Zeneli Pizzeria e cucina Napoletana 138 Wooster St, New Haven Pizza • $$
138 Wooster St, New Haven

“My friends and I were in Wooster Square looking to get Sally's, but found that it was closed for maintenance. Then we walked down towards Pepe's but there was a line around the corner so we skipped out on that one too. That's when we saw Zeneli just across the street, looking a bit bustling but only had about a 10 minute wait. I had heard great things about the place so we decided to give it a shot.We were seated within a quick 10 minutes of arriving despite the high volume of traffic flowing in and out of the restaurant. Service was highly personable and attentive, never letting us be without water for our duration of the stay. Food came out less than 10 minutes after we ordered it, fresh and piping hot. The Margherita pizza is one of the best I've ever had, with some of the freshest tasting tomato sauce I've tasted. I couldn't believe this place wasn't busier, though we were there at around 3 PM on a Saturday. My friends raved about their pizzas as well, both of them getting versions with various meats on them, such as the diavolina that had a spicy salami on it, which was delicious. Overall, can't recommend this place enough. Truly delicious, authentic Italian cuisine.”

“Went to Consiglio’s for the first time on a Saturday night. It was very lively, and we had a reservation.Our table wasn’t ready yet, so we got drinks at the bar while we waited.The atmosphere is very homey and friendly. It is clearly a neighborhood joint, not exactly casual or too upscale.Everything we ate was flavorful and tasted very fresh. They had a good number of specials for the night as well!There were a lot of birthdays when we went, so when announcing a guest the restaurant would gather together and sing. I thought that was a nice gesture.Overall, I highly recommend giving this place a shot next time you are in New Haven!It is on the same street as the famous Frank Pepe’s and Sally’s Apizza.Parking: Across from the restaurant there is a free parking lot (2nd on the right)”
