Best brick oven pizza for miles.

No frills. Just pizza. Pizza at it's best. May eat in ,not much room. Mostly take out. Worth the wait on weekends.

Ordered and picked up a couple of pizzas. Despite having to wait a little longer because it was a busy night--Halloween--the pizzas were excellent.

We love Little Rendezvous and have been ordering pizza from them for years! It's definitely a take out only place, though there are a few small tables inside. It's old fashioned New Haven type pizza with a thin well done crust, delicious tomato-y sauce, and excellent quality cheese - all cooked in an authentic brick oven. Whenever we call, they... More

None of the pizza places in Meriden can compare to the Rendezvous! This is authentic brick oven pizza. The Rendezvous has been around for years and one taste of the pizza will tell you why. Their House special - sausage, peppers, onions and mushrooms, is my husband's favorite. The pizza is cooked well done. By that I mean, singed around... More

Pizza is all you can get here. It's a cash only, very old establishment and it shows. The pizza is very good but the place leaves something to be desired.

It has been years since we had pizza from "little rendezvous"but after hearing so much good reviews -- we ordered one Saturday- and we were NOT disappointed- when you call they ask what type crust you want-(that is very different)- for sure would order again- just make sure you ask for a little extra sauce and crispy but not burnt-...

I would rank the following pizza places over Little Rendezvous: Modern Apizza, Trackside in Wallingford, but good pie. Cool little place.

We ordered a large pizza and it was much larger than I expected it to be. The sauce was great and it was cooked to perfection. This place has been here for many years and it's obvious that that they pay attention to their customers' requests

Yup that's right.... nothing but pizza here. Real pizza, handmade dough, 126 year old coal fired oven -- what more do you need? My husband and I regularly travel the 30+ miles from home just for this pizza. It's not "New Haven-style" thin crust (although they do offer that as an option, as well as extra thick and even gluten-free)... More
