“Authentic Italian Pizza!”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

Hands down real authentic Italian pizza. They make their dough from scratch and use real, authentic ingredients just like they do in Italy. Even the pizza types are authentic Italian recipes. My husband had the 'Bufalina' pizza with buffalo mozzarella and added bacon to it. I had the 'Melanzane' - what set this pizza apart from others I've had is that the eggplant was roasted first in the brick oven and not breaded like so many imitation pizza places here. We loved the intimate atmosphere at the counter - the wait staff was really friendly and were able to answer all of our questions about the oven and ingredients. Matt and Melissa have created a gem and you can be sure I will tell everyone I know that if they want REAL Italian pizza, this is the only place to get it! Well done!

“Really Good Pizza, but some issues”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

Bufalina is housed in a tiny red building on the Post Road. If you want to eat inside, be aware that the seating is very limited- there is a small bar with stools, and a couple of small window seats. We elected to do take out. Our pizza contained mozzarella, sausage, scamorza, basil, and tomatoes. It had a pronounced wood-baked taste and thin, very crispy crust. It was a delicious pizza, with quality ingredients, and very flavorful. But the pizzas are offered in only one size- and that size proved to be just too small to adequately feed two of us for dinner. Also, the restaurant is open limited hours. Still, their pizza is worth a try.
