Best of New Haven pizza off Wooster St. Crisp, thin crust...so tasty. Wish I lived closer still. On some nights there's a line, but usually moves quickly. Just writing this review makes me want to go back tomorrow!

30 years ago I discovered this amazing Pizza. Never had a bad pie or experience. Have at the other two New Haven places. YMMV New Haven Pizza needs to be eaten hot out of the oven. Enjoy

Bacon was to salty over powered taste of clams. Also to much garlic was on the pizza. Crust to thin so it was a soggy in middle.

We started going to Modern when we had small children and couldn’t face the lines at other New Haven pizzerias.... famous but really. Modern has all the taste, a bit less wait for a table, and frankly the best sauce.

I don't believe they take reservations and the parking could be a problem for a large group unless you carpool. There is a very small lot nearby and there is on street parking. Depending on when you go might have an impact... More
