We found this place on trip advisor. So glad we went here! Just off the freedom trail, this place was packed, but well worth the wait. We had arancini, pizza and spinach, cheese sausage calzone. It was beyond delicious. Don't let the line scare you! WAIT!

Tourist here for six weeks eating our way through BOSTON, a bucket list trip. We waited 30 minutes to get to the counter and it was wort it! The pizza was very good for a cheese pizza. However, we like a lot of toppings and, if that is what you like, REGINA PIZZA is the place to go. But for... More

Great Sicilian pizza with just the right amount of sauce and gooey cheese! Small menu, but all items are made with perfection. This is an old school pizza joint so, don't expect a beautiful sit down atmosphere. Arrive around 2pm to miss the lines, but be forewarned... They sell out of their calzones (spinach, especially) before then. Bring cash and... More

Total lunch with drinks was 10 bucks! No frills, just great food and great people. you can tell... More

Have been going here since I was a kid! The pizza is so good, and now my children love eating it. The Arincini's are so yummy and it's almost a meal alone, well with a slice of pizza. Great lunch place! They are only open from like 11-2 or earlier if the food sells out.

Have walked by this place many times and did not even know it was there. Went with a group and it was GREAT. If you are not here early, once they sell out of food that's IT.... Pizza is old scholl with lots of flavor, done on a sheet not round. The panzerotti was also tasty and the calzones are... More

Actually, get there early (11am sharp) to get the arancini and rolls. This no frills place retains the quality and character of the North End before gentrification. Grab it to go and head to the Greenway or Paul Revere statue (prato) for an inexpensive yet enjoyable lunch. Open only 11-2

Yes yes yes this place is perfect. Tucked away where you pass it up at first. Cafeteria style pizza by the slice. Cheap and delicious. If you are in the North End this needs to be your lunch!

This place is easy to miss but take the time to go inside and experience great italian food which is served quickly and so reasonably priced - a real gem and 3 minute walk from Paul Revere's house. Perfect place to take the kids for good tasting quick food at an afforable price. AND Mike's Pastry is across the street... More
