What more is there to say? Go already. Sure there will be a line but go have some delicious wine at the packed bar. Packed in a good way of course! It's like dropping in at a friend's open house where there's good conversation, a TV playing up in the corner of the bar, people coming and going and best... More

Heard about Stanziato's from Holbrook Farm, who supplies the local, organic greens that show up here. Yes; it IS the best wood-fired pizza in the universe… Absolutely, positively, no argument. HOWEVER…! If you want to actually have a conversation with your table mates, get dinner to go. There's nothing to absorb the sound; everything bounces off the hard walls and... More

ATMOSPHERE From the outside it looks like an average pizza place that I assumed had plastic chairs, a wall of ovens, Formica counter, and some guy in a t-shirt that would brusquely inquire how many slices I wanted. But due to a friend’s suggestion, we gave it a try. So glad we did! Although I will admit that my assumption... More

They Do source most of their ingredients locally and the... More

A chef I know told me to try this place and he was right, they have amazing ingredients and the flavor profiles of their pizzas are wonderful. However, as a whole it really just didn't work for me. For one, the dough is very chewy and doesn't have the crisp bottom that I enjoy from a good pizza. Granted, I... More

This is one of our favorite eatery in Danbury area for a while. Very first time, we felt that service is very coarse and inattentive. Yet, we like the food and visited several times. This summer, we went for a lunch. The pizza came out in less than 2 minutes even before the salad. We were somewhat dumbfounded. We concluded... More

The service was very good and accommodating since we had 14 people. The pizza is only once size 12" and although I had no problem with mine, several of the others were not happy. The salads are huge and very good and that is all we had for me to write about.

Came for dinner and drinks with family of 6. Seated promptly. Only beer and wine avail, tried to order a hard liquor spirit for my 95 yo mother. Prices extremely expensive for very small portions. Pizzas were ok. Our bill 175, which I thought outrageous, since very little liquor ordered , one beer and one glass of wine. Disappointing
