Best pizza and Grinders in New England

My family has been eating at Sunset since I was a small child. I now live in Ohio, but every time I return to visit, I must stop at Sunset for their yummy pizza and grinders. Our dear friends Peter and Tula still own the place, it hasn't changed at all still as I remember.

The waitress is had an inviting smile. The owner walked around to say hello. It was clean. I had the Eggplant Parm and it was the best . I have eaten. They give a lot of food.

Lovely dinner in this restaurant: good food quality and kind service. Pizza is one of the best ever eaten far from Italy! The owner, a man from Greece, is very friendly and we had a pleasant talk with him.

On the top of Laurel Hill is a quiet little place that serves the best pizza. The bottom of the thin crust is always crunchy. The cheese is always real cheese that makes strings between your bite and the slice. My favorite is onion and black olive. Its not frozen diced onion pieces sprinkled delicately but whole onion slices that... More

Sunset Pizza has the best food and their service is spectacular. The owner Peter comes to each table to talk to his patrons and find out if they like their meal. Such a quaint little place. I recommend people to try this place.

My family and I were in Norwich for a few days. We were exhausted after a long day, looking for some take out. I actually searched on Trip Advisor for some local suggestions, and Sunset Pizza popped up. We just ordered the usual, spaghetti and meatballs and a meatball sub. They were excellent!! The pasta was perfectly cooked-very hard to... More

This is the best pizza place I have ever been to. The pizza is fantastic. Their grinders ROCK and the pasta is wonderful. The owners are there all the time and treat everyone like family. It's a great overall experience for a great price.

Been going there for years. Easy to miss but worth finding it. Pizza is very good (sort of a thick crust) but the egplant parm is the absolute best. You can split it for two people but I never do. Basic "bowl salad" can be had with several dressings some of which I believe they make. Peter and his wife... More

Greek pizza made well. Small dining area, but that's what takeout is for. Chicken fingers were fantastic.
