BROOKLYN – Brooklyn's Juliana's Pizza received some big-time recognition this week after it was named the best pizza place in the country by TripAdvisor.
The international travel website based its rankings on the quality and quantity of customer reviews posted from around the world, with more emphasis on posts made in the last year which, when compiled, found Juliana's to be the best.
Notable Brooklyn pizza expert Patsy Grimaldi opened the doors to Juliana's Pizza on Fulton Street in DUMBO in 2012.
Get this – it currently has 708 reviews on TripAdvisor, 477 of them dubbing the restaurant as "excellent" and four rating it as "terrible."
"This pizza is incredible," one reviewer gushed."Very authentic Italian as well as a very friendly staff."
Three other local pizzerias also made the top 10 list, including Keste Pizza in Manhattan, Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana in New Haven, Connecticut and John's Pizzeria, also in Manhattan.
New York City's Keste and John's Pizzeria, both on Bleeker Street in Greenwich Village were listed No. 4 and No 10 in the country respectively on the website's list.
