Italian Express is a small family-run place in East Boston that has consistently fresh and well prepared Italian food like mama used to make. Don't miss the award winning desserts prepared by the owner's brother. They are terrific. We always make a stop when going to or from Logan Airport since it is only five minutes away and we are...

My husband, my son, daughter in law and I visited Italian express on a Monday night after trying to find a new restaurant between our homes on the North and South Shore. We expected it to be good as it was featured on Diner, Drive-ins and Dives. But what we got was much better than even we expected. The owner... More

I went to Italian Express with on of my friends who had never been there before. We received service that was top notch. I had never experienced service like this at a restaurant before. The prices were extremely reasonable and because there was a slight delay with our appetizer the owner himself brought meatballs with homemade marinara sauce to our... More

We found Italian Express Pizzeria on Trip Advisor and called to see if they could accommodate 12 weary travelers who were hungry including one child who has a Gluten intolerance. They said no problem, come on down. We made the short walk from the Embassy Suites Logan Airport to find a setting for twelve all ready for us. (What's great... More

I've lived in the north end for 2 years and this place easily compares if not surpasses the food and atmosphere of any restaurant on Hanover street. Cozy place, friendly staff, and food is amazing!

For those who haven't recently been or have never been to the Italian Express Pizzeria in East Boston, the food has been perfected. The owners are turning out some wonderful dishes, including a truly superb Chicken Parmigiano, and Ravioli and Frutti di Mare. The restaurant's atmosphere is classy but, at the same time, almost Mama like. This makes eating at... More
