Best Pizza in Ellsworth

We travel frequently. Whenever we overnight anywhere, a tradition is to look for a Papa Johns pizza for delivery. No Papa Johns in Ellsworth, did the research and found Finellie's, a quarter mile from the Adadian Resort where we stayed. Outstanding pizza! Wife got an Americano Calzone, and I... read more

I frequent visit this establishment a few times a year. This is the first time I stopped for a late lunch since last fall. I ordered 2 slices of the pesto pizza. I am not kidding the crust was like a sheet of paper. Not sure what happened. Quite expensive to spend over 6 dollars for 2 slices. I could... More

They offer several unique types of toppings and the standards. I liked the crust a lot, not doughy or thick... esp. good if you're watching carbs. It is a bit of a dive inside but that didn't affect my fondness for the pizza! Local water tasted not that great... the menu was varied and the place never stopped having people... More

I go here when I want pizza in Ellsworth. It's classic thin NY style pizza. Huge pieces and lots of topping choices. I always enjoy a pint while I wait. The staff is fun and friendly. I have been as an eat in and a take out customer. Writing the review makes me want to go now! The atmosphere could... More

Delicious, generous and well prepared. Could have used a little more tomato sauce. My fault for not asking. Thank you.

This isn't the place to go for a cheap ( at least for our income level!), filling "don't want to cook" meal, but it's delicious, well crafted unusual pizza, beer, and desserts. Every time we go, we have a terrific meal. Highly recommended!

Spent the day running all over Acadia National Park and heading back to the motel -- saw the bright Finelli signs and WOW great NY pizza it was. Quick to cook and tasty tasty to eat -- came back next day for another slice or two and a happy belly.

It would be a compliment to say our meals were not good. The pizza was cold and the wings tasted like something microwaved from a frozen dinner box. Wings were half hot and half cold with loose white droopy skin and a very thin sauce thrown on top. Really bad. The staff was nice enough but I sure wouldn't go... More

We had a hankering for pizza and ran into Finallis as we were driving to our rental. We liked enough we ate there twice. Thin crust, the right proportion of sauce to meat to cheese. I'm craving it right now
