Great pizza, similar to the New Haven location. Sometimes there's a super long wait to get a seat and call 30min in advance for pick up.

Stopped by for a late dinner and came away fully satisfied. Pizza's and salad's only served here, no pasta or heroes. We shared a small Caesar Salad and a small pizza with two toppings and were full and had no leftovers. Friendly server. Will dine here again when in the area.

A friend of mine suggested we try Frank Pepe's pizza, To me it tasted like the kind of pizza we used to get in school. It was a plain cheese pizza and I was not impressed. We must have a least 150 pizza places in the Manchester Area. This is not one I would want to go back to EVER.... More

To eat at Pepe's, you have to understand the tradition. Frank perfected the art of pizza by cooking with coal in 1925. This pizza is anything but normal or a traditional pie. It is thin, well done and slightly burnt. There is a lot of flavor in the slight burning. Again, non traditional. It is an original style, just like... More

Some of the most creative combos. The clams and bacon, who would have thought of such a mix but my friend, Bob, was tremendous. Big pies served by a friendly, dedicated and long term crew. Recommend highly!

Great pizza - as good as Naples. We had the sliced tomato and cheese which was a seasonal specialty. The flavor just popped and it was baked perfectly (thin but chewy dough). It was so good, as soon as we finished, we ordered a simple pepperoni pizza - again one of the best we had outside of NAples and for... More

The pizza comes with the great back story, the history, New Haven and long lines ect. The reality is they make an average pizza, charge a premium and don't cut it unless you ask. Seriously, don't CUT the pizza. And after you ask them to they cut it like a 1st grader with their eyes closed. Not an even piece... More

There are definitely better places in Manchester to eat pizza. The original place in New Haven is still the better spot.

Stopped in here during a work trip in the area. The restaurant was packed and seemed very popular with the younger local crowd. I ordered a pepperoni and sausage pizza for take out with a co-worker. We loved it! Great fresh, thin crust pizza!
