    I don’t think Shore Slice gets enough love. People from outside the state love this place as much as the locals.
    Aliya from Ohio said, “All the way from Ohio, we HAD to try Shore Slice. Joe, the owner, was so kind to us, made sure we had everything we needed and took such good care of us. The food was AMAZING. Some of the best pizza, garlic knots, fries and cheese curds I’ve ever had. We can’t wait to come back!”

  • Capricci Pizzeria & Restaurant - Friendship Mall, 512 New Friendship Rd, Howell Township, NJ 07731

    Not one of the super well known places, but after searching comments on shore message boards and food pages, I’m convinced they should be on this list. Jennifer M. claims the Pizza Ala Norma is the best thing she’s eaten this Summer.

    I saw a review from a woman from Brooklyn who said, “I’ve been looking for a a pizza similar in look and taste to L&B Spumoni Garden’s “Flip Flop” pie and this place was similar.” I think that could seal the deal for me.

    Another Warrior approved place and the locals love it too,

    Kim I. said, “Ordered 4 XL pies last night for a group of family members taking pictures on the beach. All 15 people loved the pizza and my teenage son was having second helpings, cold, out of refrigerator at 2am. He can’t decide now if it’s better hot or cold so we will have to go back for more testing. The owners and staff were working hard and very personable.”
