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

I hadn't had pizza in over 2 months so I had high expectations. No being a fan of the overly garlic laden Pepe's sauce I was looking forward to trying Modern's. I was not disappointed. My other 2 guests had pies with meat, spicy red peppers and other yummy toppings. I went for a classic white pie with fresh tomato's... More

OK, that's a fine pizza at a fair price and decent service, but there was nothing really extraordinary about it. I thought the dough was too crisp (a bit burned on the edges actually) and toppings were good. The place was packed so it is definitely a hot spot in New Haven.

Modern is my go to pizza place. It's a typical New Haven pizza place. Great pie with many different varieties to offer. Service is quick. Be prepared to wait for a table on the weekends. It's all part of the experience. You won't be disappointed.

I never ever thought I could write a bad review about Modern. I have been going there for close to 30 years and have never had a bad pizza there. Normally when my husband and I go there we do not even need a menu since we always order the "bomb". It has a little of everything. Meat and veggies.... More

Thin crust, coal or wood fired oven, and the perfect balance of sauce and cheese to crust. Simple as that. Did a little survey, of locals, during a stay at YNHH, and about 80% said Modern has the best Pizza in town. In my opinion, they were correct. Simply the best!

For a large family gathering, we ordered a wide selection of about ten pizzas to go. All were excellent and arrived hot & tasty. Everyone was satisfied, both the vegans and the omnivores. And the pizzas (the two that were left) were equally wonderful the following morning. You won't go wrong at Modern.

This is the pizza my husband loves. I like it but he loves it. Recently they have drastically improved their salads, very good now. My daughter loves the calzone with meatballs. Best to go between normal meal times to get a table. Long lines form outside waiting for a yummy pie.

Wife and I ordered two small pies. The undersides were completely black, not dark but burnt black. Left in the oven too long. Waiter told us to send them back but we decided to go elsewhere. First and last visit and we're local!
