Love the burnt, cheese is pretty damn tasty and it’s heavy on the cheese. Cheese to bread ratio is perfect imo. I ate almost a quarter of a pizza by myself. Normally I can only do half and this was an 18” pie. Does not compute how I ate so much.

Insanely good. First pizza of the day. Crispy crust on both. Half pepperoni pie had tasty sauce. Clam pie as delicious as described and service also great.

Margherita. 8.6. Good crust, no flop, tremendous flavor for the sauce, light & airy. Very solid pizza!

This was amazing. Crust was crispy and fluffy… not overly thin but still had bite (think English muffin). Taste was amazing… only issue was it was abit greasy. Had this held back on the drip… it would have scored higher. Major points to the outside staff also. Great service, so friendly and fun. Great to point out other local spots to try.

I personally have disliked this pizza ever since it got new management. Tastes like vomit.

Great tasting pie. Cheese and sauce were perfect just a slight bit of flop though.

Reallllllly thick and doughy. Ingredients crush, but I think dough/cooking portion was off

I grew up about 20 minutes north of New Haven, and I always bristled whenever I’d see Pepe’s listed as “The Best Pizza Place in the U.S. or World” in some food publication. Although, some priggish locals tend to overcorrect this billing by acting like above-it-all, contrarian snobs by defaulting to the hispterish opinion that Pepe’s is not worthwhile. Those people are fools. Pepe’s is great for its utility. They do toppings well, and regardless of what you order, it will be a very good, if not great, pie. It may not live up to its hype, but it is still a very good establishment, and if you’re new to New Haven/New York/New Jersey pizza, it will be a very enjoyable experience. TL; DR: It’s one of the few tourist attractions that justify the wait, but if you’re in New Haven, Sally’s, Modern, and Da Legna are my recommendations.

Really good, classic New Haven style pie. Great char and crust texture. Not in league with the pie I enjoyed at their Yonkers location though. This medium sized pie seems to have thinner crust overall, which wasn’t an advantage.
