I had the privilege of growing up in the middle of what I consider America's best pizza corridor, stretching from New York City to New Haven, Connecticut. To me, Frank Pepe's has always represented the quintessential pizza in America. Thin, crisp brick-oven crust and uncommonly fresh ingredients have consistently made this institution a standout. Over the past several years Pepe's... More

Little bit of a wait to get seated. Also had to wait a while before meal served. Pizza was good though.

Service was good, food was great, maybe they will expand menu a bit? Our party will return for sure!

Pepe's Pizza opened a restaurant in the Buckland Hill mall area a few years ago - but it's a long tradition in New Haven, where the original restaurant is still run by family. Some people don't like the very thin crust a bit "chared" in the bottom - but others say it's traditional and drove about an hour to New... More

Pepe's might be the most famous pizza chain in Connecticut and constantly receives rave reviews. I have never understood the reviews, and the best way I can describe the pizza is a soupy mess. Recently some out of town visitors wanted me to get take-out so I gave Pepe's another try. Nothing has really changed except the pricing is more... More

The original tomato pie is something I have never tried and now, being a lover of tomatoes, it is a favorite!!! We also had a pizza with lots of veggies and it was delicious, too!

That crust ! If you like thin pizza, you're gonna like Pepe's. It's convenient in that you don't have to travel all the way to New Haven to experience one of the best pizzas around. You'll enjoy this pizza in a simple but clean dining area.

A New England institution. Yep - that's right, Frank Pepe's is a must go-to Connecticut pizzeria. They have multiple locations around the Tri-State area - but the New Haven location remains the flagship. The White Clam is unique and surprisingly delicious. The "regular" pies come Naples style with very thin oven baked crusts and scant toppings. They are light and... More
