“Heavenly Pie!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Every trip to Pepe's is always a treat. From the thin crust, delicious sauce, and mouthwatering toppings (bacon and onion are my favorite), I am never disappointed with a Pepe's experience. The wait in line is totally worth it as that old brick oven definitely provides a unique flavor to the most sought after pizza in town. Ultimately, a trip to New Haven must include a visit to Pepe's!

“Just THE BEST!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We're locals and we love the white clam the best but all the pies are excellent. Expect to wait for a table on weekends but worth it. If you can't wait, opt for take out. Ask for it half baked and finish cooking it at home. Awesome that way!

“Perfect”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Just how pizza suppose to be..........love this place. Every pizza we get is great, thin crust, brick oven made. The clam and garlic pizza is killer good. Can't explain it but try it! I've been here many times, sometimes there is a short wait........but it's worth it. Be aware, they don't sell anything else except pizza, soda and beer.

“Best White Clam Pizza; Bar None”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have been to Pepe's multiple times over the past 30 years and it, along with Sally's, ranks as the best thin crust Pizza that can be had in Connecticut or anywhere. Pepe's white clam pizza, however, beat's Sally's white clam version hands down. Except for Sallys, no other pizza place compares.
