NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)-- Pizza has been a staple in New Haven for about 100 years, but did not make the cut on a top ten list of pies across the country.
A slice of pie put New Haven on the pizza map. But, Trip Advisor left it out of a top ten cities for pie.
"That's unbelievable. I've lived in New York and I think this is the best pizza," said Heather Klaven.
"New York's got great pizza too, but so does New Haven. It's delicious," said Roger Kenny, New York.
"I've eaten pizza in other places and I think we probably have the best pizza. Plus we have such history with it," said Ralph Delucia, East Haven
Lou Abate knows the history of Elm City pizza.
He says he also makes his pizza just like they did in Naples, Italy.
Frank Pepe brought it to Connecticut in the 20's, Abate's father worked for him, and then opened up his own shop.
But all this was looked over, trip advisor says the top spots were determined based on the highest average rating by city for all restaurants that serve pizza on their site. San Diego came in first.
"We're known all over the world so why New haven was passed over is just an indication that whoever did that survey didn't know what they were talking about," said Abate.
It just means more for us.
"I say let those people eat crow, we'll eat pizza," said Abate.
