The pizza is brick oven and slightly charred. Best pizza of my life. Entrees Ike spaghetti and meatballs and eggplant rollatine, were fresh and delicious and only $8. You need your head examined if you choose to eat elsewhere.

Interior is simple. Mix of Booths and tables. Generally a line to get in. But worht the wait. Very extensive choices of pizza. Once in Service is fast and efficient.

We have visited every pizza place in new haven and always come back to Modern. We believe it is definitely the best. Service is quick. Side salads are good too.

Stopped in for an early dinner on a Thursday evening around 5:30pm and were seated right away. We ordered 2 small pies, a tomato and a mozzarella. The mozzarella pie was excellent; the sauce, cheese and crust all had a great depth of flavor and...More

Not on campus, but there are many that are. Most will go to what's closest or to one that delivers. There are many & different styles too - like Greek style pizza with thicker crust vs thin crust. It depends on where you are... More
