“Another great New Haven pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Good pizza - tough to compete in New Haven for pizza but Ernie's does it very we'll... We had a pizza with half mozzarella and sausage and half broccoli and sausage... Try it..

“Average Pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Everyone has different preferences for pizza. This was average. Not bad, but not great. Yes, ingredients are fresh, but just so-so tasting. Agree with earlier comment, dough needs a bit of salt. Service was very pleasant. We were near Yale and saw reviews for various pizza places in that area, but decided to try Ernie's. Hm...should we have stayed downtown?

My son pickup two pizzas for take-out!
At home I open the boxes it was a hot burnt mess. Poor business practices.I would have never let anyone leave my shop with that mess.

“Great Pizza and friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Stopped into Ernies last night. Had not been there in 30 years. Was not sure what to expect. Well, we were very happy we did. The restaurant is still owned by the same family. The menu consists of Pizza , salad, wine and beer. The pizza was great. The staff was very friendly and the service was also great. Can't wait to go back.

“A Westville landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Ernie's pizzeria is a very nice family owned and run business that makes a very good pizza. The ingredients are always fresh, the service is friendly and efficient and the prices are reasonable. One downside, if you like to save the crust til afterward and eat it on its own, you won't like Ernie's, his dough is bland (needs some salt) . Otherwise one of the overall best in the area.
