“I love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The pizza, the atmosphere, the staff are wonderful!! Just the other day, I went in for drinks and dinner with friends and the bartender who I hadn't seen in awhile remembered that I loved soda water. I didn't even have to ask!! I love places like that. I also love that they have gluten free pizza that is so yummy.

“Best pizza in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Have been going to Jimmy's since they opened in 2011.

It is the type of place where you walk in and everybody is welcome. You could be dressed up or dressed down. You will feel a sense of belonging.

You can have sitting at the bar, a local blue collar guys, sitting next to some CEOs and a couple of socialites and everybody is having fun. Very rare scene.

Their pizza is the best we have in Boston! The end.
Can't wait for the patio to be open.

“Love the truffle + arugula pizza.”

The pizza is good. I love eating here in the warm weather when they open their facade and have and open air restaurant. Service is okay, mainly come here for that pizza.

“Typical bar food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Nothing earth shattering about typical bar food and a little pricey for what it is. The service was friendly but that's probably the only good thing about this place. I would rather spend the extra few dollars to go to The Abbey next door.

“Good pizza in the neighborhood.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Jimmy's is a really nice spot to kick back with a beer and some pretty good pizza. It also happens to be the best watering hole in the neighborhood to catch whatever game is on, and sometimes it can be loud. But everyone is very friendly, and the pizza is pretty awesome. All in all, a fun little neighborhood spot.
