Hipster Pizza + Gr8 'scream

Get Italian food out of your mind, because this isn't it. Fresh, hipster pizza with great ingredients and prepared well. Wine and beer only. Staff was definitively great, cool people that went out of their way to make you feel good. Disappointing: the chips that came with the really good salsa... read more

Have been to this restaurant several times, including yesterday for lunch. Menu is interesting and inventive; good choices for apps, salads and of course, pizza selections. Service was average.. even a bit slow on the response. Requests for water, extra blue cheese and the like were slow. One entree order was botched and one of three diners got served ten... More

I was so excited to try this place based on all the rave reviews, however, was so disappointed! I went for my birthday dinner and was really expecting a great experience. My biggest complaint with this restaurant was the lack of customer service!! Someone in our group found a wire twisty tie in their salad, and while I understand that... More

My wife and I enjoyed the Winter Salad followed by the Piggy Piggy Pizza. Both were delicious. The service was spot on with good attention without any rushing you out the door. The food was delivered at a good pace. Overall it was an excellent meal. I plan to return soon.

We read several great reviews ... It was just a half mile from our hotel so off we went to Stanziatos. We (3 adults and a 4 year old) arrived a bit before 6 PM; it was busy but we were greeted & seated right away. The atmosphere was very casual, a bit noisy but not overwhelmingly so (great when...

Wow-- amazing wings, wood-fired just like the deliciously thin crusted pizza. We enjoyed figgy smalls (duck, kale, and fig reduction) and piggy piggy (bacon, carmelized onions, balsamic reduction), both "white" pizzas. Service was good, and, yes, the dining room is loud with fun music. Lots of families were present. We really enjoyed it and look forward to returning soon.

Stanziato's is very popular, so be prepared to wait. The wait is worth it, though. There is no such thing as a "typical" pizza here. Though one can get the "usual" toppings, preparation and presentation are not all all like the average pizzeria. The mozzarella, basil, tomatoes and other vegetables are not mass-produced. When possible, vegetables and cheeses come from... More

The pizza was very good, the price was fine, and the place was nice to look at. More trendy than I remember from having visited it a couple of years earlier. The food comes out pretty quick. I had a salad and the pizza with the duck on it, both of which were very good.

Fresh pizza, fresh salad. Great match-up! 6 pm on a weeknight and it was packed! All pizza is made to order. Four of us each had our own 'small' salad and pie. Salad menu makes choosing tough, and they are agreeable to altering ingredients. Pies are perfect. Crisp, thin crust, good proportion of fresh toppings. The oven makes it all... More
