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.

My husband and I visited Boston Feb 22-25. We were taking a tour of the Harvard area and saw someone with a slice of pizza that looked simply deeeeeelish! My husband asked the guy where he got the pizza and he pointed us in the direction of Pinocchio's. I'm telling you...I'm not a pizza lover by any means but just... More

this is a very simple and small place frequented by Harvard students and a few celebrities like Ben Affleck and Mark Zuckeberg. Their pizza is really good and not expensive. Good place for a snack and a daily chat with your friends

We are pizza junkies in Boston and have had everything from Santarpios to the tenderloin pizza at Mistral. This is just good old Neapolitan style thin crust pizza. I'd almost like it to Joe's in Greenwich Village. Not an atmosphere like Picco or Del posto to sit in and eat but great for pizza night take out

My husband and I ordered from here on a whim because we were both craving Sicilian style pizza. We wouldn't know about this place if it weren't for the USA show, Suits, where they talked about "the place for square pizza in Harvard Square." We gave it a shot, and we were blown away! The slices were huge, super fluffy... More
