Pepe's Pizza in Fairfield ,CT.......can I say flavorless!!!!!!!!
My partner and I were driving by here today and said hey,let's give it a try. It was 1:30 in the afternoon and they were kinda slow. We immediately sat down and within about 10 minutes had our pies. I had a small mushroom and he had small broccoli and chicken. Boy oh boy we were both really disappointed! Both pizzas had absolutley no flavor whatsoever. They were both bland. We even sprinkled on lots of the parmesan from the shaker but that didn't help at all. The sauce was flavorless too. And the crust on mine was a bit doughy. I don't think we will be going back.

I have to say that we tried the new Pepe's in June and the pizza tasted pretty good. We had a white clam and regular cheese with peperoni. I grew up eating Pepe's in New Haven and I honestly could not tell the difference.
My only complaint was that we ordered two IPAs on tap and whatever they gave us was not IPA (tasted like Miller). When we complained they replaced our beers with a couple of Sam Adams. Other than that, we were happy not to have to wait in line in New Haven.
Thank God I am not the only one who "doesn't get" what the furor is over Pepe's. Dry crust, bland sauce, nondescript cheese...and the white pie is like eating salty garlic bread with canned clams. This goes for both New Haven and Fairfield. I'm sorry folks...I tried! More than once I might add. Letizia's is very good. I also enjoy Colony Pizza.
Rumor has it that Pepe's is still in an expansive mood, now looking in the direction of Storrs and the University of Connecticut campus.
Thanks for the backup Fairfield Foodie and Elizzie!!! All my coworkers think I am nuts for saying what I said but there are local pizza places here that are better than Pepe's. Thanks, Richie
