Bonesse’s in North Haven: A Hidden Gem

It was my birthday weekend, and I wanted to try a pizza place I had not been to before. After a bit of research, I found Bonesse’s, which is only a couple of miles from my house and rated 4 stars on Google. I decided to be a minimalist and ordered a plain cheese.

The restaurant was located in a shopping plaza that had clearly seen better days. It looked more like a location you would find a parts store for industrial equipment than a good pizza joint.

On walking in, it was clear that Bonesse’s has not been renovated in quite a long time, and the tiny area to dine in seemed very awkward. I was glad to be getting take out.

The pizza smelled very good on the drive home and I was excited to open the box. Finally, I got home and popped the top—it looked as good as it smelled! It was hard to resist taking a slice long enough to get a good photo.


I’m happy to report the pizza tasted as good as it looked and smelled. The crust was thin, but not as paper thin as other famous New Haven pizza, and that’s fine by me. The sauce had nice Italian flavors, such as fresh oregano. The mozzarella cheese quality was very good, although not as high as other restaurants in the New Haven area.

All things considered, I would order take out from Bonesse’s again.
