NEWTON (CBS) — For more than 90 years, Frank Pepe’s in New Haven, Connecticut has been considered one of the top pizzerias in America.

Their new store in the Shops at Chestnut Hill has been busy since the day they opened, with classic tomato pies and their famous white clam pizza fired in a large coal-fired oven.

Right next door, Morano Gelato makes some of the region’s tastiest and most authentic Italian-style ice cream, in flavors like Pistachio, dark chocolate, and creme brulee.
