Was here for a business dinner and the food was awesome! Great atmosphere as well. Friendly service overall, but our waitress Jamie was excellent! Will come back in part because of her and the rest because of the food! Thanks!

This is a no-frills establishment with very good pizza. The pie was perfect and gobbled up quickly and paired with a Sam Adams - can you get more Boston? Be aware, however, they don't accept credit cards.

We really wanted to like Santarpio's, but unfortunately did not. We got a pizza with "The Works". The top crust was crispy, the bottom crust was soggy. This sometimes happens when there are many toppings, so it really wasn't a surprise. The sauce was bland....More

Very ambiguous business hours. I once called asking if they were still open and they said yes, to come over!! Once we got there, they simply said "we're closed."
