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

I placed an order for the Stern's special (roasted garlic, red peppers, and sausage), arrived a little early so had to wait a few minutes but that just meant hotter pizza to take home. Service was friendly. Place was definitely busy around lunchtime on a Saturday. The pizza was good - not the best I've had but better than most... More

NY Pizza lovers will appreciate this cozy restaurant. A few tables, a TV and a NY Post to browse while you wait. Nice desserts. Thin crust pizza, square Sicilian.... all delicious. who said CT can't do pizza?

We were driving nearby with a friend and decided to walk in for lunch. The place itself- nothing fancy, just a basic pizza take-out place, with some tables. We ordered a house salad and a small chicken artichoke pizza. The girl brought us the salad and we said, oh God! It was a bunch of iceberg lettuce, literally two slices... More

Nice, small pizzeria. Seating outside, small dining area inside. Excellent thin crusted pizza cooked with a nice crispy crust. Toppings were excellent and not skimpy. This and Pepe's pizza is the only pizza I eat.

If you are in the mood for pizza and willing to pick it up there is no place better in Newtown. Try their Tuscan or Stern Special and you may actually give up pepperoni or sausage pizzas. Just remember you come here for their pizza, everything else is standard Italian fare.

Located on rte 25 in Newtown, you could easily drive by not noticing this inconspicuous restaurant. Looks more like a house than a business, but don't be fooled, they have some great food here. Pay attention! I worked in Newtown until I retired a few years back. The company I worked for alway used Carminuccios's to cater some of our... More
