Great pizza with many selections other than pizza also. You can eat in or take out. Delicious either way. If you have picky children - they sell by the slice also! Bravo!

Finelli's Calzone is delicious, I was a bit surprised at the portion couldn't eat it in one meal but was great for leftovers too!. The staff are friendly and have good suggestions on the menu.

Love it. NY style, fresh, well worth a visit. Decor could use revamping, but hey, it is a pizza shop.Try the Satyricon! Calling ahead is a great idea, they are usually quite busy.

I had seen tv ads for Finelli's for quite a while but live an hour away and hadn't tried it. We ended up staying in Ellsworth for a week and decided to finally stop in. We got 3 take out pizzas and when we opened the boxes back at the hotel we saw they were quite burned. The crust was... More

My husband had a craving for pizza on our second day in Ellsworth and we found Finelli's close by. Tony served us and offered to do a half and half pizza, or a two slice and pint deal. We got the two slices (pepperoni) and it was so good we ordered a tomato and pesto as well. Incredible! The best... More

You order up at the counter & pull out soda, tea, or other drinks from cooler. They have beer & wine. But no Iceberg beer from Newfoundland!!!!!! You can't have it all.

Stopped in for a quick slice as we were out doing errands. First time in and have to say they serve a great pizza! We own a pizza shop back home and are very fussy....they did not disappoint! We had the tomato pesto, spinach & ricotta, and tomato & meatball. My favorite was the tomato pesto which was amazing! But... More

The pizza was good but the service was slow. They apologized for the slow service and I would definitely return to give them another try.

Not long on ambience, but Finelli's does turn out a good New York-style pie. The pizzas are hand-tossed in the back, the crust is thin and crispy, and the tomato sauce and cheese are flavorful. However, some of the toppings are just OK (I wouldn't go for the sausage again...) Service is pretty good. This is a good stop if... More

After stuffing ourselves with lobster much of the week, we wanted pizza for a change. Finelli's got good reviews here and was ranked above Pat's place so we ordered. Not a good choice. While the pizza looked great and the slices were large, there was very little sauce and an even fewer amount of cheese. Even the bianco pizza was... More
