I can't eat mozzarella so my choices in the pizza dept are very limited. This place is perfect for me! their plain pizza is olive oil, tomatoes and garlic with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. you have to add mozzarella as a topping. We had sausage and mushrooms and it was outstanding. The waitresses are a bit rushed and aloof... More

I found the pizza to be good. I didn't know that there was a spot where you can just go in and order because trying to get in and sit down is a long wait with people waiting to get inside. I will have this pizza again and I really don't eat pizza much.

I have been a patron for approximately 35 years. The last time I went was approximately two years ago on a Tuesday night at 7:30 PM. I thought the place was closing but the waitress assured me it was not. I ordered a clam pie. When the pie was served, there were cold clams on the top of the pie... More

The wait wasn't very long. We got there about 5:30pm. The pizza was ok. It wasn't as good as the pizza we get locally in Wallingford. I won't be going back. Have lived in the New Haven area all my life and have heard so many people talk about how good Pepe's Pizza is. The service also, was just ok.

There is just something about this pizza. The sauce, the cheese, the crust are all a perfect marriage. I would wait in a two hour line for this pizza although I luckily have never done that. The cravings continue since the nearest one is an hour away. I want pizza this every day.

We used to go here all the time when I was in high school. Saturday afternoons, wait in line for an hour and chow down on thin crust pizza. Well, we were in town yesterday for another event and haven't been here in a long time so we stopped in for an early lunch. We got there around 11:30a.m. just... More

Brilliant pizza, it is easy to see how it has got its reputation. Not advisable to go here if you are in a hurry. There was a huge queue for tables

I read that this was one of the most famous places to eat in New Haven, so we gave it a try. The pizza was very good. Not exactly like the authentic pizza you get in Naples but still good. They have two restaurants almost next door from each other. They are the same, but one gets longer lines than... More

They have outstanding pizzas. I just can't choose which one is the best. Crunch thin pizza with right amount of everything. You have to try it.
