I found a place that surpassed my previous #1 pizza joint! I'm a little bum it's 30 minutes from home & has a tight parking space but it was worth the drive. I ate pickled hot cherry pepper pizza which tasted out of this world!

These pies are the real deal! The crust has an excellent "crumb" to it. Clearly their oven and crust recipe come together perfectly. The freshest and best toppings make a huge difference too.

I'm not an enthusiast of this place. Even if I like the dough, the top is always super greasy. The staff is slow. Huge lines for no reason.

Combinations of toppings was awesome! I had the clams casino pizza with white sauce on a gluten free crust. Pizza was great. Only reason for 4 stars is server was a bit on the slow side. I'd go back in a heartbeat though.

The pizza was amazing and we only got the cheese! The tomato sauce was the best part and the crust was perfect as well. Service was lacking but I'll let it slide because of the food!

The new haven Pizza rivalry is one that will never end or be settled. I am a fan of Pepe’s, but have found much more constant quality at Modern. The pizza is perfectly cooked every time. They have a great variety of toppings and the tables turn pretty quick. Plan to wait if you go after 5pm most nights, but... More

Worth circling the block, squeezed parking and lines out the door. Comfortable seating, amazing pizza and fast wait staff. So good. New Haven style pizza at its best.
