Today is a big day for pizza lovers, as Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana is opening its first-ever Massachusetts location on Wednesday in Newton.
The New Haven, Connecticut-based pizzeria was rated the #1 Pizza in the U.S. by The Daily Meal. It is best known for its iconic White Clam Pizza.
The family-owned restaurant was started by Frank Pepe in 1925 in New Haven, and is co-owned by nine of his relatives.
The new location at The Shops at Chestnut Hill (formerly known as the Chestnut Hill Mall) on Boylston Street will be the eighth Frank Pepe Pizzeria. It also has locations in New Haven, Fairfield, Manchester, Danbury, West Hartford and Uncasville, Connecticut, and Yonkers, New York.
