My All-time Favorite Pizza Place

I am really fussy about my pizza, and am never, ever disappointed here. Pies are always consistent - crust is always tasty and cooked just the way I want it (not paper thin, and really cooked well). Being the Italian daughter, I'm really picky about my meatballs; this is the only place I order... read more

Their pizza truck was just at our office building and I had a very good slice of tomato and basil pizza. I think $4.50 for a slice of pizza is pretty expensive, but once in a while it's a nice treat! Will enjoy it again if they come back.

Family was in the mood for pizza called and placed order for pickup on the way home from work. Pizza was ready on time and the staff was friendly. The pizza was extremely good and I can see the top ratings that Zuppardi's.

Pizza at Zuppardi's is the real deal. A great crust, perfect sauce and always the right amount of cheese and toppings. We order here from time to time and are always impressed. Try the bacon and onion pie--our favorite. Yes, it's expensive but it's worth it. Is the counter staff friendly? Maybe not so much but you can see they... More

Ver good pizza. Not the best in the world. Among the top in CT. Very fresh and well balanced pizza. The place specializes in pizza and really only serves pizza. The charm is in the restaurant and the aura, but some of the servers really struggle. Would return for the food if driving by on 95...

I don't live far from Zuppardi's Apizza but I won't give them any more business. Their pizza is very pricey and not worth it. There are many other pizza restaurants in the area with much more reasonable prices and with full Italian dinner menus -- and yes, with very good pizza, as good or better than Zuppardi's, especially when you're...

This place doesn't look like much. Older wooden tables and chairs and booths. Really only sells pizza, salad and soup sometimes. It is a traditional thin crust pizza with great flavor. They tend to burn it just enough. So that's why I said it is for a specific kind of pizza lover. Staff is not overly friendly but are efficient.... More

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... 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
