Basile’s Pizza – pretty darn close to NYC in Hoboken
For one thing – I found out that Basile’s Pizza is pronounced “Basilzz” not “Baseels,” and that they make an amazing slice of pizza. The well over 100 reader emails and texts I’ve received raving about them definitely says something!
Prominent location (89 Washington St.), super fast pie turnover (almost every pie is always fresh out of the oven), and good crispy NYC-style consistency. Gotta love almost everything about it.
They also took over the old El Barrio Burrito place next door – quite possible the fastest expansion of a Hoboken business on record.
Last I checked, they still don’t deliver – but it’s worth the walk from wherever you are in Hoboken. Best to eat the slices right away, rather than schlepping them home, as you’ll be battling the “sog-factor.”
A+ rating for Basile’s Pizza in Hoboken!
Basile’s Pizza – OK with it, or “too much pizza!?”
A reader recently commented about the name of the new pizza place coming to 89 Washington St. (Basile’s Pizza – not sure if spelling is correct). He thought Hoboken may be suffering from pizza overload. What do you think?
“In the market saturated by pizza establishments, what makes a new business owner say, “I have a great idea. Let’s open a pizza place in Hoboken?”
I’m not sure why someone thinks they have a good idea by opening a pizza place in this town. There are already so many great landmark and also some very bad pizza places. What makes these people think that they’re pizza place it going to make it? Guaranteed they will have every type of pizza topping and nothing else but fried appetizers (if that). What is going to make this new pizza place differentiate itself from any other??? If you’re going to open an eating establishment in this town, BE CREATIVE. WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE PIZZA PLACES!!! Somebody please adopt the Bin 14 concept and open a successful place that people want to eat at. The only saving grace for this new pizza joint is that it’s near Carlo’s so it will have the tourist crowd that doesn’t know any better…”

Man, Hoboken shouldn’t be called the “Birthplace of Baseball” anymore – a better name would be “The when it rains it pours city.”
Not that I’m complaining – Pizza is the best food on earth. However, if this place is remotely good – I’d reckon that Imposto’s a block away might have something to worry about. Although at 4am – drunk, out of town idiots don’t give a hoot whether it’s tasty or not.
