Man, I’m a Pepe’s fan, read my more detailed reviews of their other locations. But…I’m not of their mootz pie, particularly this one. Lemme quickly review here: So it was cool I got seated at The Spot™️ with the original oven. But I feel, looking at what some other folks got, it was so busy Saturday afternoon, my pie was underbaked on the bottom and unevenly baked on the top. I feel like they were churning them out and I got the short end of the stick. However, my friends also ordered a meatball and ricotta and the excellent sausage and mushroom pie, which were baked better. I give those an 8 and 8.5, respectively. 7.5 on the mootz.

Probably one of the worst pizza I’ve had. Overly greasy and no flavor at all. Decided to eat here because of the one bite reviews but I was definitely disappointed.

The New Haven King. The crust was immaculate. Undercarriage? On point. Flop? Non existent. Cheese and sauce combo? Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Basil? Steve Kerr game winner.

This is surprisingly the best in New Haven. Cheese, sauce, basil and crust is exquisite. Loved every second eating this pizza. Must come to the original the other locations in the country are not anything like this one. P.s. walk to the building next door and go to Libby’s pastry for a cheesecake 10/10.

One of the best. Good char on crust but has chew, great sauce salty No flop Loved the brown on the cheese. I would be a regular here if I lived here

Great undercarriage, good crunch, taste leaving something to be desired. Very oily. Feels over hyped.

Very good pie. Sauce was elite and had great undercarriage and crust. The thing that kept it from approaching the high 8s for me was the pepperoni distribution was a little wonky even though we loved the flavor and thickness of the pepperoni. The way the pizza was cut there were several slices with no pepperoni at all.

I don’t get why these reviews for Frank Pepe’s are so high. The clam pizza is good, the best I ever had?? And they cut the pizza like a kindergartner!

A little too much grease from the amount of cheese added to the pizza. Overall, excellent taste, great undercarriage, amazing crust, only thing negative is the grease that comes with the cheese.

Literally the perfect pie. It looks thicker in the pic than it is. No flop. Great flavor. Perfect char n crunch. Incredible pie. Slightly better than Sally’s on flavor. Elite pizza.

Amazing crisp, char flavor phenomenal, absolutely delicious. Sauce could’ve been tangier but still exceptional

The White Clam Pie is worth any road trip. Drove 7 hours and well worth the drive.
