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 value for $20). It is a bit rushed/chaotic inside, but there is a distinctive charm to the place. There is always a line outside but stick around; it's worth the 15-20 minute wait. One tip: if you order for take out, you do NOT have to wait in the line outside (go around the side entrance, walk in, and tell the staff that you're here to pick up an order). Highly recommended!

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 Margarita Pizza. Asked several locals, who were more than helpful with location and directions, and went to Regina's original location. Has been here since 1926. A wait yes, it was lunch time, but well worth it. The Pizza was as close as true Italian ( I lived there I know) as I have found. Service was excellent. Old Boston, not big on elegance, quaint good food. Bathroom very tiny.

Please don't think that this pizza is the same as their satellite restaurants. The pizza from these ovens is nothing short of spectacular. It's a little pricey, but well worth it.
