This place has great slices.....and a slice is a quater of a pizza! So don't do what my husband did and order other food too! The sub I got wads ok but the pizza and nachos were great.

You certainly wouldn't want to come here for a romantic evening, or possibly even a first date, as this place is noisy! I have to say though, that this is some of the best pizza I gave ever eaten-- and I work in NYC, so that's saying a lot. The beer list is tremendous! would try each and every one... More

We just found Penguin Pizza as we were driving down Huntington. Delightful surprise - great pizza, lots of other choices, great selection of beers, friendly atmosphere, nice staff. If I lived in Boston I would go back frequently!

This joint has some seriously great pizza. I very highly recommend checking it out. Their three cheese blend is to die for.

Penguin Pizza is a fantastic spot to stop in for a slice (or a whole pizza!) with a variety of unique combinations of toppings. Their beer selection is always great, more than the regular pizza shop options. Good stuff in the Brigham Circle location!

I could write a lot about how much I love their pizza, which they have specials on slices of the day with crazy awesome topping combos. I would much rather talk about their amazing beer selection though. They've got such a variety, including all the beers I loved while studying in the Czech Republic. When I lived closer to Penguin,... More

Penguin is hands down the best pizza in Boston if you are thin-crust type of person. The eggplant pizza with balsamic glaze is incredible, as is the Tuscan Fig and Prosciutto - it's sweet, satisfying and unlike any other pizza I've ever had. They have a massive selection of beer with constantly changing seasonal beers on tap. The atmosphere is... More

Great beer - reasonably priced too! (Penguin Ale) - tasty pizza, crispy nachos, and a great atmosphere make this place a great decision no matter the mood. Just be careful it is not a hot day, or you can skip the Sauna at the gym.

We couldn't ask for a better place to hang out near by... my husband and I find any excuse to stop by. The pizza is great, they take good care of their beer lines, they always have great new things on tap, and above all we love the staff. And they seem to like their regulars a lot. :) We've... More
