Even under new-ish ownership this is hands down the best pizza in CT regardless of any "Best Of" polls that toss that award to Frank Pepe. Whether it is the flour, the salt ratio, the oven temp., the local ingredients or the water, this pizza captures the essence of Neapolitan style pizza: chewy but abbot charred, flavorful and capable of...

get in line! this restaurant is amazing. It is not your typical cheese and sausage pizza restaurant . If that is what you are looking for go down the street. This is farm to table dinning. If your not in the mood for pizza, go for the seasonal salads, you can order several different types all fresh.. Ingredients change with... More

I love the pizza here. And the staff is very sweet and friendly as well. If I could change one thing, it would be a better system for the waiting. It seems very chaotic, and does not seem to work well, which leads to large confusing groups of people constantly milling around the entrance and blocking both outgoing and incoming... More

Pizzas are outstanding, the atmosphere is fun, wine/cocktail list is great for a "pizza joint". Get here early on Saturdays.....they fill up fast. Save room for the cardiac arrest ice cream.....you'll be glad you did

This is one of Danbury's popular pizza places where they serve well prepared and somewhat unusual thin crust pizzas and salads. The service is invariably good and friendly. The adjoining and internally connected bar is a good place to hang out when they have wait times (as can happen during rush times on weekends). The rustic ambiance is good despite... More

We enjoyed great service, great pizza and beer. Great prices as well. We found this place on Yelp where we always search for five stars and two dollar sign restaurants. This is popped up and it proved to be correct.

We were just hungry and saw this pizza restaurant and decided to give it a try. That was a good decision as the atmospherics was great, service great, and Pizza great. What more can you ask for. They cooked our chicken wings in the Pizza over and they were good and that was unique to us.

Had not been to Stanziatos since it changed hands. Restaurant and menu has hardly changed. Pizza is still creative and delicious, and the pizza crust is actually a bit improved. Several salads now, and they come in half and full sizes to accommodate different size appetites. Restaurant at opposite end of strip has changed, not sure how that has impacted... More
