Best Pizza in the city

Forget the hype the other apizza places get in New Haven. Modern is by far the best for the traditional Napolitano apizza in New Haven. Thin and crispy made the old fashion way by people who know what they are doing. No assembly line here. The other entrees are great too! Try the eggplant parm it... read more

5 stars you ask? Best in New Haven you ask? Yes its true! Often regarded as in the "Top Three" in New Haven, Modern wins for not only its great taste, but also for the quick and friendly service.This last trip was the first time an "extra" pie made it all the way home to Maryland without me stopping along...

Great pizza, nice crispy crust, sauce was very tasteful an overall great experience in a time where "Pizza Chains" are becoming more competitive.

The best pizza, eat in or take out without the hoopla and long lines of Wooster Square. Great selection, perfect crust, super toppings. Who could ask for more?

New Haven is known for its pizza and even the mediocre pies are better than the best of most other places. But Modern is the 'best of the best'. Worth the wait on a weekend night to get in!

I have been coming to Modern for the last 25 years and have never been disappointed. The pizza is consistently excellent, and the wait times, service, and overall atmosphere are notably better and more welcoming than the other classic brick-oven apizza places. Not too too long ago they renovated their space, making waiting more comfortable, and making the interior better.... More

First of all, the question "is this one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant" is absurd, it's f'n pizza for crimeni! It's one of the best PIZZA'S I've ever had in a restaurant but not meals. What's to say, the wait can be long if you go on a busy weekend night, and even sometimes week... More

Great service, friendly staff and delicious pizza!! We have gone to Pepe's for the longest time and figured we should try somewhere new. We were able to be there during a random Wednesday around 1pm and there was no wait time, and we were instantly seated. This was definitely a delicious pizza - I am from New York and am... More

I was told that there is great pizza in New Haven and read that this place is the one to go to. There was a huge queue when we arrived for lunch on a Saturday. However things went smoothly and the service is well organised and quick. Once we got in we were served pretty quickly and efficiently. However the... More
