Great family restaurant for Italian with a Greek flair. Huge portions leaving enough to take hope for another meal. Reasonably priced.

Love the staff and the pizza is the best in Newington. It is my daughter's favorite restaurant. It's a nice quiet family atmosphere.

4 of us had dinner here on January 9th. I had the chicken Francaise and had so much that I took 1/2 of it home. The other gals had meatballs, veal park and a burger. Again, large portions. Our waitress was terrific and despite being a very cold evening the restaurant was warm and cozy. This is a great family... More

We live in Newington and every time we have driven by my husband comments he wants to try it. After a 4:00pm move at Bow Tie theater in Hartford, we gave it a try on the way home. The calamari was great, veal Marsala perfectly done. Homemade pea soup that was delicious. My husband had stuffed scallops that were perfect.... More

My husband and I just stopped here for a quick afternoon date and we absolutely LOVED the pizza. We are always on the lookout for Greek style pizza as we think it's the best kind on the planet! This is one of our new favorites :)

We love Yannis, period. Been going there for years and the food is fantastic, pizza is the best in town (in our opinion). The owner, Johnny, is a great guy, and the staff there treats us like royalty. Place is packed on Friday and Saturday with all the locals heading out to dinner there, and the take out orders are...

I have been going to Yannis for years...never had a bad experience. I find their portions to be large enough for 2 to share and their menu options are good. They do get very packed on weekends and unfortunately they do not accept reservations. Well worth the wait.
