I was just in my hometown of West Caldwell, NJ, and of course had to stop for a slice. Joe's Pizza's got nothing on Pizzerelli's!
I just finished eating Pizzarelli's Pizza for the first time tonight, and I must say that I am hooked! Talk about your fresh pizza, it doesn't get any fresher! We walk in and are eagerly waited on immediately. There is one guy in his mid thirties and a couple of teenagers. The teens were very shy yet nice, and the man was very outgoing and fun to talk to. We placed our order of two 10" pizzas with three toppings each. Our total was $15 with the $5 coupon they had! The man, I believe they said his name was Bobo, started stretching the dough and told us it'd be about 20 minutes. We walk around the strip mall, come back, pick up our pizzas and are on our way. From the first bite it was heaven. I got a Hawaiian Pizza on Sicilian crust and Shawn got Deep Dish Hamburger, Sausage and Bacon. The Deep Dish had fancy cut and curled crust that was simply beautiful to look at. Pizzarelli's Pizzeria serves New York, Chicago and Sicilian style pizzas in Ellisville at the corner of Manchester and Kiefer Creek Road. If you haven't checked them out, please do so.
As a Philadelphian, I spent three long years in St. Louis. During that time, I truly missed east coast style pizza. Eventually, I found out about Pizzarellis from some friends and was eager to try them out. I rounded up my fellow Philadelphian family members, and we were all delighted with Pizzarelli's product. It is unlike anything else in the St. Louis area.

I so love this place and it is like NY pizza. They are friendly and reasonable too. The best place to go for lunch and get 2 slices and a soda for a reasonable price. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Yummmmmm!

This is easily my favorite place for take-out pizza in St. Louis. It beats any chain hands down (unless you enjoy the cracker-think abomination called "St. Louis Style Pizza"). There's nothing fancy here, just very good fresh ingredients and extremely tasty pizza. I believe they have a thinner New York style and a thicker Sicilian style. If you're out in West County and want to try something other than Pizza Hut, Dominoes, etc, try Pizzarelli's...I don't think you'll be disappointed.

The best Pizza in town. Owner Brian Behrens is as friendly as they come. Their Chicago style is outstanding as is the old stand by New York Pizza. If you are in the area stop and say hi to Brian and enjoy a really good pizza.
I only wish I lived closer to Pizzarelli's. I think it's the best pizza in St. Louis. Big, floppy, NY style slices. Great quality.

Closest you can get to New York style pizza. I'm very picky about my pizza and compared to Saint Louis pizza, like Imo's and other similar thin, matza bread with fake cheese pizza. This pizza is wonderful especially being a New Yorker... Like many pizza places its not how the place looks inside its all about how the food taste. All i have to say is try the pizza.There are only a few good new yorker style pizza places in Saint Louis, and this is one of them.
I really enjoy this pizza place. I almost always get the thick crust. I got the thin once and it was good but I love that thick crust especially because it is not like other pizza places where it would be super greasy. They put a generous amount of toppings and cheese. Pizzarelli's is just a little place with some dine in tables, but I either get carryout or delivery and they have a pretty wide delivery area. Plus there is always a lot of coupons. This is some superior pizza.

I enjoy pizza, but I love this pizza. I've been coming here for a couple years and I usually get the Deep Dish. I have not gotten the New York style so I can not speak for it. I've gotten the thin once, was good, don't get me wrong, but that deep dish is so yummy. It is a unique deep dish and have not had a another pizza like it before. They are generous with the toppings, so give it a try. I always get coupons in the mail, so keep an eye out for them because they are extra motivation.
I used to live in NY... Brooklyn and now back home with my family in good ole' West St. Louis County! I'm fortunate to live right around the corner from this place since they are really the best NYC/ East Coast style pizza in the St. Louis area. Brian, the owner of Pizzarelli's, is great and really takes care of his customers, whether you're a regular or first timer. Great NYC style pizza at a great price!
