Cheese pizza was ok. About the thinnest pizza we have ever had. If you're hungry order more than usual.

Stayed in the Ellsworth area as our base for exploring Acadia. Called and ordered pizza and salad for us to pick up. Young lady on the phone very pleasant, and she was there when we arrived. She was on the phone with another call-in who was taking FOREVER to order. She remained pleasant with that person while at the same... More

I had high hopes as a local person, actually the motel owner, had recommended Finelli's highly. I was first disappointed when we opened the door...it was very basic. Just a few plain tables with straight chairs, a game room with 4 or 5 games & several small picnic tables outside up against the wall. 2nd disappointment was plastic knives &... More

Always have enjoyed the pizza. Thin crust fresh ingredients. Today, however, I was disappointed. The pie was undercooked and not hot. The crust was soggy.

I usually get the Italian Grinder on ciabatta which is excellent (and reasonably priced). Kids like the pizza, of which there are usually 10+ options to order in slices (and they obviously sell whole pies). They sell beer as well. Quick and easy.

Finelli's has received awards for best pizza both for in the area and at the state level. We were guests at a nearby hotel and the front desk recommended Finelli's when we inquired about pizza delivery. Turns out we could walk to this place, so we did and ordered two pizzas to go. The restaurant itself has no air conditioning,... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for something low key and delicious but didn't want to go to a chain. Finellis did not disappoint, plus the service and the arcade room were a plus! Would def return

Fresh tomatoes and basil on a slice? Sure, anytime! Finelli's crust is a thin NY Style and it's delicious. And you can get a beer here. They also have a cooler with a nice selection of cold, bottled juices and iced teas. My favorite local pizza and it's my favorite place for a quick-bite stop. The guys who make the... More

After days of LOBSTER, we needed a change and decided to try Finelli's. They didn't disappoint! We were able to order a med pizza 1/2 cheese and 1/2 Carnivorous so we could both get what we wanted. It arrived quickly and piping hot. Decor isn't much but the pizza is very good.

I was in town visiting friends who love this place. We got a veggie pizza and a cheese steak to go. The food was good. There were a lot of fillings on the sub. The restaurant had friendly people working it and a little arcade room to play some pinball while you waited.

Thank YummyTravelsX2
