Pepe’s Pizza of New Haven ranked number 9 by TripAdvisor

NEW HAVEN, Conn (WTNH) — If you live in or around New Haven, you know there is a sense of pride when it comes to Pizza. One that primarily comes to mind is Pepe’s, which comes in at number 9 on a new poll by TripAdvisor. The top five U.S. pizza restaurants according to that poll are:

1: Julian’s – NYC
2: Pizza Time – Florida
3: Moose’s Tooth – Alaska
4: Keste – NYC
5: Tony’s – California

News 8 photographer Tom Parrant talked to one of the seven grandchildren of Frank Pepe’s pizzeria, Gary Bimonte. Bimonte says he is honored to be on TripAdvisor’s list. He states:
“We try very hard to keep our standard of pizza high. We’ve been here for 90 years, this year’s our 90th anniversary, we’re always committed to giving a quality product at a reasonable price.”

When asked if he was surprised that Pepe’s did not make the top five, he responded:
“Everybody has their own opinions, the internet could be a good thing and it could be a bad thing, as far as we’re concerned it’s a good thing, once they try our pizza, they’ll know who the best is. I want to thank everybody who voted for us.”
