This atmospheric, neighborhood slice joint is better than it needs to be, fashioning a crisp-pliant crust and a well-seasoned sauce. (Although the Grandma pie's crust is slightly too brittle.) For best results, try to grab what's freshest, or order your own pie, specifying the fresh mozzarella. The old-school garlic knots might be what you want at 2 a.m.
