    Best new pizza spot in Brooklyn. Order the Colony and Emily and whatever special is on. The burger on a pretzel roll is also the best in town right now.

    This cozy Clinton Hill restaurant excels at both straightforward and unusual wood-fired pizzas. The menu also includes a burger that some meat connoisseurs consider to be among the best in the city. Read more

    Sit at the bar, get great service and honest opinions about wine and beer on the menu (ask for a taste if unsure). The Colony Pizza is a favorite, while the chicken wings are a very messy, must have.

    Wow wow wow the special 🍕- butternut squash purée, kale, goat cheese, and guanciale - was top three best pizzas I've ever had in my life. I could eat it probably once a month for the rest of time.

    You must try the 1) vodka pizza with vodka sauce, ham, & mozzarella 2) emmy burger on a pretzel bun and the most magical of them all the 3) zucca pasta with duck ragu. Wonderful food and experience!

    The Emily burger is the stupidest, most delicious burger within AT LEAST a mile radius. Get there early because they often run out.

    This is my favorite pizza in NYC. Get the Emily pizza (pistachio, truffle, honey); I'm usually not one for gourmet pizza but it's amazing!

    Still prefer the Detroit style pizza from the WV or WBurg locations but the Colony is always a go to! The burger is my favourite in NYC - juicy, a bit crunchy and delicious paired with a perfect bun.

    The Emmy Burger is worth the hype and everything you dream of. GET IT. The pizza for some reason was a little soggy, but have heard others say different so maybe just got a random bad pie.

    Top drawer pizza with some great toppings that are always cooked perfectly. The "Emmy Burger" is a hidden gem and a must try if is available so be sure to ask. You can thank me later...

    Order a red & white to start. We went with a Colony (spicy/sweet!) and the special White of the day (fontina, mushrooms, etc). Both delicious! I'm heading back soon for the vodka and tomatillo pies!

    Love this place! Order a pizza and an app or pasta for 2 ppl, two+ pizzas for any party larger than that. The Colonie with pepperoni, pickled chilis & honey is A++, as is the bucatini and the cheeses!

    New fave. Had us in and out in 30mins, but super cozy at the same time. Pizza is incredible (thin crust, great toppings) - try the 'colony.' Burger is overhyped IMO (too creamy), so go with pizza!

    Lives up to the hype. Arestein pizza was phenomenal, flavours of lasagne on a pizza! Sweet peppers that burst in your mouth. The burger was fantastic, the pretzel bun makes it. Even the wings a good

    One of Bk's favorite sit down pizza places. The burger is indulgent as anything (love Emmy sauce!). I'd recommend trying something more saucey....Colony is a lil overhyped

    Emily pizza and Arn-Dog Jr were ri-friggin-diculous. Insane in the membrane. Brussel sprouts were also on point. Haven't had the burger but you can't go wrong.

    The Emmy Burger uses dry aged beef on a pretzel bun, topped with otherworldly "Emmy sauce," charred onion, Grafton cheddar, and cornichons. Get to Clinton Hill and eat this now. Read more

    You should get the Emily pie (white pie with honey) - complement it with a Rafa (peppers, onions, tomato sauce).

    I'm no vegetarian but had a veg feast to die for: the crispy (and spicy w/ a little sweet) sprouts, the kale pesto spaghetti, and a Lady Pizza Girl, the tastiest mushroom white pizza I've ever had.

    Best place for pizza lovers. Once i visited the place with my friend and it was amazing time we spent to together. Quality of pizza is yummy and too tasty. Quantity is also huge. Value for money!

    Get here early (before 6:30) for the infamous Emmy burger. They only sell 25 a night. Don't let it overshadow the pizzas, though. The Emily, the colony, and the vodka pie are great choices.

    Everything is sooo yummy. With the coziest vibe and friendliest owners this new spot is a gem. You MUST get the Emily pizza and sprouts of course. Their homemade mozzarella is out of this world!

    This is the best burger we have ever had; primarily due to the wonderful pretzel bun, onion, and the sauce that they put on top of the burger. Fries were well done; they were good!

    The wet, cheese/onion adorned burger is everything you’ve heard, although $27 is a bit extreme. Pizza is quite good although sadly no square pies here. Meats spicy wings and charred sprouts also tops.

    Get any pizza here. Simply amazing. Very tasty. Try a few if you're, hungry you can't go wrong. Skip the cocktails though...

    It was love at first slice, and then some, finished the whole pie. I would get the Colony (mozzarella, pepperoni, pickled chili, honey). Those two last ingredients make for a tantalizing mix.

    Although the pizza is solid, the can't-miss dish here is the Emmy Burger, a dry aged beef patty topped with cheddar, charred onions, and Emmy sauce sandwiched between two pretzel buns.

    Best pizza in my life. Burrata pie is divine and white pie options are savory. Ask waiter for tips on add ons and trust them. Wine list is priced moderately, plus plus.

    What's better than a super cheesy, tomato-filled calzone? One that's stuffed with chocolate and melted marshmallows, of course. You can't do much better than the enormous one served at Emily Read more

    Flavors are big. The burger is tarted up with a bevy of reckless condiments, but could (and does) easily standalone as one of the best in town based on the quality of meat. Def get.

    First time here? Try the Emily pizza for a perfect mix of savory with a bit of sweetness. One pizza + one appetizer is the perfect portion for two people to share.

    Pizza does love Emily! And so do I. Definitely my favorite pizza in the area, and my go-to for a nice night out. I recommend the Luca, the Baby Q, and the Lady Pizza Girl, but there's no bad choice.

    Loved the Pizza and the Gin Tonic. Love how the Pizzas are stacked on the table. Even though food-wise I would go back to Emily's anytime unfortunately the music was soo loud we couldn't talk at all.

    I said I wouldn’t get the burger because it’s $27 which is stupid. But I got the burger and it’s kinda worth it. You’re gonna spend that money anyway, right?

    The Colony & Emily pizzas are awesome. Vodka pizza is only ok and the burrata pizza is a definite pass (there's hardly any burrata on it). Burger is great too.

    The pizza toppings were creative and the pizza delicious. I especially loved the Quinn. I would also recommend their second restaurant Emmy Squares, which is even better!

    The perfect place to eat a meal alone: grab a seat at the bar, bring a book, order a glass of Malbec, the arugula salad, and the Lady Pizza Girl and you have a perfect night.

    Lady Pizza Girl is 👍. Unfortunately, had a party of 7 for my bday and did not receive the nicest treatment from the dream team, Emily and Matthew. Waitstaff was great.
