we were heading to a more "famous" pizzeria in Boston's North end - but it was a cold and raw day - and there was a waiting line - so headed back toward Fanuel Hall and there it was - Pizza by the slice - well the slice is a quarter of a large pizza - it was delicious !!!!... More

Very hole in the wall (almost walked by the front door!) but once you go inside you are greeted by SO many flavors of delicious looking pizza. I was skeptical when it cost over $5 for a slice, until I saw the slice. It's actually TWO massive slices that they cut in half & heat up. A lot of times... More

This is a tiny shop with very limited seating right in the heart of the North End. The slices of pizza are huge and incredibly tasty. A combination of great crust with bubbling edges, superior sauce and just the right amount of cheese makes this my number one choice when I am in the North End for something other than... More

Shared a slice with my boyfriend here. Very tasty, big portion and piping hot. It's a cozy set-up so probably not ideal for large groups.

my husband went here March 25th 2017,have heard such good things about this place, the pizza was great-small seating area, not much room- so if you want a sit down with plenty of room this may not be the place, the pizza is so worth it, 2 big slices and drinks, for under 14$ I would for sure recommend this...

Don't be fooled by the glitz and glamour of Pizzeria Regina, ERNESTO'S is the best pizza in Boston. The toppings are endless, the slices are humongous, and it's truly a hidden local favorite. I even hesitate to post a review so I can keep them to myself! They have two locations, if you have a choice, opt for the North... More

The restaurant is extremely small, but the idea is to grab a big slice (1/4 of a of pizza), eat and go. They have a nice variety with meat, veggie or/and chicken. They're really fast - the pizzas are ready, they just warm it up - but the quality is still great. Everytime I am at North End I gotta... More

Absolutely enormous slices for only $4-6. It's a quarter of a pizza! Generous amounts of toppings. Lots of beer choices and decent wine in very full plastic cups for only $5. Some of the best pizza we've ever had anywhere. When you order a whole pizza (and it's not reheated) it will be the best pizza you've had in your... More

While staying in the North End, I wanted to choose a pizza place and an authentic Italian restaurant during my trip. I chose Ernesto's for my pizza. I ordered a slice of pepperoni and a caesar salad. One piece of pizza is HUGE. I have had a similar style of pizza in Chicago and it was more tasty, but this... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
