Best deal for pizza slices in the area - they are huge! They have a wide selection to choose from, but I would highly suggest the Chicken Ranch pizza! The location is small but has a few tables. If it's a nice day, you can bring it over to the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and eat outside!

This pizza is a bit different than your typical brick oven pizza. Extremely thin crust. Almost cracker thin. Tried the Margherita. Meh. The sauce was okay. The cheese and basil were indestinquishable.

Small authentic pizzeria with 300 pizzas only made fresh each day. Just pick one that looks like your toppings and remember the pieces are huge!!! You'll go back again - it is too good.

This pizza is unbelievable. That you get two large slices for $5 doesn't even matter. One slice would be worth $7 here. The flavor is so incredible. This could be the single best place to eat pizza in Boston. This place is an absolute must.

When we are in the North End of Boston, we like to go from Pizza place to Pizza place sampling. We stopped into Ernesto's on our latest trip. The pizza is fantastic. You can purchase it by the slice. When I say slice, you have to know that a slice is one quarter of a large pizza, equivalent to at... More

Best pizza best price, period. A small hole the wall kind of place it but outshines the more famous Pizzeria Regina. And you don't have to spend a ton.

Oh my goodness! If you’re hungry, then this is the place to go. It don’t look like much from the outside and the inside has maybe 5 tables (seriously), but the pizza slices are HUGE, VERY good and the price is RIGHT! My husband ordered two slices and it was literally almost half of a pizza. If you like pizza,... More

Probably one of the best pizzas we've had! I liked the large portions and the unique flavors such as cheeseburger one, tastes exactly like a Big Mac!

Fast food style joint, pleasant surprise in the North end. Was craving for a slice of pizza and all the restaurants all over the area were trattorias, didn't feel like ordering a whole pizza to myself. I had no choice but to try it here since this was the only place serving slices. It was better than any New York... More

North End - Just one block off of Hanover and all the congestion- Pizza by the Slice. But don't let the word SLICE through you off - you literally get 1/4 of the pie with a SLICE order. Serves beer, wine, and pop. Limited seating - but moves quickly.

Thank KHSLex

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
