Certainly one of the more cheesy pizzas I’ve ever had!! That said, one of the more delicious pizzas I’ve ever had. The taste was good but since there was so much cheese I’m not really sure about the sauce. The crust had a good texture...More

Ernie's pizza is FANTASTIC!!!! Can't figure out why people wait ridiculous amounts of time in lines at other places instead of just heading to Ernie's. The owner makes fresh delicious dough several times a day to serve up a pie that competes with any other...More

We stopped in after a craving for a great pie and were not disappointed. The place was busy, with all ages from babies to grandparents enjoying their food. We were greeted quickly, menu is concise with pizza being the star. We ordered a large sausage...More

Ernie's has been our family's favorite pizza place for many many years. It is easily as good as the more famous New Haven pizza restaurants and much easier to get into. They are nowhere as well known as they should be but maybe that is...More

My favorite new Haven style pizza! Whenever I'm away, I always come back home craving this this crust crispy deliciousness. And if you're lucky, they give you a tootsie pop as you leave

Been a fan for years. Great for take out or eat in. Don't expect a 20 minute pizza on weekends, expect a quality pizza, that's why if eating in, call ahead. Quality takes time and each pizza has the personal touch of the one and...More
