My wife and I have dined here numerous times over the years including takeout. Everything in New Haven is Pepe's this or Pepe's that and the same for Sally's. Both serve a great pie, but Modern is just better. We've had nearly every type/combo from just plain to multi combo's and we never left hungry. The only only one we've... More

We were a party of 4 dining here on a recent Sat. night. One person in our party had been there before, and wanted us to try it. It was about 7:30 and the place was packed! The lot and the street were packed with cars. Maybe 20 people waiting for tables and it was about a 30 minute wait.... More

The classic red pie with mozzarella and garlic sets the standard. Thin, crisp crust, rich sauce that does not result in a soggy crust, and a hint of garlic makes this all come together. Other variations are also our family favorites including the clams casino, pies with red pepper and sausage, and pies with fresh tomato and basil. But whatever... More

I had the eggplant pizza which was large and insanely delicious. Only on-street parking in the area which was crowded but worked out. Kind of run down interior but totally worth the food.

The wife and I were in New Haven for a Dr. appointment and wanted to check out Modern Appiza since we heard a lot of good things about this place. First of all if you have never been to New Haven, its the worst city in America for parking, there is no where to park! We drove over 15 minutes... More

Modern Apizza is a traditional New Haven pizza joint that serves wood fired brick oven pizza. They have several different pizzas to choose from, and they all made my mouth water. I went with the Italian Bomb (the meats), which was a great choice. I washed it down with a Foxon Park Cola. I'd recommend Modern to anyone passing through... More

My husband and I went here on a Friday night and got some really good pizza! My husband is from NY and is a tough critic when it comes to pizza and he says this is the best pizza he has ever had! The 40 minute wait was well worth it and the service was exceptional. It was great to... More

I came to NH as a Pepe's Pizza loyalist, and then had an overwhelming suggestion from my friends in local law enforcement say that Modern was better now. (I haven't been here in years.) Well they did not lie. Modern was awesome. We stopped-in on an off night (Tues?) and didn't have to wait. The pizza is crisp and delicious.... More

There is an eternal debate. Who has the best pizza in CT? Well here is the answer! Love all of their pizza options!

Friendly, not quite as popular as Pepe's and Sally's and with awesome pizza. Only pizza that is clearly better at Pepe's is the clam with white sauce. But Modern is where most locals actually go in New Haven. The salad is nothing special and I don't like the Bomb but otherwise you can't go wrong.
