Pepe's is a distinctive coal-fired pizza. While hardcore devotees will swear that the original New Haven location is the only way to go, Chestnut Hill seems to uphold the same quality and taste as the original.

This is great pizza. Not sure why the negative reviews. Perhaps some tips would help. 1. Don't choose this place when you know it's going to be crazy busy... Fri Sat nights. No reason to wait. 2. Don't order a small pizza... like at any...More

Arrived at 6:00 p.m. Friday evening --waited 25 minutes, but as we stood in line, we observed the tables around us were not being served and few people left the restaurant. Finally, were offered a small table near the kitchen but it was not clean...More

Not the best pizza we’ve had but it was pretty good. Quite expensive, we were at the mall passing time and decided to take some to go out of curiosity. It tasted good, crust was so thin and edges burnt (not sure if that’s their...More

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.

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

There is no atmosphere, but who cares? It's a small pizza place, and you can't eat the ambiance. However, if you don't mind the heat, you could ask to be seated with a close view of the ovens so you can watch the show! As...More
