I have been visiting little rendezvous since 1950s. It has been a consistent pie for years. The competition the pizza business is fierce. Little rendezvous still does a very good business. I will always enjoy my pizza from Little rendezvous.

Been around for years. Very good pizzas from old wood burning oven. Pizzas are pizzas, They have a large variety including thin crust and great sauce.

I've lived in Meriden for 7 years and was only aware of this place because of Trip Advisor. It's good pizza but I don't get the raves. Sorry.

The Hartford Courant listed this restaurant among it's top 10 pizza restaurants in Connecticut. Since it was in the next town over, we decided to check it out.

I found out about this place from a local news paper article.I must say I was very disappointed.Dough was very hard and burnt..I don't know why but i will give them one more try.Maybe they had a bad day... I'm a big fan of good pizza and this one wasn't good

It honestly was in 2011 that I ate here, but of all the pizza I had on the east coast, this was the best. I ate an entire large for myself in one sitting. Coal fired to perfection. I dream about this monthly. I wish i lived in CT so I could have it more often.

First time visitor here. Excellent pizza!! Very friendly staff!! Not what I was expecting when I walked into the restaurant. Only about four tables to eat in. Kitchen and pickup area way in the back. I'll be back again!
