Best Pizza in New Haven

Went after work to try Modern Apizza with several friends and was very impressed. I am not from the New Haven area and people have always told me how good the place is so I had to check it out. The dining room has two rooms and we were in the second room. The staff was very polite and helpful... read more

I was unimpressed. We came for the vegetarian pie. Maybe it was my foodie palate, but I was completely unimpressed by how loaded the pizza was. It was almost impossible to eat and soggy. The place was mobbed, which spoke to its popularity. People do enjoy Modern, it's just not my fave.

Modern Apizza is the best New Haven pizza available without a long line !!! It is excellent quality, rivaling Pepe's and Sally's, without the wait. I have been a fan for 30 years.

This is my favorite pizza place in New Haven, and I've tried them all. While there is often a line in the evening, it tends to move quickly. There are plenty of seats and the service is reasonably good. The pizza is fabulous. We take all of our out of town guests here. A favorite is white clam!

The Pizza was delicious. We were going to go to Pepe's, but a friend recommended Modern instead. The service was wonderful and the pizza arrived quickly. There was a wait as it was a Saturday night before a hockey game at Yale, but it was not too bad. It did seem that the system of taking and calling names was... More

Good pizza!!!!! good service also, quick! Pizza is thin crust, so if you like it thick, don't. Veggie pizza is great!

We live about 40 minutes from downtown New Haven, but make it a point to go to Modern Apizza every time we are in the area. In fact, we will arrange appointments around lunch time so we can stop by for pizza. There is quite a rivalry between great classic pizza in New Haven and we believe Modern is the... More

Modern Pizza is my absolute favorite. New Haven is all about pizza and I've been to all of the wonderful many pizza "places". Modern pizza has great service and they make people feel welcome unlike a couple of other local places that act like they are doing you a favor by letting you in the door. The pizza has great...

I've been a customer for 30+ years and the pizza is consistently good. My favorite is eggplant, even though I don't usually eat eggplant.

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 melts in your mouth.... More
