Definite Must Try!

Fantastic pizza! Huge slices but they are happy to cut it in half for sharing. We went on the recommendation of a food tour; it could easily be overlooked as it is very small. Some of the best pizza I've ever had!

They had really great pizza, not much else, but what more do you need! Sold by the slice or by the whole. Sitting available inside and out. We visited the Assembly Row location, very clean.

Awesome food to end a great trip. After finishing our touring day at the north church, asked the staff there for a pizza recommendation. They quickly recommended Ernesto's. The place was tiny; but, the food was excellent. Great atmosphere and a lovely neighborhood.

Our relatively thin-crusted Chicken Ranch white pizza with Ranch dressing, Mozzarella, Bacon, Onions and Tomatoes was excellent; the crust was flavorful. The slices of this specialty choice were very generous for the price ($3.50, compared with $2 for Ernesto's conventional choices). The service was friendly and patient considering the busy-ness of the place and the choices described.

Stopped in for a slice as part of the Boston Pizza Tour. This is home of the largest slice of pizza (our sample was 1/2 the usual slice but plenty). I loved the pizza. Had the plain cheese pizza but lots of other choices. This is a small place in the North End with a few tables (our group of... More

Sorry NYC, you don't have anything on this place! Huge variety, huge slices, huge value! They are a little place though, always busy with only 8 tables or so, so be prepared to eat outside or take it to go.

Great pizza by the slice! We ate at the Somerville location. Huge slice ( one slice equals 2 1/2 slices). Daughter had the cheese slice after going to Lego Discovery Center. This location is not in trip advisor. What a great find! They are open until 9 during the week and 11 on weekends.

We had the picture bacon tomato chicken onion oh my god good pizza. A slice was twice that size!!! We all loved it. There's two little café tables out on the sidewalk to set. They serve beer and wine. How can you go wrong? The great pizza stop on your food tour of Boston.

Nothing on the menu except thin crust pizza, but what choices! The cabinet contained about 15 different toppings but plain ol' cheese was just fine for me. You get a quarter pie served as 2 large slices from $4-6

A decently priced pizza joint with a product line that equals Reginas without the super long lines . Located right on Salem Street, probably the most European looking street in the North End. You can get slices( 1/4 of a very large pizza) ranging from $4-6 depending on variety.
