We recently tried Brick Oven. The White Pie was great with a thin crust. I had Veal Parm. It was fork tender and the sauce was fresh and really good. The best part was when I got the check. Dinner for 4 with wine for $100. All were happy. Give it a try. Great Value.

Nice mostly homemade meals with fresh ingredients. The meatballs are a good meal by themselves. Nice pizza and calzones. I brought a group of teenagers here and there was nothing left.

I've eaten here 3 times in the last 2 weeks and keep returning to try all their offerings. I love their thin crust pizza and the sauce is better than other local places like Pepe's, Fairfield Pizza, Captains pizza, and Planet pizza. I've also tried the veal parmigiana and love it. They use fresh veal, not frozen like most other... More

I'm writing a 5 star review for this restaurant for 2 reasons, one is the food is excellent, very casual and very affordable. Great pizza, pasta and a great varied menu. Chicken parmasean is great, chicken francaise and they have amazing home made bread! I'm also writing 5 stars because of the quality and compassion of the staff and owners.... More

I have eaten here on several occasions throughout the years, and it is always pretty good. This time, I ordered a small Pepperoni pizza, which was made to order and delivered to the table extremely quickly. It stood up to gravity (no one likes a drippy pizza), and it was flavorful. It was a pity I was the only patron... More

Bridgeport can be an uneven town to visit, to say the least, but this local spot is in a safe enough area just over the line from Fairfield. This is a family place with a beer and wine menu. The salads are OK. There are a limited number of dishes, but the Brick Oven Pizza is the main attraction. The... More

I LOVE Brick Oven's pizza! I like the thinness of the crust, it is not extra greasy nor is the amount of mozzarella cheese overwhelming. It's just right. I have not tried any of their other foods besides their salads but I thoroughly enjoy their pizza.

Stopped in for some quick take-out and made a decision to come back for a meal. The take-out was delicious - "fried zucchini, salad & pasta with a marinara sauce." After tasting that, planned to go back almost immediately and when I did, I was not disappointed! The staff was welcoming and helpful and the food was most deliciously satisfying!

Went this past Saturday, and it was very busy but very disorganized. The waitress said they were new and believe me they all had no clue. Where was the usual staff? It was definitely an "off night". It took way too long to get the food, no silverware, and lots of attitude! This place is ususally "on point" with both... More
