We went to Frank Pepe Pizzeria after a friend from NY recommended it...and their white clam pizza. I don't personally like the Napoleon style pizza...I like a thicker crust, but thought we'd give it a try. We ordered the white clam pizza and just thought it was OK...my husband pretty much hated it and he likes thin crust pizza. He... More

I came here with a friend and had a wonderful time. The pizza was very good, just the way I like it, thin crust, full of flavor and the perfect balance of sauce, cheese and crust. They really know how to do pizza well at Pepe's and no wonder, they've been doing it for many years. I love all the... More

This place does not disappoint, we ordered two pizzas, one with white sauce and clams and the other with red sauce and multiple cheese. The dough is so thin and crisp and their red sauce is... More

They have forgotten how to make good crust. Can not compare to Sally's. The toppings are, however, still quite good.

Just OK. I would not go out of my way. I ate at the original in New Haven, not one of the franchise outlets. Restaurant has a following and was once considered the best pie in USA. I used to work close by and ate the several times. Consistent and good, not great

I enjoyed pepperoni pizza and my friend had pizza with white sause with clams. Yum. Definitely yummy and worth the visit/drive. We had a difficult time finding it with all the construction going on. We pursued and found it. All I can say is yum

Something unique is a clam pizza and this is the place for it. If that is not your idea of dinner, then the other pizza options are great too. Thin crust and tasty!

Excellent pie. If you find yourself in New Haven, CT for any reason, you need to try Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana. You will judge all pizzas by Pepe's.

The pizza we... More
