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.

Cheap pizza but not that delicious? Opens till late so it's good for a late-night bite. Service staff were not friendly but for the price, what can i say? Also, don't expect a great ambience. Grab, and go.

It's not fine dining — it's where Harvard students go for fast, cheap study fuel late at night. It's OK, although a bit sweet for my taste. Very authentic slice of campus life.

We liked the thin crust pizza but the Sicilian style was our favorite. Friendly and helpful staff. The sitting area is cozy but small, don't let this stop you from going, get it to go. Worth visiting!

The thin crust pizza is delicious and well priced. The tomato sauce is particularly good. Service is friendly and fast. It can get crowded around lunchtime, which is understandable based on how good the pizza is. The atmosphere is very casual-the focus is not on ambience, just on making very good food.
