If you watch Suits, you'll know that Lewis Litt describes this place as the best of Harvard's many pizza places. And to be quite honest, it's absolutely true! I tend to get a small pizza made fresh rather than the pre-made slices that are ready to do. A small pizza with garlic, basil and ham is my favorite and it's... More

This pizza is a must in Cambridge! It has nothing to do with American pizza, this is Italian type. I recommend zucchini and veggie.

A great choice of fresh pizza in deep or thin crust warmed to your order with incredible value and taste. Two generous slices and a drink for around $10 makes this a place not to miss for that ideal snack when in the area.

We found ourselves at Pinocchios because Umbertos closed at 2:30 and we wanted a Sicilian slice. I can see this being a popular late night pizza spot, but it was very basic pizza. They have a special for 2 Sicilian slices for just under $6, but we were left a bit underwhelmed. The cheese tasted a bit rubbery, the sauce... More

If you stop at Harvard, you cannot miss Pinocchio's. The pizzeria is owned and run by 2 brothers since 1982, they will serve you at the counter like they served generations of Harvard student before you. The pizze are very good, yet simple. 2 generous fresh slices and a drink for less than $10. Crust is "hard" (good crusty, not... More

If you can't get to the North End for the real deal pizza, and just happen to be in Harvard Square without wheels to get you to the North End, Pinocchio's is about as good as you can get outside the North end - and why not? The proprietors are both former North Enders and their pizza compares pretty well... More

0 friends 3 reviews 5.0 star rating 8/26/2016 I'll start by saying I'm a little biased. Over the past 10 years or so I've literally gone here about 300 times. Day or night, rain or shine, I can always, always count on Pinocchio's to have an amazing slice or pie. Having lived and worked all over the US, Pinocchio's literally... More

Wow I liked this place. Friend of mine who studies in Harvard offered this place . We all liked it. Especially kids really loved this place. Good service with good price and delicious food 👍 the only thin was we were there 6 people and it's been difficult to seat together. Otherwise we really enjoyed this place.

Thank Mongolia D
