I had heard many good things about this place. So i decided to go and try it out. the food was a bit on the pricey side for pizza but it was well worth it. They have a special with 2 slices and a pint for 7$ or 8$ depending on your draft pick. The sandwiches were amazing and the beer choice was incredible. 10 choices on draft and a few more in bottle. i believe they have undergone new management over the past 2 years and i see roughly the same faces when i go in there so they must be doing something right. There beer choices stay up to date too, but not to repetitive with the same stuff.

I visited Finelli's Pizza after reading the good reviews, I was very disappointed. They had a deal 2 slices of pizza with a brew for $7, not a bad deal. The pizza was sub-par in my mind. The beer was nothing to special for the area of Maine. Local offerings from Shipyard Export, Old Thumper ESA, Sam Adams Boston Lager, SA Octoberfest and some BMC beers but nothing special. Sebago Frye's Leap India Pale Ale was the best beer available. Some bottles in a cooler included Fosters, Sam Smith. I would probably not stop back again.
