My family and I congregated at Frank Pepe's after receiving the news of a family member's passing and the pizza was worth the 10 minute wait for seating. It was piping hot and delicious.

Being from NY, it is hard to find good pizza, and this did it for me. I have gone back repeatedly and have taken my NY visitors there as well so they can try it. Awesome pizza

4 large pizzas, w/anchovies, mushrooms, pepperoni, clams n garlic toppings were very delicious and tasty that you could even eat the whole crush. The price very reasonable and the staffs are very kind and helpful. Everybody is hoping that we should get together again at Frank Pepe's Pizza Napolitana. And take note, each time ex-President Bill Clinton visits CT he... More

Best pizza in New Haven, similar to pizza Imhad in Italy. Finest ingredients, perfect blend of spices. The tomato pie is the original!

The restaurant was very busy. We had a fun dining experience but the pizza was just average. Wait time was approximately 20 minutes.

Pepe's is the benchmark for great pizza. It is the quintessential New Haven pizza. We have been going there for years and the quality is consistently excellent. We always compare any other pizza joint to Pepe's.

Had a nice lunch there Friday. Had to wait about 15-20 minutes but it was worth it. It is that good. Their man Toce was on top of all the seating and made sure it was all moving very efficiently, so props to him. This was my 18 month old daughters first time eating here and she gave it a... More

Great pizza, decent atmosphere - you can watch them putting the pizzas into the oven and the coal that heats those ovens is bright orange. Super delicious flavor combined with a perfect crunch (we got the clam - better cold- , a pepperoni, and a fresh tomato - first day of the season!)

First trip to Pepe's, so had to try one of their signature pizzas. My wife didn't like the idea of the clam pizza, so we got the spinach. Very good pizza, with a "just right" crust and we all really enjoyed. Next time, we'll get the clam.
