Dear Orlando Diners,
I am now writing my second review or post. This review is going to be about one of the most popular dishes world wide we all enjoy to eat. Yes, I am talking about pizza!! We usually have “pizza nite” at least 1-2x a month. I have eaten at many pizza places in Orlando. I must say we don’t have very good quality here in our fine city. However, we do have fine few decent pizza places that make a good pie. I am just spoiled. I have had pizza in New Haven, CT numerous of times. It’s to die for. New Haven has the best pizza on planet earth in my opinion. Pepe’s, Sally’s, Modern Apizza, and even Bar are great. Some of these places were there when my dad was growing up and they are still there to this day. These places are institutions. If you are ever in the New Haven area, try them, you will not be disappointed. However, back to the Orlando scene regarding pizza. Our latest visit was to NYPD Pizza in Metro West. We ordered a Margherita style pizza. It had sauce, cheese, basil, garlic, etc. Noting wrong with a basic style pizza once in a while. We specially ordered it to be thin and crispy, and slightly well done. NYPD Pizza delivered on all accounts. It was thin and crispy and done just like we like it. It was perfectly thin.
It was flavorful. It even seemed like a lite pizza if there is such a thing? It definitely was not heavy or thick, but just to our liking. You could taste the minced garlic and mozzarella cheese in its flavorful italian style sauce. Yum! You also can’t beat the beer special. 5 ice cold beers in a very cold bucket for $6 bucks, what a deal. We love ice cold beer with pizza; they really do go hand in hand in my opinion. Pizza and beer is a match made in heaven. NYPD has a variety of pizzas, wings, salads on its menu. It has TVs for viewing, but they need to invest in larger TVs in my opinion. But most people don’t go to watch TV they go for their tasty pizza. The service was attentive, friendly, and caring. Parking was easy and plenty of it. Prices- $ reasonably priced. Well it’s not pizza from New Haven but its very good pizza in Orlando. My bottom-line review, NYPD Pizza in Metro West gets a “Good” review. Go check it out!
