“Best pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

When I lived in the north end, I was a regular at Pizzeria Regina. Their Meatball Pomodoro is my personal favorite, but every pizza that Regina's makes is great. The restaurant gets a little crowded with tourists during the weekends and at lunch during the weekdays and is crowded with locals most nights. You may have to wait a bit for a table and you may have to wait a bit if you're just ordering take out, but it's worth it. Highly recommend!

“Yet another "Best ever" (bestevah...)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I really find it hard to enjoy pizza ordered elsewhere anymore - the quality of Regina's food, the significant CHUNKS of cheese, the spicy hot oil on the table for those who would like to drizzle it on the pizza - for all these reasons, I honestly can say it is the best pizza I have ever had anywhere at anytime. And I come here often so it is not just a one-time thing. Sure, they staff can appear quite loud and even downright rude, but underneath they are all, each and every one, real sweethearts. Just smile pleasantly and do whatever they tell you to do (best to do it quickly), then sit back and enjoy the experience.

“Authentic pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

You don't need to pile on the extra meat and cheese. The sauce and dough make this wonderful pie with good cheese. Pizza the way it is best.

“We were lucky that we didn't wait in line”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

We ate at the one in the North End. Had heard so much about it. We just stopped by right at the opening of dinner and sat at the bar-no wait at all. I have heard that lines can be brutal. Was the pizza good? Yes! Hot, fresh with good crispy-chewy crust. Was it worth waiting in line for a hour or more? Nope. The bartender was great. He was so paranoid and right wing, that he made me shake my head. Tiny little wine glasses and decent selection of american and Italian wines to choose from...

“The Original Regina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

I have lived in the North End for a long time, and have been going to the Regina for years. We survived all those hot Summers with no AC, just to eat this pizza. The ovens are seasoned to cook these pizzas just right,it's the beast
