Over from London in Boston for 3 nights and ended up coming here for 2 of them. It's brilliant. The pizza slices are huge and one of the best I've had. If you don't fancy pizza, the subs are brilliant too. Jim, the owner, is a top guy too, taking time with all customers to ensure they get the best... More

Small pizza joint with lots of personality and large portions. Cash only. Pasta was tasty, sauce was straightforward but didn't that blow my socks off. Our group of 4 ordered 2 salads, an eggplant parmesan/ravioli (thin slices of attached eggplant) as well as a pizza (nice light and crispy crust)... Lots of food. Problem was pasta dish came out at... More

This place is a gem. Get here early, it fills up quick. Anything with the marinara sauce is going to be mind blowing. He cooks the sauce for 4 hours, even for the pizza so the flavors are so complex and deep. The seafood is so fresh and the clams are from the Cape and they're amazing. A definite must... More

After all the reviews you sometimes think people could be exaggerating... Omg!!! They were not! The food was amazing and costumer service was impressive. The owner was there and took the time to say hello to everyone. You need to order the Seafood Pasta.....you can't get any fresher.

Parked on the street opposite. The Dishes are large. Ordered the spicy Calamari, different covered with a sweet sause. The BBQ chicken pizza - was large and had a similar flavour to the calamari sause. Number one on TripAdvisor restaurant in Boston for last two years ! Hmm , possibly I ordered the wrong dishes?

We went here on the back of the reviews- part of me thought it would be too good to be true but I am delighted to say it was fantastic! I had the chicken soup followed by the meatballs and Julia had the carbonara - I loved my food and Julia says it is the best carbonara she has ever... More

This restaurant served the largest Caesar salad I have seen in a long while. I asked for some anchovies and I got a Plate of them. One piece of pizza was larger than most restaurants small pizza, for four dollars, the price was amazing. While we did not order the pasta the portions being served were enormous and smelled great.... More
