Modern is the local go-to, the people’s ah-beetz. If you’re into a surf and turf feel, the Clams Casio pie is the move. It has clams, bacon, peppers, onions, and whatever else is in a Clams Casio (trust me, it is bomb). There isn’t anything not to like, unless you hate everything that is good and pure about American Freedom ™. Modern’s Meatball pie is also incredible. It’s sliced like a sausage and cooked to a light crisp. If you have a table of at least four, get this and the Clams Casino. You may feel like you’re dying a little on the inside, but that’s a piece of your soul reaching ever so closer to heaven. As they say, there ain’t no sweats like the meat sweats.

Second time here and better than ever! Ate half and drove 2 1/2 hours home then reheated and it was still outstanding. Great flavor!

The best pizza I’ve ever had. This is about as perfect as a pizza gets. Def the best in New Haven.

Just fantastic pizza. 9.2 is not an exaggeration, this particular pie was excellent and staff were on top of their shit. Bonus points for using higher quality sausage on the sausage and peppers pie.

This one had a great taste but the cheese was falling off everywhere when u picked up a slice, but crust was nice and crunchy

Large half cheese, half hot cherry pepper, an IPA and a T-shirt, $50 and change +tip Pros - Charred up like you’d expect in New Haven. Decent sauce to cheese ratio and it’s a little greasy but has good flavor to it. Very good crust Cons - It was great but I wasn’t blown away, which you expect when the bar is set so high. Verdict - This is the top New Haven pizza for a lot of people so it’s been atop my to-do list for a while. Was hoping this pizza would be the best I ever had but it’s near top 10

modern is great. i actually think their puffier crust might be BETTER than Sally's - the airy charred bits on it are fucking spectacular. tomato sauce is just average tho, whereas with Sally's it blew my mind. also cheesier, which could be good or bad depending. fantastic pie, but would NOT get the plain here

Ordered a half mozz half pepperoni pie. Nice thin crust, slightly charred crust, and I could fold the slice. Not soupy. Great pie!

Amazing pizza. Great service. A little soupy on the sausage side but still great.

New haven style at its best. Great sauce, a little sweet. Burnt crust in the best way. Highly recommend when in New Haven!

The pepperoni was awesome. Best I’ve ever had. Crust cooked great. Right amount of sauce. Great pizza

Very good pizza. Not the best I’ve ever had but really good. Ate in the restaurant so it was fresh.
