Frank Pepe pizza is one of the best around. The pies are delicious. The crust is done perfectly. I must say that the shape and slice cuts are a little odd and random (some are rectangular!) but that is part of the charm and fun of the place. Try it, you'll like it!

Although the wait may be a longer time than expected, this place is worth the wait. This is a large, clean place with plenty of seating and perfect for large families and/or friends. What I like best about this place other than the delicious pizza, is that they focus on what they do best. No bells and whistle and no... More

Pepe's pizza is quite unique and flavorful, old world recipe and cooking does the trick. wood fired ovens make a big difference in taste. Worth the trip and at times worth the wait.. Great place for pizza.

Pizza is a personal experience. This is made just right in an open kitchen environment. Don't come here not wanting pizza, because all the serve is pizza. But what quality, what great combinations. A specialty is the clam pizza. If that sounds gross, it's obvious you have never tried it. Their dough is perfect, and all ingredients taste of love.... More

If you haven't been I highly recommend you try this place. My favorite is the peperoni and sausage. Quality key ingredients only used at this place. Order the ginger ale as well. Foxon park which you can only find at Pepes. Love this place.

Grew up on Pepe's Pizza. When I moved to New York, there wasn't anything quite like it. I was so happy when they opened up in Yonkers so I didn't have to drive 1.5 hours for some good pizza. The place is no frills but the food is amazing. This is the best pizza--try the clam pizza in the summer... More

I love a place that doesn't try to conquer the world but rather sets out to do a few things perfectly. That is Frank Pepe. They make beautiful pizza with fabulous toppings. No garlic knots, no ziti, no nonsense. The pizzas are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside like in Rome. The toppings are first rate, kudos... More

Some say that it's not the same as getting it in their original New Haven branch, but I was pretty thrilled with my roasted pepper and shrimp pie I had here in Yonkers the other night. I don't think you can go wrong with any pizza here, even the plainest and simplest...the mis-shapen brick over variety served is richly infused... More

And that's a good thing! Blistering heat of coals brings out new flavours. Crust is almost as good as new haven. Would definitely come back. Burnt edges normal. If you like hot pockets from microwave you should avoid.
