We love this place! Excellent food, cozy atmosphere (although we often take it home, its on the way). Our favorites are Shrimp Scampi Pizza and Cesar salad. so good. Also - the seafood and pasta, the Margarita Haddock with potatoes. Their meatballs are super good as well. And the Sangria - the only place I've had Sangria as good as... More

I have mixed feelings about my experience. The pasta was really good, but the meat and eggplant tasted like it had freezer burn, and was not edible. Unfortunately, i do not think that i would return. Please start making things fresh again.

We chose this restaurant quite by accident. And boy were we pleased with our choice! The menu has a nice variety of subs and entrees as well as pizza. The portion sizes are more than generous- we ordered french fries but certainly did not need them at all. The steak and cheese sub was moist with all the toppings we... More

Italian Pizza Express is a fantastic little restaurant in East Boston. They have a wide variety of pasta dishes and make it easy to customize what you want. I have enjoyed every dish I've tried there. Their alfredo dishes in particular are absolutely delicious. Definitely consider splitting dishes or plan for leftovers, because the portions are enormous!

We had just gotten back into the country after a long flight and checked into our hotel. We were hungry for "real food" as we like to call it, and decided to try this gem and are so glad we did! Jim, one of the owners, pulled up a chair and talked to us about our order and we decided... More

Down from Maine for the weekend with the family and found this great little place on TA. It's a short walk from the Maverick T stop on the blue line, and well worth every step! From the moment we walked in, we felt welcome. The staff was warm, kind, and pleasant throughout our visit. The dining room was spotless, but... More

The owner/staff were very friendly and treated us like we were family. The Interior is very unique and is displayed with such pride. A Must eat, if you want... More

We finishing a week of travel that included 3 nights in Boston and 3 nights in Reykjavik, Iceland. We ate at Flemings Steak House, Legal Seafood, and a few places I can't even pronounce. But, we saved the best for last. Italian Express Pizzeria in East Boston provided the best food and the best experience - and the closest competition... More
