Good Pizza by the Slice

I was looking for a quick pizza place in the North End and found Ernesto's. Very good pizza by the slice and friendly staff. Two HUGE slices and a drink cost $8. If your in the neighborhood and looking for a quick bite I recommend Ernrsto's.

Great pizza, huge slices, terrific place to stop by when hungry and you want a quick bite. We live in the neighborhood always direct tourists to Ernesto's.

A shuttle driver suggested a stop at Ernesto's Pizza as the best pizza in town. We made a special trip on a Saturday evening to give it a try. It is a tiny store on a very narrow street. Tables and chairs line the walls, and the customer line goes up the middle. When you order 1 piece, you actually... More

We asked a local where they ate.....we were not disappointed. Yes, the pizza is pre-made earlier and warmed as you select. Very authentic.....stone baked, very tasty, lots of pizza for the $.

The crust is good. Same as with the sauce. I can't find great pizza in Georgia. So many great pizza places in Boston to get a slab.

Multiple of choices of pizza by the slice. Service at the counter very casual but underlying value great, as the slices are large and the dough and tomato sweet like they just arrived from sicily. Not for a long seat down, but great for a quick break in this gorgeous part of town. A few beers and soda as drinks.

You've got to try a slice from Ernestos, but be warned the SLICES are HUGE. one slice is TWO slices anywhere else. I made the mistake my first time here, ordering 3 slices and then finding out it was like 6 slices anywhere else (Half a pie!) . The pizza is amazing though and the guys at Ernestos are awesome....

Pizza by the slice. A Slice is are really 2 slices of pizza. We had eggplant and cheese. It was delicious with a crispy crust. Great sauce flavor! Will definitely go back!

Nice job for a casual pizza place. Fast service (full pie was done like... "instantly"). Nice toast to the crust. The red sauce they use on the cheese pizza (and some of the other pizzas but not all) - best in the business.

Had "a slice" of cheese pizza, which is a quarter of a big pie and the equivalent of 2 slices at just about any other place; great value for $4, good crust, but the taste isn't exceptional; was hard to find very casual pizza places in the area that offer slices, so Ernesto's saved the day in that regard (went...
