The original location is located in Forest Hills, but they also have a branch on the Upper East Side that serves up crisp, thin-crust pizza if you're not up for the trip into Queens. Established in 1993, Nick's Pizza uses a gas-fired oven to cook their pizza and calzones. If you still have room after dinner, they offer delicious cannoli for dessert. Nick's locations all have typical Italian restaurant offerings as well, but the pizza is the true star. Nick's also sets themselves apart by using local purveyors for ingredients when possible.
