Feel more hopeful about their pizza than Razzie's, but open-minded about which is actually better, with better ingredients.

Razzie's Pizza is great.  You should try it.  Razzie's is real pizza, not gourmet.  This place sounds too fancy to me.  I wouldn't want artichoke on my pizza

I love this place - always stop by whenever I'm near one of their other locations.  The artichoke slice is a big delicious mess.  Can't wait til they open up.

This is really old news - Eater confirmed it in December and the rumors started end of last summer.

I just checked the menu.  A slice costs over $4.  That is totally ridiculous and the price of the pies is also ridiculous.  For sure I'm not going there.  Razzie's slice costs $2.50. That's what a slice should cost

I really like Rose and Joe's pizza, myself, and have occasionally enjoyed slices from Rosario's, also. I know Artichoke Basille would be bringing in a different kind of pizza, and maybe Razzie's does too.


Will have to find out if the quality of ingredients and preparation at Razzie's is good. If so, $2.50 a slice is a good deal. If Artichoke Basille is offering an interesting variety and high quality of pizza slices, I may be happy to have it as another neighborhood option. Don't fence me in (to only mid-20th-century old school pizza)!

I have had the artichoke pizza from their place on 14th st - it is really good.  I was initially skeptical of the idea of artichoke on pizza, but my friends made me eat their pizza and my life changed.  It is really full of cheese compared to a traditional pizza.   One slice is enough for a meal - i would normally have 2 slices of a traditional pizza.  Artichoke pizza is probably my favorite nontraditional pizza in nyc.

I passed by there 2 times this weekend and it wasn't crowded at all.  I guess the excitement wore off or people don't think the pizza is so great

It was lunchtime on Saturday and Sunday. That's when it should be very crowded

When it first opened there were so many people there that some people said they had to wait 40 minutes for a slice. Now I guess people don't have to wait because the excitement has worn off and it's not crowded anymore

Or people weren't sitting in a pizza place during the middle of a beautiful day. Or Greek Easter.

Does anyone know what's going on with Artichoke Basile?  I noticed the gates have been 1/2 way closed the past few days.  No signage or anything.
