In my opinion, Modern is simply the best. My personal favorite is sausage and pepperoni with mozzarella and red sauce, but a great alternative is broccoli and salami, on a white pie. If you don't feel like waiting in line, they always answer the phone...More

New Haven pizza is the best and Modern is one of the top pizza places in New Haven. Whether a local or coming from out of town, stopping by Modern is a must to either eat in or take out.

Though wooster street pizza parlors get all the praise..go to state street for the best pizza in new haven. If your coronaries can take it enjoy the Italian bomb. Fresh tomato is great...but always had a great pizza. Enjoy!!

The Modern is a great place, though parking can be tricky especially in the tight lot at the back. Friendly service and terrific pizza are the hallmarks here. It's not frowned upon to order your pizza "underdone" if you don't like it their charred style.

Not on campus, but there are many that are. Most will go to what's closest or to one that delivers. There are many & different styles too - like Greek style pizza with thicker crust vs thin crust. It depends on where you are... More
