Great pizza

This place has phenomenal pizza. I recommend the pepperoni, garlic, and peppers pizza. Also, the sausage and lamb plates are a must. The staff are super friendly and awesome. I will return.

The pizza wasn't as good as I was expecting and our waitress was quite forgetful, meaning we had to wait 40mins for our pizza. Great to visit an iconic place, but one visit was enough for me.

Absolutely the best pizza I have eaten. I had thought New York Pizza's were the best until I tried Santarpio's. Everything was right, the sauce was perfect and the crust was crisp and the corn meal dusting of the base gave the crust a very special texture. The grilled skewers of meat were also very tasty. The place is very... More

Would never have known this place existed, but for the suggestion of a local. Even then, without being able to follow him there, I am not sure I would have found it, but you should go. It's pretty basic, no thrills and probably not been decorated for at least 30 years, but who cares? The food is what matters. I... More

Cozy, not fancy, cash only, family restaurant. Pizza was some of the best that Ive had in the US. It tastes roasted and had the right amount of everything and the crust was good! Very affordable. Defiantly worth finding when in Boston. Adding this to my "must go" list when im in the city.

We have been coming to Santarpio's for years. While the menu is very limited, the food is always good and the prices are reasonable. Great neighborhood place for casual dining.

This restaurant is unpretentious but serves the best pizza on the East Coast. As famous in Boston as Tom Brady, Santarpio's has photographs on the walls of every celebrity that matters from James Gandolfini to Steve Schirripa so it's not surprising when you taste their pizza. Great service tops it all off and they have great meat skewers too. Don't... More

This place is ultra casual, cash only, and has phenomenal pizza. Oddly enough they also sell kebabs that look and smell delicious (i did not try them). So if you have a hankering for perfect thin crust pizza and perhaps also a little turkish kebab this is spot on. Staff is friendly.
