“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2015

Always lives up to its legendary name. Great pizza, great service and you get what you pay for. By far the best pizza in Connecticut.

“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014

6 of us enjoyed the food and atmosphere. A long line waiting to get into this 80 year old establishment is a reminder of the experience we had in Naples. The wait is always worthwhile. The 18 inch pizza is huge. Loved the bacon and chicken along with the sausage and pepperoni. Atmosphere is totally Italian. Service happy and excellent.

“The place to go if you don't want to wait in line”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2014

This review is for all the people who would rather have a tooth pulled than wait to get into a restaurant. I was born in New Haven, and have been going to both Pepe's pizza and the Spot all My life. Pepe's took over the Spot some 15 years ago there is no difference between the two other than the wait. The pizza is the same. There signature pizza is the fresh clam order it no cheese extra garlic and well done it will make you Cry. Next order a plain with onion also great these two alone make me go back. Med fresh clam, med plain with onion, 2 pitchers of beer ( good for 4 people) 48$ W/O tip. Great without the wait, even with a small line no more than 10 min. Really is one of the best.

“This is what Pizzas should be like”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2014

Frank Pepe's is a New Haven institution. It's been consistently rated as one of the best pizzas in the United States. I would definitely recommend getting in early, there is usually a queue around the block for dinner on weekends. The food is reasonably priced, generous proportions and friendly service. The white clam pizza is the BEST!
