The pizzas in this New Haven tradition are amazing. The serving size is also very generous. It's gets very crowded during lunch hours and weekends with Yale students. Must visit if you are around Yale-New Haven. Service can be improved.

My family and I are regulars at Pepe's. The pizza is wonderful but it is not the only good pie in town. If you are visiting from out of town it is worth the time and hassle to get a pie here as it is arguably one of the first pizza joints in the country. A few things to know... More

I know that pizza is a personal choice. However, if you like your pizza thin crusted and well done, you simply cannot beat Pepe's pizza. Their native tomato when in season is the best pizza I've ever had. They are also known for their white clam pizza but you can't go wrong with anything you order. Don't let people tell... More

Was treated to a great lunchtime visit to this very historical place - been making pizza in this restaurant since 1925, the atmosphere is really alive here! Authentic and the pizza is so tasty! As usual the size of servings in USA are already humongous and not surprisingly, I had to take half of mine home with me - bonus!... More

You will undoubtedly have to wait in line for a chance to enjoy this New Haven classic. Even thought is been reported in many times on the Food Network and such, nothing's changed. Still the same great thin crust pizza. The white clam pie is amazing!!!

I just love Pepe's pizza! They are consistently delicious with a crisp, thin crust. Many toppings to choose from; every one I tried has been great! Personal favorite is roasted red peppers. Nice perk is free birthday pizza when you sign up for emails from them.

Whenever we are passing through Ct this is where we stop. Pizza and service is always great but this time I want to give a special thanks to our waitress. Sorry do not know her name. After we left the parking lot we were turning down the street and she came running out with my husbands cell phone. Ya! Thanks... More

During our trip to America we had the opportunity to try different foods in different restaurants. Frank pepe was one of them. When we had the restaurant there was a long queue in front of us. It was tiring to wait, but after eating the pizzas, we saw it definitely worth it.

I've been going to this Pepe's location for 50 years. I'm a baker. I sold innumerable pizzas in many restaurants over the years, I conceptualized and founded David's Cookies. Why the creds? To point out I really know the difference. The pizza isn't good anymore. It is ordinary. The kind you can get at any local pizaa store. At more... More
