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.

This was our second time to Stanziato's and we have been thrilled by the excellent pizza each time. The pizzas are personal in size and the crust is light and crisp. Our favorite is the piggy piggy!! The place is very popular so be prepared to wait, particularly on a Friday or Saturday night. There is a bar to the... More

Having traveled extensively in Italy, where wood fired pizza are ubiquitous, I've developed high standards. Stanziato's does a very good job, delivering a quality product that tastes fresh and light. I found some of the topping combinations to be a little contrived, but they're very flexible and will make you pretty much whatever you want, so this is a minor... More

Every review for this spot cites the wonderful pizza (which it is) so I came here just to tell my fellow hopheads that they also have the best rotating beer selection around. The lovely bartenders are more than willing to give you a sample of any beer on tap, and everyone is sure to find one that suits them. Have... More

I must say that Stanziato's is one of my favorite restaurants!! The food is fresh, delicious and made with only the best ingredients. A few of my favorite pizzas here are the Cauliflower, Piggy Piggy and the Beautiful Gift. The Creamy Mozzarella Burrata and their guacamole are to die for and I am absolutely addicted to the kale/beet salad &... More

This place rocks! Great food, great people! Place isn't cheap but you get fresh food and it's great. Don't bother listening to the 1 bad review they have no taste buds. Pizza is great, any of them, the buffala platter is crazy good, the Caesar salad is awesome, the garlic bread I could eat loaves of it. Try it and... More
