Ordered 3 large specialty pizzas. The Tomato Pie, and broccoli pies were ""so-so"".\r\nThe Bianca wasn't worth a dime. We couldn't even chew it. It was hard a a rock!!!\r\n\r\nDefinitely not going back.\r\n

Ordered Catering for 50 people via web; got confirmation email. Called 2 days prior to event to verify ""all is ok""; staff confirmed order was ok, took my credit card info....NEVER SHOWED UP! Called on day of event and was told ""sorry, order fell through the cracks."" NICE. \r\n

This is a great place to go with friends, everyone is sure to find something they like on the Menu. I have been a few times and only once did we have to wait long for a table (the girl actually messed up and forgot us, but then sent us home with extra free bread to make up for it) and the service is generally good. Don't expect the BEST pizza ( you have to go to New york for that) but overall a good choice.

Pros: good food, friendly place

Cons: parking can be a pain, may have to wait on friday/ sat nights

First & Last is one of the few restaurants still left in Hartford that holds great history in its walls and still puts great food on your table. Generally inexpensive (especially for the many college students living in that area), great atmosphere, great service, and always funominal food (ie. Neopolitan pizza and Antipasto). It's a small restaurant that stands just in front of Goodwin Park. Old pictures of the city of Hartford and famous faces that have walked into the establishment cover the walls, and beautiful built-in wooden booths and old Italian restauant feel are inviting. It's small, so if you have a large party make a reservation. If you come on the weekend be prepared to wait, and parking is fairly limited so look on the streets or across the way at their newly built bakery.

Pros: Food, Atmosphere, Service

Cons: Parking

A native and current resident of Hartford, I can honestly say that the First and Last tavern is truly one of the best restaurants around. I live about 1/8 of a mile away and on hot days when there is a gentle breeze you can literally smell the garlic up the street! A must try for all....

Whatever the reviewers have written down here is not true. Food is expensive, ambience is poor, parking is a battle, service is slow.

The First and Last, especially the original restaurant in Hartford, has the best Eggplant Pizza in CT! I believe it's the layer of Riccotta cheese that is under the eggplant that makes it so special! I've had eggplant pizza at another restaurant and it was aweful! The First and Last is the BEST!

My favorite pizza...anywhere. It would be better if less people new how good it is, because sometimes it is difficult to get in.

I love First and Last Tavern. They have the best food all around but the pizza is extremely delicious. I have never tasted pizza that good before. Maybe it's because that was my first date with the same guy I'm with for 3 yrs now. Who knows, all I know is that I wouldn't have pizza anywhere else!

Pros: Decent Price, Good Parking, Friendly Staff

thin crust, cornmeal base - not for the lover of median firm crunchy crust. This pizza more whimpy and requires 2 hands to hold the slice so toppings don't slide off.

Editorial from

This family-run restaurant has been turning out brick oven pizzas since 1936---and it hasn't changed the recipe for its first-rate, robust tomato sauce and meatballs since it first opened either. Prices, too, seem to be stuck in a former…
