AWESOME PIZZA

As a lifelong New Yorker --I was so surprised how superior the pizza was here. The crust is perfect. We had a clam casino pizza - crispy bacon, clams and peppers and onions.

Service was great but there is not much to be said for the hyped up pie. I had the Clams Casino pizza which should have been called bacon pizza because there were little to no clams. It was tasteless. Hardly any garlic, needed salt and seasoning. Edges were burnt yet center was uncooked and soggy. My Partner had a red... More

This has to be one of the best pizza restaurants in the New Haven, CT area. I had a veggie bomb tonight and it was absolutely delicious. I over ate because I enjoyed it very much. I recommend this place to everyone.

As a long-time New Haven resident, I know that Modern Apizza is delicious and probably less well known than the places on Wooster St. It is a favorite among the locals in a town famous for its Naples style pizza. Try the sausage mozzarella pie. Larry Hall

Modern has a family friendly atmosphere. Pizza made just right... Thin crust, fresh toppings, and just the right amount of mozzarella. Enjoy! We always do.

The Modern Apizza has been in rarefied air since New Haven became known as a must visit city if you really love pizza. In New Haven you will find many different pie places, all have earned their own distinct pedigree for serving up the pizza we all know and crave. I must admit that I have tried mostly all the...

This place is the real deal, as good as it gets for pizza. The mozzarella red pie is the standard to beat, but the white clam and eggplant are my next favorites. I try to time my visits for the minimum of time spent in line, but even long lines generally move pretty fast here. For new visitors: you just... More

Thought to myself, can't be that busy with a near-blizzard going on, would be a good place to stop and grab dinner on the way home from work. To my surprise, place was packed and no parking to be found anywhere. Ended up parking in semi-legit space for the few minutes I needed to hop in and pay for the... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Modern. A few things made it special. First, it's good to have a waiting area. Second, our "veggie bomb" pizza was delicious. It was, of course, loaded with veggies and also had a wonderful crisp crust. We ordered a large, which was enough for the two of us to get two more meals out... More

Yesterday I flew myself in to New Haven to eat pizza and tour the Yale campus for the first time. The desk agent at the FBO suggested Modern Pizza as the best. He was right. Delicious, chewy crust on my margerita pizza. Happy and friendly service too. I've added this to my 'return-to-do' list. Yum yum. Capt Bob Boston
