Went for dinner on a Tuesday night at 5:30 and were seated right away. By 6:00, the place was full and a line had started. We had the mozzarella pie and it was very good. Normally we would have gone to Sally's Apizza down the street but they were closed. We still think Sally's is the best we've ever had... More

Amazing pizza!!! White clam was to die for!! And the four cheese was the perfect to accompany it. Ate a whole pizza myself as did my friend!

I set out to compare what the locals said were the best pizzas in town, Pepe and Modern Apizza. So I ate in both places on 2 separate nights and ordered what I think is the standard for all pizza joints; the basic pepperoni pie. If you can't make pepperoni good, then you can't make pizza. Pepes pizza was classic,... More

The place had a queue out side when we came which is a good sign. The service was good and there is enough choices. I came from the UK so I am not use to the pizza sizes. We took two medium size pizzas which will be considered XXL back home. The dough and the crust was out of this... More

On our way to Cape Cod we stopped here for lunch. We were very fortunate and had a three minute wait. We ordered a 16" white clam pie. When our pizza arrived, it was thin, crispy, charred and crusted. It was covered with loads of clams, grated cheese, olive oil, fresh garlic and oregano. My wife also ordered a Foxon... More

Yes, the pizza was good, but no pizza is worth a 45 minute wait in my opinion. Plus, the waitress was tired and cranky. Add a star if waiting and line and being barked at by the wait staff doesn't bother you.

We had heard about pizza in New Haven, and Frank Pepe's was the place that topped the list of everyone I talked to who had lived here, so we tried it out. We were here on a Friday night and I worried about the line, but the wait wasn't all that bad for us (20 min or so?). This is... More

We are pizza snobs - I said it. We came to Frank Pepe based on TripAdvisor reviews. We arrived at 11:00 and there was already a big line. Please know that in the parking lot sits the original Frank Pepe's - which we noticed had a very small line. We went there and were seated after only a few minutes,... More

We had pizza from Frank Pepe's last night! It never disappoints. We went with loaded pizzas instead of a typical cheese pizza and were very pleased. The vegetarian with sausage and pepperoni was great and a fresh tomato pizza, when it is in season, is a winner. This place is not fancy by any means good food. Salads are ample... More
