Good Pizza

The pizza is good, but certainly not in the same league as the big three in New Haven. Nice thin crust. A little on the expensive side though. I would get this pizza again when in Newtown, but was not as impressed as some of the other reviewers.

On the way home from Bridgeport we stopped in to see what we could get to go since we didn't want to sit down for a meal. Ordered a meatball parm hero and was out in 10 minutes. Great sauce I must say, and the meatballs were freshly made. It's a small place but cozy if it's not packed. real... 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?
