What a pleasant surprise! I was staying down the street and looked up a few restaurants and this one caught my eye! But how can you make pizza original these days? My kids have been eating it their whole lives as a food favorite…. I've been to Italy….etc…..but Yes, this IS different and the house specialty that evening was so... More

The pizza is good, not excellent, not perfect, but some of the best in the area. If it weren't for their drinks I would give it 5 stars. For a family of 4, we each ordered an iced tea for our drink at $2.50 each. We were asked of we would like more iced teas and said yes not realizing... More

After enjoying two very fresh, delicious salads we were looking forward to our pizza. It was quite a wait and when it finally arrived it was lukewarm and doughy. Not at all crispy. It had no other redeeming qualities either. Almost no sauce or cheese and some bland eggplant topped with way too many basil leaves. A poor excuse for... More

Excellent thin crust pizza with superb toppings. The garlic mussels were a standout as was the spicy squid salad. Some of the best pizza in Connecticut. Meg was our server and was professional and delightful. It was also very nice to have a server say" my pleasure" instead of " no problem" which to me always implies a slight annoyance.... More

I find it hard to review Italian food being Italian myself, born and raised in the tri-state area. The Summer Squid salad was delicious. Perfect mix of Calamari, Avacado and corn and seasonings. I always get the Diablo pizza, lots of gahhhlic like the menu says...and shrimp. Will be back!!

I have been wanting to visit Stanziato's for some time now and boy do I regret I didn't get there earlier. If you love good, fresh food combined with a chef who knows how to experiment with unusual combinations, this is the place for you. The kale, beet salad, with hazelnuts and blue cheese-outstanding! We also ordered the Toots Magoots-delish... More

Wonderful pizza, salad, and beer selection. We also had a great server and enjoyed the atmosphere! Plenty of choices for vegetarian as well.

Ben was one of the most knowledgeable waiters I have ever encountered. His enthusiasm and energy he brings is exactly in tune with the atmosphere of this restaurant. The food is great! I recommend the Beautiful Day Pizza. If you get Ben as a waiter, you are guaranteed great service. Afterwards, go to the bar in the other room. Craft... More

I was expecting something outstanding, but to be honest, it was just a rather average pizza - though it was wood oven baked which gave it a boost.

Go here and you will never think of pizza in the same way again. Most places, pizza is a great comfort food. Here it is a gourmet delight. Try the margarita pizza with basil grown on the premises ( in season -it is Connecticut after all). They also have a nice selection of wines. The atmosphere is nice and the... More
