Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana
Frank Pepe’s is a classic pizza institution in New Haven’s Little Italy, and it has a friendly rivalry with Sally’s Pizza down the street. You’ll usually find a small crowd of tourists on the restaurant’s Wooster Street sidewalk, all waiting to try a New Haven-style apizza, which features only a thin layer of tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. Frank Pepe’s isn’t our favorite New Haven pizza spot, as the cook on the crust isn’t super consistent, and we’d rather sit through a long wait at Sally’s. Go here only if there’s an absurdly long line at Sally’s, or if you simply must try every pizza option in town.
