Located on Hanover Street, its easy to miss this place. We happened to be walking by and noticed a line so we stopped. Luckily we were hungry and this was the first place we ate on our visit to Boston. Keep in mind it's cash...More

Great Deal and Pizza, worth the wait. Line can be slow and long, so plan ahead. Get 2-3 slices per adult.

We had arancini and pizza as part of a foodie tour. The pizza was nothing to write home about - in fact it was somewhat burned. The arancini was spectacular - and it has a well deserved reputation there. Definitely try it. They open 1030-11...More

For old school Italian, stop by, grab a slice and get more to go. Trust me! You’ll be wanting some later. Nice thin crust pan pizza. Love ordering several slices to go and watching them add a handle to your box. Also loved the fried...More

I'm a transplant to Boston that has been struggling to find good pizza in a new city. Galleria Umberto is the best I have found in a long hunt. It's the perfect ratio of sauce, cheese, and dough. The bake is amazing and really brings...More

This tiny little eatery is a (not so) hidden gem. It gets packed so quickly. Very limited menu, but great pricing. We tried the pizza and arancini. The pizza was sicilian style, thick crust and greasy. Flavor was amazing though! Arancini was huge, we decided...More

Great local place for quick pizza and a rice ball. All the locals/workers were coming in an out. I love the old school feel to this. And very reasonable! Pizza was above average.

Cash only. Great comfort food (fried and full of cheese). If you are vegetarian, ask about which items do/don't have meat. If you are vegan, low fat or gluten free, you will probably die if you eat here and you should avoid at all costs....More

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

just good old hard CASH. Hard to deal with plastic as they are handing out thick slices of gooey, cheesy pizza. Take $10 and you should be fine.
