I'd rate Modern third out of New Haven's top pizza places.
I should add that New Haven really does have the best pizza in the USA. That may be hard to believe for some outsiders but have a taste and then I think you will agree!
I'd put Pepes and Sallies (both of Wooster St - New Haven) ahead of Modern by some margain. Yet Modern is far easier to deal with on a day to day basis if you just want to eat and don't want to wait too long. The pies here are very good and the lines are CONSIDERABLY shorter than at Pepes and Sallies. You may even find a parking spot within Modern's lot! However don't ever expect to just walk right in - expect at least a 10 minute wait and it can often be longer.
For the best pizza, regardless of wait, go to Pepes or Sallies. These places are worth the additional time but not on a week by week basis.
