Pros: best pizza in the whole east coast!

I've been going to the IP3 regularly since 1991 and let me tell you, it is absolutely the best NY pizza to be found in all of North Carolina. I've looked!

The place looks like a total hole in the wall, and it is, but don't let that fool you. The same NY Italian guys have been working there the whole time I've been going, and they STILL recognize me and remember my order even after I've lived out of state for more than a year. They know their business!

Their large cheese pizza is just perfect. It's got that classic NY crust - nearly paper thin in the center, but not crispy, slightly floury on the bottom, with an edge crust which is crisp on the outside, doughy on the inside. The sauce has a strong sausage-type scent, due to the herbs and spices in it, and the cheese is tasty and applied super thinly with just a touch of olive oil.

If for some insane reason you just can't eat another pizza, go check out their Philly cheesesteak sandwich. You can get it with onions or plain and it's also to die for.

Heard about this place while I was in school, but never started going until after I graduated. They definitely have the best pizza I have ever had in my life, mainly because it is run by real Italian guys who know how to make their food. I've always heard the cheesesteaks are awesome, but I have never tried one because I can't stand not getting a pizza when I go there! If you are looking for great, and I mean really great pizza, make this place your first stop.

Pros: Great food, great atmosphere, prices can't be beat.

Cons: Sometimes it is too crowded to find a seat, but usually one clears up soon.

I don't think you will find another place that make the best cheesestake in the area, and also that have the best tasty pizza!! and for the price is awesome. The attention is kind and friendly and the place get crazy everytime that tar heels plays or it's any international soccer showing on the big screen. I definitely recommend this place!

This place is so great--I was looking for so long for Italian/NY-style pizza. There are REAL Italians running the place and the pizza cannot be beat. And the PRICES?!?! So cheap, especially on a special night. Pizza and a pitcher of Sam Adams for 10 bucks? Count me IN!
