As a lifelong New Yorker --I was so surprised how superior the pizza was here. The crust is perfect. We had a clam casino pizza - crispy bacon, clams and peppers and onions.

This has to be one of the best pizza restaurants in the New Haven, CT area. I had a veggie bomb tonight and it was absolutely delicious. I over ate because I enjoyed it very much. I recommend this place to everyone.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Modern. A few things made it special. First, it's good to have a waiting area. Second, our "veggie bomb" pizza was delicious. It was, of course, loaded with veggies and also had a wonderful crisp crust. We ordered a...More

Yesterday I flew myself in to New Haven to eat pizza and tour the Yale campus for the first time. The desk agent at the FBO suggested Modern Pizza as the best. He was right. Delicious, chewy crust on my margerita pizza. Happy and friendly...More
