“The Original”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Pepe's is iconic. I prefer the plain mozzarella. Don't overlook the white clam or clams casino pie either, although the latter is not listed on the menu.

Keep in mind, however, that the quality of Pepe's pizza can vary from day to day. Pepe's on an off day (and they do have them) is still better than most other locations on their best day. That's why I've been eating pizza at Pepe's for over 40 years.

In addition, I have eaten at Pepe's newer Danbury and Fairfield locations and can report that remarkably, Pepe's has not lowered its standards for the sake fo expansion.

“Good but not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Napoletana maybe, but not like Napoli. Too much oil on the pizza. Enjoyable, but not as great as they make it out to be.
