We stopped into Finellis while driving through Ellsworth. The pizza is a bit too thin to be truly characterized as "NY style," despite their promoting it as such. But the taste was good, pricing extremely reasonable and staff could not have been more friendly.

The pizza is thin crust, cheesy, and saucy, but a bit oily. I've been here four times, and it has always been a very good experience—the best when my son and I had a large pie made for us. Otherwise, the already-made slices in the...More
