The pizza at Pepe's is delicious! The pizzas are good sizes, with lots of toppings and cooked with a crispy bottom and soft crust. We got a large Original (tomato sauce and cheese), medium white clam and a small original with peppers and onions. All really good! We got to the place at 4pm on a Saturday so we only... More

We made our annual pilgrimage to Pepe's and as always, it never disappoints! If you're a meat lover, ask for "the special"!! Must eat at place when driving past on I-95!!

It's almost always busy but so worth the wait. The pizza has a delicious thin crust and the toppings are generous and well-distributed.

It's all they say it is, all it's cracked up to be. Really delicious pizza. My only quibble is they don't have pineapple on offer among the toppings! Their "small" is more like a medium to me, and their "medium" more like a large.

We heard this was the best pizza in America, so we went out of our way to get there. Service was adequate, prices were alright. The way they cook the pizza gives it a unique taste that is really good. My wife and I shared a small pizza and it was enough for lunch. The pizza was good, but in... More

Arrived about 2.30pm and got seated right away (party of 4). As with all things American the Pizzas are huge. We just about got through a medium between 2 of us. Service and choice good and definitely good value for money for the British tourist. Pizzas were tasty but perhaps not the best I've ever eaten. Would return if back... More

Thinking the portions would be smaller, we ordered two pizza for five people and ended up with two enormous pizzas the size of baking sheets. So if you're in a small group, stick to getting one pizza. Service is a little slow, but other than that the food was great.

This is my favorite pizza place in the world. Thin crust, wood fired, and done to perfection. I get mine "lite-baked" to avoid the black crispiness, and to have it a little more doughy. Best Pizza hands down.

It's a little hard to stay patient for 'the best pizza you've ever had" (as the saying goes) when you are standing around for an hour, even if you get there early on a Friday night. Luckily there were three couples in our party, because otherwise, the homeless man who had a bit too much to drink might have found... More

There was a long wait for a table on a Saturday afternoon, but not a bad wait, it was nice out and a cool place. The food was very good, very fresh and exactly what I wanted. We shared a small fresh clam pizza and a small fresh tomato pizza. I can eat a lot and this was more than... More
