One of the three "high church" pizza joints in New Haven. Don't expect to just walk in on a weekend. Holy ground for a pizza believer.

If you get jammed up and can't get into Pepe's, Modern Apizza has pie that is just as good and has a great variety to choose from as well. Highly recommended and takeout is simple also. Only downside, parking is crazy tight, so it's best...More
