The north end in east Boston...

Where do you begin? After stumbling across this place one evening on a walk through the neighbourhood, we thought we'll have to see if they have a decent pizza. Little did we know....the moment you walk in, you're greeted by two of the nicest guys, that make you feel right at home. The pizza... read more

I feel very lucky to live only 2 blocks away from this gem. Food is delicious and we try to order a different item every time we go, but it's hard to stay away from the chicken parm. I also love their pizzas, the best one in town hands down. Don't forget to order the meatballs as appetizer and do... More

I'm not sure what all the hype is about except that Italian Express somehow wound up on Diners, Drive-In and Dives. The pizza is mediocre. Their salads are bland and the subs are middle-of-the-road. They have gotten my order wrong on a few occasions but at least they're friendly and their prices are reasonable. It's very convenient if you're in... More

Wow, this review can not be for real! After looking at all of the other reviews from this person on Trip Advisor, it appears they rated 4 restaurants on Feb 8 in Boston. Then they rated 33 restaurants on Jan 17 in Boston. And the trend repeats itself for their previous reviews. It's all negative, they don't mention anything specific... More

Had it delivered to my hotel. Cheese pizza was really good. Nice thin crust. Delicious sauce and cheese. BBQ chicken pizza was equally as tasty.

Best Italian food I've had in Boston. Saw them on the Food Network recently and they definitely lived up to the hype. They have a great menu and the prices are reasonable. Clam Scampi Pizza is one of my favorites. Also the Chicken Parm and Ravioli is amazing. There portions are huge. If you are looking for authentic Italian food... More

My friend invited me out for dinner on a cold Monday night. We were in a mood for something warm, homemade, authentic and gourmet. Italian Express was the choice to go! Boy, let me tell you, the food was amazing! They have a huge selection of pasta dishes, as well as pizzas(obviously), salads and subs! There is something for everyone,... More
