A couple years ago, my dad and I went on a quest to find the best pizza place. Final decision was Pepe's. We get Pepe's pizza for birthdays and other celebrations, and we still have a joke that "it's not pizza, it's Pepe's". 😂

Ordered pizza for pick up from this location many times. The pizza taste and quality is consistent. The service has been friendly and appreciative of business.

Some nights we want pizza.....half of us like that other place, the rest of us like Pepe's. So we switch each time we go, one night Pepe's one night that other place! Pizza is good thin crust just the amount of sauce cheese and toppings. Cooked until golden brown you can't beat it!!

Great pizza, similar to the New Haven location. Sometimes there's a super long wait to get a seat and call 30min in advance for pick up.

Stopped by for a late dinner and came away fully satisfied. Pizza's and salad's only served here, no pasta or heroes. We shared a small Caesar Salad and a small pizza with two toppings and were full and had no leftovers. Friendly server. Will dine here again when in the area.

A friend of mine suggested we try Frank Pepe's pizza, To me it tasted like the kind of pizza we used to get in school. It was a plain cheese pizza and I was not impressed. We must have a least 150 pizza places in the Manchester Area. This is not one I would want to go back to EVER.... More

To eat at Pepe's, you have to understand the tradition. Frank perfected the art of pizza by cooking with coal in 1925. This pizza is anything but normal or a traditional pie. It is thin, well done and slightly burnt. There is a lot of flavor in the slight burning. Again, non traditional. It is an original style, just like... More

Some of the most creative combos. The clams and bacon, who would have thought of such a mix but my friend, Bob, was tremendous. Big pies served by a friendly, dedicated and long term crew. Recommend highly!

Great pizza - as good as Naples. We had the sliced tomato and cheese which was a seasonal specialty. The flavor just popped and it was baked perfectly (thin but chewy dough). It was so good, as soon as we finished, we ordered a simple pepperoni pizza - again one of the best we had outside of NAples and for... More
