Mystic Pizza

Have you ever seen the movie Mystic Pizza? If not, you should! It’s a great movie. An oldie but definitely a goodie! Not to mention it has Julia Roberts in it.

Mystic Pizza DVD Movie

Well, last week my family went down to Mystic, CT and spent the night at the Hilton Mystic for the kids spring vacation. We went into town for dinner and just had to stop for Mystic Pizza.

If you haven’t seen the movie before the menu explains it all right on the cover. It’s also a fun read if you have!

  1. Love Julia Roberts. I really need to see that movie! Mmmmm Pizza! Maybe Friday! Great pics looks like everyone was having tons of fun. Thanks for sharing & have a great day!

  2. Jen says:

    I have never seen (or heard of the movie), but what fun to go to a place featured in a movie. I would get a kick out of that!

    • Jennifer says:

      The entire movie was this place 😉

  3. It looks delish!!!

  4. Yum! That sounds like a fun trip!

  5. I had no idea this was a real place! I checked the VHS copy of this movie out of the library back in the ’90s. That whole sentence sounds so dated now, man how quickly things change, LOL!

    • Jennifer says:

      LOL, I saw it in the 90’s too!

  6. This may be the only Julia Roberts movie that I haven’t seen! I need to see if it’s on my Amazon prime so can watch it! That pizza looks so good!

  16. My hubby and I stopped there in January on our way back from NYC. It had been years since I’d been there and the pizza was just as good as I remembered.

  17. Alison says:

    I love Mystic, CT! We have driven by Mystic Pizza and never went in, maybe we should one day!

  31. How cool you actually visited a real place based on a movie. That pizza looks so good

  32. Fun! I haven’t seen the movie, but I will have to check it out now.

  33. I’ve never seen the movie but that pizza must be awesome to inspire a movie AND keep it’s reputation intact even until now!

  34. How fun! I actually haven’t seen that movie, but I love Julia Roberts.

  35. Sylvia Ortiz says:

    I really enjoyed watching the Mystic Pizza movie – how cool to know that the Pizza place is a real place to eat pizza! Hope to one day visit it and have the opportunity to taste their pizza.

  36. LOVE Julia Roberts!! So fun to visit places that are famous in movies!

  37. Sarah L says:

    Want pizza! Looks like a fun time following the steps of the movie.

  38. Beth R says:

    I love that movie 🙂 I didn’t know there was an actual restaurant! I would love to go if I am ever in the area

  39. I’ve never seen that movie before but it’s now on my to-watch list! Sounds like a cute movie to boot 🙂

    If I’m ever in the Mystic area, I’ll definitely stop in for some pizza even if I have to majorly cheat for it (I can’t have pizza due to wheat/gluten/dairy issues)!

  40. I remember watching the movie a couple times when it first came out. How cool that you got to visit the location. The pizza looks delish.

  41. I actually have not seen the movie, but I have visited Mystic, CT. Next time we’ll try the pizza (and watch the movie beforehand)!

  43. Catherine S says:

    It really is a sweet movie and it made you-know-who a star. I’ve been to Mystic on several occasions and just love Mystic Seaport.

  44. courtney b says:

    looks a little thick for me, but still yummy !:)

  45. Tammy S says:

    I love this movie! It is an oldie but definitely a goodie. It was before Julia Roberts was big time. In fact I have it on DVD. It was on sale for like $5. You have to see this movie if you haven’t. I would love to go there sometime for pizza.

  46. Anne says:

    Great lighting in your outdoor shot! Makes me want to go inside. And I’m hungry, so I’m not even going to mention the pic of the pizza! LOL

    • Jennifer says:

      I took all the photos with my iphone5 in the instagram app 🙂

  47. Sarah L says:

    1988 – Julia R. was only 21 at the time. Good start for her.

  48. Blessie Nelson says:

    Wow a movie turned pizza place? That’s nostalgic!

  49. Jenn L says:

    That is SOOOO totally cool – and that pizza looks DELICIOUS!

  50. Mimi says:

    I saw part of this movie eons ago! How fun to go there to eat! That pizza looks scrumptious!

  51. It’s been forever since I’ve seen that movie. I loved it at the time!

  52. Betsy Barnes says:

    That was a good movie, had no idea there was a real Mystic pizza 🙂

  53. Sarah L says:

    I’d love to travel to where they filmed Safe Haven.

  54. sandy weinstein says:

    have seen this movie several times….what is strange to me is how the stars in the movie have changed so much as they got older…..(their looks, etc)…..good ole movie….however, i am not a pizza eater….

  55. Jen Gonyer says:

    Love the movie! Haven’t seen it in a long time, but now I feel like watching it. And, now I need to try the pizza. I honestly didn’t realize that there was a Mystic Pizza in CT. Now I know where I need to eat next time I’m in CT!

  56. Now that looks like a yummy pizza! I want a slice!

  57. Maria Iemma says:

    I’ve never seen the movie – looks like a good watch. How young Julia Roberts looks. I am hungry for Pizza now.

  58. Sarah L says:

    This post makes me hungry for pizza but it’s not on my diet.

  59. s riches says:

    I have never been to Mystic but I loved the movie.

  60. Tiffany Schmidt says:

    I love that movie! SO cool that you visited. It’s even better that the pizza is worth it. I love visiting restaurants featured in movies.
