Thin crust pizza with plenty to choose from. The service was friendly and fast. We went for a business lunch with out of town employees to treat them to New Haven pizza. Small parking lot, look for on street parking.

There is Modern, and then there is every other pizza joint . It's not even worth discussing. If you don't like waiting for pizza, get it to go, or, like interstate 95, don't go when you know it will be busy. Now you know 87%...More

New Haven has a lot of famous pizza places; unfortunately, there is a lot of hype. Go straight to Modern Apizza. Modern may have the best pizza in America. Don’t be intimidated by the line, put your name in and relax. It is well-with the...More

There’s always competition amongst the new haven pizzerias for best in the world, the country, the state, the city, etc.... They are all good. But in my opinion, Modern is the best. Check them out.

I don't believe they take reservations and the parking could be a problem for a large group unless you carpool. There is a very small lot nearby and there is on street parking. Depending on when you go might have an impact... More

Not on campus, but there are many that are. Most will go to what's closest or to one that delivers. There are many & different styles too - like Greek style pizza with thicker crust vs thin crust. It depends on where you are... More
