Good, competent italian food.

I have eaten here on several occasions throughout the years, and it is always pretty good. This time, I ordered a small Pepperoni pizza, which was made to order and delivered to the table extremely quickly. It stood up to gravity (no one likes a drippy pizza), and it was flavorful. It was a pity... read more

Bridgeport can be an uneven town to visit, to say the least, but this local spot is in a safe enough area just over the line from Fairfield. This is a family place with a beer and wine menu. The salads are OK. There are a limited number of dishes, but the Brick Oven Pizza is the main attraction. The... More

I LOVE Brick Oven's pizza! I like the thinness of the crust, it is not extra greasy nor is the amount of mozzarella cheese overwhelming. It's just right. I have not tried any of their other foods besides their salads but I thoroughly enjoy their pizza.

Stopped in for some quick take-out and made a decision to come back for a meal. The take-out was delicious - "fried zucchini, salad & pasta with a marinara sauce." After tasting that, planned to go back almost immediately and when I did, I was not disappointed! The staff was welcoming and helpful and the food was most deliciously satisfying!

Went this past Saturday, and it was very busy but very disorganized. The waitress said they were new and believe me they all had no clue. Where was the usual staff? It was definitely an "off night". It took way too long to get the food, no silverware, and lots of attitude! This place is ususally "on point" with both... More

Been going there for years, and Im never disappointed. Although I just heard the place was recently sold again, I like the fact that I see some of the same faces (waitresses). The italian waitress is Always polite and attentive. Food is just as good as before. Its nothing fancy but tastes just right! Highly recommend stopping for some BrickOVEN!

Whether you eat in or take out, this is a restaurant to be avoided. The staff is grumpy, slow, and they leave dirty plates piled on your table way too long. The pizza used ot be absolutely the best within 30 miles and now, since the new ownership, they have managed to make brick oven pizza taste like microwave frozen... More
