The line for this restaurant is shorter than that for Pepe's or Sally's, which are in the Wooster Square area. Modern Apizza is walking distance from the Science Hill portion of the Yale campus, and the Divinity School.

After a long day of touring Yale Modern Apizza was just what we needed and lived up to our expectations. Need to go there if you like pizza at all.

If you are willing to have your pizza with long chatting session this is the place to be. Local crowd you can find here during weekends. They also offers pitchers for beer. Pizza with red sauce are must try.

Modern is a local fixture in New Haven , been going on and off for at least 20 years. Cozy restaurant , not small, but kind of a small to medium place. You may have to wait for a seat ; I've never waited more...More

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

Not on campus, but there are many that are. Most will go to what's closest or to one that delivers. There are many & different styles too - like Greek style pizza with thicker crust vs thin crust. It depends on where you are... More
