“its fast, cheep and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Fresh cheese pizza, not a fancy restaurant but its fast, cheep and tasty. You can eat it inside or take away, the Q is a bit long it might take 5-10 min but worth the wait.

“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is one of my all time favorite spots. We usually come here on Thursdays after a long day at the office. Space is gorgeous, service was great and the food was excellent!

“Worth every second of the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Yes, we got there on a Saturday morning at 11 and it took 31 minutes to get to the counter and order our slices. BUT don't let the line turn you away because the time will go quickly as you watch the wizards behind the counter slice the trays of Sicilian slices and dish out the calzones and the other goodies. A slice is still only $1.55 and a can of soda will set you back another $1.25. Don't be shy, figure 3 slices per person. It truly is the best tasting pizza imaginable.

“best deal in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I go here every Saturday for lunch after shopping downtown. All walks of life saunter in for the best calzone,arancini,pizza. I love the atmosphere,same decor since the day they opened;looks and feels like 1920. The people that serve and prepare the food are friendly and pleasant! IIt is a hidden gem in the heart of Boston.

“Can't Go Wrong Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This place has it all figured out. Price, quality, atmosphere (not fancy but energetic). You may have to wait a little while but they have their systems down. Don't be afraid to ask for descriptions of the different items laid out in front of you, just be ready to decide once they tell you. They have lots of people to feed behind you in line.My suggestion - Join the crowd and see for yourself what everyone else already knows.
