Great take-out pizza and steak tips

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

We traveled to Boston for the weekend, and decided to just stay in and order pizza. We asked the bell boy downstairs at the hotel and he suggested this place. I am so glad he did!! We got a deluxe pizza minus the anchovies and let me tell you it was DYNAMITE!! My husband went to pick it up, it... More

We were in Boston this weekend and got take out pizza from Santarpio's in East Boston. This doesn't sound very exciting but is a unique experience. To get your take out pizza you have to go in a side door that takes you right into the pizza kitchen. You wait and watch while they make the pizzas non stop. How... More

Go to Boston often, so decided to try their best pizza, according to review. Place was very run down, which was expected, but I thought the pizza would overcompensate. It was okay, but could name a dozen places in CT that are better. Too much sauce, not enough cheese. Crust not very tasty either. Boston is great for restaurants, but... More

Santarpio's is a Boston institution. It is a 100+ year old, family run establishment in a working-class neighborhood in East Boston. This isn't some artisan fluff at a Millennial gastro pub. This is classic Old World goodness that The Bambino himself probably ate. At Santarpio's, they focus on making great pizza and avoid complicating their menu with other food. The... More

There is a continuing discussion of the relative merits of Santarpio"s pizza in E. Boston vs. Regina's in the North End. From time to time, purely in the interest of public service, I try Santarpio's to determine if the gap is closing. While Santarpio's makes a pizza to be proud of, it remains in second place. Go early on a... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon at 2pm and had to wait outside for a table. Didn't wait long as there were only 2 of us, but it was well worth the wait. Lifelong Boston area resident who had heard of this place, but never took the opportunity to try it out. Would definitely go again. We ordered a cheese... More
