love the pizza but cannot stand to receive horrible waitress service. They are disrespectful, never say thank you or you're welcome, toss pizza on table, put check on table with their back to you. Total opposite of their service years ago.

I recently had the treat of tasting Denino's Margharita pizza - it was the first time ever trying their place as I was always going to Trattoria Rustica but was getting sick of their soggy pizza.

The crust at Denino's was excellent along with the sauce and cheese....it was amazing!
I couldn't get enough of that pizza and they are going to be my new place to get pizza.

The restaurant is a little busy -- so I've done takeout -- and they are always fast and friendly when I pick it up.

Found this gem of a place from a google search on my iphone. I just finished the FIVE BORO BIKE TOUR and wanted to find a decent place for some good pizza. This place had about 39/40 great reviews and I was definitely not disappointed. After being raked over the coals for average food in Manhattan it was a welcomed reprieve. It's a nice quant tavern with a pizzeria in the back and no nonsense service. Most of the people seemed like locals and the place had a real nice family feel to it. If you like fresh delicious pizza then this place delivers. The price was great especially for NY standards. No hype just it just delivers. Across the street there's a ice cream stand that is just as good. I think it was called Ralph's. GO you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to go again.

Unbelievably, other tables came and went before we even got our 1 appetizer of fried calamari. Then other tables came and went before we got our two pies. I was thisclose to leaving NO TIP but I decided to ask another waitress if they pool tips. They do pool tips, so I left 20%, otherwise I would have left nothing for Carla our waitress. I have never had such horrible service, but please note that the other waitresses were doing a great job. Great food.
I would definitely go back, but if Carla waits on us, I'd have to politely ask for another waitress.

How this place continues to be rated best pizza on SI is beyond me. Joe & Pat's is way better all around. Yes, it's a different style of pizza but taste is taste. I guess at $11 a pie it's a bargain these days. Salvatore of Soho on Hylan has an excellent coal fired pie too. $18 for the pie but a delicious pie.

It was our first (and last) time there. The place was jammed and this seemed to jive with the "legend" that they had fantastic pizza. It was a long wait for our table. The green salad was very generous in size and fresh . We ordered two pies, a sausage/meatball and a mushroom/onion; they were terrible. There was barely any flavor, the entire crust was over cooked to a hard crisp and ingredients appeared to be used very sparingly. We debated sending them back but the pies on nearby tables appeared to be in the same shape and we were not hopeful for a significant improvement. The waitress had no problem getting us $drinks$ but took forever with 2 reminders to get us water. Perhaps they were legends in their time but that time has passed.

Cons: bad pizza, long wait, difficult parking

This place is excellent.
The pizza is by far way better than Brothers.
The wait can be a little long for pick-up as they do not deliver, and the dining area is always packed... but it is well worth the wait.
Great family place.

I dont know what all the rave is about or who is responsable for it but this place aint that good. The crust is raw a disgusting. The sauce is ok the cheese is typical. I ordered the pizza well-done because I noticed the pizza's being brought to other tables were undone and "raw". Well when ours came out it still wasnt cooked right. I wanted to send it back but the waitress said I would still have to pay for this pizza and she just rambled on how the pizza maker wouldnt be able to cook it any more or else he might burn it. This is the one of the worst pizza's on Staten Island.

I've been there twice and was disappointed. I ordered the calamari and there was no squid in it! and the pizza pies(i had the garbage pie and magarita pie) were no big deal. I had frozen pizza that tasted better.

What kind of pizza do you like? If you like pizza that is more traditionally Italian (thin crust) Then this is your place. I like New York style pizza. The place is very crowded so call in your order first and they don't deliver.

I order my pizza on the phone so I could pick it up, from the other reviews I was sure it would be a hit. NOT! first they could not find my order, then when I did get a pizza that thing was coooold. *sigh* also NO PARKING! That place was so packed they need to get a bigger parking lot! Cold pizza, lost order... not coming back...

Pizza is excellent, services is great along with the prices. The little old lady Rose is the sweetest thing ever and has been there for 80 something years, but watch out for the owners wife. She has a really bad attitude. The owner should really tell his wife to stay home. Overall the place is outstanding!

