one of the best pizzas in the area

Little Rendezvous is a gem worthy of New Haven standards pizza. Its a unique place with a terrific coal brick oven crust thats the key, try it.

great thin crust, well done, and worth the wait! Has been here for years, the only thing I would recommend is going back to "real" mozzarella cheese. Last time I saw a bag of "Kirkland" brand cheese, In my opinion, that's a little disgusting.

Will stand up to any New Haven Pizza or New York pizza for that matter. Have been going there for 60 years or more. Best pizza in the state of Connecticut.

Serving coal fired BRICK oven pizza, and for the past 70 years people have been coming from towns all around Connecticut to enjoy their pizza. I'm not a crust person, but when we order from Lil Vous, I eat every single crumb! Delicious to the very last bite, all ingredients are of the finest quality!!!

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.
