“Casual Pizza Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

First and Last is a good place to go when you don't want to fuss. It is large enough that you can get in on the spur of the moment. We often eat in the bar area which is very comfortable. The food can be a little inconsistent - sometimes very good and other times not so much. The pizza is great.

“Pizza. Pasta. No regrets.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

They've come a long way from being the "first" tavern in Wethersfield and the "last" in Hartford as you cross the town line. They have brought all their expertise and recipes with them intact. Can't go wrong with any of the pizza or pasta - I'll bet the rest is great but I never get past those two childhood favorites.

“An Old favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

A spin off from the original in the south end of Hartford. 20+ years agoe the original small tavern expanded beyond the original 14 item menu and this location is one of the expansions from that. We particularly enjoy the "Special" from the "original" hi lighted menu.

“A little romantic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I was there with a date and had to wait about 10 minutes. The placed seemed very busy. We were seated in the back in a very big both with high seats. It seemed very quiet and we were able to talk to each other. We enjoyed the food.I would say worth the 35 mile trip.

“Best Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The appetizers are really good and then when the pizza came, it was just so mouthwatering and then it tasted as good as it looked, the service was just so good!
