Nothing makes me happier than when a place lives up to the hype. Paulie Gee's is easily one of my favorite Brooklyn pizza places, if not in all of NYC. There's no sign outside, so make sure you peak your head beyond the wooden storefront to make sure you're in the right place. Then get ready for some all-star pies. Paulie Gee's is small, but certainly big enough to seat parties of 6+. The wait staff are friendly and more than willing to take you through the staggering selection of pizzas. (The wine and beer variety is also impressive, might I add.) The pizzas are all personal-sized and beyond plenty for a hungry patron. This round - as I'll sure there'll be more - we went with the Hellboy and the Ricky Ricotta. Oh boy these were divine. The Hellboy is what Paulie Gee's is famous for: fresh mozzarella, sopressata, parmigiano, and wait for it, Mike's HOT honey. Every slice is spicy, but never overwhelming, and the sweetness of the honey blends so well with the saltier sopressata and gooey mozzarella. The Ricky Ricotta, meanwhile, is probably the most refreshing (I mean that) sausage slice I've ever had. The sweet fennel sausage, dollops of cool ricotta, drizzled olive oil, and arugula made a pizza that was rich, but never heavy. (How do they do that?) Paulie Gee's cooks their pies in a coal fire oven, Two very different pizzas, both very good choices. The pies are a little expensive (around $17), but the prices do include tax. Aaaaand that's my only critique. For a unique take on a New York staple, Neapolitan-style pizza, this place cannot be beat.

From the moment you walk in the vibe is outstanding. It has a rustic charm that fits the style of pizza being delivered. We had the Hell Boy and the crust was cooked to perfection. The ingredients were well balanced and packed maximum favor in each bite. There is typically a wait here that at times can be rather long. It's well worth it!

Paulie Gee's is a solid option for good pizza in Brooklyn, but I think there are better options. It didn't compare to Roberta's in Bushwick or Marta in Manhattan, but was still pretty good pizza right out of the oven. The topping choice is daunting and actually a bit overwhelming. I like choice, but it took me 10 minutes just to read the whole menu, not helped by the super dark lighting inside. The meat is top quality and anything with the local hot honey is good, especially the Hell Boy, pepperoni with hot honey drizzled on, but it just didn't come together as well as expected. The honey also got a little cloying after a few slices. The Ricky Ricotta was similarly good for a slice or two, but after that the sheer power of the ricotta became a little overwhelming. The crust was amazing though. Service was good, but nothing special. The wait time is ofter over an hour and apparently there is already a line at 6:00 when they open. We ended up grabbing an open stand up table by the bar and found out we could order there which saved a 45 minute wait. However, it took between 30-40 minutes for the pizza to come out, and it was clearly forgotten until the hostess checked in. Paulie Gee himself also stopped by and chatted which was a nice touch, but didn't really add much to the experience. Service was friendly but didn't go out of the way. The beer menu was small but pretty good as well, key for a pizza place.

Incredible Neopolitan pizza with a perfectly blistered crust. I got the garlic/spinach pie. Menu pizzas are perfectly composed...the idea is to keep the pies as-is, not to order a la carte toppings. Nice wine selection, beef selection. Yummy limoncello spritzers. Nice Greenpoint location, with the trip. Prepare for a wait, the place is tiny. Dive bar feeling (dark, medium to loud clientele..."buzzing"...not quiet, but a good date spot). Save your pizza crust and ask for the cold butter, very nice way to enjoy the crusts.

One of the best pizza's in town. They use a original brick oven which you can see in the back to cook up all there pizzas. The menu has a list of great creative pizzas with wonderful toppings. We went for the sausage, ricotta, arugula pizza and the flavors came out great. Pizza was soft and crispy with the ricotta standing out. We also had a pineapple speck pizza. This fell a little flat as the speck wasn't as fatty or melted as much on the pizza. It also came out a bit tough. The pineapple stood out well but the sauce was too sparing. Pizza dough though was the standout. Also had some great beer there as the greenpoint milk and honey was refreshing. The place is kind of hidden as you won't see signage but large almost like barn doors into the restaurant. Service was a bit lacking as once they opened it was a bum rush to the door with no orderly entrance for who was waiting outside first. Also once inside it took quite a long time for our orders to be taken and we were skipped given utensils or plates.

Like fornino in my opinion. But here you can get great vegan pizza! Okay often you have to wait but even an hour is worth it. They carry on with a wood old-fashioned style in there. It's comfy. Staff is helpful. But sometimes "Old Pauly" likes to come around and talk to his guests in a little drunk way..
