I honestly cannot understand why this chain is so popular. The pizza is thin, burnt and very expensive. There are much better offerings for pizza in the Danbury area, I cannot see myself ever going back.

Pizza was yummy with balanced toppings. Had enough but did not feel heavy. It's really authentic coal burn pizza restaurant

Had dinner recently at this neighborhood restaurant. They do coal fired pizza, and they have some delicious options. On the night in question, the service was so, so ridiculously poor that it both infuriated me and made me laugh. We ordered two different pizzas. One came out fine, the other was incorrect. We politely declined the incorrect version, and tried... More

No frills, no spills, no silly toppings or extra side dishes, just good honest pizza at good honest prices. This is the only pizza I have found in America that mirrors anything you get in Italy. Wood oven cooked at super fast speeds in super hot temperatures with quality ingredients and wafer thin base; just as it should be.

I tried to post this on their Facebook page, however, they elected to hide it. So here it is: How awful! You offer a free birthday pizza, then put so many qualifications on it that we can’t use it???? What happened over there? Used to be excellent customer service. So disappointed; you lost a customer for life on this. Prior... More

We have frequented Pepe's for 45 years - going to the original Pepe's on Wooster Street in New Haven, CT. This was the first time eating at Pepe's in Danbury. It was excellent - but we think the Pepe's in New Haven is slightly better. Was very enjoyable. The server was excellent - could not have been better! We will... More

I have eaten at the original Pepe's in New Haven for many years. This a commercialized version of the original and falls short of duplicating the legendary original. However, versus the competition this is still a very good choice. The restaurant is spotless and is comfortable to eat in. The several salads offered are surprisingly good. The pizza is not... More

Excellent pizza. Very limited menu. Should more of a selection other than pizza. Always packed. Best brick oven pizza. Clean place.

We love this pizza restaurant and the one in Fairfield. Definitely the best pizza in America, the best base which is always blackened (I think that's my favorite bit)! Love the service. We visit either restaurants probably once a month. The only thing I don't like, because it is so popular, quite often there is an awkward wait in the... More
