So much choice, and all so tasty, a small joint but packed with flavour. At $5 a huge slice you can't complain!

It's hard to find a really good, high quality plain cheese pizza. This spot nails it. Cheese is perfect, plenty of flavor. Sauce is a little sweetens really flavorful, crust is crispy and delicious. Perfect blend. Loves it.

I went to Ernesto's one Saturday afternoon with my husband at an off-time and received the most awful atrocious racist service from the staff and from a customer who appeared to be a friend of the staff. When we first entered the restaurant, it was empty except for the staff and one person who was talking to them who looked... More

I was urged to try this pizza place, so since I had some time from landing at the airport and going to my destination, I planned to stop here for dinner. It is a small but very busy place. I didn't realize the huge pieces are cut in two but considering one, so I ordered 2! It was so much... More

Ernesto's pizza were the best pizza I have ever had. The pizza wasn't that expensive. It is located 5 minutes from the Old North Church and 5 minutes from Haymarket Station. If you go to Boston go to Ernesto's Pizza.

Sorry I'm spoiled by NY pizza. Couple of friends recommended this pizzeria. Hole in wall type of place. Plenty of pizza and slice choices. Crust was good but a little soggy on the margarhita pizza. My daughter had the regular and loved it.

Read my review of Regina Pizzeria if you want to know how they are. Ernesto's on the other hand is hands down the best pizza I've ever had. The place is tiny and casual but the pizzas are massive and flavorful. Don't even bother going to Regina Pizzeria because it is horribly over-rated (the pizza was average, service was bad).... More

Free tours by foot stopped here and it was a great choice. Nice crunchy bottom on all the pizza, and a huge selection. Slices are huge, 1/4 pie for $5, and they taste great!

The Eggplant pizza with ricotta cheese was one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Crust wasn't thin but it had a crispness to it that was great. Soft crust! Shared half of a slice of the caprice pizza too. It's good but I liked the eggplant one much more. Big slices! Only go there hungry!

It doesn't look like much, and has only a few tables,but it has the best pizza in north end. One slice is 1/4 of pie. Take it outside in a bag if nice weather and eat in the park.
