Long waiting time. Difficult parking. Excellent service once you are seated. The Italian Bomb is fabulous pizza. One of New Haven's best pizza restaurants.

This place is great. It's on state Street and has street parking. The pizza is a close second to Pepe's. Worth a trip if you are in the area.

Modern is one of the original Neapolitan pizza joint in New Haven. While Pepe's is most popular and a great place, Modern is for people who really know New Haven pizza and has fewer lines - still hard to get into during the busy times. Amazing Margarita pie.

People come from all over the country for New Haven Pizza, and Modern is one of the best. I didn't give it 5 stars, only because I am not a huge fan of real thin pizza, I think it's a bit greasy, and I prefer greek style, but everyone I know raves about Modern.

I go here all the time, it is the best. Don't get spinach or clam though - every other pie I have had is spot on. And as a bonus they have a rotating selection of great beer by the pitcher.

Our family has loved Modern for years, over all the other great pizza places In New Haven. The crust is the best! You can get take out that will disappear as soon as you get it home. My son invented a white pie: bacon, broccoli and mozzarella, that the gladly put together and is delicious! Their eggplant pie is outstanding!... More
