Late night pizza

Traditional heat and eat pizza freshly made great toppings glass or 2 of wine. Honest good pizza with a crusty base. Busy shop which means pizza is always fresh.

SO GOOD! I enjoyed this place and felt the pizza was on my top 10 for sure. I would suggest people try this place out and go with a big appetite.

If you buy a slice you get a third of large pizza. Nice place for a quick bite or take out. Only place I tried for pizza in the north end but they are friendly here and have a good selection of pizzas here. The crust was more towards thin than thick. It would seem that locals like this place... More

Absolutely delicious pizza! And portions are huge- it's as big as two slices from any other local place for $4-$5!! Will definitely come again!

This is a sweet place. I've been coming here since it opened decades ago and it is still delightful. Get a slice of the right pizza for you and you will be filled with joy and filled up. Crust is perfect and the variety is amazing. For a quick bite or a longer visit, no one can touch this place.... More

One slice of pizza is a quarter of a huge pie. Very good value for the amount of food they provide. The space itself could use some updating, but who cares what you are eating in when you are consuming one of the best pieces of pizza you may ever experience in your life. Voted best pizza of Boston, you... More

A friend from Boston took me here on our tour around the city for a quick lunch. The place is small with not a lot of tables. The pizzas are premade and then heated once a slice is ordered. I had the chicken, bacon, and ranch pizza and I don't know if it was my hunger saying this, but it... More

We stumbled onto this place a few years ago (a desk clerk told us about it, actually) and knew that if we ever went back, this would be a stop. The pizza is better than most in NYC (even though that's its style), with slices so huge that you might want to order one and see what you get before... More

First of all, there really isn't any seating at this restaurant. However, friends had been told that this was a great place to eat pizza so we decided to try it anyway. Since there were 6 of us, 2 of us females waited for patrons to leave one of the large tables outside. Once they left, we sat at the... More

After roaming the North End for a few hours we stopped in for a late evening slice of pizza and were very surprised by the quality and size of the slices. The crust was thin (my fav) and not heavy on the sauce. The buffalo chicken pizza had just the right amount of "pow". Good, cheap eats. This will be... More
