Carmine's Shelton CT anyone have the inside scoop?

Been watching this place being built for awhile now and it look like they are close to opening. They had to spend a fortune on remodeling the old DiMauro's Dairy Bar. It doesn't look anything like the old place. Sign out front says wood fired oven in Italian. Anyone have the inside scoop about this place? Thanks, Richie

      There's a "Now Hiring" sign in the window, for what that's worth. I'll probably be driving by there this evening, so will see if it looks open yet.

    2. I just drove thru there, yesterday. Is it small? Is it just pizza, or can you tell?

      1. I have no clue. The sgn outside says Brick Oven Pizza in Italian. I am thinking it will be just another family run Italian restaurant.

        1. Drove by there 6-ish tonight, and it didn't look open for business.

          1. Carmine's is owned by the guy who used to (but sold) "The Brick Oven" restaurant in bridgeport on capitol ave - near the brooklawn country club.

            The food there was great, looking forward to trying this place - hoping the style of food and their pizza especially is the same. I've heard it'll be opening end of June.

                that's them... been anxiously awaiting the opening of the new place for quite a while now. Tried calling today and just got a machine.. I was hoping when I heard the end of the month, it wouldn't literally be the end.

                I guess good things come to those who wait. (but I'm so hungry) :)

                  I called and got an answer a couple days ago. Not open yet, said they are figuring they'll be opening around the 2nd week of July now.
