Modern Apizza Restaurant Review

: While Modern Apizza may not be as renowned as some of the hallowed parlors down on Wooster Street, you'll find no shortage of New Havenites---who take their pizza very, very seriously---swearing that the pies served here are every bit (and bite) as good, if not better. The joint may be wanting in the looks department---it's as unassuming as they come---but it compensates with what matters most: taste, from crispy, cheese-laden garlic bread to overstuffed calzones. Still, brick-oven pizza is the main event. The choose-your-own toppings are pretty basic, but we're enamored with seafood-smothered specialty pies like the clams casino---a white pie charred black at the edges per local tradition (but it never tastes burnt) and heaped with clams, peppers and thick, juicy whole strips of bacon.
