When I'm in Boston this is one place where I'm used to stop for lunch or dinner. Pizza is good, and the place is always full.

The pizzas are undeniably excellent. Personally i hate truffles, but for the people who love it, their mac&cheese with truffles is very good. The only reason i didn't give them a 5 is because of the manager and waiters attitude. I had the impression i...More
