Always fantastic. The sausage and mushroom and white clam pizzas are the best. We went on Friday at 9:30 PM and there was no line.

Waited for 15 minutes on line but well worth it. Simple, thin crust pizza was hot, crispy and awesome. Original tomato pie is a must have and is cut into weird strips and slices. we had a gorgonzola spinach and mushroom pie that was very different and uniquely delicious. Also we had a small season fresh tomato pie that had... More

We've always had great pizza at Pepe's and have been to the New Haven and Yonkers locations. The only thing about the New Haven location is that there is usually a line for a table, but this tends to move along quickly. I've had the fresh tomato, margherita, plain, and clam pies and and they're all fabulous. Make sure you... More

This is a classic, old school pizzeria. I went with a crowd, we had fast seating, our waitress was a blast (she kept calling my friend "doll"). We ordered a small of every specialty pizza on the menu with two pitchers of beer and spent about $120. A real deal. Fast service, great pizza and a fun family atmosphere -... More

When the pizza arrived I was so excited for that first bite of heaven. But unfortunately, the pie was pretty darn... More

OK lets just get this out of the way up front, New Haven CT is the pizza capitol of the US. I know there are varying opinions about where is the best, but most agree it one of the New Haven landmarks. For me and my family it is Pepe's hands down. You may wait for a half hour or... More
