Best Place for Pizza in New Haven for Group of 8 Including Kids
Hi, We are two families, including children, who will be meeting in New Haven for lunch on Saturday. Which restaurant offers the best pizza and has a nice, appealing and comfortable atmosphere where we can relax and take our time. Easy parking near the restaurant would be a definite plus.
Forget about Pepe's.
The OP specifically said they want to relax and take their time.....Pepe's does not encourage using the place to visit and catch up with old friends.
I can't recommend Modern. Not the ambience, but can't stand the pizza.
For a Saturday Lunch with kids I would recommend Ernie's on Whalley Ave near Davis Street or Zuppardi's in West Haven
I know Yorkside never makes any lists, but lunch time is not usually busy and I think they'd be fine with lingering. My kids (a Yalie and a HS kid) actually prefer Yorkside's style pizza. I prefer Pepe's, but I defer to them when deciding where to go.
Thanks again for your replies! We've decided to go to the Peabody museum either before or after lunch so close proximity to the museum would be nice. Modern or Yorkside appear to be the closest when I map the locations, so we may go with one of them. It would be nice to be able to park and walk from the restaurant to the museum.Thanks a lot for responding!
BruRM @ BAR is definitely a great option. MANY large tables and there's a pool table and TV for the kids as well. And in house made beer for those interested as well.
And their pizza easily ranks among the other NH behemoths.
