I don't get it...

I have lived here my whole life and don't (to this day) understand the line outside the door for this place. So I eat the pizza (I live right down the street) and it's never so good I want to wait for it. I am a Bianchi's girl I guess... THAT is the best pizza available. My second favorite would... read more

I'm a pizza snob. I eat pizza at least three times a week. I also travel all over the U.S. and have eaten at hundreds of pizza places. Santarpio's is one of the best pizzas I have ever had. The only place better, which is very similar to Santarpio's, is Filippi's Pizza Grotto in San Diego. Everything about the pizza... More

TA has finally disappointed me. Although the sauce and cheese makes the pizza here tasty, the crust ruins the experience. They over cook the pizza and you need to break or crack teeth to eat the crust. The other reviewers that say it compares to the much better North End competitor are delusional.

I think this is a great stop on the way back to the airport for those traveling and visiting Boston. It's old school in many ways, and you need an open mind as the place has been there a long time without getting a face lift (good or bad, depending on your view). Get a pizza. Note that there are...

this is the best pizza in boston. only Regina's in the North End can compete with it. what sets them apart is the extras. try the lamb with peppers and a carafe of wine. it gets busy in there so first timers might want to try a weeknight, but the wait is worth it

Went there late w a friend since we are new to the town l, despite the fact that many told us not to go bc of how rude they are. The older guy at the register was extremely rude and annoyed that we were even there. Was super rude to my friend. We turned around and went elsewhere. One of... More

If you like good pizza, this is the place. I visited the location in East Boston. Simple choices (just pizza), friendly staff and reasonalble prices. The East Boston location only takes cash so be prepared.

Great service, good food and not expensive take-out food and open seven days a week. It's located just down the road from the Embassy Suites at Logan Airport

Old school Boston pizza joint located in East Boston near Logan. The pizza is delicious and authentic. The meat kebabs are also great. Definitely check this out. Do not that this is a cash-only place.

This is one of the best pizza's I have ever had and the reason is because of the amount of garlic that they put on the cheese and garlic pizza. If you love garlic, get this pizza! The sauce is amazing and when you can see the chunks of garlic sitting on the pizza, you know it's going to be... More
