I've eaten at Pinocchio's several times and have never been disappointed. It's a unique local eatery that serves a wide variety of delicious Sicilian slices. You can't go wrong with the cheese steaks either, I usually get one of each. Affordable for the area as well.

What this locally-owned pizza spot lacks in ambience, it makes up for in pizza. This is seriously the best pizza I have ever eaten. The crust is perfect and the toppings are fresh. Then the price point seals the deal. Worth twice the price - don't miss this!

the best pizza slices out of Italy. All types of pizza are delicious and the prices are fair. We also ate the classic steak & cheese sub. Divine! In short, we found the paradise of the palate. highly recommended

It was a cold February day in Boston and I had taken the hotel shuttle to the Harvard Square area, not really knowing what to find or expect. When I stumbled upon Pinocchio's, just down off of one of the main streets in the area, I found a small restaurant with character. There couldn't have been more than 10 small... More

The only pizza they had at lunch when I went was the Sicilian, which is just local version of a pan pizza. It was hot, cheese was gooey, sauce was sweet. Not bad food, just nothing remarkable. I'd eat here again, but wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to go here.

Nobody mentions the subs. I had the steak with onion sub and enjoyed it very much. A real comfort food. Simple food but a treat to the taste buds.

I was skeptical going here on a friends recommendation, because I typically don't care for the thick Sicilian style pizza, but this has completely changed my mind. Nothing special on the inside, but amazing pizza at a great value.

In my opinion, the best pizza served in the area around Harvard Sq. A typical pizzaria with nothing particular when it comes to the design of the store. Yuo better take your slice of pizza and enjoy it by the Charles river.
