I have not been to this location in a while. The remodel is fantastic. The restaurant and bathroom was clean. The service was efficient and helpful. I loved the buffalo wrap. It was delicious! I am looking forward to eating here again.

I never thought I would be writing a review about a pizza place that was as good as Modern Pizza in New Haven. I am now. The pizza ingredients are top quality. It is obviously baked at a very high temperature which imparts a delicious...More
