Busy Friday night

Very busy place, all parking spaces taken. Very excellant pizza. Decided on take out, husband in car, double parked, a party left and he got the spot. Waited in bar for table, our preordered pizza was ready so we were served right away, added another pizza and a terrific "winter"salad.

By far the best pizza ever! Period. We always get the daily specials, the chef has a way of putting flavors together that you think sound strange and don't work but they always work! Be bold, dig in! (But you have to eat it there! To go pizza is never as good)

It was a Saturday night and my husband and I wanted to try a new restaurant. We went to Stanziatos and were surprised that there were no tables available. We learned our lesson. . .you better have a reservation. We ate at the bar and had a lovely experience. The bar was small but attractively decorated. The bartender was friendly... More

Fantastic wood fired pizza. Fresh ingredients. Small restaurant. I think they only have one size pizza but it's very good. They also have other menus items.

First time we went to Stanziato's they didn't bring our wings out before the pizza like we requested, not really a big deal, but the boss came over & apologized & the wings were on the house. Not necessary, but really appreciated. Food was great, service was great, & we've been back many times since then, even for take out.... More

It is a very nice place, expensive but worth it. The Piggy Piggy pizza was super yummy. The winter salad is my favorite and a great reason to go just for that. Dessert was to die for - bread pudding and nutella cream puffs. only negative is the music is too loud for the small space

Stanziato's is know for their brick fired pizzas made from locally sourced fresh ingredients. They offer a small menu of dinner options, salads, and soups. They also have a bar area with many craft beers on tap and a full array of mixed drinks and wine. The place is very popular and can get quite crowded. They offer Pizza takeout.

I like that they use fresh local ingredients. I'm not sure why all restaurants don't....anyway, I've been here a few times now and the pizza is very good, but is different every time. I always get the piggy piggy (Bacon, caramelized onions, balsamic glaze) and it never tastes the same. Sometimes there's a lot of bacon, sometimes not. Sometimes you... More
