I ordered pizze from this store, and said I'd pick it up in about ten minutes. I took a taxi to get there, spent money to get there from my home. When I arrived, the people behind the counter told me they remembered speaking with me, but had not prepared the pizza. Only AFTER I arrived did they start preparing. The only problem with their waiting until I arrived was that I had to pay my taxi while he stood and waited. I explained to the people behind the counter how the whole reason for calling in advance was so that they actually prepare the pizza IN ADVANCE. I received a blank stare, and rudeness. It's a shame. The pizza is great, but the service is crappy and rude. I will not go back. I'd prefer to be treated like a human being. SHAME!!!

Okay, so I never like to diss a restaurant, but we went here after a night of drinking to get that drunken slice of pizza, only to see roaches in the glass case! It was disgusting and I will never have Ray's original pizza again!

My better hald and I really enjoyed the great pizza and great wervice at Ray's. With so many pizza shops in NYC it's rare that you find this authentic. We'll be back for a longer with friends very soon.

Ray's Pizza is good, the service is friendly, and it's clean. You have no idea how many other crap pizza stores there are out there that serve not only stale food but seem to be so un-hygenic. Ray's is worth the experience, and it will run you up more than a regular pizza slice but you're definitely going to get a fresh great slice.

What a great alternative to delivery. I'm still on the hunt for the best pizza in NY and I think that Amadeus pizza company is in the running. I love their pizza and it's better than delivery because you can pick it up and make it when you want. It only takes 10 minutes and it's so much better than delivery. Even I can't mess that up!

I love pizza and had the chance to try many while working for www.seamlessweb. com and that is how I found Amadeus Pizza. The first time I tried them I never tried anything else and always recommended that we order from them in the office. They were always timely and the food was always hot. They alway sent me the extras I asked for with no problems. The delivery people were courteous and deserving of a good tip. I no longer work there but still make sure that I stop by for a slice. This is definately one of THE BEST pizza places in the city.

Pros: Fast hot delicious pizza

Cons: not near me

This has to be the worst food I have ever eaten. You are better off going to your local deli and buying frozen pizza or pasta and microwaving it. Soggy pizza borderline sweaty flavorless pasta, smelly mushy calamari. We threw everything out! ugggg beware.. The other reviews were either by family members or people forced to review against their will. No New Yorker would Take a second Bite

f you pass in front of this place you can't help but be drawn inside. The quirkiness of the window display and the smell of the food are too inviting. But the slowest service will make sure you dont get value for money.
If the crowds of new york are proving too much, head here. It's sure to perk you up and bring a smile to your face if you are not expecting a fast service

Pros: delicious pizza that makes you feel in italy

Cons: slowest service

I don't know what they put in their pizzas but it sure is good. The place is not good, though. I'd rather take out some good hot pizza and eat it in a more conducive room or something.

Delicious Pizza. There's nothing I can add that other users haven't already said; pizza had wonderful doughy crust, zesty sauce (perhaps a little dry), cheese firmly in place and not swimming around (i.e. not overwhelming the sauce). Expansive menu including variety of salads and hoagies, but none of which I can speak to.

Service is what you'd expect from a parlor like this, maybe a little below. On one occasion, there was an Egyptian behind the counter at the Chelsea location who was astonishingly condescending, confrontational, and rude, not just to me but making fun of other patrons who either just leave the store or have their backs turned (and in case you're wondering how I know he's Egyptian, it's because he spent half the time making jokes about Asians and African-Americans that I had to ask). (Perhaps his humor was lost in translation?) Ultimately, uncomfortable and harassing. Other occasions haven't been special either; not friendly staff, can be surprisingly SLOW at times.

Atmosphere is non-existent. Then again, you can't eat that and for the price and quality of the pizza, very few top.

I really fell in love with the pizza here, It was very fresh when i got it, warm, right out the oven, the cheese was delicious, the crust was perfect, I have no complaints about it! The price is very reasonable and the location is great, Its a great lunch spot for my co workers and I. I would highly suggest to check this place out!

Not only was this the greatest pizza in the city but the greatest pizza I have ever tried! Its delicious, the crust, the cheese, the toppings, everything about it. The food took about 5 minutes to get and it was reasonably priced, this place is def worth every penny anway. I would have to agree with everyone that its just amazing, nothing else to say, but great food. Keep up the good work Rays!

Service is O.K. and a good place for a slice. Very good crust on a very flavorful Pizza. Ray's is as good a Pizza as you will find in New York.

I ordered from Ray's Pizza tonight and waited 1 hour and 45 minutes for my food to arrive. I called Ray's Pizza multiple times and was told each time that the delivery man was '5 minutes away' or that he was even 'in the building'. Ray's refused to give my the food for free, nor even any sort of discount. I would not have paid for it but took pity on the delivery man who said that if I did not then he would have to pay himself. That is outrageous. Absolutely outrageous. Do not order food from Ray's Pizza.

We ate at Ray's as much as possible. There are several places that say Ray's Pizza and they are all the greatest. My husband got a calzone and said that if he had been standing up when eating it, his legs would have caved. It's that good. Any pizza you get is great too. We were watching an old rerun of S.(citysearch won't accept this word) and the City the other night and they were at this Ray's eating and "Steve" says it's the best in the city. Without a doubt!

I asked a couple of locals where to grap a slice, and they all said go to Ray's
They were right I stopped by Ray's for a slice multiple times while in town for work.

I've ordered from Ray's Pizza on 856 8th Ave. so many times! They're ALWAYS fast & their food is soooo delicious! I even go there just to sit in the place! It's amazing to see how many people come from all over, to this 1 pizzeria. It's known everywhere! I was shocked, because people just wanted to buy pizza to fly back home. I mean, that's got to say something about it, right? Not to mention, this is celebrity hide away. I was talking to the owner, and since he delivers so often to "The David Letterman Show", he gets a lot of stars that come in wanting to eat his pizza. The other day, I ran into John Travolta eating pizza there... I over heard John telling one of the workers that he loves the pizza there... So, great food, tons of "entertainment". What more can you ask for?

Having lived on the next block from Ray's of 8th Avenue, I can attest that of all the pizza restaurants in the neighborhood, Ray's was the best all-round for pizza and service. Try the individual pizza with multiple toppings. The pizza maker never missed an order, and the pizza was always delivered hot to 888 8th Avenue in no time. Top honors!
