It was fantastic! The best pizza I've had in a long time. Our waitress Hannah was so wonderful and helpful. Would return our next time in Boston, name kind of threw me off though.

While I vote for Regina's in the North End as my all time favorite pizza in Boston, this is a close second and excellent in it's own right. Love coming here for the pizza, the ambiance, the great waitresses. A great spot on way or back from Logan Airport if you have the time. Parking on the street... sometimes a... More

All of us have favorite places to grab pizza when the urge emerges and it was just one bite here to convince me that Santarpio's tops my list! Truly. It's been years since I was last at this gem in East Boston, in part, because I lived in the South. But, I recall a tradition at Santarpio's--cutting men's ties in... More

My wife and I were looking for something fun. This was it. We were eating early and thought we would be empty. They were quite busy considering the time we arrived. We had the meat-lovers pizza it was great. I wish this was in my home town I be here 2 or 3 times a week. Employees seemed like family.... More

Every time an out of towner comes to visit with us, we take them to Santarpio's Pizza in East Boston. And every time we are more than satisfied with the constant and delicious food served for the past 50 years! We ordered pizzas both plain cheese and mushroom/onion along with orders of lamb tips. Tips are served with fabulous Italian... More

We were on our own for dinner before the beginning of the tour and started walking down the street from our hotel. The aroma drew us to this little restaurant. It's a tiny, dim place, and we got the feeling that everyone was related. We placed our take-out order in the kitchen from a menu posted on the fridge...up close... More

I'm a pilot, so I travel a lot. One of my favorite things to do is find local pizza joints. This one is the best I have found. I absolutely love it. I go here every time I'm in Boston. Cash only though.

I'd consider myself a pizza aficionado, so when I moved to the neighborhood I definitely had Santarpio's on my list. To avoid the crazy long lines and alleged rude service, I've always gotten take out (pizza only, FYI). You have to go to the back and stand in the kitchen while you wait, which can be a bit awkward, but... More
