The pizza was awesome... good quality ingredients & no soggy crust here! On average you'll wait 30-45 mins. in a line outside to get a table. The service is a bit less than hospitable as they are quickly trying to turn tables to get people through since there is such a demand, but it wasn't bad... just matter of fact... More

We had the chance to eat in this apparently very common restaurant, BUT waouw .... The pizzas are definitely uncredible, enormous, their taste is just delicious. Difficult now to eat a pizza in Europe...

We generally visit PR when we're in Boston. We went today after taking a Duck Tour. The pizza was OK - nothing earth-shattering. But one thing I really can't stand in an already packed restaurant is unnecessary loud music being played with TVs tuned into different stations. Today, we were seated directly under a speaker. If that wasn't bad enough,... More

I have been in this restaurant twice. Both times I waited outside to get in. When your group is more than 4 people waiting time is longer. My first visit I ate anchovy pizza. Crust was good. It was very salty but overall it was a good pizza. Second time I had summer pizza (lots of garlic). Garlic pieces was... More

The pizza here was excellent! We got the margherita pizza and I must say I love that brick oven pizza. We arrived to around 8 on a Sunday and had to wait about twenty minutes for a table. The guy working the was excellent, very friendly and helpful. Be sure that if you go to Regina's you go to this... More

We went for lunch and had zero wait, the evening before there was a long line outside. The pizza was good, kids had pepperoni and we had a ricotta, prosciutto and mushrooms pizza. However, if we had to wait 30 minutes for a table, I would have been pretty disappointed.

I visited Pizzeria Regina for the first time last week and was pleasantly surprised, as I tend to be a bit dubious about people who say things like "it's the best pizza in town." Quite simply, it was exceptional! I will cross town to enjoy pizza at Regina. I enjoyed #31 (spinach and pomodoro)- the large is huge (and great... More

The original Pizzeria Regina, in the North End, is hands down the best pizza in the country. Worth standing in long line if necessary, the decor is just perfect in its worn shabbiness. The pizzas are pure perfection, and mist be dribbled liberally with the spiced and herbed olive oil at each tiny table.

Went to Boston with my cousin's 10 yr old daughter prior to a family reunion to explore the freedom trail. While in the North End, which is the famous Boston "Little Italy" we were looking for lunch. Asked what to have it was explained that it was to be pizza, but not just any pizza it had to be a... More

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.
