    Grab a clam pizza & a classic tomato pizza with a side of white birch beer. SUPERB. Worth the wait & worth the hype. Their shop next door does take out so you can bring the party to wherever you want!

    If you're here from July-Sept, get the fresh tomato pizza - you won't regret it! Also a terrific little house chianti is available - such a perfect leisurely summer lunch. Totally lives up to hype!

    Awesome no frills atmosphere. Just great pizza and beer with hyper efficient service. Don't you dare sleep on their White Clam pizza. You might find clam pizzas elsewhere but no one does it like this.

    Best Pizza!! Great flavor. There is a parking lot right before the restaurant. Wait in the waiting room. They will come and get you. Can't go wrong with a yuengling and pizza!

    Arrived Sat at 11, walked right in. Parking next door was empty too. Small clam was crispy clammy garlicy. Large original was doughy chewy cheesy, forgot homemade sausage! Combine halves of diff pies!

    Amazing food and atmosphere! The white spinach, mushroom, gorgonzola with chicken is a slice of heaven! All you need is a date and a glass of chianti and your set 🍷🍴💑🍕😃

    Ya, the pizza lives up to the hype. Tried the tomato pie and the clam garlic pie. Crust is super thin and crisp. Toppings are fresh and delicious. I don't know how you do better.

    The clam pizza is a little funky. It's good but I wouldn't ONLY get the clam pizza. The tomato pie with mozzarella is fantastic. I try to come here whenever I stop in New Haven.

    Like any respectable pizzeria, Frank Pepe doesn’t take reservations. The focus here was on the pizza. We ordered 4 pies: clams, pepperoni, 4 cheeses and spinach. The best!

    The white clam pizza is more unique, but the fresh tomato pie (with pepperoni, obviously) may be more delicious. Perfect food stop halfway between Boston and NYC.
  • Chris C.
    The white clam pizza is as good as they say. Thin dough almost like a naan and fresh clams cooked perfectly. Place can be packed but you can order to go.

    Get the fresh tomato pizza when it's in season! We added onions and pepperonis to it as well. Delicious!! Definitely one of the best pizzas I've ever had.

    The white clam pizza with the house wine is fantastic. Best time to go is during the week, few crowds. However the wait is very well worth it. So be quiet, and stand on line.

    This place stands out from the pizza-reastaurant-heavy part of Wooster Street. The wait was a little long, but there are some things in life worth waiting for and one of those things is good pizza.

    This place is legendary. I've had pizza all over the country and this is hands down the best! Known for their white clam pie, but try a shrimp, garlic and basil combo too.

    My buddy (nyc guy) says its the best pizza in America. I find it hard to make a strong argument otherwise. If not top, then top 5? 10? Either way, worth the wait in the cold.

    The Spot on the back is actually the original spot of Frank Pepe & the wait is usually much shorter. The pizza oven is over 100 years old!

    You'll see two separate structures: Frank Pepe's, and Original Frank Pepe's. They're the same company, same ingredients, etc. I think the "non-original" has more menu items. "Original" is just pizza.

    Hard to live up to the hype about this place, but was pretty damn good! Must try the clam pizza and white birch beer. Sausage & onion was another group favorite. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Hadn't been to pepe's in 20 years. We got the clam pizza and it's as divine as I remembered. Sweet clams. Tons of garlic. Crunchy thin crust. Try it. You'll like it.

    If you are visiting New Haven and you walk past this place hungry, you've got some issues. Don't forget the Mozzarella!

    Totally lives up to the hype. Super-tasty pizza. I suggest the original tomato + mozzarella and then add whatever you personally like. Treat yourself to two cold draft Peronis, too.

    Hello SCSY delegates! I'm impressed you made it out this far from the Yale campus - now you're in for a treat! Pizza was pretty much invented here! The white clam pizza is a specialty here

    If you like coal-oven pizza, this can't be beat. Service is quick, but don't expect warm and fuzzier from the staff...the place is a machine. Pro tip: get there before they open at 11am to get in line

    It's solid and a total landmark, but not exactly the best pizzeria in the world. Both The Spot and the neighboring location have the same menu and pie, so go wherever the wait is least!

    Best pizza in CT we had the tomato pie, half mushroom, and half vegetables.. Worth the drive ;)

    The. Best. Pizza. Ever. Seriously, come here to enjoy thin crust clam and fresh tomatoes pizzas, and don't forget to get a glass of chianti.

    Amazing pizza that puts most NYC pizzerias to shame (this is coming from a native New Yorker). If you're in town during the summer, try the fresh tomato pie.

    Frank Pepe is an icon in New Haven. The pizza is hot, cheesy and comes to the table fairly quickly. I favor the half cheese and pepperoni.

    This place has the best pizza I've ever had, hands down way better then Sally's. Compared to Sally's, Pepe's is cleaner, has WAY better service, and THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS!

    Everything here is good. I love the four cheese (doesn't sound exciting but it's heaven). Come late to skip the line.

    I've shared many pies at Pepe's with My aunt Louise DeLauro and cousin congress women Rosa Delauro.It's now owned by a good friend Gary Bimonte and the pie is still the best ever

    This is a 'must-do' for New Haven visitors. Totally worth it. Try the white birch root beer along with the Pizza.

    Drove all the way from Brooklyn....was worth it...better than NYC pie? Not so sure, but definitely different and amazing in its own way. Will be back.

    Try the white clam or the tomato pie with FoxonPark birch beer. You're welcome!

    The wait for a sit was a little ridiculous. It took us longer to sit at a booth. But, once we sat the food was great. Defiantly worth the wait.

    I'm not a crust eater, the crust is really charred so I cut it off. I've had better fire grilled pizza. I tried the pizza per a recommendation from a friend who is from here, would rate this a 6

    Nearly all the pizzas are great. The trick is their oven, so with a perfect crust, the topping options abound

    best pizza in the entire country, hands down, no trip to new haven is complete without a stop here to get some delicious pie, well worth the long lines and wait

    Lines are long for tables. Waltz right in, get carry out, and eat it in the park a block away!

    To call Pepe's a pizza place is akin to calling the Taj Mahal a house. Pepe's is THE pizza place. The one which all other pizza places are measured against.

    Pepes is great. Try the quadruple pizza program to decide for yourself "who had the best Pizza" Modern, Pepes, Sally's, And Bar?
