It's not pizza... It's Pepe's!

Pepe's Pizza - New Haven CT - 3/3/2015 I have been going to Pepe's Pizza for about seven years now. Why?, because since 1925 they have been turning out the best pizzas anywhere. I remember reading in USA Today some time back that they were rated the #1pizza I. TheUSA and it's no wonder why. When... read more

Incredible pizza, unique and flavorful with a wonderful thin crust baked in a traditional wood fired oven. Marvelous Italian drinks accompany the wonderful food. Magnifico!

I had heard of Pepe's for years. We arrived for our meal at 3:45 pm. And yes, there was a line BUT it was worth the hour wait. It is a must when in New Haven.

If your home country is Italy, this is unfortunately the best that you can get around New Haven. The dough (pasta base) is good, but the ingredients are not as tasty as they should be (tomato and mozzarella). With more adds-on it gets much better! In any case probably the best pizza in town. Still not Italian at all. Classic... More

I know people tend to rave about the pizza but I just don't get it. There are lines it is not a nice atmosphere. The pizza crust is a thicker than New York style. The service is dinner level. Just nothing I can see to recommend. Yet people in CT think it is an ICON. To me every pizza place... More

It's charming, Italian, outdated & authentic - a place not to miss. The pizza amazing- the experience one that cannot be replicated especially after 90 years of trade. Be prepared to wait - it's orderly & moves quickly. The team delivered great service with a smile & the Italian hospitality. Enjoy!!!

The unique pizza was well worth the wait. It tasted just as good as the reputation of the place claimed and was quite different than the usual pizza you get around every corner in NYC.
