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

Best pizza and salads around :D love the winter salad and the arguela and quinoa salad minus the procuito because I don't eat meat. I would recommend this place over any New York pizzeria hands down! Even people who hate ppl fall inlove with this pizza. The reg cheese and the shroom pizza are to die for. Limited menu but... More

This pizza is the closest you can get to the original from Napoli. They use flower from Italy and all fresh ingredients from local farmers. Great selection of beer also helps Eggplant, piggy piggy and margherita all excellent. A bit pricey but you have to pay for good things

This pizza is so freakin' good! Why? Fresh, local ingredient cooked in a wood fired oven. Sure, it's more expensive than Domino's or Pizza Hut, but it isn't fair to make that comparison because it is so superior.
