I almost don't want to share

I have been eating at Zuppardi's for almost 20 years. It's a beloved stop off I-95 on road trips (I live 90 miles away). Spur of the moment we stopped in recently and I have to say it was better than ever. If you like thin crust- this is the best- forget Frank Pepe- this place hands down has the... read more

90 years in business with the original family still making the best pizza I have ever eaten. New Haven is known as The Nations Best Pizza Center (it features Sally's, Pepe's, Modern and now Gramaldi's of New York). Right next door in West Haven is Zuppardi's who puts them all to shame. Growing up in New Haven I feasted on... More

I have been living in West Haven, CT. over 20 years. When my daughter began school at St. Lawrence on Main Street we discovered Zuppardis or Zupps as the locals call it. This old fashioned pizza place is family owned and has been around for ages. The pizza pie is the specialty here so don't go ordering subs or calzones.... More

We have eaten at Pepes and Sallies (when you can get in. I don't believe in waiting in lines). We are fond of Modern, but hands down, Zupps is the best. The mozz and sausage is to die for. They also have craft beers on tap, adding to the experience. Not to be missed.

Might be a bit of a hole in the wall, but better than any New Haven Pizzeria. The pizza is not too thin or too thick, has fresh ingredients and is perfectly cooked.

I have had the same pizza restaurant favorites for years. Today I am not only adding Zuppardis APizza to the list but I am putting it in the top two. I will start by saying that none of my favorites are in the business of decorating and Zuppardis is no different. It's all about their pizza and I like that!... More

I grew up in Fairfield County, and around there, driving far for a good restaurant was nothing out of the norm. Had I known about Zuppardi's years ago, it would have been our family's Friday night spot FOR SURE! I have been eating at Zuppardis about a year now, but when I first tried it, I told my parents "I... More

This is a family owned and run pizza restaurant using homemade ingredients that makes some of the BEST pizza pies of all of the pizza restaurants in the entire New Haven area. It even matches the Wooster Street Pizza restaurants. They make the best sausage (homemade sausage) pizzas I have every tasted. Don't miss out - try them and you... More
