My three 40-something kids think this is the best in town. It's excellent and my #2. When one meets a New Havener for the first time the cognocenti asks, Modern, Sally's or Pepe's? (All of them are apt to have lines at the popular times)...More

Modern Apizza is a popular place, and I can see why! Their atmosphere is casual and their waiters are nice. Their pizza is also really great! We ordered the white pizza Clam Casino, and it was thin-crusted, with real clam pieces and lots of bacon!!!...More

I've been coming to Modern for years. This is a pizza restaurant frequented by many locals. My favorite is the sausage and mozzarella, but the white clam pizza is amazing too. If you want to avoid waiting in a long line, come early. I can't...More
