Pizza, pizza, pizza.....

Ordered a plain and pepperoni, BOTH were excellent with a great crust. Pepperoni was flavorful on the spicy side, red sauce was just right tangy, very good seasoning. Quick service for takeout-with tax came to $33.

This is my favorite out of all the pizza places in Boston and surrounding area. I usually get the plain cheese and tomato sauce, and it's heaven. The flavor is out of this world. The crust is perfect. Normally I don't eat the end crust of anything, but I make an exception here. I've tried the other pizzas here with... More

Best crust I've ever eaten! No kidding! Amazingly good pizza. The place is tiny and busy so it's not someplace you're going to hang out and enjoy a leisurely meal. The food is good. It's reasonably priced. What more could you want from a neighborhood pizza joint?

This was great for cheap pizza in Boston. It was awesome and the portion sizes were huge! It doesn't have a ton a seating, and despite being quite busy everything moved very quickly. I would definitely go back!

It is a little hole in the wall restaurant that you might just walk right by, but stop into enjoy their well prepared and delicious pizzas. The ingredients are fresh, the sauce and crust are delicious, they are generous with the toppings and the pizzas are cooked perfectly. You can go over to Hanover St to a restaurant with all... More

5 minute walk from Faneuil Hall Marketplace will get you a weighty slab (they call it a "slice") of really good pizza, at economy prices. Great selection of pies, you'll wait only a couple of minutes for your order to be heated up. Seating inside for roughly 15-20 people, but there are places to sit outside if you wander a... More

Ernesto's is my favorite place to grab a slice in Boston for 2 reasons. 1. Their slices are HUGE! 2. They take Credit Cards, which is incredibly uncommon for the north end! In a town where Regina is queen Ernesto is KING!

This is a small, simple,neighborhood pizzeria that never disappoints whenever we go. They always have a good selection of slices, quick service and a good ambience in the shop. The pizza has a great crust.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
