      With a Pepe's in New Haven and one at Mohegan Sun there is no need form more pizza joints in SE Connecticut.

      Rumor has it the owner is trying to reinvent the restaurant. This is probably true as there is no sign indicating an application for a new permitee for the liquor license.

          I agree- Stella was always good but failed to adjust prices to the economy
