I moved to Newington in 2014 and have been a faithful weekly Yanni's customer since! Last year I moved to the South side of town and will drive to the North End for Yanni's rather than the pizza joints around me. One thing I learned, when ordering the pizza for take out, if the say it'll be ready in 20... More

Yanni started this restaurant following in his parents footsteps when the owned Paradise Pizza in New Britain. He certainly hasn't disappointed them or their following. The quality of the pizza ingredients is excellent and the toppings plentiful The dinner portions are great as well, as evidenced by the number of "leftovers" taken away by many happy guests. It's a little... More

I've been here about a dozen times and while I think the food is good (which is the only reason I've set myself up for continuous disappointment) I've finally reached my end. The service from this uncaring, unapologetic staff is beyond the pale. At least half of my visits have resulted in twice the wait time as estimated with the... More

Seemingly a small diner, and it is only by size...the service, quality and quantity is super! Luncheon special till 4pm, 16 tables, about 8 employees to insure a delightful experience ... I had the luncheon Eggplant parm, salad and veggies. And....home made carrot cake, which was large enough for 2! Waitress was so kind and servicing .... Thank you! Worth... More

Great little place - gets busy during typical times so there can sometimes be a wait, but the food is delicious and there is a lot of variety on the menu. It is reasonably priced, and the wait staff is always very friendly and attentive.

Friendly staff, good size portions and a nice variety of daily specials are always on tap at Yanni's. We eat here every few weeks and in between enjoy take out pizza.

This place is one of those hidden gems that is a LOT more than just a pizza joint. We've been coming weekly for lunch and their list of daily specials is outstanding. Seafood is sourced from City Fish as we've seen the truck in the parking lot and the locals know City Fish supplies the "top" restaurants in the Hartford... More
