Driving from Boston to New Haven yesterday we thought we'd grab lunch at Rein's in Vernon--until we saw the line with at least 40 people queued up waiting for a table. No problem, since they have pizza (or apizza) in New Haven, we just moved on. The first attempt in New Haven failed: Modern was closed for reasons that are... More

Walked in off the street before a Yale hockey game. Decor was average but the food was very good. Caesar salad had perfectly and thoroughly coated lettuce of manageable size pieces. Croutons were very tasty. After salad, we enjoyed a pizza with flavorful sauce and perfectly cooked sausage. Great experience!

Four diners, two pies. One 18-inch with Italian sausage and black olives, one 12-inch with anchovies. Both absolutely delicious. With drinks the tab came to $54 before the tip. The staff was welcoming and very efficient. Abate's is a worthy competitor to the more well-know Pepe's and Sally's of Wooster St. The only drawback is that parking is tight. But... More

We came across this place the way a number of people seem to -- the line was too long at Frank Pepe's. If I lived nearby I'd be a regular. They serve great New Haven - style thin crust pizza in a restaurant that looks like the decor hasn't changed in years. I really liked it. There seemed to be... More

The pizza is superb. Finally a Margherita made right. The greek salad was excelent and the have a very tasty homemade vinaigrette. Onion ring were cook to the point. The stuffed eggplant had a great flavor but could do better without the philo paste.

This place is a favorite of my husband. His dad used to live around the corner and they would come here frequently to get loaves of bread. I actually had our parents first meeting here. They have great food, at good prices, and large serving sizes.

Stopped on our way home specifically to eat at Frank Pepe's and get a Tomato Pizza (seasonal and advertised on billboards for miles around!). We had a party of 10 and saw people standing outside their establishment and was told the wait would be an hour--that's not gonna work with 4 kids!!! A half block further down the street was...

Service was fantastic everyone was nice and very attentive. The star of the show was of course the food. For appetizers we got a side of meatballs and a side of sausage and New York style calamari with the hot peppers. We got the red sauce on the side. It's much better that way to keep the calamari crispy. Calamari... More
