TripAdvisor recently picked America’s best pizza restaurants and cities. Chicago was named the number one city for pizza, although I’m not a fan of the deep dish version of those delicious pies.

So I was happy to see that TripAdvisor listed New Haven as the number three city for pizza and New Haven’s Frank Pepe Pizzaria Napoletana, which opened in 1925, as the ninth best pizza restaurant in the nation. Here’s some old footage of Frank Pepe at work:

Sally’s Apizza, divine
too. Boola, Boola.
