We generally enjoy the pizza and the atmosphere at Conte's. However, this visit was quite different. The pizza was good, but the atmosphere was anything but inviting. The wait staff was rude and not attentive. Perhaps something has happened, but not the place I so fondly remember.

Over the years, I offend stop into Conte's for tomato pie. I like the old school atmosphere and hospitality. Well tonight Conte's only lived up to half their earnings . We were seated quickly but without menus. Drink order was taken but no drinks came until after reminded and after salad. The waitress must have been experiencing a really bad... More

This pizzeria that is dated and filled with locals at lunch but boy is that pizza delicious! Thin crust with a great cheese combination. A medium plain pizza, a medium pepperoni and a beer filled us up! Will always go back given the chance.

Brought my family to Conte's on Witherspoon in Princeton. Very Disappointed :( Not the same place I remembered.. . Thin crust, sad, was Very weak and the sauce tasted just poured out of the can. Where was the thin crust with bite, not dough, and that, Ummm, simmered tomato sauce with the cheese? I can get better from ShopRite.

I've been coming here for a few years now. For the reviewer that said the pizza was tasteless my recommendation is to get garlic on the pizza and then add additional toppings if you choose. For a time there this was my favorite in the area but I've been leaning more toward the Neopolitan style lately. I still occasionally like... More

We've been coming here for almost 20 years. They have the best pepperoni pizza which is saying a lot in a region that has some great pizza places. The pizza is thin and crispy and the pepperoni is small and thick and curls up to make little bowls of pepperoni juice. Yum Conte's is a local place and has a... More

People I know raved about this place being the best pizza ever...really? They brought home 5 different pies, and I tried a piece of each, and way overrated and tasteless.

Never been here but this hidden gem is just across from the Princeton municipal building and pool. It is an unassuming bar set behind an open space. They have fantastic pizza but only full pies. Packed with locals. Place to go when teaching at the hall!
