I've been several times. Last time we had a large bacon and garlic pizza. This is just absolutely amazing and delish. Every human alive should experience the best of New Haven pizza.

Yes!! It was so good -- packed at 11:45 AM. when We saw the pizza we all thought it was too big to eat all. HA! all but two small pieces went. the sauce was really good- but the pizza crust was very very well made and had just the right spices etc. the little oven burned bits made it... More

Stopped for an early and did not have to wait more than about 5 minutes to be seated. Ordered a small (12") white clam pizza with bacon and a liter of diet white birch beer soda to share. Our pizza was delivered fairly quickly. Thin crust- almost too thin, with nicely charred edges. We would have preferred crispy bacon instead... More

My husband and I were taking our TSA appointment in New Haven, so we decided to take an opportunity and experience a famous Pepe's pizza on Wooster street. We were told to go outside and we will be called. The guy came out, called a couple in front of us, asked who is next... We said, the two of us,... More

If you're from New Haven county, you've already had Pepe's pizza. Located in the Historic Wooster Square section of New Haven, CT, Pepe's pizza is a long standing institution known for being the best of the best when it comes to pizza. They keep it simple - the only item on the menu other than pizza and a beverage, is... More

I visited after about a 20 year absence. Nothing has changed. The place is dingy, and could use some sprucing up. As for the pizza in this cash only establishment, overrated. Definitely not worth the long lines so often seen around the corner. The sauce was raw, I got a rash from it, the crust on one pizza was undercooked.... More

It is a must for the first time visitor. White clam pizza is very good as well as others. It is very east coast style. There is usually a wait but worth it

Had lunch here. Waited in line 45-60 minutes before being seated. My first time with New Haven pizza. Tried two pies, tomato pie with pepperoni (excellent) and a white clam pie (good). Service was excellent. Can't compare to anywhere else in New Haven, but I thought it was very good.

We try to stop here whenever we are in the New Haven vicinity for their medium 16 inch pizza with extra cheese and additional toppings. Recently, in the middle of the week in the middle of an afternoon we stopped here for our usual. There was no wait, there were parking places available in their lot and we walked in... More

Great brick oven pizza, the crust was soft and airy inside but crispy outside, how do they do it ?? Sauce had a great flavor but not overpowering. I would definitely go there again if I'm in the area!!
