Bistro is a classy place, but in my opinion, the Salmon is better at Little Colombia down the street, and LC has(had) a great lunch for maybe $12 featuring homemade soup,), and rice, salad and plantains. I have not been there since Covid started but if you are back to indoor dining, it has good food and fair prices.

Nice décor and no wait.

I went to LC once for lunch and once for dinner. I liked it well enough but I like the overall menu (and especially the wines) better at Bistro (and their Salmon a la Plancha is probably the entree I order most frequently). I didn't try the salmon at LC though, so I will keep that in mind when I return.

BTW, it's not pizza, but check out Bistro Mediterranean in East Haven for a nice meal at very reasonable prices. They have a nice outdoor patio now, too.

I had, probably, the worst dining experience of my life at that place. I'm assuming it was just a really, really off day but everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong. The owner was great though and comped everything and apologized profusely for all of the issues.

It can definitely happen there. I've been going since they opened and they know me and usually take pretty good care of me, but even I have had some not great meals/experiences there. They get over their heads sometimes, but as you note they are usually very good about trying to make it right.

I hesitate to send people there because half the time something gets screwed up for them and I hear about it. No question it will happen with @Dove .

The best was my wife and MIL going there without me one time and being totally ignored...until the owner recognized my wife and then tried to make up for it. Needless to say I still hear about that one.

Never in my lifetime did I think the best pizza in SW CT would be found in Greenwich. Hands down the best between Derby and the NY border.
its legit good. They know what theyre doing and pay attention to putting a quality pie pie out.

Somebody brought two large pies to my office as a thank you gesture. A mushroom/sausage and a pepperoni.

The pizza was amazing. Crunchy thin crust. Great-tasting toppings. Brought some home and my wife snagged a slice. She likey!!

Grand Apizza North in North Haven, on Rt 5.

Same fam has Grand Apizza in East Haven. Hoping the pies are amazing there, too.

Solid stuffed breads as well. Broccoli rabe, sausage, black olive is awesome. Decent eggplant parmigiana as well (sub or stuffed bread).

Rossini's love (by someone other than me) FTW.

Rossini's is my go to now that I live out this way. I will say I have been unsatisfied with pizza east of the river outside of Rossini's and Plum Tomato. I give Rossini the edge, unless you want some artisanal type pizza, because their prices are in line unlike most places out this way.

If you're looking for Wooster St. style apizza, try Apizza Grande in Coe St.
So, went to Apizza Grande on Coe Ave and brought home two pies today. Rock Solid. The sister pizza parleo to North Haven's Apizza Grande North.

This could be THE(!) take out joint for us.

For anyone who gets Tubi TV, there’s a great documentary called “Pizza, a love story” that details the history of Sally’s, Pepe’s, and Modern.

Grandma Style is an extremely underrated pizza. I make one every week for pizza night with my family. When we have friends over it is always a favorite as well. A quality sauce and quality fresh mozz (Calabro or Luizzi) is all it needs.

When I get up that way I also stop at Poppy and Rye for their Russian Pumpernickel/Black Bread. They make that really big loaf that can be cut into quarters. Like Colchester Bakery use to make. If I get there early enough.

We tried Parlor in Wilton today. Just take-out only due the ‘vid, but I can see why my friends have raved about it as a cozy dine-in spot.

I guess I’d call it “elevated” pizza. Personal pies, excellent ingredients but not a place to get a simple cheese pie. I had the soppressata honey pot pie and my wife had a buffalo cauliflower pie. I loved my pizza: a lil’ sweet a lil’ spicy, nice tang. For a Buffalo pie, it was nicely balanced: a light ranch drizzle, piquillo sauce, garlic, basil, pickled red onions...

A bit pricy and not a place I’d go to all the time, but very very good and they obviously put a lot of care into their food. I’d definitely try it again and highly recommend it.
