First time trying this coal-fired pizza, and it won't be the last! The margherita pie with fresh mozzarella and basil was wonderful. Nice thin crust with just the right amount of "char" on the bottom from the oven.....loved it. Wish they had an antipasto salad...More

Pizza is coal fired and always fantastic. Even when there is a line, it is worth the wait. A Connecticut icon, the best pizza in the US!

The pizza is great here. Waitress was friendly. Be prepared to wait because they are a busy place but it's worth it

Less options for vegetarians but never fail to amaze. The brick owen pizza that it has is the best near around. Always prefer this place over any other place.

This was surprising and somewhat disappointing. Perhaps the ovens aren't 'broken in' yet, as I've heard similar comments about the Waterbury location. Listen, Pepe's is the best pizza ever....in New Haven for sure and even at the casino. Maybe it's the water....maybe it's the oven....More

Best pizza ! We order the shrimp & garlic with white sauce. It is the best. Forget the clam try the shrimp

Place was unbelievably crowded on an early Monday night. Fortunately, their huge, specially built oven was up to the task. Unlike most regular American pizza joints who rely on Mozzarella for one of the toppings, this restaurant grates its own blend of Italian cheeses to...More

The pizza was the best. Very thin crust and it was cooked perfect. You can't go wrong with any of the choices they have.

I would not go there for a rehearsal dinner. Unless you had the place to yourself you would not have a privacy. I think there's only the 1 open dining area. They do have great pizza but unless they give you the entire... More
