We had Upper Crust delivered for the opening of the Olympics. I could not stop eating the pizza. It was simply delicious. I love thin crust pizza and this is one of the best.

Great pizza but very busy on a Fri evening Had takeout, waited about 30 mins from ordering but worth it. 1 large table for eating in if you don't mind sharing or other customers standing next to you.

We stayed there last night. Fantastic place! Small, ready to deliveries, but with a big common table. Quick service! Unfortunately, they don't have beers to sell!

The upper crust is an excellent choice if you want to eat a slice of pizza. You can eat there or take to go. They offer some salads too. A small place near the public garden.

Good pizza in this little place. They had gluten free options that tasted pretty good. Great place for food on the run. This place is a bit of a landmark in the neighborhood.

Stopped in for what looked from the street like a tasty slice of pizza. Unfortunately, the place was so disgusting we couldn't bring ourselves to eat the pie. The guy behind the counter, Gavin, complained to us about his day. He was obviously fried on something -- pupils like saucers. When my friend asked to use the bathroom he said... More

We ordered a small half taco and half prosciutto. It was busy with lots of regulars coming in. Younger crowd. If you eat there they have a long table that you sit with others or a small counter height area where you can see the pizzas being made. The small was filling.

Don't be deceived with their modest appearance and common-man long dining table - these guys make great pizza! And big ones too! Service was friendly and efficient. Price is great value! Serving sizes are generous. Pizza selection is what any pizza lover would expect! The location is convenient, easily accessible and central. We're well travelled and have stayed in Naples,... More

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
