Their pizza is delicious. We came multiple times and got a Tomato basil pizza, which has just tomatoes, basil, and olive oil - no cheese - which is important because we will get sick if we have cheese. Then yesterday, they accidentally gave us a similar pizza but with cheese. We came back and explained the mishap, and instead of correcting the situation, the young ladies working there were rude to us, and even had the audacity to lie to our faces, saying that there is "never" a pizza without cheese, that they don't make any pizzas without cheese, and that that would be "just bread" (It seems they forgot about garlic knots?). In any case, we asked for a refund, since even after explaining we had just had the pizza yesterday, they denied it. We then e-mailed the store, when the "manager" replied insisting no such pizza exists, either. (I have a feeling it was the young ladies at the store, as the grammar was pretty terrible). We even sent a picture we had taken of the pizza from the day before, and a screen shot of the menu with the cheeseless pizza on it, and received a snarky reply back. I am utterly appalled at the way we were treated and am very disappointed, as we had always heard such good things about them, and the pizza (the allegedly non-existent one) was so good.

Eddie and Sams New York Pizza is a plain downtown dive with a few outside seats and an unspectacular inside facility. When you see people pile into the place, you know it is the food.

Thier stuffed crust is excellent and thier pizzas are fairly authentic: Neopolitan, SIcilian, and Primavera/ Their sausage was sliced Tampa-style so I guess they have been out of NYC for a time..

A great option is the stuffed veggie pizza with sauteed spinach and brocolli. As for the 20" giants - I'll wait until I have luinch with four hungry people.

Cons: Few outside tables and little atmosphere

For the uneducated about water... you must not know much about beer either.. because where the water counts all the breweries built their plants.. just look at any Budwiser label and you'll find the best water... if you like the pizza in other joints don't post it here just shows you are not a true nyc pizza connoisseur. PS the secret is the water.. that's why the Kiser rolls don't compare to the rolls up north either... do you ever hear anyone say "Buttered Roll and Coffee to go" ... LOL

I don't know about the rest of you but I went to visit my husband at work in Downtown tampa, he brought me to this Pizza place they go to on their lunch break.... let me tell you this tasted like frozen pizza... and not good frozen pizza. First of all they claim to use REAL NY WATER.... where do they get it.. from the Hudson River? Beside Water doesn't make the pizza... clearly, I just don't understand how some people love this pizza.. It really is just plain yucky. I will stick to a real NY Pizza place over in Carrolwood!

I have seen the water stored upstairs and ready to be used for making the pizza. They receive to truck loads a year from a spring in NY.

Lived in NY all my life... just moved to tampa and this pizza is the real deal. Best Pizza in Florida... only one problem, they have the strangest hours ever. I went there on a Monday and Saturday evening and they were closed.... they need a better location too. Other than that the pizza is great and is a must if you like real NY style pizza.

You can visit their website which has all the informatiom you will need to experience the best! This is my favorite place ever! There website is simply BestNewYorkPizza

they say they use NY water, what a marketing hoax! ! water weighs too much to ship from NY. who would want to use nasty NY water anyway??? I would rather have clean bottled or filtered water. NY Water does not make the pizza taste good or bad. it is the ingredients. Think about it, how many bad pizza places are in NYC anyway?? right?? has nothing to do with the water.
Anyway, i tried the food, survived, barely. felt nausea afterwards. place was so dirty, too. Much better places in tampa. i'll stick with Sally Oneils or NYPD Pizza. both are much better.

Pros: close to my work. thats it

Cons: dirty restaurant, fake advertising(NY water), food quality, service

Growing up in the South and until I lived in Queens for 5 years I thought nothing could top Pizza Hut. How wrong! And when I moved back here I thought Id never get that one-of-a-kind New York slice without hoping a plane to the Big Apple. Until I found Eddie and Sams. Its the real deal. Get a slice or calzone, cram into the hot and loud place at lunch and youll swear youre on the Lower East side. That is until you try to hail a cab without making a phone call first. Ive had better meatball sandwiches, but this is THE place for real NY pizza.

Lots of pictures of New York City can be found at this pizza oasis in the middle of Downtown Tampa. It is for good reason. This pizza is as close to Midtown New York City as you can get. Transplanted folks from the Big Apple needing to rediscover their roots should head to Eddie & Sams. Don't know if it is true or not but I heard the quality is due to the fact that they import their water from NYC. People in NYC actually dring water from their faucets. They also have snow and dirty streets!

Pros: The Pizza

.

Eddie and Sam's is by far the best pizza in Tampa Bay. I have been to a lot of pizza places in Tampa, and none of them come close to this place. Their specialty is NY style pizza, but they have sicilian, white pizza, calzones, stromboli, etc.

I dare you to try this pizza and say it is not the best pizza in the Tampa Bay area and possible ever. Try it any way u want. Plus you can get 2 slices and a drink for $5. But dont stop at pizza. This place doesnt make anything that is not appealing to your tastebuds. I recommend the cheese steak, meatball, turkey club subs, Chicken Parm roll, Ziti, any pasta dish for that matter and fantasic wings too. My personal Fav is Brocolli on white sause pizza. They take brocolli saute in olive oil and garlic on a white sause pizza topped with moza cheese. Staff is friendly from head cook Josh, or Matt, Hank, Mike and guys behind the counter. Great Eats at a good price.

Having relocated to Tampa from NY a number of years ago, It is an unbelievable relief to find such an authentic pizzareia. The staff is friendly and the food is GREAT.

By far the best pizza in Florida. I'm from the Northeast and I know good pizza. I drive from St. Petersburg to downtown Tampa just to have their pizza. I also recommend the antipasta and the chicken parm sandwich.

I am another one of those snobby native New Yorkers who complains that everything is better back in New York. That said, I have to say that Eddie & Sam's can hold its own to any pizza up north. If you don't like it, you don't know pizza.

Eddie and Sam's is by far the best pizza I have tasted, I would say its as good or maybe better than alot of the pizza places in N.Y !!!! I love the atmosphere and the hustle and bustle of the place. I've never had a problem getting whatever I wanted (even chicken rolls) at anytime even after 7pm and now they are open on Saturdays aswell I take the kids, the service is great. My personal favorite is the tomato basil,mmmm! A must if you are in downtown tampa.

I live in Brandon. I visit Eddie's and Sam's at least once a week via the Selmon Expressway. This Pizza restaurant is by far the best I have ever tasted in Florida. I am originally from Philly with many relatives in NY. I realize the hours are not for everyone in Hillsborough County, but plan a day, take your friends, itis well worth it. The lunch specials are awesome. "Hats off" to you guys at Eddie's and Sam's. You have my business and I tell everyone to stop by and get a wonderful pizza !!

Pros: FOOD, SERVICE, VALUE

Cons: , NO AIR COND., NEED LONGER HOURS.

.

Eddie and Sams is a favorite spot for myself and my coworkers to visit any day of the week. I can honestly say that this is the closest pizza to a real New York pizza - just fabulous. If you can handle the orders taken quickly and yelled out, along with a hot restaurant with no air conditioning, it's well worth it in the end!

Eddie & Sams provides a refreshing change from the typical pathetic Florida Pizza joints. Unfortunately, unless you can get to its Downtown Tampa Location during the hours of 9-5 you will not be able to experience it. It seems that after 5 O'Clock the ovens are either broken or they are all out of the delicious chicken rolls. What irks me, is that they should simply whip up another chicken roll but they simply dont seem to care about the consumer. Its a shame, the food is absolutely amazing, its too bad they dont know how to run a business
