Waited in line for almost an hour before we left. We went there knowing the wait would be long, but the indifference from the staff/owner is unbelievable. Apparently they do not take reservations, but people were showing up and being seated immediately. No apologies, no "we are sorry for the wait", nothing! This seems to be a New Haven mentality...

It seems that Frank Pepe's has won the battle of the reviewers, and, on a quiet weekday night, it resulted in a thirty minute waiting line. Just down the street, at Sally's Apizza (it's "apizza" in Anew Haven") it was "sit whereva' you like." Sally's is an unpretentious neighborhood place that lookes little changed since the 1950s. And why change?... More

i've been going to Sally's since I was 5 and my Dad would take me in the back to look at the pizza oven. Sally's pizza became one of my comfort foods. Was there this past Saturday and I can say Sal and Flo are looking down and proud that the pizza is still as awesome as it ever was.... More

It has always been close competition between Sally's and Pepe's Pizza. As a New Yorker, I never thought that anything would ever come close until I moved to New Haven where I have found the best pizza by far that anyone could ever ask for. In addition to the above mentioned places, Modern Apizza is another fantastic place to enjoy... More

We walked right in, sat down and instantly the waiter was there getting our drinks, handing out menus. A couple of minutes later, we ordered and foolishly thought we'd get our food in a reasonable amount of time - Wrong. We waited and waited and waited. No other contact from server until just before the pizza came out an hour... More

The atmosphere is a bit exclusive at sally's. Intimate, wood paneling, and jumbled photos on the walls of the narrow joint on Wooster Street. The fresh mozz with tomato basil - by far best pizza i've ever had. better than peep's. yes i said it.

Born and raised in New Haven I return periodically. I would never miss an opportunity to indulge in my favorite "ah-beets" (New Haven-speak for pizza). I have even made my Brooklyn-born hubby a fan. Although Sally's neighbor, Frank Pepe's has been has been rated #1 consistently in both the N.H. and US pizza wars, both my husband and I agree... More

Sally on Wooster St, New Haven has great pizza. Frank Sinatra among other celebrities have eaten there. The only thing is the owner pass away and it was being sold with their recipe. Must check by to see if they updated the place inside.

This pizza place located in (very) Little Italy in New Haven or rather Wooster Street. Sally and Pepe's are the two restaurants in New Haven battling for the best pizza in the country. Be prepared to stand in line getting in to the restaurant for an hour and then wait for 90 minutes once you get your table. The restaurant... More

We've been in New Haven for the last month, eating at both Pepe's and Sally's. I have to say, the famous pizza war is over. It wasn't too busy yet, so we were seated right away at Sally's, but only after we'd ordered were we told that it would be a 45-minute wait. 90 minutes later we got our pizza.... More
