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 mushrooms on it?

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.

This is our family favorite. Would highly recommend this pizza. It's fabulous, thin crust style. I'm traditional cheese fan, but my husband loves the chicken bbq pizza as well. Very casual place with outside patio.

I have given this small pizza joint 6 attempts to "like". 3 in house seating and 3 pick up. The wait is horrendous for pick up and uncomfortably noisy for seated dining. I saw advertised somewhere in the local newspaper touting themselves as best pizza in the country- I would have to say that is Not Even Close. Our pizzas... More

Tastes like true NY pizza, thin crust, delicious, fresh toppings. Would give a 5 star but crust is just a little too overdone, too often. Maybe some like it like that.

Great pie - generous toppings --- Eddie is the best This pizza rivals any of the New Haven pizzas - where Eddie cut his teeth - and now Newtown gets great pizza and great service
