Attention pizza fans: Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana (Pepe's, for those in the know) is preparing to open their 8th restaurant, this time in West Hartford, CT. Pepe's, an institution in the pizza world, is third-generation owned and operated—the first location opened nearly 90 years ago in 1925, in New Haven, CT.

The new restaurant will be located at 1148 New Britain Avenue in Elmwood (a neighborhood of West Hartford), where no doubt their classic coal-fired pizza oven will take center stage at their mid-September 2013 grand opening.

As Pepe's continues in expanding their ever-growing empire, we welcome any thoughts from our readers—on the original, the newer locations, or anything else on your mind!
