Growing up in NEW HAVEN (Westville) we had it made as kids, our family always phoned in an order to EARNIES for " All MOOZ, half pepperoni" and another "All MOOZ and sausage" To this day even though most of the family has relocated elsewhere...More

Ernie's has been our family's favorite pizza place for many many years. It is easily as good as the more famous New Haven pizza restaurants and much easier to get into. They are nowhere as well known as they should be but maybe that is...More

My favorite new Haven style pizza! Whenever I'm away, I always come back home craving this this crust crispy deliciousness. And if you're lucky, they give you a tootsie pop as you leave

Been a fan for years. Great for take out or eat in. Don't expect a 20 minute pizza on weekends, expect a quality pizza, that's why if eating in, call ahead. Quality takes time and each pizza has the personal touch of the one and...More

There truly are no words for how much I adore/crave/dream about Ernie's pizza! Not initially from CT, it took me years to come around to the thin-crusted, brick oven-style New Haven is known for and this one leaves the Wooster Street institutions in their dust!...More

Best New Haven Pizza, love it better than Modern. It is more flavorful and consistent. Sausage pie is my favorite. Give them a try if you are in westville.

A cousin of mine has brought us here several times, and it's become a real 'go to' for us since moving to Woodbridge. Being from Brooklyn, NY, I'm a bit of a pizza snob, so we're happy to have found this little gem.

Ernie's is a classic. Been around forever - I've been going there for nearly 30 years. The pizza is always consistent and always delicious. Nostalgic place to take the kids for pizza - like traveling back to the late 70's early 80's.

Have been ordering pizza here for quite a while and NEVER disappointed ! A true hidden gem in Westville, please note if you think Papa Johns, Pizza Hut and Dominoe's is good pizza then your taste buds don't deserve ERNIE's !!! That is All
