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

Little Rendezvous has been my favorite pizza in town for years, but of late we just haven't ordered pizza for our house very often. We were in the mood tonight, and made the short trip for pick up. As the three of us were eating it, I recalled the last time we had it, we were wondering if the pizza... More

Unfortunately I will not be able to order pizza from here ever again. It taste delicious, however when my husband went to pick it up they were so rude that when he mentioned how warm it was in the place (which is understandable this time of year and in a HOT pizza over restaurant) they reacted rudely. And it was... More

Little Rendezvous has been a mainstay for pizza since I was a teenager. The place has changed hands in the last few years but the pizza has stayed the same. Fifty years later it's still the best in town. If you get a chance don't miss it.
