We are new to the area and decided to try the place after reading several positive reviews on Yelp.
Atmosphere: It has a fun hip atmosphere but can get pretty loud between the music and acoustics of the place.
Food: I enjoy a well done pizza, but with that being said. The pizza was a little too chard to really enjoy all of the crust. However the toping and sauce were all first rate. I have been told that there wood fired wings are exceptional and will give them a try on my next visit.
Beer: They particularly shine in the draft department as most establishments in this area only carry the bland draft basics. I believe they had a total of 8 local and regional draft selections of good quality. During my visit I had the Six Points Resin. It was presented to me in a snifter which is the proper glassware for such a big beer.
Overall: I would visit them again, but I am more interested in imbibing in the draft selections than having their food. That being said I want this place to succeed as this area and CT in general needs more beer centric establishments.

Third trip here over a few months and contiuned to be impressed.

Pizza: good traditional crust with a mix of traditional and non-traditional offerings. All in the 12" personal variety. They highlight local and fresh produce and products. A welcome addition to the area. Prices are all over the map from about $12 a pie upto $18 which I find pricey for a 12" pie.

Other food: great salad and appetizer options.

Beer: well maintained and thoughtful bottle list. 4 taps. This time Evil Twin Ron and the Beast Ryan, Founders Red Rye PA, Smuttynose Old Brown Dog and Captain Lawrence Sunblock. Last time about 2 weeks ago they had Two Roads Igor's Dream and Maine Peeper.

Summary fresh local ingredients to make a solid pizza. Very good beer selection. Great atmosphere. Kid freindly earlier in the night. Slightly on the pricey side but you are paying for quality.

Stopped here on a whim after seeing the other review on beerfly. Really cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Oven to the left when you walk in and a small bar to the right. They had Gandi Bot, Breckenridge IPA, Two Roads Igor's Revenge, and Rogue Hazelnut on tap. Their bottle list was great and written out on a nice bar menu. 20 minute wait was 10 minutes.

The menu is decently sized with appetizers, a few pasta options, and pre-made pizza options. They use stone ground while wheat from Naples and as many local ingredients as they can. Everything is done from scratch and the pizzas were prepared quickly. I went wih sweet Italian sausage, red onions, basil, and mozerella on a red pizza. The crust was soft, a touch doughy, and had a great crunch in spots.

I paired it with a fresh Gandhi Bot - two weeks old.

Price was 13 for the pizza.

Service was excellent.

This is a great spot for a tasty 12in pie, some apps, a beer, or a dessert. My wife and I enjoyed it!

I have been coming to Stanziato's for a couple years now and it has easily become my favorite place in Danbury. The food, the atmosphere and most importantly, the beer, is spot on. I have become close with the owner and it's hard to walk in there and not get into a long conversation with him about beer. He's very passionate about his restaurant and about cooking and as long as that remains, there's no doubt that Stanziato's will continue to succeed. I strongly suggest stopping by if you are ever in the Danbury area or over the border in NY, it's about 15 minutes away. I can promise you it too will become one of your favorite places to visit.
