Pizza is coal fired and always fantastic. Even when there is a line, it is worth the wait. A Connecticut icon, the best pizza in the US!

The pizza is great here. Waitress was friendly. Be prepared to wait because they are a busy place but it's worth it

Place was unbelievably crowded on an early Monday night. Fortunately, their huge, specially built oven was up to the task. Unlike most regular American pizza joints who rely on Mozzarella for one of the toppings, this restaurant grates its own blend of Italian cheeses to...More

The pizza was the best. Very thin crust and it was cooked perfect. You can't go wrong with any of the choices they have.

We tried the Shrimp and Bacon Pizza. This is very good thin crust pizza (bacon makes it all good, right?) however you will have to decide personally if it deserves the “Best in America” accolade.🤔

We were traveling through the area and decided to try Frank Pepe's. It became very busy while we were there. The staff handled the crowd well. Salads and two "small" more medium from my experience pizzas were quickly brought to the table. They were very...More

I would not go there for a rehearsal dinner. Unless you had the place to yourself you would not have a privacy. I think there's only the 1 open dining area. They do have great pizza but unless they give you the entire... More
