Get an authentic taste of Naples at this New York City pizzeria in Greenwich Village. Owner Pino “Joe” Pozzuoli came from Italy and established his namesake restaurant in 1975 with the help of his sons Andy and Dino. For the past 44 years, the owner has been offering customers the quintessential New York slice, eventually solidifying Joe’s Pizza as a “Greenwich Village institution.” According to Pozzuoli, he learned what people want to eat from decades of making pizza and observing what people are drawn to. Patrons can purchase whole pies or get pizza by the slice, and Joe’s promises that customers won’t be served any “pretentious” pies. The pizzeria is open from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. from Sunday to Thursday and 10 a.m. to 5 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
