Horrible pizza. Burnt and expensive. Don’t even get me started on the brown Caesar salad. 2 out of every 3 pieces of lettuce were brown. See my pictures.

If you have never had New Haven pizza, head to Frank Pepe's. We ordered a large meatball pizza as well as their fresh tomato pizza, which were delicious. New Haven pizza has a bit more of a char on the dough, which adds a whole...More

This is the first time I have been to Pepe’s location outside of main location in New Haven, CT (a location that can never be duplicated). We were a group of five. I was the only one who was gluten free. There are not a...More

We went with the four of us to Frank Pepe for our last holiday meal. Very enjoyable indeed. We had four small pizzas, all thin crust and all very tasty. The restaurant is very buzzing as well. Great place to enjoy a nice pizza evening.

Frank Pepe's Pizzeria Napoletana has made it up to the greater Boston area, and it is well worth the lines (and believe me, there are lines). As others have said, it's not a fancy spot, but the pizzas are fresh out of the oven and...More

I'm very picky about my pizza. Santarpio's in East Boston is my favorite, but it isn't convenient for me. I also love the classic Greek pan pizzas from Town Spa, Cape Cod Café, Christo's and Lynwood. I went to Frank Pepe's original location in New...More

My son remembered this coal fired pizza from Connecticut and we decided to try the Newton restaurant. He told me the white clam is the classic so we shared that and it was amazing! The "char" cooked version was thin, crispy and the flavors delicious.

It's good pizza. The original tomato pie is my favorite. I tried half original and half with mozzarella, I liked original best. Still not as good as Town Spa in Stoughton

I have certain standards when it comes to pizza. First I like thin crispy crust - check, I like a little bit of char on crust - check, options for toppings- check, sauce that is not sweet- check, not too much cheese- check. Then why...More
