Review: Giorgio’s PizzaAuthor: WIBIA | Filed under: Food Reviews, Location: Indianapolis, IN
9 East Market St.
I love NY Style Pizza by the slice. I hijacked a post on Indianapolis Restaurant Scene and a few people mentioned that Giorgio’s Pizza is some of the best NY Pizza in town. I was downtown around 9 pm the Saturday before the Indy 500, so there was a nice crowd. I stopped in for a slice and a pop.
What I Ate: Slice of Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza and a pop $3.75
My first impression is that the pizza line looked pretty stale. The lasagna and chicken parm almost looked plastic-y. Armed with an iron stomach, I wasn’t that nervous. The pizza was reheated in the oven and then quickly handed over the counter.
I tried to execute the traditional NY Style bend and the pizza crust literally cracked and created a fault line on my slice from crust to tip. Bad sign. The crust was pretty shameful. Very dry, no flavor and nothing redeeming about it. The ingredients were sub standard. The rabbit turd sausage added little flavor and the pepperoni was an after thought. They had a little dish of pepperoni sitting out on the counter so they can add it to any slice. I hate that method. All ingredients need to be added with intent.
Would I Buy It Again? No, I would rather go see Barry Manilow with my mother. Honestly the worst slice of NY pizza that I have ever had…including Sbarro and mall pizzerias. Maybe I need to go back at lunch when things are fresh, but there was so much sloppiness here, I would never do it. Plus, their pizza should be good regardless of what time of the day it is, so I can’t say that I would entertain that excuse.
Also, I can’t say I understand the decor here. Rotting vegetables right on the edge of the pizza serving station? DISGUSTING.
To be fair (as if I usually care…), read this entirely different review. The place looks clean and the food actually looks ok.
