I love pizza. If I am in the presence of great pizza I could eat it every day. There is a lot of hype around this place and frankly I don't think it deserves it's rep. Definitely better than average, but life changing? No. The long wait times don't help either. I haven't been back, and am in no rush... More

In town on business and really wanted some good Yankee pizza. Decided to give it a try based on the reviews. Restaurant was very clean and the wait staff was very attentive. Ordered a small pie with peperoni, extra mozzarella, and garlic. Pizza was huge for a small. Way more than I could eat. Peperoni lacked little flavor and I... More

You won't find better pizza than this place! A New Haven original has come to Danbury. Just like the original. Once you have their pizza you won't want anyone else's.

You know what you are going to get at FP's. Neopolitan-style pizza with the basics. One salad. No desserts. No distractions from the generous portions of hot from the oven chewy crispy slightly burnt cheesy pizza. A tradition with a retro family friendly feel, FP's is always consistent and always busy. Is it better than Stanziato's? Not in this writer's... More

Frank Pepe has been around for 100 years, and you can see why. The modern restaurants, coupled with the old-world recipes, makes it a must-visit when traveling thru CT. Thin crust, homemade sauce, very good mozzarella. Today's pie was pepperoni, very flavorful and a little smokier than average. Also visit locations in Yonkers, NY and Chestnut Hill, MA. Watch pizza... More

FIRST OFF...Makes your party stand in the foyer before anyone even approaches you as to how many. Don't DARE set foot inside!!! Food finally comes... 1. Pepperoni pizza with hardly any pepperoni. 2. No flavor...had to add ton of garlic & Oregano. 3. Tiny plates to make the narrow slices appear large. (Go to Portifino's in Goldens Bridge, NY to... More

I know that Frank Pepe's has a large cult following and usually tops the "Best of" lists. They make a very good pizza with generous portions and the fresh tomato pie (seasonal) is special, but I would choose Stanziato over FP any day and even Pulcinella's rivals or surpasses. This can be a noisy and happy place that features some... More

All of the hype about this place, I was less then impressed. I love the thin, crunchy crust, but each piece was thin at the bottom, then thicker and doughy at the top. Not to my liking. Its VERY hard to find thin, wood burning oven pizza outside on LI & the city. And I found it very odd that... More

Even though your chooses are limited the pizza is fresh and scrumptious. I love their whit pizza, no one else seems to make at as they do! It's like spaghetti and white clam sauce without the spaghetti but instead on thin crispy crust with lots of garlic. Not many choices but enough to satisfy. A simple dinner or lunch. Slices... More
