THE best pizza crust ever!

I am a definite pizza snob and this place delivered. This is not the fanciest restaurant in the North End but the Pizza is authentic Neapolitan. They have a wood fired oven that does a fantastic job on high quality pizza dough. When this pizza was delivered to my table the crust snapped like the... read more

Every time I have guests visit from out of town I take them to Antico Forno. It is so good! Especially the pizza. There's usually a bit of a wait but it's worth it, and you can hang out by the back bar drinking sangria while you're waiting.

Our last day in USA was dedicated to our favorite place: North End Boston! After walking we decided to pick a random restaurant to have lunch. We had couple names but when we saw Brick Oven Pizza we knew that that was the place. we order a Caprese salad to start, and it was great. It was a mix of... More

This restaurant never fails to deliver. we have eaten there on five occasions when visiting Boston from the UK. First discovered it following a walking gastronomic tour of the North End in 2009. Ideally suited also if you are hungry and can't stand the wait for Neptune Oyster ! Seafood linguine and chicken parm are excellent. Great value for money... More

Aside from not honoring reservation this packed casual ltalian eatery delivered a wonderful meal. Not for quiet dining experience but great for families, large portions. Pasta was perfect al dente, generous seafood came with it. risotto appetizer is a meal itself so split it. Pizzas looked awesome.

Pleasant summer afternoon dining place with wide open windows to quaint Salem Street. What's better than some Chianti or Proseco with good Rigatoni and Lasagna. Gave us a little vibe of Italy.

The service was friendly, the location, just blocks from the old North Church, the Pizza and the Meatballs were delicious. My own personal rule is I never order meatballs or meatloaf in a restaurant, but I saw the meatballs brought out to the table next to ours and they looked and smelled great so we ordered some along with a...

Wow, started out with the meatballs for appetizer. Absolutely wonderful! Great taste and just the right size. We had a couple of pizzas for dinner. We are from the Chicago area, so we think we know pizza. This was GREAT! The sausage and red sauce was wonderful and the veggie pizza was also great. The crust tasted like a light... More

Our party of four, celebrating our friends' anniversary, made a reservation through Open Table for 6:00 PM. We were seated about 10 minutes after 6:00, and enjoyed excellent food and service. To make the reservation, I had used a $50 gift certificate, and when the bill came and we tried to apply it. We were told that we did not... More

If you don't have a reservation, and told your wait is 35 minutes, expect that to be an hour. The Poletta appetizer which is two large meatballs and salad was excellent. I think I have had better Margarita Pizza elsewhere. Service was good. Very large pour for wine. Very noisey.
