Got lucky with a short wait. Place is worth a stop if in area. The staff is fantastic and efficient. The pizza was awesome and the beer was cold. Great lunch!

First visit. Heard a lot about New Haven apizza and didn’t want to miss the chance to try it. Waited 35 minutes (around noon on a Saturday). Pizza was good. Nice crust. Really liked the burnt edge. Not very cheesy and the cheese does not...stick to the crust however. Worth the visit but I’m not sure I would want to wait in line for longer than 20 minutes again.More

I was so excited given that I had heard that modern a pizza was named this pizza in New Haven but I got to say I honestly don’t get it. I ordered the clam pizza a classic everywhere I’ve gone, and I was disappointed. The...clams were tough and chewy. The pizza had no flavor, and the crust was dull, too thick and tasteless. Sal Pepe is still the tops.More

The atmosphere was great. We had a short wait in the entry. The server was a lovely young woman with a pleasant smile. We ordered one small mushroom pizza and a Caesar Salad. The pizza was delivered to our table within 10-15 minutes. It was...delicious!! The Caesar Salad came first so wait for the pizza seemed like nothing. Next time, I would ask to have the dressing on the side, as it was a bit heavy. Everything about our first experience with Modern Apizza in New Haven was positive!More

I’ve done the big three for years, since I was a little fella. Sally’s was once my all time favorite until Flo’s passing followed by the kids selling. It is NOT the same. Found Pepe’s to be much more consistent and became my “Go To”....Now late this afternoon I decided to give Modern a try and let me say it happened to be the best pie I’ve had in years. So glad I returned, undisputed best NH Pizza. Can’t wait to return.More

I had high expectations given Modern's reputation and the fact that I like all the other New Haven-area pizza titans (i.e Pepe's, Sally's, Zuppartis). So I was completely surprised that our pizza was quite average. The sauce wasn't great and the various toppings we got...ranged from low-to-average quality. Again, this is not what I expected from a place like this. The service was friendly enough. I won't be returning.More

Was in the New Haven area this week and craved a Modern Apizza. It did not disappoint. In my opinion best pizza in the state. Live in West Hartford and we have a Pepe’s. Not only is it better than Pepe’s but it’s 20-30% cheaper....Try this pizza if you are in the New Haven area. Been eating it for years but this last visit made me realize how dang good it is!More

I tried a few pizza places on this short trip. This was my favorite. The flavor of the pizza was good. The crust was nice. I parked at the gas station on the corner and walked over. I got a seat pretty quick. I had...about an hour before my flight. I got my order quickly. I had a few slices and right away, the flavors were different. I ordered lightly cooked, so the crust flavor was good. Not burned. The service was good. They were attentive. I got my drink refilled without me asking. Everything was good and I will be back. Recommend.More

Modern has always been my favorite go-to in New Haven, but Friday night they went above and beyond. I was there right at the height of their busy dinner rush for takeout. When paying, I dropped my wallet, and apparently one of my cards fell...out. I didn’t realize it until after I left. However, I turned around and went back and talked to the staff at the takeout counter. They didn’t see anything immediately, so I left my information in case they came across it. Well, much to my surprise, I got a call about a half hour later saying that they found it. The girl said they actually were crawling around on their hands and knees with flashlights, and looking underneath kitchen equipment and were able to find it. Not only did she call me back, but the manager followed up with a phone call as well, just to make sure that I knew they found the card. Knowing how busy they are on a Friday night, while the sidewalk was packed with waiting patrons, they still went above and beyond. As soon as I walked back in today, they remembered me from Friday, however, they still did the right thing and checked my ID. They also kept it locked up for me in a secure place until I came back to get it. Just another example of why they are the best! Thank you tons Modern Apizza!More

I had been going to Modern Pizza for the Best Pizza every week while living in Connecticut. When I moved to Florida, I missed their wonderful pies sooo much that I even had them send me their pressure-packed pies in the mail!! Nothing beats the...wonderful, slightly charred crust and all the great toppings they have, along with the best sauce ever…Modern Pizza is #1 in my book!!More

Great thin crust pizza. We had sausage and garlic (not on menu but ask for it) was a great combination. Sausage was very flavorful along with great sauce and cheese. We lucked out and had a short wait. Service was very good.

Awesome pizza, fresh ingredients and good staff. Way better than Sally’s!! It’s a great option when the Pepe’s line is too long.

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
