As an Italian living abroad, finding a pizza that I like is never an easy thing. Upper Crust in Brookline was a great surprise: they make a very good pizza, thin and crispy. Ingredients are fresh and you can choose toppings from a decent sized list. Personnel is friendly and professional, the manager also spent some time talking to us.... More

Being from Jersey, and really knowing, good thin crust pizza, this place is the best!! Have never had good pizza outside of the metro area,,don't know what these guys are doing, but apparently they do!! My daughter, who now has relocated to Brookline, loves the "slice of day" or the "slice of the week". The only draw back for me,,... More

This is our family's favorite grab-a-slice pizza joint. I especially like the slices of the day with their Caesar salad. Hmmm, I think I've just made a lunch plan.

We are New Yorkers and expect great pizza. This place was off the charts. The crust was perfect and the toppings very fresh as were the salads

They got a bit of a rush and ground to a halt with many people waiting. An off-duty employee had to jump in and help. My pizza sounded like it would be good (buffalo chicken) but the crust was black and some was unpalatable.

When seeing a film at The Coolidge, it is extremely easy to grab a bite at The Upper Crust. I have eaten there many times and my only concern is that often times, the crust is not fully cooked and is gummy. I would NEVER allow that to keep me from frequenting this place, however. It has happened only a... More

Nothing fancy here. This place reminds me of the pizzerias my parents took me to in the 70s...only now you can get whole wheat crust! Wholesome ingredients, grungy atmosphere and fantastic service. We had a salad that was fresh and tasty, excellent pizza with ricotta and real sausage. Great music, good people watching. Go!

My favorite is the BBQ chicken. Crust is thin and crunchy, just the way I like it. It's a must have whenever I am in Brookline!

The Upper Crust, mainly a pizza takeaway but with a few tables where you can eat your pizza inside, a bit tatty but good service, helpful young lady took our order and explained the ropes, and very delicious pizza, $33 for a 14 inch pizza , filled two of us and a drink each (beer and wine) including tip.
