When you hear the name David Portnoy, the first thing that comes to most people’s minds is the world-famous pizza reviewer. One of the places he reviewed was Fini Pizza in both Brooklyn and Amagansett. When you go to Fini Pizza in Brooklyn, you are faced with massive wait times because the score that Portnoy provided to the public was a massive 7.9, which is a very good pizza score in his world. At the Amagansett spot, he gave them an even better score, which reached into the 8s, and gave it an unbelievable 8.3 score. So, in other words, I had to try this pizza place out and see for myself what the deal was. I headed there and without even hesitating, ordered a whole regular pie.
The place is the old Astro’s, and it looks pretty much the same except all the seating is now by the windows, and there are no tables. You can go in for slices, and overall, it’s a pretty typical pizza joint with a more retro vibe. But what’s great about this pizza is that it is thin and has a crispness to it that you don’t get anywhere else in the Hamptons. This means that even if you devour half a pie, you don’t walk away feeling bloated and like death is imminent, but you just feel really full from good pizza.
Everything is fresh, and the overall vibe is trendy. You have to go. I gave it an 8.4.
