When my family first brought me here near forty years ago. We weren't served pizzas, for we were told they were "tomato pies. Really? Well, we soon learned we loved these tomato pies a lot better than any pizza I've been served. All these years later, I'm still of the same mind: I LOVE this stuff!

Always very happy all around. One of our favorite New Haven pizzeria stops, perhaps the top favorite. Always bring our out-of-town guests and family too.
