I ate some great pizza here at Modern. Toppings and selection were great. Sauce was wonderful and it came out hot from the oven. I was with a group of ten and didn't have to wait more than 10-15 minutes. A minor complaint was I would have liked to have a bit more crispy crust in the center of the... More

Modern used to be our favorite new haven pizza spot. The last 3 times we went it has been so disappointing. We like our pizza cooked well done and even when we ask for it well done the bottom is light and gooey while the crust are black.

...but, there us no way that this joint is the #1 eaterie in New Haven. We especially enjoyed the clam pizza, and the server talked us into ordered get some kind of locally bottled soda pop. The pizza was good, but there are lots of good pizza joints, especially in a college town.

Modern Apizza is a close second to Frank Pepe Pizzeria over on Wooster Street. It isn't as famous, but it's nearly as good. Seating here is better and faster than Pepe's, and the staff is decidedly more pleasant as well. If you can't get in at Pepe's, you won't be disappointed if you have to eat at Modern. In fact,...

In New Haven, its all about the crust! Brick Oven, Wood Fired - a little char as proof - crispy, chewy HEAVEN! The toppings are just an added bonus. Modern Apizza is the best. Personally, I enjoy the white clam, but whatever your preferred topping, start with that brick oven, wood fired and you've got a winner. Take out or... More

I know, it is just my opinion but I have visited Modern many times over the years and they never fail to disappoint. The pizza is amazing and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that has a palate for good pizza. Hey, I am half Italian.

Modern Pizza is by far the easiest and most worthy of all the highly touted pizza places in New Haven. There might be a bit of a wait, never more than 1o minutes, but you will never see anyone behind you in line seated before you are. This is not the case with the others. The pizza is delicious and...
