I walked in on a Monday to check this place out. A number of tables are available to sit at, and they run a few lunch specials each day. You can get pizza slices, trips to the salad bar, and a drink. Depending on your choice, it's probably gonna be around five to seven bucks if you go that route.

NYC Pizzeria has four thin-crusted sizes (from the 10" small to the 18" giant) and a Sicilian-style crust. Prices usually range from $11 for a small and up to $27 for a giant. Gluten-free crusts are also available here, probably for a few bucks more.
NYC Pizzeria also sells pizza by the slice, which I'd probably call normal slices of pizza from their 18-inch "giant" size pie. Cheese runs for about $2.25, with each topping 50 cents more (up to two toppings).
While the place may be a pizzeria, I first heard about this place for its gyros ($6.75). Since I tend to go on gyro benders, that's what my first meal here was. A generous portion of sliced lamb meat inside a thick pita, with lettuce, tomato, onion, and gyro sauce (tzatziki).

In fact, I actually wonder if you can get the gyro meat on a pizza. Now that would be epic.
NYC Pizzeria has your usual Italian-inspired hot sandwiches, such as the meatball parmesan, sausage parmesan, and chicken parmesan (each $7). NYC Garlic Knots are $2.50 for six (with marinara included). Spinach pie is $3.75.
Hell, these guys do calzones and stromboli ($8.50). The stromboli has mozzarella, mustard, salami, Canadian bacon, and Italian sausage. Yes, please. Allow 20 minutes for these.
The panda ate his dessert for sure. A slice of New York cheesecake is $2.50, but I went with the cannoli. Three small ones for $3. Great job on the sweet, creamy ricotta filling, and the cold, tube-shaped shell had a lovely slight crunch.
