As a long-time New Haven resident, I know that Modern Apizza is delicious and probably less well known than the places on Wooster St. It is a favorite among the locals in a town famous for its Naples style pizza. Try the sausage mozzarella pie. Larry Hall

Modern has a family friendly atmosphere. Pizza made just right... Thin crust, fresh toppings, and just the right amount of mozzarella. Enjoy! We always do.

The Modern Apizza has been in rarefied air since New Haven became known as a must visit city if you really love pizza. In New Haven you will find many different pie places, all have earned their own distinct pedigree for serving up the pizza we all know and crave. I must admit that I have tried mostly all the...

This place is the real deal, as good as it gets for pizza. The mozzarella red pie is the standard to beat, but the white clam and eggplant are my next favorites. I try to time my visits for the minimum of time spent in line, but even long lines generally move pretty fast here. For new visitors: you just... More

Thought to myself, can't be that busy with a near-blizzard going on, would be a good place to stop and grab dinner on the way home from work. To my surprise, place was packed and no parking to be found anywhere. Ended up parking in semi-legit space for the few minutes I needed to hop in and pay for the... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Modern. A few things made it special. First, it's good to have a waiting area. Second, our "veggie bomb" pizza was delicious. It was, of course, loaded with veggies and also had a wonderful crisp crust. We ordered a large, which was enough for the two of us to get two more meals out... More

Yesterday I flew myself in to New Haven to eat pizza and tour the Yale campus for the first time. The desk agent at the FBO suggested Modern Pizza as the best. He was right. Delicious, chewy crust on my margerita pizza. Happy and friendly service too. I've added this to my 'return-to-do' list. Yum yum. Capt Bob Boston

What's there to say? Modern is pizza done the way pizza should be. Which is why you always have to wait for a table. The ambience is very much the same as it was when it opened, I imagine, as it still looks very 70's. Not fancy, but the food is amazing. This is REAL pizza - the kind you... More

This is an institution in New Haven. The place was always packed. There was always waiting of about 20 to 45 min.. The waiting area was small and cozy considering it was insanely cold outside the warm area was a welcomed break. We ordered a pepperoni pizza. The pizza was awesome... There was a well seasoned tomatoes sauce.. After hearing... More

Drove an hour in from Mystic, CT and met up with the cousins to try some "famous" pizza. I ordered a large with bacon, mushroom, and onion and holy smokes was this pizza large. It easily fed two grown men with enough left over for a lunch (and then some). Real sliced chunks of bacon were used, fresh onions, and... More
