Modern rules Pepe's & Sally's. The Wooster twins are over-priced with an overly long wait. Amazed at alum's clinging to tradition vs. enjoying New Haven's finest . Modern simply has the best Clam pizza on the planet.

We heard a ton about this restaurant from relatives that used to live in the area so when we discovered that our son and daughter-in-law were moving there we bought them a gift card for their anniversary. They loved it and so we had to try to when we visited. I have to say it was some of the best pizza that we've ever had, and we love pizza! If you go you really must try the Italian Bomb. I don't think there is anything they left off the pizza.

With due respect to Pepe's, Modern is the quinnessential New Haven pizza - thin crisp crust, fresh tomato, quality toppings. Yes the wait at the entrance can take awhile, and yes they are not always right there to take your name, but this isn't Ruby Tuesdays (or worse yet, Sally's, where waiting in line is a joke as "friends" are always seated first anyway!). Service is always on the spot, and I have never been disappointed in a pie. Add a cold beer and enjoy...

Modern Apizza is pretty much the same as Frank Pepe's but has a larger menu

Modern is clearly the third best in New Haven. Not the country. But, it is the fastest. Disregard anything said by New Yorkers or especially Chicagoans. New Haven has the best pizza (or Apizza) in the country. Period.
