I only wish I didn't have to drive 3 hours to enjoy their pizza. Always stop on our way to Newport or Boston and stop again on the way home. I've had other brick oven pizza but it just isn't the same. I don't know what they do to make it so delicious but it is worth going if you... More

Modern Apizza is way better and far more consistent. They also answer the phone and you can get pizza to go in way less time and at way better quality. Go there instead.

Living in New England there is good pizza everywhere. Or you think there is. As a kid we always used to come to Frank Pepe for pizza but the memories that came flooding back had me taking 3 pizzas home AFTER we ate. This is the best pizza you will ever eat!

Prior to dropping NYC bound family member at Union Station, we grabbed lunch at this New England classic. Totally worth the twenty minute wait for a table. Especially due to the superb recommendation we received from a local family waiting in line with us. "My brother always gets the White Clam Pizza ... with bacon." It is the perfect combo.... More

Wow!!!!!! This pizza was amazing. It was so worth the a hour and a half ride from Rhode Island. All the ingredients were amazingly fresh. The wait staff were all friendly and efficient.

When I'm passing thru New Haven I stop at Frank Pepe and I'm never disappointed. Even though the "wait time" was 40 minutes, the service once seated was outstanding; quick on drinks, quick on ordering and pretty good on delivery. Waiter checked back with us frequently. The pizza is the BEST in the Northeast, if not the US. Salads were... More

We never miss Pepe's when in, traveling through or anywhere near New Haven. The original location is a Wooster Street gem. There is typically a wait to get in, but the line moves fast, and it is always worth the wait.

Everyone who loves pizza has different taste preferences. We have visited Wooster Street numerous times over the years but have not wanted to stand in the long line to get into Pepe's. Fortunately, we were in New Haven on a Monday around noon and there was no line. We ordered the Margherita pizza and a salad. The Pepe's salad was... More
