Hidden Surprise

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... read 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.

Typical college pizza shop with slices on the ready but nothing but typical. We were here for a few days and went here three times! Great pizza! Probably the 2nd best I've ever had (homage to franks in Wyandotte, michigan). Quick, friendly, cheap ... The list goes on! A must if you are in the area. Get a few slabs... More

I wandered around the area for a while before I could find this joint. Quick service, but the pizza was a disappointment. It wasn't bad, but the reviews led me to believe it would be special. It's a reasonable value for decent pizza, but not worth the trouble of finding it.

This hidden pizza joint was a great find on our recent visit to Cambridge. It's old-school and definitely not fancy, but the pizza is delicious. It was the perfect comfort food after a long week of traveling. Their specialty is Sicilian pizza, which boasted a crispy, not overly-thick crust, and just the right amount of sauce. Compared to some of... More

This was a great find. It's a little hole in the wall place that is kind of hard to find, but the pizza was really great. Their specialty is Sicilian pizza, but don't worry if you don't like Sicilian pizza - we don't and we still loved this! It is Sicilian, but it is crispy and not so thick. Can't... More

The Tomato Basil Sicilian style pizza is the best. I crave it all the time. The sauce is amazing so it makes the normal tomato and basil combo outstanding. The atmosphere is great. I love the value here as well. Best pizza ever.
