I might sound like a cliche, but Pepe's Pizza is #1 for a reason.The thin crust, the just right amount of toppings,. If you are visiting New Haven for business or pleasure- It is worth the wait for a tomato pie and a Foxon Park...More

Marvellously basic. Their aim is to produce the best pie. In the original restaurant, you view the pies being made. Pie, Pepe Salad and jug of Sam Adams is marvellous. And you realise that pies are not round ! This is the original location of...More
