    Growing up in Meriden this was my favorite pizza place. Left town over a decade ago and still know the phone number. I don’t know my wife’s or mother’s phone number but “The Vous” will always be with me

      I grew up on coal oven pies. Nothing compares. Been a Friday night patron for years before moving out of town. These guys have nailed it! Great pie!
      Now and then I get the itch for that taste. Nowhere else will do. Still visiting, just not as often as I’d like.
      A must try. You’ll be hooked.👍🏻

        Verdolini’s and Rendezvous were the go-to places when we were dating. Many happy memories.

    I have been around the world , Naples Italy , the birthplace of modern pizza 🍕 is the best I have had , the Little Rez right here in Meriden
    My favorite pizza in the U.S ,CT has many very good ,but not as good
    As this ,Coal fire 🔥 oven, they get much hotter then wood and make a great crust A must try if passing through Meriden 👍👍

      Excellent Pizza! Best House Pizza in town by far. Very friendly people working there. It’s old school style pizza. Takes a little longer to cook but well worth the wait!

    Best pie ever. I use to have friends that would say, “Why do you go to Meriden for pizza?” Then they tasted it and would say, “Guess where we got pizza from?” DO NOT EVER CHANGE WHAT YOU DO!!!

    We have been getting pizza from Little Rendezvous since the 80’s, and there is NO better pizza in Meriden.
    I believe my opinion best pizza in Ct. bar none!!

    Best I’ve ever had! I lived in Meriden in the 80s and to this day, my mouth waters every time I think of this place. Please start shipping out of state…Yum Yum!

    I first found this fantastic pizza while living in Meriden back in 1987
    Took the long walk into the back counter to order where I met Paul. He recommended the white clam pizza with bacon. Always had it well done. To this day was the finest pizza I have EVER had.
    I ate 2 or 3 a week.
    The best of the best.
    Now live in Florida where there is no comparison to that delicious pizza.
    Happy to know the tradition of this fine establishment continues… Thank you for the memories of GREAT pizza.

    Had my boy with autism and he was a little nervous. Walking down that long dark tunnel. Went to pay and didn’t have enough money and he said it’s ok. Don’t worry about it.

    Steve….. Glad Little Rendezvous is still operating, haven’t been there in more than 15 years, but it’s good to know ya are carrying on the tradition. The absolutely best pie ever made, anywhere, as far as I can tell, including NH & Italy. Planning on a trip down to Pratt Street with some family members in December, and am really looking forward to it. Patronized your business quite often during the 1960’s through 1980’s and ALWAYS got a great abeetz, perfectly charred and consistently prepared. Friends in Meriden advise me you are doing it exactly as in the past, something an old guy like me truly can appreciate.
    Really looking forward to my visit.
