Mystic Pizza is a real pizza parlor, located at 55 West Main St. in Mystic, Connecticut. Writer Amy Holden Jones was vacationing in Mystic one summer, saw the pizza parlor and was inspired to write the story. After the movie came out, the real Mystic Pizza shop became so popular, lines would stretch to the sidewalk and patrons would regularly steal mementos from the restaurant.

Liam Neeson, who had co-starred with Julia Roberts whilst making Satisfaction (1988), visited the set of this picture. The pair had allegedly had a personal relationship on that earlier movie. Roberts then allegedly started seeing one of the grips whilst filming Mystic Pizza (1988).
