After driving 2 hours out of the way and waiting outside in line for 50 minutes to have what is supposed to be the best pizza ever, I wouldn't go back to Pepe's if they were giving it away. Not only did it take our horrible waitress 20 minutes to bring 2 beers to our table (and I had to... More

This pizza is disappointing, given the hype and talk about world ranking. In my view, it cannot come close to Modern in New Haven or Little Rendevous in Meriden. The crust is too thin and flimsey, which results from the use of too much oil. Also, the excess oil retains the oven heat, leading to burn-mouth even after the pizza... More

My family and I congregated at Frank Pepe's after receiving the news of a family member's passing and the pizza was worth the 10 minute wait for seating. It was piping hot and delicious.

Being from NY, it is hard to find good pizza, and this did it for me. I have gone back repeatedly and have taken my NY visitors there as well so they can try it. Awesome pizza

4 large pizzas, w/anchovies, mushrooms, pepperoni, clams n garlic toppings were very delicious and tasty that you could even eat the whole crush. The price very reasonable and the staffs are very kind and helpful. Everybody is hoping that we should get together again at Frank Pepe's Pizza Napolitana. And take note, each time ex-President Bill Clinton visits CT he... More

The restaurant was very busy. We had a fun dining experience but the pizza was just average. Wait time was approximately 20 minutes.

Pepe's is the benchmark for great pizza. It is the quintessential New Haven pizza. We have been going there for years and the quality is consistently excellent. We always compare any other pizza joint to Pepe's.
