“Takes me back to Sally's in New Haven, CT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My husband and I had a blind date at Sally's Pizzeria in New Haven, CT 10 years ago this December. Until eating here we have longed for that crisp coal fired pizza from back in the day. Haven takes us back their and is the real deal with original New York/CT American pizza. Coal ovens are the only way to add that fabulous mouth watering crisp traditional texture and flavor. Thanks for providing us a place to escape and travel back to yesterday! Yummy!

“Very Good New Haven style Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Had a small clam and spinach pizza today here. By far the best New Haven style in this area.
The clams were good as well as the spinach. The crust was thin and a bit crisp as was done many years ago getting this style good. Service was good and the wait at 12:30 PM was only about 15 minutes.

“Classy and Delish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The pizza itself was wonderful with a crunchy crust and flavorful toppings. The ambience was pretty nice and wasn't intimidating. The only thing bad was the service. The waiters and waitresses are nice but because it is so busy, it may take a very long time for the pizza to arrive. Overall though, I had a very nice experience.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is the newest pizza place in Bethesda, and so far we've only had carry-out, about a dozen times! I'm severely lactose-intolerant, so in general pizza is a challenge. But Haven specializes in tomato pies, with crispy thin crusts. So I get an individual pie with something like artichokes and sausage, and no cheese, and no one ever wants to share!

“Great New Haven style pizza, excellent wine and beer selection, superb gelato.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We go to Haven frequently and the service is always excellent. On the one occasion they slipped up, they brought us an extra free meal. They have a great wine cellar, which is outrageous for a pizza place. The pizza is perfect.
