We were staying in a hotel near Boston Logan and wanted a place for dinner, so I consulted Trip Advisor and a couple of other websites. This restaurant was very close to where we were staying and very highly rated. I thought that we wouldn't be lucky enough to get in. There were 7 of us. We tried and got... More

I had not been to Italian Express in a number of years. The food is still delicious and plentiful. Word has gotten around, for the numbers of people that come in for take out overwhelmed the kitchen. Sitting at the table meant you had a bit of a wait. The wait was the only thing that didn't give it an... More

My family of four and my six Italian in-laws had spent the day walking around Boston's North End exploring and walking quite a bit. We are all from New York and staying at a hotel near Logan Airport. Since all of the restaurants in the North End were busy on a Saturday evening and not having reservations, we decided to... More

I love this place. I'm not a big Italian Restaurant fan but when ever I'm in Easty & waiting for hair cut, this family restaurant ( cash only) has some great home cook meals with generous portion. The great thing about it, it's within walking distance from Logan Airport

The best homemade Italian food around. They treat you like family they can't do enough for you. There meatballs are the best they will even give you extra gravy in the bowl for dipping the bread. Reasonable prices great service and the best Italian meals plenty to choose from. The only draw back is the parking street parking only and... More

This is a small casual Italian pizza restaurant that has the most delicious food!!! It even serves beer and wine. We went inbetween lunch and dinner with no lines. It really is worth the trip. Owner and chef very kind and interesting.

My son picked our restaurant for a late lunch. He did some research and wanted to visit a restaurant that DDD Guy Fieri presented on his show. The food was fantastic we had a great time. Great atmosphere. The owner was great and enjoyed sharing his stories about the restaurant. Out of this world a must visit when in Boston.

For a little joint that is tucked away in heart of East Boston, this place is an adventure. If you can find a parking spot on the street, it is well worth the trip. Pizza and traditional red sauce pasta dishes are big and tasty. Priced like they want you to come back, you won't be disappointed. Friendly service and... More

This was my third time visiting the Italian Express and each time has been a win. I like to stop here before or after a Logan Airport drop off or pick up. I usually just get an order to go but today we ate inside. It was 94 degrees outside and they didn't have ac, but the food was worth... More
