And that's from a New Yorker who not surprisingly thinks NY pizza is the best. The sauce was excellent ( not too sweet), just the right amount of mozzarella, good portion of meat toppings (we chose meatball & pepperoni) and a crust that was thin but not soggy. We actually like a little thicker crust but this crust was absolutely... More

We were staying right next door at the hampton inn, and since we were completely tired from driving all the way from Portland earlier in the day, we decided to make it easy on ourselves and just go next door to Finelli. Both had the 2 slices and a beer (or in the wife's case a glass of wine) for... More

Tasty thin crust NY style pizza by the slice or a whole pie. Reasonably priced old school pizza place with a small video arcade.

It took almost 40 minutes to get all of our food (they dropped the first pizza). They brought out the food for half of our family and by the time we were finished the pizza arrived for the other 2 kids. The food was excellent, the prices were good and we weren't in a hurry so it all worked out.

First, let me say, we did not try the food. We tried to go here 30 minutes before closing. Apparently the teenagers who were running the place were in a hurry to leave. They had already started stacking some chairs up. They ignored us for a while, but when one of the girls came over to try and find seats... More

My issues are more with the service than the food, although I find that to be pretty average as well. Anyway, hadn't been there for a while, so I decided to go there on my lunch hour for something different. I quickly regretted it. I'll preface this by saying I know it's summer and it's tourist season, so I did... More

I have never been disappointed with Finelli's pizza. The best darned Pizza around as far as I am concerned! The variety they make and the quality is top notch. The place itself has a great open airy feel to it and the staff have never been anything but very nice and quite helpful. This is the only place I buy... More

Whenever I have friends heading to Ellsworth or Bar Harbor I recommend Finelli Pizzeria. The pizza has a NY style thin Crust and it great. I like that I can buy it by the slice so that when I am traveling alone I do not have to order a whole pizza and I can have my favorite the spinach and... More
