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

If you are thinking of getting a regular pizza with the kids, forget it. This place is Pizza extraordinaire. But that does not mean don't come here with the kids, it is just really much more than an ordinary pizza place. The ingredients (cheese, sauces etc.) are all made on the premises and pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven.... More

I went for lunch with colleagues and it was tasty. Healthy salad and the ginger soup was good except it needed more seasonings. We looked around and the pizzas looked delicious.

Most of the time, the owner is present and very much a leader, not just a manager. Although not in business for more than a few years, the food and service have drawn many regular customers, including us. The most recent addition is taking over the space next door to start a microbrewery, nicely done. The varieties of pizza include... More

Not only does Stanziato's have excellent pizza and salad, but their tomato sauce was surprisingly better than I expected. I don't know why I was surprised since everything else is so good, but their sauce was amazing.

Ate here twice during a recent business trip. Both meals were great! I ordered a different pizza each time, and both were great. The pizza itself (with the exception of the crust) was pretty close to what they serve in Naples, which, in my opinion, has the best pizza in the world. I also enjoyed a couple of exceptional salads... More
