La Margherita Pizza Medford Long Island

La margeritaHad an old friend come and pick me up for lunch, to take me to a pizza place he thought was the best around the area.  La Margherita Pizza in Medford is located kind of in a fork in the road.  Very odd location for this place, but it seemed to be doing a good business.  I ordered only one slice to give it a try.

La Margherita Pizza is located on 1229 Station Road in Medford 631-924-0048.  Sorry John but this place was certainly not one of the better slices I have had.  I found the sauce a bit nasty actually.  The cheese was good but the crust was soggy.  There was too much sauce on this slice.  And the sauce was not smooth or sweet.  Didn't really like it enough to get a second slice.

The crust was nice tasting and because of this I will not totally blast this establishment.  They could have done better.  Guess John will not be picking the places in the future.  Way too many others around the area that probably taste much better that we missed due to this place.  I am still kind of curious how La Margherita could make the outrageous claim that they are the "The Original Brick Oven Pizza" place?  Wasn't Lombari's the original?  Guess the food channel and every other history book on pizza has their information wrong, and Lombardi's wasn't the first pizza place in New York.  Someone should tell them that La Margherita in Medford Long Island beat Lombardi to it.

What is with all these pizza places having incredibly crappy websites?  I am here to redesign any site people email me about.  You all need it!

La Margherita in Medford gets 3 out of 8 slices.

    I came across your site and decided to check out if you've visited one of my favorite pizza places. I was very surprised you gave them such a bad rating. You mentioned that the “crust was soggy” and the “sauce was not smooth or sweet”. The reason I fell for their pizza was because crust had a nice crisp crunch and the sauce was perfect! I've been there several times and have not once ran into a “soggy slice”. But you even contradicted your review saying the crust had a nice taste. Maybe someday you can go back and give it another try. Other reviews and especially the locals will completely disagree with your opinion, “pizzaexpert”. You can let your friend John know that we still agree with him that this pizza is easily best in the area.

    AMEN, This “pizzaexpert” is anything but. he would not know good pizza if it smacked him in the face. Go back to reviewing what you know….although I fear that is not much.

    Ive lived in Medford for a couple of years now. Today was the first time I have been to La Margherita and I think the pizza and the food was GREAT!

    I agree with the reviewer – if you want decent pizza in Medford, go to Medford Pastaria (by Island Rec) or my choice, Casa Gia (Stop and Shop shopping center)…some of the ones along 112 are decent as well (Bianca Luna for one)

    Patchogue is also a great town for pizza with Delfiore (new location on E. Main), Jon Anthony's (where Burrito Express used to be on 112 by Dunkin Donuts) and Gino's (W. Main).

    La Margherita used to be good but something changed and I can't stand it.

    I just happen to think that they are average at best. There are plenty of other amazing places near the area that I would prefer to eat at. Do you consider these two places the best you have had?

    You should have gone to the Pastaria in Medford. Their pizza is always good.

    La Margherita is easily the best Grandmas pie on the island. We don’t order from anywhere else.
    @Nyratk1: Its Cafe Gia, and none of the pizza places on 112 are note worthy. Del Fiore does make some damned fine specialty slices, so I have to agree with you there, but even their Grandmas is no match for La Margherita.
