Little Vincent's Pizza
324 Smithtown Blvd. Lake Ronkonkoma, NY 631-467-9633
Unlike the smaller Huntington location, this lakeside outpost of the Little Vincent's restaurant family does offer a menu of pastas and Italian dishes (although no garlic knots!)--but just as the store on New York Avenue provides, the hours here are almost unheard of (until 2 a.m. weekdays, 4 a.m. weekends), making this a nightclub hopper's requisite stop. Furthermore, the opinion around the Island is fairly frequent that the pizza found here is among the best to be found anywhere, including New York City.
"They have the best, best crunchy thin slices. They're crunchy on the bottom and cheesy on the top, just the perfect slice. Mangia, mangia!!!" says Jessica of Ronkonkoma. "It just has an out of the ordinary, amazing taste. It doesn't taste like any other pizza on LI. It's the best. I live far away from there but I still ride there just for that amazing taste of pizza," says Nick of Williston Park. "I have been easting at Little Vincent's since I was a teenager and I've enjoyed every slice I've ever eaten there. It has become a sense of pride when showing off 'good NY Pizza' to out-of-towners. And, as if that isn't enough, Little Vincent's stays open later than any other pizza establishment, still serving fresh pies until 4 a.m. on the weekends," says Rachel of Commack. "I moved here five years ago. After much searching, Little Vincent's is the only place I have found where I can eat more than two slice and not wonder, 'Why did I order this?'' says Joe of Middle Island.
