IMO Favilla's is the only authentic NY Pizza in Asheville. This is a neighborhood hole in the wall type place, no tables/chairs, slices available. Try their salads, also. Salad dressings to die for. Several pizza places in Avl call themselves NY Pizza, and at least 1 of these is owned by a New Yorker--yes, I've had this pizza--Merrimon Rd, recently expanded. IMO Favilla's has no competition. Also, Andrew, a New Yorker & the owner-cook @Favilla's, is a hoot. For what it is worth, I'm a NY/NJ "girl" raised in a working class NJ Italian neighborhood.
