The best Sicilian around I could eat 4 slices. Looks heavy but it's not sauce and burnt cheese are amazing. So cheap too less then 2 bucks a slice. Lines most of the time but worth it. Cheap wine too.

It is one of the highest rated pizza places in the little Italy. It is cash only, very short list of Italian foods in their menu. They skipped all none sense in their menu and kept all delicious food. I liked the pizza the most. Check picture.

I have to admit, I got lucky. I went on a pizza tour and they took us to Galleria Umberto at about 2:15 PM. This is after the lunch crowd has died down, and there was barely a line. This small, square, simple slice of pizza might be the best pizza I have ever had. And I have had A... More

You can easily walk by this place. If you do, you are missing out on a great North End experience. Get on line; it's worth it. Get there early because they close up for the day when they run out. The pizza melts in your mouth and the arancini is incredible.

Great cheap and quick eat in the North End. Go early as once they make their last pizza for the day - it's over! The rice balls are to die for. Great pizza. Best ever. Eat here and then head to Paul Revere's house nearby.

The best pizza I have ever had, nothing fancy but fresh quality ingredients and authentic Sicilian slices hot and ready. We loved the charm of this local hot spot and the prices were so reasonable we could try a little of everything.

This place was awesome! We had to wait for a short while, and it's cash only. The wait was worth it. Our family of 5 was able to sample slices of pizza, calzones and other menu items. Everything was delicious! Will go back next time in town. We had many good meals in Boston, this place stood above the rest.... More

Queues were out the door just after opening which tells you everything. The cuisine is classic Sicilian made with love and passion. A must if you're in the North End.

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.
