Creative & delish!

Stopped in for a quick, early dinner before an evening meeting & was delighted! The pizza was wonderful! Thin, crispy crust & imaginative yet well balanced toppings! The place is small & friendly, so arrive here early to get a seat!

The restaurant is small and cozy, and the owners and wait staff are warm and friendly. Their pizza is delicious, by far the best I've ever had. They take care to source their ingredients from local farms, and change the menu with the season. Highly recommended!

Make a reservation because this place only seats about 14! It was fun to watch up close our pizzas being prepared and cooked in the wood-fired oven. The pizza crust was thin and tasty. We had 3 pizza- only offer one size which I would consider a small. We had the special: meatball Margarita, Pere: pear , Gorgonzola, mozzarella and... More

Every handcrafted pizza is a labor of love at this gem of a restaurant. The seasonally changing menu incorporates fresh, local ingredients chosen carefully to attain the best possible final product. Very imaginative combinations make for delicious pizza and salads. The service is warm, friendly and attentive. Don't miss!

Brick oven pizza at it's best, featured seasonal offerings always very innovative. Owners have authored two Italian cookbooks and have traveled and trained extensively in Italy. The way Wooster street was over 50 years ago. They love what they create and it shows in every thing they prepare.

While small with few seats, Bufalina puts out the best pie in the area, which includes New Haven's pizza icons. The place has warmth both from the wood oven and the owners who are most welcoming. The pies are creative but not far out. They use top ingredients and their skill with the thin crust pies make for perfection.

Melissa and Matt studied all types of Italian cuisine while traveling Italy. I'm pretty sure that they must have a favorite but all of their pizzas are unique.the menu changes often, so their is something new to try. Although the restaurant is small, in the summer they do have outdoor dining. It's a fun place. M & M have brought... More

brick oven gourmet pizzas made right in front of you. Beware, reservations are almost always needed, as the tiny place only seats like 10 people. Also no air-conditioning, but they do have outdoor seating.

Matt, who bakes the pizzas that his wife Melissa so skilfully creates are the best anywhere. I will say that without a doubt that they make the best pizza on earth in their wood fired stone oven one at a time with love. My wife and I went here for pizzas as was our Wednesday ritual every week for us.... More
