Modern Apizza is a shining gem in the New Haven pizza world! Friendly waitstaff offer great service with ease in a classic family friendly atmosphere. The pizza is truly the star here! Crisp thin crust covered in your choice of toppings and hot melted cheese... My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Lines of people waiting for tables can... More

Been eating pizza there since my son was a dishwasher there. This was l986 and he was on his way to college. Eat there at least once a week unless out of town on vacation. Best tasting is to order your pizza BURNED, Also never use a knife and fork on it. And while there don't even think about looking... More

We went there - 2 families including very young children. Food for kids came out quickly as we requested, servers did not mind our kids being around them in the restaurant (although they were closely supervised by us) Pizza's were delicious !!! Service was excellent, efficient, friendly and very impressive Thank you !! Great job

This place is great. The space is old, classic, simple... nice booths. Great service from friendly wait staff. The pizzas are fantastic. Like the simple caesar salad... prices reasonable. Check out the huge ovens they have that accomodate 12 pies in the "small" one and something like 18 in the larger one in the back. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We saw this place on Man vs food and during our recent road trip, we decided to stop in. Well worth the stop!!! Small Italian bomb and 2 beers...less than $30. The italian bomb had sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, onions and BACON! The crust was pretty great as well. Service was good and we'll definitely stop in again next road... More

If you like thin crust pizza with a bit of oven-baked char, this place is for you! The slurpiness of its sausage and mushroom pizza and the white clam complete with lemon wedges will send your taste buds into a happy dance! If you're ever even passing through new haven, stop by and grab a pie- even if you save... More

If you've never had New Haven pizza, you haven't lived. There are three of the best pizza parlors in the country all within just a mile or so of each other. Pepe's and Sally's are both on Wooster Street, New Haven's version of Little Italy. A great place to eat dinner, then follow it with an italian ice or pastry... More

What can I say? Modern remains a terrific example of pizza done right. I moved away from the area about 15 years ago and finally had a chance to go back. First thing on my mind... apizza. And, for years I've told my wife how great it is since she's never had it before. Well, by time we left she... More
