After years of hearing about Slice n Ice in Coconut Grove, Miami, I finally managed to go and check it out. Seems like every week I get someone angrily emailing me complaining that I never took the time to review it. People have claimed this was the best slice in Miami. Too bad I previously heard Miamis Best Pizza was also the best slice and that wasn’t even remotely close to the best slice down here. So it was hard to accept that Slice n Ice would be any better.
Slice n ice is this little inconspicuous establishment located as you drive towards coconut grove from us1. I must have passed the place dozens of time not even realizing it was a local favorite before getting all the feedback from our readers. Slice n ice is a walk up pizza joint, with no tables, no parking, no menu and no shortage of great pizza!
I ordered up a couple of slices and waited patiently for them to arrive, enjoying the beautiful Miami night, which surprisingly had a breeze.  The pleasant girl behind the counter asked me if it was to stay or go, and I said I will stay, where do I sit.  She comically pointed to the counter to the right of me where I was standing.  So, note readers, there are no tables.
While I was waiting, I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of business Slice n’ Ice does. They have a pretty amazing amount of foot traffic, considering parking sucks, and they have no seats.  The slices came out, and it became immediately evident that this would be a damn good slice of pizza. It smelled good, my hand was burning from underneath the paper plate, and the slice was firm.  It reminded me of a pizza place my grandfather used to take me to near the subway in upper manhattan as a child.
Although their sauce could have had a bit more taste to it, Slice & Ice (purposely spelled different again, since they seem to use many variations on the spelling of the name) had a pretty incredible slice of pizza.  I encourage any New Yorker to go there, close their eyes… take a bite and tell me that the pizza in Miami is so terrible compared to the slices they get up in New York.  If they say Florida pizza slices still suck, then they don’t know pizza anyways.  The cheese was delicious, the crust was firm, crisp, and tasty.  The sauce was lightly applied, but still could use a bit more flavor.
Definitely worth a try if you are in the Miami area and looking for a good slice.  Personally I would choose Slice n Ice over Casolas and Miami’s Best Pizza.  Alisha and Claudio, I gotta hand it to you, you officially proved you know pizza to me!
Slice N’ Ice gets 7 out of 8 slices.

    This and Gino's on South Beach is the closest you'll get to NY. Fortunately, I live right down the street from Slice N Ice.

    Oh yeah, they're Italian Ice is not bad either.

    Gino's is only good when they are not busy, try them on a Friday/Saturday night, and it's cardboard with some cold cheese on top. Can I ask, in your opinion, what is the best pizza delivery on South Beach? There are plenty of horrible slices to be had, but after the closing of Mario's and La Boite A Pizza, there is no consistantly delivered pizza. In other words, Master's and Gino's can be alright, but they are hit or miss. Worst Pizza, this is a job for you!

    As you can see from my previous review of Gino's, I whole-heartedly agree with you on their pizza. Actually the Gino's (same owner) in Orlando was incredible!

    There was one time I went to Gino's and got a soggy slice and thought to myself, what has happened here. Then I went back there on a weekday evening and things were back to normal.

    Hmmmm the best pizza delivery is a hard one since I never get delivery when I am down there. Let me think about this one and ask fellow Miamians.

    I always go to the Gino's on Alton and 16th and never had a problem.

    Craig, why don't you post the address/info of each of these joints. Slice n ice, even though its in my neighborhood, is hit or miss. sometimes they offer a yummy slice, othertimes its cardboard like. i'm gonna say that casolas on 17th is more consistent.

    have you tried bertoni's pizza yet? its more italian style, but i thought it was pretty good. (also in coconut grove)

    I have to agree. I tried Slice and Ice for the first time last week now that I live down the street from it and I really dig it. A 12″ with 3 garlic rolls and a soda for $10 is a pretty good deal.

    The addresses and phone numbers are listed in custom fields below the actual review. I have not been to Bertoni's but based on your recommendation I will go down there and try it.

    They're ok. Too small for me. Bite size even.

    Rumor has it, the street is being widened and the city/county bought the lot. Really depressing to lose such an awesome piece of the grove.

    Someone is trying to pass itself off as the old Slice-N-Ice. It has acquired Slice-N-Ice’s old telephone number but the pizza is horrible. Its looks/tastes like supermarket pizza. The second you see it or taste it you will know its not Joe Cappillo’s awesome NY pie.

    I looked up the records and Cappillo’s Slice-N-Ice company was called Fugheddaboutit Pizzeria LLC. Sadly, the company filed for dissolution on Aug 2012. Cappillo’s ficticious name certificate is still valid, so I dont know how these people are serving up that terrible pizza using the Slice-N-Ice name.

    Diners beware.
