Old Time Charm & Taste

Not only do I enjoy one of the best "APIZZAS" made in New Haven, I also recall loving memories of go there to eat with my mom and dad. On Saturday nights my dad's family would come over our apartment in the Franklin St. Projects to play 'penny poker.' Around 10:00 p.m. they would order pies from... read more

There are two places to go for pizza in New Have, Pepe and Bar Pizza. Both are fantastic. Beware, you will need to wait at Pepe so either go at a time that isn't at the peak of dinner or do and have fun waiting outside in line. We didn't mind. There are two buildings for Pepe. The small one... More

My great-grandfather took my grandfather here. He took my dad here. My dad took me here. I drank my first (ahem, underage) beer here. I went on my first date here. But don't let my nostalgia factor blind you to the fact that Pepe's is what pizza should be. It is bar none the finest pizza, certainly in the US,... More

In the land of pizza joints Pepe's is one of the best in New Haven and the world! Their white clam pizza is the original McCoy and unbelievable taste. Everyone needs to try this pie once!

I enjoyed eating here. The crust is nice and pretty thin, and the roasted peppers were a good topping. I actually ate so much that my stomach hurt a lot afterwards.

The pizza is excellent. The pies are very large so order a size smaller than normal. The pizza is so good that there is a line out the door however, it is definitely worth the wait.

It may be an acquired taste and the lines may be long but there is a reason the lines are long. Pepe's is an icon for good reason. The crust is thin, the sauce is the right consistency and balance, and the toppings are always specific, not bland. Great, great spot and always worth the weight. My favorite is the... More

No lie the first bite changed my live. I had never had pizza with that favor or texture before. I live in Denver but my wife grew up about 45 minutes from Pepe's and when we visited her family several years ago in Connecticut they took me there. Since then I have been on a pizza journey...searching out the best... More
