We found this place by accident, but the lunch was great! Even has a cute outdoor dining area for warmer weather ( it's a deli-no heaters!). Sandwiches were mega size and fresh. Clearly popular as it got more crowded the longer we lingered. Although we didn't try them ( and will have to find a reason to go back as... More

The pizza was never consistent here. It was sad when I asked if the mushrooms were fresh and they said they were canned. Why would you put rubber canned mushrooms on a fresh pizza if you are in the pizza business. Most places use fresh these days. We got a cheese pie and it was pretty good. The atmosphere is... More

I usually only order pizza from here. Best cheese pie in the area. Stay away from their chicken anything. If you want an Italian meal go elsewhere. If you want a great pizza go here.

the decor is not posh (tables, booths, fountain drinks), but the pizza is the absolute best. Our go to place and this town has many, many options. The outside patio is great on a warm evening (BYOB)... the service is prompt and complete... ...but did I say the thin-crust pizza is the BEST!

This place was recommended to me as the best pizza place in town. Dine in seating, primarily take-out menu.

So many different opinions on this pizzeria...love it, like it, it's ok or not the best! My personal opinion is very good pizza, great desserts, some grinders are average and wonderful sauce anyway you cut it!

We have a lot of visitors looking for a great East Coast pizza experience and I always send them here. Their slices are incredible though sometimes when getting a pie, it is a bit overcooked. THE KEY IS TO ORDER "LIGHT BAKED PIZZA". Still, this is by far the best Pizza in CT.

When visiting family here, there's the trap of eating at the same places over and over. This visit we forced a change and tried Carminuccio's. So glad we did. My wife and I loved the Mrs B's pizza, and we ordered a mushroom and sausage to appease those in the family who are averse to change. The sausage and mushroom... More

The pizza is delicious thin-crust pizza. It's got it's own unique profile, but for someone who loves true NYC and Hoboken pizza this is my go-to place in the area. A great sized slice for a normal price, it blows most places around here out of the water. A true small-town place, you can enjoy it on-site or to-go, and... More

Decent pizza, but pizza is all a matter of personal choice. People in the midwest or the south eat what I'd call terrible pizza, but they love it. Carminuccio's is good, but I wouldn't drive far to go there like I might drive to Sally's in New Haven. But if you live in Newtown or Bethel, give it a shot.
