I would like to see the two old men get in the kitchen and battle out who makes better pizza! NY vs NH. The war to end all pizza wars. I have eaten at both and believed that the "New York version" was best - but after eating at Pepe's this week I'm once again leaning toward New Haven! Quite... More

One of the best pizzas in the northeast. Eat the plain or sausage...delicious! If you order a to go, you skip the line and wait. Plus the dining inside is just ok so you miss nothing.

Don't mind the line and don't be afraid of the overflow room. Just get a taste of this pizza and you will find out why Frank Pepe has one of the top pizza restaurants in the world as far as I am concerned!

Have heard about Pepe's pizza for years and finally got there... Well worth the trip. Truly awesome thin-crust pizza! Service is fast and the girls are really fun!! Long waits at prime dining times, so plan accordingly. Go, you won't be disappointed!

Don't let the wait scare you away! Phenomenal pizza, and huge portions. We ordered the clam pizza and it was amazing. Definitely a must visit.

We have visited the Frank Pepe in Fairfield a number of times, but we wanted to try the original for a while. We were a large group and we ordered two tomato pies - one with pepperoni. They were great and had a chewy, crispy blackened crust with a fresh tomato tasting sauce. You could actually taste the tomatoes. The... More

Best thin pizza you can get. My kids make fun of me because I call it more of a snack pizza as I like pizza thicker than these pies. But I never complain about having it. Will alway be a welcome stop.

There are lots of superlative reviews for this place on this website and this place has been featured on lots of TV programs. Rarely does a place with so much hype turn out to be as good as the hype, but this place manages it. The white claim pie is to die for as were the other more typical pizza... More

When I received an e-mail from TA asking that I review a restaurant and then they gave me a list to pick from I laughed. And there it was, Frank Pepe's Pizza right at the top of the list of suggestions for review. Interesting I thought, that's right where it should be, at the top of the list. I should... More
