Best Pizza Anywhere. crust, sauce, delicious! we bring all our own of Town guests to New Haven and Modern.
simply the best – Modern Apizza is hands down the best pizza I've ever had. That includes all the pizzarias in New Haven and New York City (Sally's, Lombardi's..ect). Everything about it is perfection. Hot damn. Im getting hungry just thinking about it.
Best Pizza in New Haven – Modern has the best brick oven pizza in New Haven. The crust is the right thickness, the toppings are cooked to perfection. The pizza is always hot out of the oven. I reccomend the Veggie Bomb or the Itailian Bomb pizza. FABULOUS!
Take out tip – Modern has the BEST Pizza in the area. I've lived in the area for over 25 yrs and you can't beat it. The crust is just the right thickness and cooked to perfection. The sauce has the right taste and consistancy. Whenever I have friends or relatives in from out of town or business contacts visit from other countries we always end up at Modern at least once.
If you get it to go my tip is to ask for it to be slightly under cooked and not cut(for better handling) then when you get home or wherever, just pop it in a hot oven till cooked to your liking and it's like eating it at 874 State St. I've taken it to PA. and R.I. several times and it always reminds me of New Haven. Try it grilled too!
Excellent brick oven pie! – I come from upstate New York where we like our pizza juicy & thick crusted but after living in New Haven for 4 years, I can say this 'za is growing on me. Yes, there are lines but they aren't as endless as Pepe's and Modern supposedly has the oldest brick oven of all the New Haven institutions.
Very experimental varieties - clam seems to be a local fav - and you must always request mozzerella. Pizza so thin you could eat half the pie and my #1 suggestion is to ask for it cooked lightly. Most locals don't care that the crust is so charred from the 700 degree oven that you can't eat it but that seems wasteful to me. Decent salads and they offer a local soda, "Foxon Park." Offer up grinders and other entrees but their pizza is still Pres. Bush's favorite.
mtwitty – Modern IS the best pizza intown!! Great service, great pizza, great times. There is minimal wait time which makes it all the better!
CT's best – Growing up in CT you take the food for granted, especially good pizza. Since I moved away, no where can beat the pizza in CT, especially at Modern. Best pizza for the best price. I try to get there every time I get back to CT. I even got my wife and kids hooked on it!
The best PIZZA – The place for the best pizza and value, service. Try it, and you will know you had the best!
