This family friendly restaurant is over the top great. We were ushered to a booth very quickly, even in the rush of the noon hour crowd. The waitress gave us immediate attention and our first course of bruschetta was brought to us in a blink of an eye. Our pizza and calzone were baked to perfection with just the right... More

The service here is always great. The pizza is very delicious. Thin crust and great toppings. I usually order the veggie bomb, which is loaded! They do have great local beer available, too :)

Starting our pizza testing here. This will be difficult to top. Ordered a large sausage/garlic and a large cheese. Both excellent. Great crust. Antipasto salad was very good. Service here was iffy at first, but we arrived close to shift end and had a server change. I would have liked more water, but was not asked. Very clean restaurant, nice... More

Modern Apizza is a shining gem in the New Haven pizza world! Friendly waitstaff offer great service with ease in a classic family friendly atmosphere. The pizza is truly the star here! Crisp thin crust covered in your choice of toppings and hot melted cheese... My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Lines of people waiting for tables can... More

Been eating pizza there since my son was a dishwasher there. This was l986 and he was on his way to college. Eat there at least once a week unless out of town on vacation. Best tasting is to order your pizza BURNED, Also never use a knife and fork on it. And while there don't even think about looking... More

We went there - 2 families including very young children. Food for kids came out quickly as we requested, servers did not mind our kids being around them in the restaurant (although they were closely supervised by us) Pizza's were delicious !!! Service was excellent, efficient, friendly and very impressive Thank you !! Great job

This place is great. The space is old, classic, simple... nice booths. Great service from friendly wait staff. The pizzas are fantastic. Like the simple caesar salad... prices reasonable. Check out the huge ovens they have that accomodate 12 pies in the "small" one and something like 18 in the larger one in the back. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We saw this place on Man vs food and during our recent road trip, we decided to stop in. Well worth the stop!!! Small Italian bomb and 2 beers...less than $30. The italian bomb had sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, onions and BACON! The crust was pretty great as well. Service was good and we'll definitely stop in again next road... More

If you like thin crust pizza with a bit of oven-baked char, this place is for you! The slurpiness of its sausage and mushroom pizza and the white clam complete with lemon wedges will send your taste buds into a happy dance! If you're ever even passing through new haven, stop by and grab a pie- even if you save... More
