Had dinner with 3 gals I have known since high school. Everyone was so pleased with their meal. I had a SMALL antipasto salad and had to take 1/2 of it home! One gal got a salad with chicken on the top and the other two gals ordered the chicken melanaise and the other the chicken Francese. (Spelling???). Both gals... More

We love Yannis, period. Been going there for years and the food is fantastic, pizza is the best in town (in our opinion). The owner, Johnny, is a great guy, and the staff there treats us like royalty. Place is packed on Friday and Saturday with all the locals heading out to dinner there, and the take out orders are...

I have been going to Yannis for years...never had a bad experience. I find their portions to be large enough for 2 to share and their menu options are good. They do get very packed on weekends and unfortunately they do not accept reservations. Well worth the wait.

I like Yanni's for a place to meet friends occasionally, but as a go-to always, no. They have a great menu, but not much for a vegetarian.

I moved to Newington in 2014 and have been a faithful weekly Yanni's customer since! Last year I moved to the South side of town and will drive to the North End for Yanni's rather than the pizza joints around me. One thing I learned, when ordering the pizza for take out, if the say it'll be ready in 20... More

Yanni started this restaurant following in his parents footsteps when the owned Paradise Pizza in New Britain. He certainly hasn't disappointed them or their following. The quality of the pizza ingredients is excellent and the toppings plentiful The dinner portions are great as well, as evidenced by the number of "leftovers" taken away by many happy guests. It's a little... More

I've been here about a dozen times and while I think the food is good (which is the only reason I've set myself up for continuous disappointment) I've finally reached my end. The service from this uncaring, unapologetic staff is beyond the pale. At least half of my visits have resulted in twice the wait time as estimated with the... More
