Good basic pizza, and the steak tips are really good. Portions are just right, and the house salad dressing - while every simple - is also very good. Not a ton of atmosphere (it was formerly a Bennigan's) but the food is the draw. We got there around 5:30 on a weeknight, and there were plenty of seats available. It... More

Very good food and reasonably priced. We loved the lunch special. 7.99 for a pizza, salad and rolls that were terrific. If we lived nearby, we'd definitely make this place a regular stop. --We we had this at home.

As newcomers to the North Shore, everyone kept telling us to go to Santarpio's. One day, my daughter and I stopped by. The atmosphere was OK. All they had to offer was pizza and salad. And the pizza was not very good. If they had more on their menu we would consider a return visit. We won't be back.

Just mediocre, after all I heard about the place it was disappointing. They don't serve any desserts :-(

The pizza tasted pretty good not the best I have had. The place was old and dirty but a cool atmopshere. My family and I went for a late lunch and shortly when we got back to our hotel we all got so sick. Needless to say I will not be going back sadly, even though the pizza tasted pretty... More

No frills just good food. Limited menu but what they serve is very good. Steak and lamb tips with salad,best known for their pizza. Family owned with two locations. Bring your ID if you want a drink ,they do not serve without it no matter how old you are. Give it a try

We stopped here with our 13U baseball team for dinner after a long day in Freeport, Maine and what a great stop it was! The pizza was amazing, the staff was excellent and the atmosphere was family friendly. I would recommend to anyone to stop on by and have some pizza here - you won't be disappointed!!!

I like the East Boston Santarpio's, and I was excited when they built another restaurant in Peabody. The pizza is soupy. The service was not good. Their tips tasted like chalk. I have been a member of tripadvisor for quite some time, and I think this is my first review where I rated so poorly. I will not go back... More
