Clam pizza was very good and so was the regular mozzarella pizza. The Cesar salad ($7) was large easy large enough to share. No free refills on drinks ( huge disappointment! ) and the glasses were very small to start with. Over all worth a...stopMore

"Modern" is part of the trinity of NH Pizza...you know the other two members, so no need to mention them here. Modern is a favorite, in that it's off the beaten path and is just plain delicious on all fronts. We found a parking place...(weekday afternoon) and got a table right away (weekday afternoon). Service was really great and the pizza came out pretty quickly. As usual, awesome. But......a little undercooked this time for some reason. They have the best toppings, especially cheese, and the crust is normally heavenly, but this time, just a bit underdone. I'm chalking that up to a one-time issue, so you still get five stars (or whatever those are). I'll be back of course, because I just plain love you!!!More

Superb pizza, excellent service, fair prices. The most consistent of the big three, in my opinion. The Italian Bomb is a must try if you like lots of toppings.

I was about 10 miles out and I placed the order. I ordered a small half sausage and they said 30 minutes. It took me 10 minutes to get to the parking lot. It was pretty busy but spots were available. I walked into the...side for take out. The pizza was ready. I got to the car and tried it. It was very good most sauce out of the three places I tried.More

Took a day off with family and was looking forward to trying Modern for first time. Heard great things about the pizza. Things seemed fine until the pizzas arrived. The cheese was running off the pies and, though the crust looked crispy and browned, the...actually pizzas (all three) were undercooked and the dough was actually sticking to the parchment paper. It was pretty bad and wanted to complain but just left it alone and made mental note to not come back. When the bill arrived, each pie price was increased over $3 each, so we questioned it and were told prices went up today (what a coincidence!) and they still had the old pricing on menu and were working on it . We asked several times to grace the old pricing due to principal (pizzas were pretty awful) and were treated like we were unreasonable. (Small mozz pie $15!) The owner was sarcastic and unprofessional. He ended up just crediting us $3 though he owed us much more, we left it alone. As we left most the staff were laughing at us. We couldn't believe how we were treated. We will NEVER go there again and believe me, we will spread the word. The price increase I am sure is due to the recent hike for minimum wage and it's obvious he doesn't pay his workers well as they take NO pride in their pizza or service especially the cooks. What a shame for a historical place!More

We ordered the plain mozzarella pie and it was delicious. Modern lives up to all the hype. The place was busy as expected and we were seated within 15 minutes. You can’t go wrong so give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

Clubby, friendly and accommodating staff. First time out with my 91 year old Mom navigating a wheelchair thru town and restaurants. Appreciated so much helpful staff. Pizza was creative, hot, cheesy and delicious. Thin crust my fave!

I am from Chi town and that means only deep dish or stuffed for me. I was willing to give the New Haven pies a chance on our day trip. Have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. We loved the clam with white sauce...more than the veggie with red but both were good. What sold me was the slightly charred bready edge of the crust. So good. Then we went to the Yale tshirt store and they had a shirt that said “deep dish sucks”. It really doesn’t but whatever.More

Our group of 5 guys walked right in around dinner time for a great dinner. Our drinks and food all came out quickly. We couldn't believe how great the pizza was. Excellent options for toppings as well. Great time!

I don't believe they take reservations and the parking could be a problem for a large group unless you carpool. There is a very small lot nearby and there is on street parking. Depending on when you go might have an impact... More

Not on campus, but there are many that are. Most will go to what's closest or to one that delivers. There are many & different styles too - like Greek style pizza with thicker crust vs thin crust. It depends on where you are... More
