Thin crust cooked crispy with a nice assortment of toppings, including a few local additions (blueberries). Great pizza, decent prices, and also available by the slice. Great for take out or a quick bite on the run.

My most favorite pizza!! Love the option of buying by the slice for a variety of deliciousness!! Great for a quick lunch or a low key dinner option.

Granted, A lot of us from up here in Maine don't really understand the allure of "New York Pizza" (especially since Sox/Patriots fans generally don't like NY on principle), but I recently tried some of Finelli Pizzeria's famous New York style pizza. Four of the large ones were delivered to my office and I have never seen anything go that... More

We called Finelli's and ordered one of their speciality pizzas, a pesto tomato 14" for $15.75. I was told it would be ready for pick-up in twenty minutes. My husband gets there in twenty minutes gets back to our hotel in three minutes to find the pizza stone cold! It was obvious that the pizza had been sitting for quite... More

We ordered 2 large pies to go, on a rainy night. It took 25 minutes, but it was made from scratch & while we waited. Both were "Specials" and worth the wait. Nice flavor and texture variety for the adults, but still popular with the kids.

We had a long drive and wanted to eat before getting to Bar Harbor. While we ended up waiting forever for our pizza, it was FANTASTIC And the staff went out of their way to make their mistake right. They couldn't have been nicer and accommodating. ...that means A LOT. Back to the pizza. ...the crust is thin, hand tossed,... More

Excellent thin crust pizza cooked just right in an unpretentious location on the road to Acadia National Park. Order at the counter. My garden pizza was as good as any I've ever had and better than almost all - thankfully not salty but very tasty without loading on cheese. Others were very pleased with their "Satyricon" pizza choices also. Slices... More

We LOVE Finelli's pizza. Fabulous convenience of getting it by the slice and the slices are near perfect. Thin, but not too thin a crust. Heated up to perfection. Love the Bianco with ricotta and spinach. They always have a good variety of pizzas available. Friendly, easy place to enjoy. Great cheesecake too. Did not love a salad I got... More

While it wasn't bad, the large cheese pie was far from "NY style thin crust". A little burnt and light on the cheese and sauce. Ordered a dozen of the buffalo wings, which were actually very good - big and well-cooked without being too crisp on the outside. Buffalo sauce was spicy with good flavor but not out of control....

Ended up here due to the misgivings of another eatery. Glad we did. Great pizza sauce - usually have to add salt pepper and spices to my pizza, not with this one. Perfect taste. Wouldn't quite call it NY style, but still a good slice of Pizza. They have different kinds and all are available by the slice as well.... More
