The pizza is great and unless you get there before 5:30, you might have to wait for a table. The place is small so it is loud when it is full. It is hard to talk and hear at your table. But the pizza is worth it and the ingredients are local. The pizzas are different from your average pizza.

I can't believe I'm writing this about one of our family's favorites. I previously posted a review about a year and a half ago, raving about Stanziato's. I'll preface this with telling you we've been here probably another 20 times since then and had excellent experiences each time. I'm sorry I can't recall any names of waitresses, but they've all...

Stanziato's has great pizza, salad and beer selection! We've been going there for years and have never been disappointed. The place is relatively small and you may need to wait for a table depending on the time of day....but it's worth the wait.

What a pleasant surprise! I was staying down the street and looked up a few restaurants and this one caught my eye! But how can you make pizza original these days? My kids have been eating it their whole lives as a food favorite…. I've been to Italy….etc…..but Yes, this IS different and the house specialty that evening was so... More

The pizza is good, not excellent, not perfect, but some of the best in the area. If it weren't for their drinks I would give it 5 stars. For a family of 4, we each ordered an iced tea for our drink at $2.50 each. We were asked of we would like more iced teas and said yes not realizing... More

After enjoying two very fresh, delicious salads we were looking forward to our pizza. It was quite a wait and when it finally arrived it was lukewarm and doughy. Not at all crispy. It had no other redeeming qualities either. Almost no sauce or cheese and some bland eggplant topped with way too many basil leaves. A poor excuse for... More

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
