Description: Established in 1947Salerno's first opened it's doors in May, 1947 in the Southend of Bridgeport. The war was over and the G.I.s brought back a taste for pizza. Billy and Tina worked hard to get their little place going. In 1954, the pizzeria was moved to the East End of Bridgeport and renamed The C&C Pizzeria. There, the business flourished and it was decided to introduce our family's recipes along with the pizza and grinders. An opportunity opened in 1970 to open a pizzeria in the Cutrufello Building in Stratford, CT. The family decided to rename the pizzeria. Salerno's Apizza has been in the same location ever since. Today, Salerno's in Stratford serves not only the original pizza it first served in 1947....but, a selection of homemade (from scratch) pastas and sauces, specialty dishes and offers a dining room seating 70. The decor is retro 1940s and the music is Doo-Wop. Salerno's also accepts phone- in orders for pick-up. All of our recipes are available as catering trays. Bring the family!

“Great pizza, bussling atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Haven't been to Salerno's in a while. Went with friends and had the works pie and sausage pie. They were great. Crust was nicely brown and the topping were fresh and tasty. We had small salads before hand which were good.Service was quick and enjoyable. Even the left overs cooked up very good in the toaster oven. I'll have to go here more often.

“Try the "HUGE" calzones!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I alway have the saudage calzone which just fits inside a large pizza box. The inside is stuffed with tons of ricotta cheese and plenty of sausage. Along with this comes a side of sweet sauce for dunking. Very consistant in quality! A+

“Terrific pizza but greasy”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Great taste but it will swim in grease. Get past that and a tasty pie. Building is old, so atmosphere is too. Wait is long. Value is good.
