One of Boston's Best Pizzerias

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.

This was one of the best pizza by the slice places I have ever been too. Slices are huge, are as big as two slices. Service was friendly and we asked a lot of questions. A must stop in Boston.

We stopped here for a slice in The North End of Boston. They have the best pizza by the slice that I had been looking for. A "slice" is really two slices for an average price of $2.50. Great deal. Small place but very busy.

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.... More
