The food, drinks, service and desserts were all splendid. A great local place to have a leisurely meal, relax, enjoy the company and good food. A real treat. Pretty much anything on the menu was terrific. My wife had pork, our friend had salmon and I had seafood ravioli. All were home runs.

Frank Pepe sells , Coal Fired Pizza, salads, beer and wine. That's about it but that's about all they need. The Pies can be topped with just about anything but I go for the Sweet Sausage, Onions, with shredded Mozzarella and a red sauce. Many other folks like a white clam pie, no matter what topping, this is the best... More

My wife and I have eaten here before, as we have at the original location in New Haven. The pie here is just as good as the original, and we also had a small pepe salad, which was just as wonderful as the pie. Our server was very nice and made sure we were taken care of. Our pie had... More

We were craving a cheese pie and a salad. It's a simple meal, but Pepe's elevates it to another level! Their pizza is just the best. Period. Normally I like their salads, but this one was doused in dressing. Next time I'll order it for the table with dressing on the side. Otherwise, it was a fantastic meal and the... More

I had first pepe pizze in New Haven, it tastes great! The one in casino is still good. But the Danbury one sucks!! First visit, the pizze was burned, so they have to re-mak it. Second visit, clam pizze was watery, so the crust was soft and not fun to eat at all, we had to send it back. Wont'... More

Pepe has the best white clam pizza I have ever had. Their other pizza are very good also. It is definitely worth the trip.

Sometime last week I stopped at Pepe's late afternoon for a take out pizza. I couldn't wait to get home to eat a slice, so I get to the car opened the box to find a half burned pie inside. They were nice enough to make another without fuss. but while I was waiting. I observed the manager kill a... More

The pizza here is known nationwide. Fantastic, coal-fired, thin crust. But the service was lacking on my latest visit. The waiter failed to bring our beverages for our salad course - we had to ask for them after our pizza arrived. Worse, it was the wrong pizza. We asked for the fresh tomato pie and we received a regular tomato... More

I love great pizza and that's what I expect from Pepe's. Pizza here in Danbury was styled the same but didn't cook as well. I'd still recommend it way over most other pizzas but it's not at the same level as the NH location.

Hey the pizza is delicious. That isn't the only thing you have to do right though people. I don't get the " but it's tradition" excuse for serving 8" slices of pie on 4" plates, or how about the no napkins except what the server brings, or how about the refusal to place pie servers on a tray of hot...
