Description

img_0638img_0640From Wall Street, Main Street and the various Side Streets of New York, our streets have been occupied by pizzerias since the turn of the twentieth century.  And while the current financial crisis has been debilitating to our economy and consequently consumers, pizza has remained an inexpensive staple of our modern time.  That is why I have recently started eating pizza more frequently.  Pizza has been a part of my life since early childhood in the living, breathing Smörgåsbord that is Brooklyn.  That is precisely why I find it more intriguing to discuss Little Joe’s III of East Setauket… Long Island!
Yes, Long Island.  Located on 30 Route 25A in East Setauket 631.689.8800, I recently found myself upon recommendation enjoying several of their slices, including their regular, white slice, and now my favorite, Grandma.  Do not get me wrong, I mean no disrespect to the pizzerias I have frequented during my time in Brooklyn and New York City – Grimaldi’s, L&B Spumoni Gardens, Nino’s Pizzeria, DiFara’s, and Totonno’s.  But I am convinced that the only thing separating Little Joe’s III from the above mentioned is proximity.  If Little Joe’s III were located in Brooklyn, or Manhattan, it would be a household name to many pizza lovers.
This comes as no surprise to me.  The owners are originally from Brooklyn and pay fair respect to details, using the finest and freshest ingredients regardless of cost.
As I alluded to before, the Grandma slice is my favorite, and I dare to say it rivals any competitor’s.  The owner informed me that the tomato sauce, which makes the slice, is his own recipe.  And unlike other pizzerias whom have failed to find the right balance of dough to make the perfect Grandma, Little Joe’s slice holds up – Literally.
I recommend anyone try this slice.

Little Joe’s III in E. Setauket gets 7 out of 8 slice!

editors notes:  I also recently tried this pizza upon a recommendation.  Although the Sicilian slice was average, I found the regular slice to be delicious!

    Little Joe's III is also a restaurant!! If you haven't tried the HOMEMADE LASAGNA yet, what are you waiting for!?!?!?!? It is simply delicious….I have frequented this pizzeria quite often, as I reside in the area. The owners are so nice and the food is great! They also cater for many occasions as well. I had a holiday party catered by Little Joe's III and my guests were in awe of the food!! I actually had to call Mike, the owner, and order extra trays because I was running out of food as my guests were eating and simply just could not get enough!! A MUST TRY for anyone that loves great Italian food!

    People from Brooklyn or anywhere in New York don't make pizza any better than people in other states.

    We LOVED their Grandma slices. Over the summer, we had guests down from Maine and we raved about how good their award winning pie was so we ordered a Grandma pie for delivery. An hour later, we received a plain large pie. We never said anything because we are not the complaining type. 2 Months later, this evening, I called and ordered a Large Grandma pie. An hour later we received a Large plain. I called and the owner argued with me and said that he took the order and that I had said it was a Large pie. Unbelievable!! There are 10 pizza places within a 5 mile radius of my house and I would have ordered from ANY of them if all I wanted was a Large pie. I would only order from them if it was for a Grandma pie. He continued to argue with me. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!! They may have the best Grandma slices but their business practices are going to ruin them. I will never go there again. I have been a resident of the town they are in for 35 years and will definitely spread the word!
