“New Haven pizza on the North Haven/Hamden townline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Best pizza without going to New Haven, been going there since they opened, Mostly takeout although there is a few tables. Be prepared to pickup your pizza after you call, pizza is usually ready in 15 minutes. Price is a little on the high side but you gotta pay for the best. The Modern Apizza of North Haven/Hamden.

“Real Deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

If you don't want to wait in long lines or dodge flying bullets in New Haven go here to get pizza. This place is better than anything on Wooster St. and it is just as good as Modern. They also have Foxon Park soda. Cash only.

“Better than Wooster St”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, so I have a few ideas about how pizza should taste. To my mind, a great pizza tastes great without additional toppings, and that's how we always ate it in Brooklyn. I have nothing against pepperoni etc, but they can help a lesser pizza taste good - a great pizza tastes so good you don't need toppings.

When we moved to Hamden last year, we tried Pepe's and Sally's on Wooster St. because of their reputation. Good pizza, but definitely not worth the the lines and hassle. (We also tried Abate on Wooster - it's pretty darn good too, and no lines). Then we tried Olde World, which is about a half mile from us. Wow, we thought it was as good as Brooklyn pizza, and there's no line! Slightly charred crust, yummy cheese, but it's the luscious sauce that really gives it it's great flavor.

The first time we tried them we ate there, and the pizza was hot right from the oven and tasted great. But the place doesn't have a nice atmosphere for eating, just three wobbly tables very close to all the people coming in for takeout. So now we just takeout all the time. If you're into standing on long lines to get into trendy places, go to Wooster St. Otherwise go to Olde World for really great pizza.

“Best pizza in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

This place and Modern have the best pizza in the area. If you don't want to deal with going into New Haven go here. Brick oven, thin crust, excellent.

“New haven Pizza fast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Best option for New Haven style pizza if you don't feel like parking in New Haven for takeout pizza. Call and it will be ready in 15 minutes. Only hassle is no credit cards. Great options for toppings, friendly service and always great pizza ...brick oven style.
