Great cheese and sauce. Not too much char on the crust. Not taking points off for the flop because the other person i was with wanted bacon and powering so the flop and grease was expected. Great server too!

Ok, this my last of the BIG 4 to have. I expected a lot from Modern and it delivers. The sauce is distinctive, cheese is a medley of several blends and it gives the pizza a really unique taste. The crust is soft and chewy in places but burnt and crunchy where it counts. This is New Haven pizza and why it’s pizza capital of the USA. My score is the same as Dave. Sally’s is still my favorite but Modern is 2, Pepe is 3 and Bar is 4.

Ok, did a New Haven Pizza crawl, Modern was our first stop and it did not disappoint. The place is awesome, the vibe is old school, our waitress was great. She has been working there for 36 years, she was engaging, good story teller, funny and just added to the overall awesome time. The pizza was delicious, def try their sausage it’s incredible. Perfectly cooked, tasty you as soon as you take the first bite it hits ok New Haven pizza is a def different. We will be back.

Really terrific. A very well executed pie. The pepperoni is beautiful. Beautiful like a woman. Spicy and hot. Like my women. Cowgirls fans would faint like baby girls, Commander fans need to be on parole, Red Sox fans banned for life.

Very good, it’s world class. Cheese has more funk than Sally’s or Pepe. I don’t think the dough is special but the sauce and cheese are top notch. Just know the cheese is not subtle. The tomato pie without mozzarella has a strong cheese flavor that overpowers the sauce. Bonus review- pepperoni is perfect. 8.6 In the words of Michael Jack Schmidt, Phillies third baseman and member of the 500 home run club, “That’s a fine play.” In all seriousness, I was very impressed. Giants fans stone cold mortally forbidden to go here.

Alright so few things. I was able to try out the 3 different style of regular pies Mozzarella, plain and margherita. Let’s start with the mozzarella. It was very underwhelming. Too much cheese crust was floppy and doesn’t taste anything special. It’s ok but it’s not great id rate that a 7.3 in my book. Next I tried the plain. Now this is the way to go! Nice sauce good flavor with a sprinkle of parm on it. Crust was cooked real good nice and crusty and tasty. A tad salty from the parm but not too bad. Overall this was the best score. 8.3. Next I had the Margherita to go which I had the next day. Much better than regular mozzarella. I think it is a solid 7.8 pizza. Real tasty. Good basil flavor but a tad too greasy. Crust wasn’t as crispy as I’d like but that could be because it was in the box. I also had the clam pie which was really flavorful definitely a recommend. This is a solid spot, it’s not better than Sally’s but it’s a good 2nd place.

The crust, the cheese, the sauce- spectacular! The best pizza I have ever had to date!

Not very crispy all the way through, just on the crust. Very good overall flavor though.

Very very good, but wouldn’t drive to New Haven for this pizza. A bit too greasy and just a bit too much flop. Sauce to cheese ratio was off by a hair. All and all very good tho

Used to be my favorite in New Haven. Surprised by the flop. The Birch Beer is amazing.
