“Pizza place that inspired a movie!”

Our story begins in 1973 when the Zelepos family opened Mystic Pizza. Hard work, family effort and a "secret recipe" contributed to the long run success of Mystic Pizza. Of course, the real reason behind our success is our pizza. So addicting is Mystic Pizza that the crowds grew and grew.The day Hollywood came to town... Incredibly, Mystic Pizza caught the eye of screenwriter Amy Jones, who was summering in the area. Ms. Jones chose Mystic Pizza as the focus and setting for her story of the lives and loves of three young waitresses. The movie was filmed on location in Mystic and neighboring towns. "Mystic Pizza" was released in 1988 and was a hit, even Siskel and Ebert gave it two thumbs up! Meanwhile, back in Mystic... the little pizza shop could barely keep up the demand. Customers lined the sidewalk, waiting to taste "A Slice of Heaven." Menus and matchbooks disappeared in amazing quantities. Cars on Main Street dangerously avoided pizza fans who straddled the yellow lines angling for photos. What could we do? We answered the hungry demand and opened Mystic Pizza II in North Stonington. This shop thrives, but it still isn't enough to satisfy nationwide pizza fans...

I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by the pizza here. I thought it would simply be a novelty place, especially given the number of folks just there because it is "from that movie, right?" If you're in town, this is a legitimately good place to have a meal!

I really expected this pizza to be mediocre at best. When your restaurant inspires and shares the name of a movie starring Julia Roberts, I don't think the pizza has to be that good. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We ordered a house special, and it was quite yummy. Plus, the menu was diverse and they served locally brewed beer on the menu. The surrounding town looked very nice, as well, in case you want to walk off all that pizza. All-in-all, this was a good, reasonably priced meal.

So I went into this place thinking that it was going to be like all the other places I've seen on TV or heard about and not be great.... but I have to say that I was surprised and loved the pizza here... we just got plain cheese pizza and some fried pickles and they were both delicious.... just walking through this place was neat they have a bunch of pictures and posters from the Mystic Pizza movie plus other movies... it was really good.

It's a cool place to see just for the novelty of the movie, but honestly, the pizza is really greasy. Maybe I'm a pizza snob from NY, but I don't think that's the reason...it just wasn't very good.

Atmosphere and staff was excellent. Disappointedly, the food wasn't so great :-/. We got fried pickles, Caesar salad, spaghetti, and a pepperoni pizza and all of it (even the salad) was very bland and tasteless. Very little sauce on the pizza and spaghetti. Stopped and stayed in Mystic just to visit Mystic Pizza and was very disappointed 😩

The pizza was good and the staff is very friendly. The prices were reasonable so don't worry about breaking the bank. There is memorabilia from the movie on the wall as well as other entertainment/entertainer photos. The movie is constantly playing on loop, but you won't recognize the inside because it was shot at a different location.
