Top 3 in New Haven

I'm addicted to New Haven pizza. I live nearly a thousand miles away, but can't drive through the city without stopping for some pizza. Personally, I prefer Pepe's and Sally's over Modern, but I was pleased to find a third option that was nearly as good as the other two. If you've already tried... read more

Yes, good pizza, but NH has many pizza places. Limited to no parking. Think parking 3 blocks away and walking there. Always busy. During peak times there is a 20 to 30 minute wait at least outside the doors. They take names and put you on the list. They have a variety of ingredients but no pineapple. Other than that... More

Best crust, best sauce, best cheese = best apizza. More consistently good than Pepe's. But be warned -- you may have to wait for it at peak meal times.

In the pantheon of New Haven pizza wars, Modern is definitely top 3. Sometimes it's my favorite, most times I prefer one of the other big names. Crust is a bit thicker than some of the others. Any of the varieties taste good when you wash it down with a bottle of Foxon Park.

Ordered the hot cherry pepper pizza, it was amazing! So freaking delicious, we have just moved to New Haven and have tried several pizza spots and Modern is probably in the top 2! Will definitely return to try more of their pies! We also had the bruschetta, very fresh and yummy! Ordered carry out, very easy to pick up and... More

This was one of the most amazing pizza ' s I have ever had. Bold flavor and crispy crust. I will be going back.

Approachable, and if you go at the right time you won't have to wait very long. Pizzas are delicious.

For a restaurant that is ranked so highly, my pizza was rather disappointing. The menu did warn that there could be a few black spots on the pizza, but mine was scarred all around with burnt spots, at places making an inch of the outside crust inedible. To the credit, the inside of the pizza was really good.

Sallys or Pepe's? Moderns. The pizza is good in Sally's but the service sucks and the atmosphere is not great. Pepe's also has excellent pizza but it's standards seem to have dropped the last few years - it's just not consistent. In particular, avoid the location in the casino. Moderns is consistent, and consistently good.

New Haven is a Mecca of awesome restaurants. If pizza is on your adgenda then this is the place for you! Thin crust-good sauce-and awesome aroma . On the downside parking is at a premium.
