Great pizza - as good as Naples. We had the sliced tomato and cheese which was a seasonal specialty. The flavor just popped and it was baked perfectly (thin but chewy dough). It was so good, as soon as we finished, we ordered a simple pepperoni pizza - again one of the best we had outside of NAples and for... More

The pizza comes with the great back story, the history, New Haven and long lines ect. The reality is they make an average pizza, charge a premium and don't cut it unless you ask. Seriously, don't CUT the pizza. And after you ask them to they cut it like a 1st grader with their eyes closed. Not an even piece... More

There are definitely better places in Manchester to eat pizza. The original place in New Haven is still the better spot.

Stopped in here during a work trip in the area. The restaurant was packed and seemed very popular with the younger local crowd. I ordered a pepperoni and sausage pizza for take out with a co-worker. We loved it! Great fresh, thin crust pizza!

The original recipe pizza is soooo fresh and delicious! Their offerings of beverages have a couple of different items available which is nice for a change. Service is excellent!

We ordered 3 different pizzas for a lunch meeting. They were great. Meat lovers was my favorite. We had a salad delivered with the pizza and everything was real good.

We were told that this place was the pizza in town so we went to check it out. We were not impressed at all. The pizza was not that good to be honest. Doubt I will ever go back

We have been great Frank Pepe New Haven fans for years and previously had been disappointed with the product in Manchester. This time, however, we were delivered a perfect pie -- incredibly thin crush well done, but not burnt, as requested -- with the perfect amount of toppings with their rich delicious tomato sauce. If Manchester continues to deliver this... More

Frank Pepe's Pizzeria Napoletana makes much of its history and delivers a cafeteria ambience with a heavy price tag. Silk prices for what looks like a sow's ear pizza hardly pays tribute to a New Haven, Connecticut icon. This hideaway iteration of the famous Frank Pepe's proves disappointing with a twenty dollar pie in artfully slashed and a staff too... More
