    Plenty of exposed brick, reclaimed wood, and soft lighting. Menu includes salads, crostini, charcuterie, and 10 pizzas. The Aggelatos Bros. are making all the mozzarella for their pizzas in house.

    Damn you, Van Dammer and your beautiful brussel sprouts! Throw some soppressata on it, but not without also filling up on the burrata, octopus, and roasted vegetable appetizers first! So happy.

    Very good meatball (only comes with 3 balls), meat platter was great to share and burrata, van dun was ok not the greatest tho. The best one wad the queen and the stun dun that one was far the best.

    As advertised! Personal pizzas so you can get different ones and share. Burrata was nice but different from pics. Stun Dun was my favorite great combination of flavors. Quality ingredients make a dif.

    Quite possibly the best pizza in Queens. The focus on high quality handmade and locally-sourced ingredients (some as local as the rooftop farm down the street!) really creates an exquisite experience!

    Definitely not to be missed, the pasta and pizza are great and the service is awesome. The hostess gave us free beer since the wait was longer than she thought.

    Try the Arugula pizza, with mushrooms added to the mix if that's something you'd be into. It's stellar. They also consistently have a delicious seasonal salad. Perfect starter.

    Favorite fancy pizza spot in Astoria. Their Hawaiian pizza has paper thin sliced pineapple and hints of jalapeño. The spicy sopressata is also worth getting too.

    A good date spot and easily one of the best (if not the best) pizza places in Astoria. Had the superfly snuka (pineapple and speck make a great combo) and pomodoro (really enjoyed the no cheese)

    excellent wood-fired pizzas and seasonal small plates / salads. if it's on the menu, get the calzone. it's delicious and the accompanying sauce is perfect.

    Having eaten here regularly since the very first weekend they were in business, I don't say this lightly - the Cherrystone Clam pizza is the finest one they've ever had on the menu. Just perfect.

    The meatball appetizer is amazing, as is the octopus (super tender) and the string bean salad (bright and citrusy). Service is always above and beyond and they have excellent recommendations.

    Delicious neapolitan-style pizza (the Stunn Dunn is a standout; more like the Stunn YUM), tasty apps, appealing atmosphere. Great addition to a charming stretch of 31st Ave in Astoria.

    Van Dammer and WuTang Clam are the best pizzas you'll find anywhere in NYC! The appetizers are also amazing. Staff and owner are all helpful and friendly, 10/10 restaurant imo

    The wood-fired pizzas come with toppings such as oyster and shiitake mushrooms, spicy soppressata, red chili flakes and honey and Brussels sprouts, egg and truffle oil. Read more

    The Van Damme (Brussel Sprouts, egg, truffle oil pizza) is absolute perfection. Super fresh ingredients, and crust bears resemblance to naan- that's a plus in my book.

    Cozy. Unpretentious. And the brussel sprout pizza was nothing short of amazing. The meat and cheese combo is worth a try as well. A phenomenal addition to a growing neighborhood.

    Wood-fired pizza somewhere between New York- and Neapolitan-style, topped with excellent mozzarella made in-house in a warm, friendly space.

    Great pizza and space but bear in mind Milkflower is run by hipsters so it opens late and closes early. Plan accordingly; even call ahead to make sure they are open.

    The pizzas are great, but don’t sleep on the pastas. And get the ricotta as a dessert.

    Only beer, no wine or liquor. The wood fired pizzas are sized for one. Sauce was delicious, pizza is not overly cheesy. The grilled shishito peppers are amazing.

    They have a nice wine selection now, in addition to the beer. Pizza is incredible, but get the burrata and/or the meatballs to start. Yuuuumm!

    Pizza is awesome...(avoid the "parmesan" cheese on top...is not real Parmigiano reggiano cheese autentico, if you're a purist will ruin your pizza)

    The pizza was so delicious and with so many flavor could choose that we even visited the pizza shop twice in the same day!

    You cannot go wrong here. It's premium farm to table w/ slightly higher prices for the area because of said quality. I haven't left here without an ear to ear satisfied grin on my face, ever.
