cool old town atmosphere

Pepe's Pizza was in Little Italy, the people were friendly and it seemed to be a busy, safe area to be in.

Wooster Street, known as New Haven's Little Italy, doesn't really have much to see outside of a few weeks in Spring, when the flowering trees look lovely. It has 3 good pizzerias, a few other restaurants which I haven't tried, and a mediocre pastry shop which I've only gone to once (a big disappointment). The neighborhood is no more charming... More

If you want to experience Italy in new haven...this is a must-visit place. The arch that opens up to the neighborhood is lit up in the italian flag colors during some time of the year. There are several italian restaurants, pizza places and at least one pastry shop (that I know of). Worth a visit.

Love the food, love the neighborhood, walking around the park and back roads. Very nice, very safe but parking is a drag.

Went to this section of New Haven to eat at Frank Pepe's Pizza - a local landmark. We were told to be prepared to wait an hour for a table. Got there at 4:30 on a weekday. No wait. Sat right down with a friendly waitress who seemed to have been at Pepe's since it opened in 1925! Delicious pizza.... More

Is it worth a visit ? Yes. Hard to find a parking spot. Only street parking. I have no idea where the people who waited 3 hours were. Yes, there are lines at Pepe's and Sally's every day. I've never waited more than and hour to 1 1/2. And that's because I always go with a large group which is... More
