New York New York Pizza

If you lose your friend at the bar, chances are they’re probably at New York New York Pizza. With multiple locations over Tampa Bay, you’ll never miss an opportunity to get a classic New York thin crust pizza. We have to admit, a night out in SOHO or Ybor City always ends here and it’s definitely the icing on the cake for a late night slice. A simple yet go-to order for us is their pepperoni pizza! Many will say New York New York Pizza is the best pizza place for late night after hitting up a few bars!

Each Location Varies

📍 Multiple Locations in Tampa

Pizzeria Gregario

Over in Safety Harbor is one of the best pizzerias that’ll take you back to that one time at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Italy. Pizzeria Gregario is one of the few pizzerias around the country using 100% stone milled grains or milling fresh grains in-house. Their pizzas are absolutely delicious and made with high quality ingredients. The vibe is super laid back and very welcoming. We recommend The SJ (Tomato sauce, basil, mozzarella, prosciutto sausage, arugula & Romano), it’s a divine pie!

Thursday – Friday | 3PM-6PM (Direct Sales Only)

Saturday – Wednesday | CLOSED

📍400 2nd St N, Safety Harbor, FL 34695


With three locations, you really have no excuse! Head to Ava in SOHO, Armature Works, or the Joinery for some of the best pizza. They have a great happy hour and lunch specials, and their pizza is definitely crave-worthy. The atmosphere at all locations is super trendy, plus their pizzas have maximum flavors that truly bring you back to life! We recommend their pizza with arugula and prosciutto, it’s fresh with the perfect topping-to-pizza ratio.

Forbici is a great place for friends and family to come together to share a pizza and good conversations in a trendy Tampa restaurant. Beyond the pizza, we also love the lively energy here! Their Roman-style pizza starts with handcrafted dough, house-made mozzarella and fresh toppings. You can have it cut teglia (square) and tonda (round). We recommend trying the square Cup and Char pizza for delicious and crispy pepperoni.

Bella's Italian Cafe

Bella’s is a staple Italian restaurant serving Tampa Bay wonderful dishes for over 30 years! Their pizza is outstanding along with their entire menu, filled with traditional Italian dishes we all love! Their pizza dough is made with beer from an original Venetian recipe. They also brush the dough with olive oil before baking, which gives the crust an extra light and crispy texture that we all admire. In addition to incredible pizza, their wine list is pretty impressive and you shouldn’t sleep on the chocolate lava cake for dessert!

Eddie & Sam’s is the pizza place you go to if you’re craving New York thin-crust pizza by the pie or slice. Their triangle slices are big, greasy and foldable! True New-Yorkers can admit that Tampa is lucky to have some of the best New York pizza without having to go to the Big Apple itself. The dedication is real, as they import the water from New York to bring Tampa the New York pizza we love. The gelato is amazing, so be sure to save some room for it post-pizza!

With a few locations in the Tampa Bay area, Bavaro’s is a traditional Neapolitan Pizzeria built on family and passion. The pizza is made in a beautiful wood fired pizza oven, it puts us in awe to watch! The ambiance at each location is incredibly cute and trendy. We recommend the Funghi pizza (san marzano tomato, fior de latte, garlic, mushroom, parmigiano reggiano, basil, extra-virgin olive oil). If you love sweets like we do, definitely save room for their Nutella pizza!
