When part of your group wants pizza and some want main courses, this is the place to go. This is not my favorite pizza of the three, but it’s better than most. However, the chicken parm is great! Half the family got pizza, half got...More

Modern is my personal favorite when choosing New Haven pizza. The shrimp white pizza is amazing. Sausage and mozzarella yum and I'm looking forward to trying the margherita pizza after my vacation in Rome.

I really really love my pizza, and my favorite style is thin crust Italian. If that's what you like too, then you won't find any better - anywhere - than at Modern Pizza in New Haven. The flavors of just the crust, cheeses, and sauce...More

Though "this place has the best pizza" are fighting words in New Haven I think Modern is one of the two best pizza places in New Haven.......maybe the best!

We have eaten here on numerous occasions as it is one of our favorite pizza restaurants in New Haven. Bacon/onion and the veggie bomb are always perfect. Worth the wait.

Always a point of contention, the best pizza in New Haven. In my opinion, this accolade goes to Modern Apizza. The pizza is cooked in a wood-fired oven, the sauce is nicely spiced and the toppings first rate. The only problem is getting your pizza...More

I enjoyed the pizza, but I don't really understand the hype. It's like most brick oven pizza I've had before. It's good, but not overly special.

Don't let anybody say they have the best pizza unless they are from New Haven. PERIOD!!!!! I've had pizza in New York. It's nothing special. I've had deep dish in Chicago. That's a pie for real. But thin crust Apizza (look it up) comes from...More

This place is always crowded, parking is nightmare, but the food is worth it. We ordered the white clam, Italian Bomb and a small anchovy. The toppings are fresh and delicious and the crust is perfection.

I love Modern the best out if all the New Haven pizzas. It never disappoints and they work hard to get you your pizza fast even though it’s busy.

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
