Went to P's last night and found out there are (yet again) new owners. The food was so-so, but what was really sad was the waitstaff. One elderly woman who seemed not to know where things were and had to ask people behind take out. Bread served without plates or butter, bread seemed reheated more than once, we asked for... More

Don't know what happened last evening but we had the worst pizza ever!! Perhaps the driver delivered our pizza last, on his delivery route, but our pizza was soggy, limp, and so very unappetizing. The flavor and toppings were way off, the cheese was cold and congealed, the texture and flavor of the cheese was not high quality, which made... More

Another Italian Restaurant, ho hum. But bite the bullet and go with my North Shore Ladies Meetup group. But the event organizer knew what she was doing. This place was full of surprises. It is divided into two sections, one a takeout and the other a dine-in. It looks pleasant enough but as a group, we had two lines of... More

This is a small restaurant tucked away in behind Parellis optical. The food is tasty and you get ample portions. Entrees run around $10-12. Meatballs are firm and have great flavor. Sauce on chicken parm had taste of green peppers which I personally don't like , however it was fresh and had good consistency. The eggplant parm was very good.... More

Owner has a restaurant in the North End, you can bring your own alcohol and ambiance is basic but OK. This should transate into authentic Italian at reasonable prices. But the food is bland -- we have been there a half-dizen times and tried many dishes. Just bland.

Pacini's is a very casual place serving Classic Italian & modern dishes, as well as, pizza, calzones, & paninis--inconsistent cooking, but generous portions & value. Service is also inconsistent over the number of times we've dined there: the waitstaff is so busy, but personable, knowledgeable, & very accommodating. However, sometimes they are too busy or forgetful. Among a few dishes... More

Service is very good: the waiter is so busy, but personable, knowledgeable, & very accommodating. It's a very casual place, but good food & value. Among a few dishes that really piqued our interest, we chose Beef & Four Cheese Rigatoni. Good, however it was too salty one time & we think we'll try it w/a different pasta. They cook... More

Huge amounts of cheese on everything that congeals when food cools down, undercooked pizza. Tried it a few times. Agree with urbanspoon and yelp, not that great.
