My parents and I have never been to Boston. So we needed to try a local place first. Italian Express was the first on my list and it did not disappoint! Loved it! I had the ravioli with pink sauce and shrimp. Probably the best pink sauce I've ever had. My mom even asked for the Alfredo recipe! So good!... More

My husband and I travelled from NC to spend 4 days in Boston. During our trip, we enjoyed two fabulous dining experiences at Italian Express Pizzeria. We tried the Frutti di Mare with homemade pasta, the Haddock Margarita with roasted potatoes and my cousin ordered the Chicken Parm with Ravioli (homemade, 4-cheese ravs). OMG, everything was awesome, including the amazing... More

The place was not sufficiently staffed for the Saturday lunch-time rush. It took a long time before our presence was acknowledged. We decided on the steak and cheese sub and the meatball sub with a small order of fries each. The subs were handed to us over the counter as "to-go" even though we were seated and sipping on a...

Dear Amy, Thank you for your feedback. We strive to make every customer as happy as possible. That is our number one goal. We stand behind our food and would not serve anything that was not prepared properly. Sometimes, people might be used to food being prepared differently, especially if they are traveling, but we are more than open to... More

We stayed close to Italian Express and I had the Eggplant Involtini and sautéed Broccoli. It was sooo good. Appetizer but was enough for 2 meals.

I have a gluten allergy so finding restaurants that have that homey feeling and cater to my needs can be difficult. Every meal I... More

This is the real deal and the entire package. The food is fantastic. The owners make you feel like part of the family. The atmosphere is great, small and intimate and super friendly. It's like having dinner with a group of friends even though you just met. A must see place your taste buds will thank you

Awesome food! The owner was very friendly. Everything was fresh and tasted homemade. We had spicy calamari that was wonderful and pizza and veal parmigiano. We will be back the next time we come to Boston.
