    Great, GREAT pizza (apizz) at good prices and in abundance. And here, the wait is 1/3 the time you endure at Frank Pepe's up the street, and dare I say it?, the pizza is nearly as good. Go!

    Yes but I've had better pizza. The service was very and good and our order came very quickly. But I think Buffalo NY has better pizza. The pizza was very good though, nice flavor and crisp crust.

    Food was great, had a veggie bomb pizza with eggplant. Eggplant was amazing. The only complaint is the crust was a little well done.

    The Italian bomb is definitely a meat lovers dream. There is a street parking and a small parking lot.

    the modern white clam pizza is the best in new haven; drizzle some lemon on it and it'll taste even better... also try the tomato basil pizza

    1) Great Pizza 2)Takes 4ever to get your order BUT when they do pizza gets there quickly 3) The Elm City Sea Hag IPA is much better than the lager
