Great food! Big Portions! Run by the owners!!! The chicken & Eggplant Parm is awesome. Try the Penne with broccoli & chicken in butter garlic sauce. Also, they make their own red sauce (gravy) and it is very good. Eggplant Menino is a great starter. Cash only (there is an ATM). Call for ahead for a table!

It looks like a take-out joint, and feels like a take-out joint, but the food is not like a take-out joint! The food was fabulous. 3 of us shared a pizza and an Italian pasta dish. So fresh!

My wife and I have been there on several occasions. We Learned of this place on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and decided to check it out. The food was excellent and the staff extremely personable. A little difficult to park but definitely worth the effort.

If you are in the area, this is a great place for classic American Italian food. Jimmy, the owner, is an awesome host and always makes you feel right at home.

I was bringing my child back to college and we decided to go on a Diners, Drive-In and Dives adventure. Our experience at Italian Express Pizzeria was so wonderful. The food coupled with a friendly and inviting atmosphere, was well worth the trip. We spoke with Jim, one of the owners, as if we were old friends. As a New... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal- we dined-in and the restaurant team were all extremely friendly and accommodating! The pizza and meatballs were delicious and the pastas coming out of the kitchen looked amazing. Will be back next time we are in Boston! Thanks to Jim for stopping by to chat and sharing his passion for great Italian food. Highly recommend!

I said I would review this ages ago, but I'll do it now all the same - As an Italian, I can personally say that this was the best Italian food that I have ever had. Pizza with dollops of ricotta, pasta sauce reminiscent of my own Nonna - I ate here three during my trip to Boston and would... More

Went there with a colleague to have a little snack in the evening. The place was quite full but we got a table right away. Ordered something to eat and drink. As we had to wait a bit longer for our meal, we got offered a little starter, two nice meatballs in tomato sauce. Tasted great and also our main... More
