“Truly amazing pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

It is true: you have to line up to get in. We waited 40 minutes. It is a crazy thing to do of pizza, but once you taste it, you'll understand. The place is small and the staff are run off their feet, so when you get to the front of the line they tell you where you are going to sit.

The pizza crust is thin and super crisp. The toppings are delicious! They also offer a garlic and chili oil which you can drizzle over your pizza to add more zing.

I didn't think the staff were rude at all, as some commenters have suggested. They're extremely busy and despite being overworked, I found them to be quite nice.

The next time I'm in Boston, I'm setting aside an evening for Regina's perfect pizza.

“Atmosphere great, pizza average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

A must experience in little Italy for the old neighborhood feel. Staff was efficient, but we felt a little rushed as it is a popular stop. As this was our first experience in Boston, I can't give it the title "The Best". The outer crust was great, but got soggy towards the center. Glad I went, but will look for a new experience on my next visit.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Just go and find out for yourself. Location, atmosphere, and very nice pies. Is it the best pizza? I don't know. It's just really good.

“Great authentic pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Went on a Friday night - madness trying to secure a table - had a group of 14 so split over two tables but nothing that couldn't sort out. We had to wait maybe half an hour for a table. Grace isn't the strength of this place (they had to climb over our table to turn on the a/c) but its a great diner style pizzeria.

“Best Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This was the best pizza I've had in years. We went back a second time before we had to leave Boston and the pizza was as good as the first time. Everyone in our group (7 of us) agreed that it is number 1 in our book. The service was excellent and very friendly and the atmosphere was what you'd expect of a long time established corner restaurant. Can't say enough good things about Pizzeria Regina!! If you love pizza, make sure you go here!
