World class Pizza

Zuppardi's is a West Haven institution. There is no reason to go elsewhere for world class pizza. New Haven may get all of the attention, but the locals know that there is no better pizza anywhere. Run by the same family for over 80 years, they found the secret to great products long ago. The... read more

Best pizza I've had since frank n pepes. Mouth watering pizza! As you take a bite the cheese slowly streches off its slice then right into your mouth!!! Filling and amazing! I enjoyed the sausage pizza and after that I got the Italian ice! 10/10

At least once a month, I travel to CT to visit my friend and the first place we go is to Zuppardi's APizza for our pizza fix. It is pizza strashada as we RI Italians call it and I love it. Everyone has a different thought process as to what pizza should be, however, I am obsessed with pizza and... More

The pizza is expensive and the waitresses are rude and unfriendly. For that reason alone I would take my business elsewhere for pizza. How they get a brick oven kind of pizza from steal ovens I'll admit remains some kind of a mystery.

I was staying in West Haven and I saw that Zuppardi's was the number 1 place to eat there, so that's while I wanted to try it out. The place is a no-frills, traditional pizza shop that has been around for 80 years. We seated ourselves and ordered two medium pizzas so we could check out two different flavors (BBQ... More

Best Pizza Ever!!! New Haven has nothing on West Haven's very own Zuppardi's Apizza! We love eating there and get pizzas every couple of weeks. My family also has a tradition of celebrating birthdays there. Whenever we have family from out of town, it's Zuppardi's they want. Favorites: Cheese Meatball Sausage chicken/basil spinach (best to eat while there)

Thin crust, gooey cheese, it's worth burning the roof of your mouth because you can't wait to eat it!

If you like a perfectly thin crust with tasty sauce and just the right amount of mozz then Zuppardi's is your place! We all have a different favorite - mine is the white pie with fresh tomato, basil and garlic or the white with broccoli and garlic! Also try the barbecue chicken, sausage with roasted red peppers or just plain... More

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 meatball pizza. Toppings are substantial, and... More
