I've lived in Meriden for 7 years and was only aware of this place because of Trip Advisor. It's good pizza but I don't get the raves. Sorry.

The Hartford Courant listed this restaurant among it's top 10 pizza restaurants in Connecticut. Since it was in the next town over, we decided to check it out. We enjoyed it but it had burnt crust gave it a bit of a bad after taste; however, it didn't prevent me from eating 5 slices of my green pepper pizza pie.... More

I found out about this place from a local news paper article.I must say I was very disappointed.Dough was very hard and burnt..I don't know why but i will give them one more try.Maybe they had a bad day... I'm a big fan of good pizza and this one wasn't good

It honestly was in 2011 that I ate here, but of all the pizza I had on the east coast, this was the best. I ate an entire large for myself in one sitting. Coal fired to perfection. I dream about this monthly. I wish i lived in CT so I could have it more often.

First time visitor here. Excellent pizza!! Very friendly staff!! Not what I was expecting when I walked into the restaurant. Only about four tables to eat in. Kitchen and pickup area way in the back. I'll be back again!

Nothing special here. The crust is like cardboard and the owner seems like he's PO at the world. New Haven has far better options for pizza. Well worth the extra drive,

They make a great thin-crust pizza and also have gluten free options. My husband grew up on this Meriden staple. I'd recommend take out as the dining room is very small

I had the pleasure of eating at Frank Pepe Pizza at Mohegan Sun 2 monthes ago. I was with my family and 2 friends and we had plenty of food to go around. The salad we ordered was delicious and everyone was in love with the crispy pizza crust and sausauge and cheese pizza that we ordered.
