Paul's Pizza on 195 was the worst ever. Never had a crust that wasn't burnt black while the "cheese" was inedible napalm.
Was that the Greek style pizza place next to Store 24?

I recall the pizza was greasy but the subs weren't terrible. Not great, either though.

Grab a seat and be prepared to be nauseous, but wanted to share this thing that's been posted several times on r/pittsburgh in the past week (although it's from Altoona).

Village Pizza in Madison was the Greek pizza known for its terrible greasy cheese monstrosities. Similarly decent subs, though. Burned down in 2012 or so I think. Grand is in there now.

worst in Guilford right now is probably Centro. Really disappointing joint in a prime spot on the green.

I was so disappointed when Uncle Joe's went from a pretty decent thin crust to Greek. UJs was one of our post-softball game hangouts and back in the 80s-90s I would've put it in top 10 Fairfield Country. Not now.

Four perfect pies, great salad and another amazing Hen and Heifer dessert from Bufalina tonight, but this was the standout. I was and still am stuffed, but I could easily eat another one of these:

ANATRA
Smoked duck breast, blistered currants, fontina cheese, local micro greens
Had the Anatra tonight. Agreed it’s the best pie I’ve tried on the Fall Menu so far. I’ve only had duck a handful of other times, this was my favorite application of it so far.

Matt is out right now, but the pizza still holds up for the most part. Crust is a little more inconsistent from side to side than normal. But otherwise good.

I'm curious what places people consider hidden gems in CT. For me, La Scarpetta in Old Lyme is one. Thoughts?

Need to get 3 pies tonight and was thinking about trying Tipsy Tomato. @Huskybass recommends but he also commented that Mike's was better than Zuppardi's so I'm a little hesitant. Anyone else be there?

Brick and Basil in Norwich isn't the best I've had, but I was astounded by the quality they're putting out from a truck

The only pizza that I've had from Tipsy Tomato was the stuffed shrimp and it was absolutely outstanding. I can't comment on their regular offerings but that one is a certain winner.

We got 4 pies form Tipsy yesterday. Decent is how I would describe them. None outstanding. It's very thin crust so they don't travel that well. If you are in that area you'd do better at Roseland

I'm guessing the stuffed shrimp wasn't one that you got.
