Excellent pizza!

We arrived on a Monday around 3PM and there was a long line of people standing on the sidewalk. We were told it would be about a half hour wait, which proved accurate. I guess the fact that they have a line at 3PM on Monday tells you something. We had a clam pizza and a Pepe's orginal with... read more

I have been wanting to come here for 20 years since a Pepe's apprentice opened a restaurant near me in metro Detroit. It was wonderful. If you like seafood, try the white clam pizza. The sausage and pepperoni toppings were wonderful and the cheese was very flavorful.

As former CT resident our first stop on our visit home was Pepe's. NEVER Disappoints. We beat the crowd so no waiting in line. Waitress was fast and friendly. Pizza was Pepe's pizza. If you are a fan you know what that means. If you have not visited here yet, it means the best pizza anywhere. We had spring primavera... More

While waiting in line, we decided to call in our order of a fresh tomato pie. Our order was ready by the time a table would have been available. We tailgated our pizza which was outstanding . Thin, chewy, smoky crust...I've been dreaming of going back and trying the white clam pie. Next time we'll arrive before 11 and do... More

All the good rumors are true, this is an old world charm filled pizza restaurant with the freshest dough and ingredients, best service and great location, this is the place where all the others have copied but not come close to the original and best new haven pizza place

Pepe's is hands down my favorite pizza. It's salty so please stay away if you have high blood pressure. These pies typically come with a pretty thin crust which will cause you to eat more. My family and I prefer it a little fluffier so we ask for it "light baked." We always add bacon which is thick and very... More

We timed it well to eat here. We arrived ten minutes before noon in a Monday and there was no wait. We each ordered a small pizza (an original and one with peppers and onions) and both were good! This was a good stop on our quick trip through New Haven.

Pepe's Pizza is the real deal. Don't bother with the others, one day it might be cool to get a pie from both Pepe's and Sally's and have a taste off. Booths are old school, the white clam pizza is the best! Only thing I wish were different was the time to get in, get a seat, ordered, etc. only... More

We were very impressed with the history and reputation of Pepes. We were able to make our own pizza. They were amazing. The beer was great and the personal service also. We loved the atmosphere.
