This tiny pizzeria in the North End looks unassuming. You might walk by without noticing it if you didn't go to Salem Street looking for it, which I recommend that you do immediately if you like pizza. This is the real deal. I love pizza, and sometimes when I find a pizza I like I tell others it had a... More

An excellent thin crust is hard to find in the south but not in Boston. I truly wish you could deliver to the ATL!

We like so many others wandered about the north end on a lazy Saturday. We popped into this place and the choices were endless. Slices were very tasty, very fast, prices were reasonable. I think it's worth a stop, I'm craving some now.

This is a quintessential Boston Pizza joint in the North End. It is a busy place for good reason. A slice is actually two thin crust slices dripping with flavor. Fold it in half and enjoy.

Walked around the North End all afternoon and looking forward to some good pizza. Stumbled across this place and decided to try it out since it wasn't busy (this should have been a big hint for us). The slices are quite large; however, wasn't impressed at all by the taste. My daughter did really like her pizza but I did... More

The pizza itself wasn't bad. It just wasn't memorable. If you just are looking for a quick bite to eat, Ernesto's is a good option. But if you are looking for great pizza, look elsewhere. We ate here after wandering around Boston all day and ending up in the north end that evening. We wanted pizza and this was the... More

Walked over here after a trip to the Aquarium with the family. We ordered two pies - one cheese and one bianco. We were lucky to find a table open to seat the 5 of us as there are only a few tables in the restaurant. The pizzas were served in minutes - hot, crispy and delicious. Best pizza that... More

Came for lunch and was sad that I did! We love pizza- we have roamed all around New York eating great pizza so I was really looking forward to eating pizza in the North End of Boston. But I guess we picked the wrong place- true the slices are quite large- so if you are going for quantity over quality... More

Been coming here since I was in college at Wentworth. I can still remember finishing up morning shop classes, grabbing a few friends and driving to the north end to pick up calzones as they are coming out of the oven. Best. Not a ton of seating here. I often take food to go and go sit in Christopher Columbus... More
