OK - So I'm not a huge pizza afficianado--not a die hard critic by Chowhound means. To give you an idea what I like, as for New Haven, I am a Modern lover. By work, I like Giove's in Shelton. I like Fresh ingredients, thin tasty crust. I was so excited to hear that Michaelangelo's (also of West Haven on Route 34 that had a fire and reopened) recently opened up a branch in Milford on the Post Road, between Jeep Dealership and Chili's, where Mr. Sizzzle (may it rest in peace) and Legends formerly was. When we lived in West Haven, we often got our pies at Michaelangelo's or Dayton Street. They don't deliver. My husband picked up two small pies tonight, so I didn't go there personally, but the pizza was just as I remembered it in West Haven. So great. We got a well-done sausage (crumbled style), roasted pepper and onion, and a boring pepperoni that my husband said was awesome. I hope those of you who love and critique pizza give it a try if you never have been to the West Haven branch. The crust was incredibly good--thin, chewy, some bubbles but not burned. A little floppy in the middle like a NY-style pie but holds up nicely near the crust. Another nice bonus is that Milford also sells Italian pastries like West Haven and other bread, antipasto items. I told my husband when he left, if they have sfogliatelle (my favorites), bring me back one--he brought back two--such a good man, plus a couple chocolate dipped cannoli for himself. The pastry was yummy. Tommorow I'll heat up my extra one in the toaster oven--great. I hope this place survives in this location. So please go and let us know what YOU think. My husband said there are informal tables inside for dining in. THey also offer catering, and lots of specialty pies.
Also Papas II opened up near Milford Hospital--that'll be the next pizza I try since I like the original in Devon, but I think my husband is re-hooked on the more local Michaelangelo's, so it'll be hard to get him to try something else.
