This place has been around forever, and they make an extremely tasty thin-crust pizza much like that I remember from Lento's in Brooklyn, which closed a long time ago. Good prices, and Peroni on tap - what more could you want? Enjoy! Just plan on waiting a half hour or more for a table - it's that good!

Can you find better in New Haven? Yeah, but that's a haul. This is BY FAR the best pizza in town, and I always make a stop there whenever I'm visiting. Go early -- it gets really busy and an hour wait on a Friday or Saturday night is normal.

If this is the best pizza Princeton has to offer I'm glad I was too dumb to ever go to college there. The pizza was terrible and the place has all of the charm of a bowling alley. Not sure what is up with all of the glowing reviews. I've had better pizza (by far) out of a box from... More

I liked the fact that it's a local place and is as far from a chain as possible. Overall I think people were friendly, but also not above and beyond. I got the "special" pizza pie and it was ok but really felt it had just too much off all on it to be really enjoyed. So possible I took... More

Supper pizza place - one of the best in the world (and I've been to a lot). Nothing fancy. Just really good basic Italian pizza. Terrific bar. Often long wait to get a table but can usually sit at the bar. Waiters are really friendly. Great beer. A favorite spot for a casual, reasonably priced meal.

A must if you are in the area. Its a dive but worth it. I have never tried anything but the pizza, but the pizza is very, very good.

Conte's has been around forever and the pizza is always consistently good. They have a good system in place where you order while waiting to be seated and the hot pizza is delivered to the table soon after you're seated. Pizza seems like a simple enough dish, but after moving out of New Jersey 15-years ago I've learn to appreciate... More

Years of visiting this place. Old world looking bar with great tomato pies, perfectly chilled peroni beers and the beauty that it is family owned by super nice people.
