My first meal at Boston, because it's near by the place we stay. The pizza is just amazing, we can't finish it at store so we took out and made it tomorrow's breakfast, still taste good.

This Italian restaurant is an absolute gem! The food was FANTASTIC! The ravioli with Alfredo red sauce and shrimp was delicious! Their pizza is amazing. If you are ever in Boston, I strongly recommend you stop by here. It is well worth the drive!

I had pizza, good but not amazing. If I lived nearby I would eat here all the time. But is it the 2nd best place in Boston? No. It is worth stopping if nearby but not a special trip.

I live in East Boston, and have been to Italian Express more times that I can count. For travelers, the location is convenient and close to the airport. East Boston was once dominated by Italians, so you are definitely enjoying some authentic, family-style cuisine (portions are huge)! The inside is small, so I'd suggest making a reservation (though I never... More

I didn't know if we would make it over to this area during our trip to Boston, but I am so glad we did! We stopped in on a Monday evening and didn't have to wait long for a table. My husband ordered the stuffed shells and I ordered Chicken Piccata with homemade fettuccine. OMG so good! The portions were... More

Stayed in East Boston doing the Air BnB thing. Turns out it was about half a block away. Went in and got sat quickly. Most of their business seemed to be of the take out variety. Tried the Pasta Fruta di Mare which had linguini, with mussels, clams, calamari, and shrimp in their marinara sauce. Very tasty. Just know that... More

This cozy little place had the best spaghetti carbonara we've had since we we fell in love with the dish in Italy. Both of us ordered the entree but one portion would have been more than enough - the portions were huge! Half of each went back with us. The restaurant was a bit of a walk from the Maverick... More
