This was my first visit to New Haven. I got exposed to all the different types of places to get pizza. Now one of the cool things about New Haven is their Italian district. These pizza places have been around for almost 100 years! I...More

First trip to the original Frank Pepe's. Located off the beaten path. Small wait at lunch...no problem. Service is polite but no nonsense. One of the finest pizzas in the world. This one didn't disappoint. They do it the right way. A top ten food...More

I have been going to Pepes in New Haven for over 45 years - and it was great as usual. Actually the quality was even better than it has been in several years - just the right amount of cheese, sauce and char. In addition...More

What can I say that hasn't been said about this place. It is the real deal. Coal-fired brick oven pizza pies (or apizza to be colloquially correct) are still done the same way Frank Pepe had been doing them since back in the mid 20's....More

We were visiting New Haven and told that this was THE pizza place. We got a white clam and a sausage and pepper pizza. The clam was good but very little flavor. The sausage and pepper had no spice to it. My family really thought...More

What can you say about Pepe's that hasn't been said? This is the Mecca of New Haven (a)pizza and if you don't like it that's your loss. No, this isn't Little Caesar's but the distinctive paper-thin pie with an explosive thin crust. Tomato and mozzarella...More