I'm a lifelong Staten Islander, and I love food second only to my girlfrind and my parents - LOL! I developed a taste for such critters as crabs, squid and even escargot (SNAILS!) and when I was only about 7! But I never got to Denino's until recently and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Both my lady (who's from Brooklyn and also knows more than a thing or two about quality pizza and Italian food) went recently and came away with the same impression - at least this particlur visit, anyway: certainly better than many pizzas on the Island, but also very overhyped. The crust was crispy and great, but the toppings were kind of average to us. Very good sauce - but just not enough of it, and the same overly salty-tasting processed cheese typically used everywhere else unless you request a fresh mozzarella or margarita pie (Like Valducci's on AMboy Road). I'm not saying we didn't like it - it was very tasty. But, pizza this heavily-hyped should feature chunks of fresh san marzano tomatoes (like Naples 45 in the city), fresh basil and homemade mozzarella akin to what a fine restuarant would produce versus a run-of-the-mill pizza joint #1000 would make. If you want truly great and unique pizza, Joe & Pats on Vicory Blvd near Manor Road is worlds better in this regard. Joe & Pats' crust is much thinner and crispier, yet neither flops over nor is too brittle, and is smothered in truly frsh, homemade-tasting tomato sauce (sweet, chunky and rich with a palpable extra virgin oil taste) and generous but not overdone splotches of fresh mozzarella.
Bottom line: Quite good, but just not the 'greatest=on-the-planet' standout everyone makes it out to be...

Awesome pizza, though the service could use a little bit of help. I would like to go there every week, but I'll get FAT!! It's worth the wait, but that's becasue the place is very popular. Besides, there's a cd jukbox, a bar and they're always showing the local teams on the tv's.

I am absolutely amazed at how perfect the crust on this pie is made. For a serious fan of thin slice pizza, Denino's tops everyone in and around NYCNY. We ordered a sauage and pepper pie and 2 of us at the whole huge thing. It was spectacular. The night before I unloaded 70 bucks for an awesome meal, but this pizza pie at Denino's will forever stay in my memory as the best damned pizza around.

We are blessed on Staten Island with 2 , no actually 3, of the finest pizza makers in all of NYC. This tavern has been family owned and operated for over 50 years and known for one thing and one thing done very well. Thin crusted pizza that a person can devour. Try the plain pizza and a pitcher of SanGria and find yourself walking out with a 20 dollar check and skip across the street and finish it with an Italian lemon ices at Ralphs and man you are in heaven@@

That's their motto and their claim to fame. The absolutely BEST pizza crust in New York City and possibly the world. Our babies teethed on that crust and so have loved Denno's almost since birth. It's barroom pizza, no yuppie goat cheese and watercress concoctions - just a premium crust topped with the standard favorites. Will DeNino's be voted NUMBER ONE? No. Staten Island's population is dwarfed by the other boroughs. We don't have enough voters to win. But in a taste-test competition, Denino'w would win hands down.

I grew up going here and it was always a treat to go to Denino's. Their garbage and MRO (meatball, ricotta & onion) pies are just yummy. Nothing too fancy around here, just a good NY slice with a splash of sterotypical Staten Island. (The couple in matching sweatsuits just add to the charm.) You can even get a glass of domestic draft for 75 cents, although the glass is on the small side. Fried calamari and buffalo wings will round out your calorie fest. And, don't forget to go across the street for dessert and the best Italian ices at Ralph's.

Deninos serves excellent inexpensive thin crust pizza that is served hot and quick. The atmosphere is great for a couple and even for parties of 20+. I highly reccomend going to Deninos. Although the menu (anything other then pizza) is small, everything on it is EXCELLENT. If you are lucky enough to attend Deninos in the summer make sure you leave room for dessert, Ralph's Famous Italian Ices is right across the street!!

Had worked up an hearty appettie after catching XXX at the UA FOREST STADIUM and the kitchen was about to close at 10:30 on a Sunday nite. Despite that they seated us and took our order for a large pie with onions. What can I say... the crust was perfectly crispy and the sauce was delicious. They didn't scimp on the onions !!! Perfectly cooked with that soft texture and sweetness. The atmosphere isn't ornate but hey..the pizza is really great. They are adding more seating and have a private room in the back for parties. The bar area welcomes the locals. Denino's is definitely worth a trip to Staten Island. Make a day of it.. Go to the beach on the south shore and then hit Denino's for a quick bite before or after the movies.
