REALLY good pizza!

The crust on this pizza has a flavor that reminds me of Sally's Pizza in New Haven. Delicious. My only complaint: I love fresh mushrooms on a pizza, and these, I was told when I saw them and asked, are canned. For a place that boasts turning out a top-rated pizza, why would they serve canned... read more

Good service, attentive staff. Delicious food and plentiful choices. On the main road between Bethel and Newtown, CT. Worth the drive from Bethel.

Nice home style pizza place that is a converted house. Nice pizza and nice service. They try to be the best in the area but depends on how you like your pie.

It's been a few years and I though I should try this again. What a bad choice. The pizza was horrible. The crust tasted like pure flour and nothing else. The vegetables were not cooked, just placed on top of this flour mess and non existent sauce and mystery cheese. I really think the cardboard box would have been better.... More

We long thought C's pizza was the best under the original owner. Then the restaurant changed hands, maybe a couple of times, and over time the pizza became very ordinary. We have stopped going but certainly would return if the old recipe was restored. How about it guys?

In a town with many, many pizza outlets, some in an atmosphere of fine dining, some part a full Italian restaurant fare, and a few being little more than pizza with a few other options. Carminuccios falls more into the latter, it is very casual and family, inside and seasonally outside. Their pizza is very consistent, nicely built and properly... More

This used to be a dynamite place to get unique pizzas and ok salads. We would go out of our way to stop here, even if we were not hungry. Not any more. Pizzas were ordinary at best, and a Cesar salad sucked. Topped off with missing toppings on our pies. Will not return.

Ordered many of the top rated pies and quite frankly was disappointed. The hype wasn't justified. Don't think the value is here either. Won't return for another try.
