Coal fired pizza with plenty of toppings available. Food is served quick. It's just pizza and salads on the menu. I was hoping to stop at the original in New Haven...but traffic was very heavy and was pleasantly surprised to find this one in Fairfield. The waiting area is strange and could be a turnoff....they don't take names...you just que... More

We visited friends in the area and invited them to check the place out. We love to visit one at Mohegan Sun so this one was with high expectations and we were not disapointed. We had to wait for 30 min. to be seated on Tue. night but it was not too bad and we just chated trough.

You get what you pay for. Although a bit pricey, this is the best place for pizza. When my sons visit, we make sure to go here several times.

Just like the original in New Haven ... this thin crust pizza is a classic tomato pie, prepared to perfection. Particularly recommend the white clam!!

I'm not sure why people flock to Pepe's - either in New Haven or in Fairfield. I have been to both and find the long wait (especially in New Haven) isn't worth it. The service is slow and the pizza is just ok. Doesn't compare to NY pizza and definitely not Chicago pizza if deep dish is your thing.

My family loves pizza, enjoys trying new places with everyone always eager to critically review the details. Although this is my review, you are probably getting some input from the extended family perspective as well. Consistently good pizza but not quite up to the hype "Best pizza in America." The New Haven location, in my opinion, might be a little... More

This is our favorite pizza anywhere. We have been eating Pepe's since the 1980's. We are no longer living in CT but when we visit we always make several stops at their restaurant in Fairfield. It is almost always BUSY.....We ordered two large pizzas to go. They were crazy busy with lines awaiting tables. They had two pizzas in our... More

I was lucky enough to have the fresh tomato before they are gone. Worth the trip and worth the wait. This establishment is a landmark. So are the pies. Have to go back to the old standard, white pie with clam and bacon. Still the best in the area.

Great New Haven style pizza. Very generous portions. This not the original location, but is much easier to get to if you're driving through CT. Right off the interstate, decent amount of parking. We were lucky to get a table and not have to wait to be seated. It's a coal oven pizza - so it takes a while to... More
