On the Boston board I started a thread about where to go for our Italian night while in Boston...Al Dente, Santarpio's or Regina. This elicited much lively debate about the merits (or demerits) of each place. As stated in the original thread, we eventually ended up choosing Regina a week ago Friday and it was AWESOME!! I went so far as to say it was the second best pizza I had ever had.
With that very positive experience (and tasty pizza) under our belts, we eagerly anticipated our trip to New Haven and Modern Apizza. After all the hype of seeing it on a number of Food Network shows (Man vs. Food, etc.) we figured we were headed for pizza nirvana. How wrong we were. I have to say, I don't recall ever being so let down by a pizza in my life. Especially after all the anticipation. But this apizza thing was nothing short of awful. The crust was mushy, floppy and just plain bad. The sauce was salty (I was still tasting salt for the rest of the day) and the cheese and toppings were only so-so. People on the Boston board wanted us to post our thoughts, comparing the pizza at Modern to Regina. But to even begin to compare this slop to Pizzeria Regina is laughable. Needless to say, Pizzeria Regina was our hands-down favorite and Modern actually ended up being the most disappointing meal of our nine day trip. Too bad...we had such high hopes.
