Even in New Haven, a city filled with world-class pizza places, Modern is a standout. Their pizza is thin-crusted and comes out of the traditional brick oven perfectly done. Pitchers of beer and Foxon Park soda complete the ritual. They've been here for decades and the wait to get a table is well worth it.

As locals and natives, we know the best pizza. Modern is usually our first choice. No matter how the long wait, it is still quicker than Pepe's and Sally's because they have a better system and at least act like they care about their customers.

Been here a million times. Nothing beats this pizza. Not only is the pizza irresistible, but the staff is friendly, fast, attentive and the place is clean. I think the longest wait I've ever endured was 25 minutes, maybe. I think we usually avoid Friday and Saturday nights so can't speak to the wait time on those days. If you're... More

Everything is perfect for the ultimate New Haven pizza experience. In my estimation, the ultimate pizza experience anywhere on Earth. Yes, I've been all over the world sampling pizza and yes, there are amazing places out there, however Modern stole my heart 18 years ago and has not let go. Nice, casual, old-school, family environment with awesome local beers (beer... More

This was my first trip to Modern Apizza, the top rated pizza place in New Haven. Not only are they the top rated pizza place, they are the top rated restaurant in the city, no mean feat for a pizza joint. The line was on the sidewalk-the door guy kept a list for the wait of 45 min- 1 hour,... More

For those who get New Haven Pie, this place seldom disappoints. White Clam Casino, Mozz, or the Italian Bomb.

Four of us dropped in for lunch. We ordered two medium pizzas, one white, one red, each with 1/2 of one topping and 1/2 of another. The pizzas were perfect, the service was great. It was more pizza that the four of us could eat.
