Best Pizza in West Haven

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... read 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

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.
