good pizza is! There is no better, and the bbq wings are great. It is a little pricey, but if you want the best you have to pay for it! As far as service, I don't know about the Main St location but I have never waited more than a minute at the Ferry location because they have so many people working. I've been all over and I have yet to find food that compares.

Pros: Pizza, Wings, Fast pickup

Cons: Slow delivery

.

The pizza is quite disappointing as it is extremely dry with very little sauce. It is well below average at best. I have had better frozen pizzas from Freschetta. The chicken wing sauce is excellent but the actual chicken wings are small. LaNova charges more and gives you less. Buy the sauce and make your own wings at home. The sandwiches are ok but pricey. Since the fire, the restaurant looks new.

The city location is something to be desired. You have to look over your shoulder as the neighborhood the pizzeria is located in is questionable to say the least. I suggest that LaNova start making their pizzerias with first rate mozzarella cheese, add more sauce and upgrade your chicken wings to large from small that you currently serve.

I also think LaNova should provide security to walk you to your car after you pick up your order.

I am originally from Buffalo, N.Y.. My occupation has required me to leave the area. I also do a lot of traveling. I have been across the ocean while in the Navy and all over the U.S.. In my travels I have yet to find pizza as good as LaNova's! Wings too! I am firmly convinced that New York State is the mecca of pizza and wings. LaNova's is the "royal palace"!

Pros: Always Fresh, Price/Portion ratio, Friendly Service

I read the negative and positive, each very contridicting, so I decided to try it for myself. La Nova is beyond good. From the second I walked in the door I was treated like family and my purchase mattered. I highly reccomend La Nova and hope you feel the same.

The last pizza was topped with tomatoes and onions was so mushy practically needed a spoon to eat it. Their BBQ wings are the absolute BEST!!!!

The service there is the worst and the food is very sloppy for the money. Everything in the pizzeria in general seemed to run a lot smoother about a year ago, in regards to your 5151 main street location. I think that you should do some serious evaluating in regards to who you have run the place. The customer service in the place has dropped substantually since I have personally seen different people working behind the counter. My place of employment orders a lot of food from your establishment quite often and I have to say that more recently we have hesitated to order, due to the high prices and poor food in return. I do not think that my place of employment would mind the prices quite as much if the food backed it self up. I hope this letter truly opens someone at the pizzeria's eyes.

Since I am not a wing eater and tend to be picky I did not eat here until they moved to Williamsville... First time was no good... pizza had slid in delivery and was goopy.. But they fixed the problem and we have not had a problem since. I recommend the New York style pizza.. It is the bomb! I also love their fingers... a double order comes with fries and you can get any of their awesome sauces on them! I give many thumbs up.. The parking lot is crazy though!

I haven't had Pizza Junction pizza so I can't rate it, but La Nova is tied for my favorite. It has a sweet tasting sauce, the cheese is slightly browned on top to give a slight crispness to it, and the crust isn't too thick or too thin. It tastes great reheated and cold too!!

I am a long-time fan of LaNova Pizza. If I didn't know better, I'd swear they must have put a dependecy drug in the dough. Every time I am back in Buffalo I am at the mercy of my stomach cravings for this increadible Italian pie made any way you want it. They also have a large selection of pre-made pizza topping combination masterpieces that take your mouth to a place it's never known before and will never want to leave. LaNova has the competition gasping for air and the local public panting for pie. There is one reason this place has grown from a handful of faithful employees to the largest independantly owned pizza joint in the entire country...IT'S THE VERY BEST!!!

Amazing...truly the best pizza goin' made by a family that knows their stuff! A little pricey as far as pizza goes, but their BBQ wings are nothing short of orgasmic...so it's well worth it!! If you you're a little shy about going into the city- visit the one in Amherst....it's in a little nicer area.

Being a Buffalo original..I must say that one thing I miss are La Novas Pit wings. I went to Lafayette high school with a lot of the kids from La Novas and we always thought they were like the coolest kids to have access to those wings. Ha Ha!! The pizza is not the best. But keep up the good work on those subs and wings for years to come
