Good Value

Stopped by here on a food tour of the North End. The slices of pizza are huge and a very good value. You receive a quarter of a pizza as one slice for about $5. They cut the slice in half and you really end up with two pieces of pizza. We also sampled the arancini which was quite good.... read more

Went to Ernesto's with a party of 8. Ordered two pies, which arrived quickly and were delicious. This is the kind of pizza I hope to eat any time I travel to the East Coast. Excellent, friendly service. The place is small, but we were able to score two tables. I would highly recommend Ernesto's!

My husband & I went here today as he was craving pizza, so I googled the best pizza in Boston and this place popped up so we decided to check it out. We got there and its very unassuming, a few tables and chairs, for grabbing a slice and/or a whole pie. They had at least 20 different flavored slices... More

This is THE place to go for a slice or two. The pizza is great and when you're on the go it's perfect. Don't go for a chain. Go for Ernesto's! Lots of choices and lots of good Italian grease. Real pizza!

Quincy Market on a Saturday afternoon was crowded and noisy. Our group wandered around the area, asked questions and found our way to Little Italy. Our patience was rewarded when we saw Ernesto's, a narrow and simple restaurant. They serve HUGE slices of pizza. The (sole) server was patient with us while we hesitatingly placed our order, despite the long... More

Stopped here after getting hungry touring the Freedom trail. Lots of locals picking up pizza so you know they know something. Friendly guys behind the counter, slice pizza not very hot but lots of choices. Being from Chicago, I have had better but we ate 2 giant slices each (3 of us) for less than $20! I would come back.

I tried 3-4 different pizzas from this restaurant and I enjoyed them all. Maybe not that fancy place to stay but the quality of food is great!

I've been going to Boston for a good few years and there is so much to take in that you can never see or do or eat everything in a short amount of time. Anyways on my recent trip to Boston over the holiday weekend I wandered my way into the North end like always. As with any nice weekend... More

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.
