We were staying in East Boston and this was within walking distance. Great pizza and everyone knew where it was! The waitress was a true Bostonian and told my husband when he asked for butter what's on the table is what you get!

I'm really, really disappointed that I can't give this place a 5/5. The setting is old school, wooden benches, boxing memorabilia on the walls, an intoxicating aroma and a buzz of "local" energy. The host is banterful and a lot of fun. The pizza ......More

Best Pizza in Boston. What else can you say. Local joint with local staff that on most nights are very comical and very friendly. Very good Barbecue. Try the lamb. Get a sausage garlic pizza it's the best.

Easy. Best pizza worldwide. No frills. No sides. Tough parking. Worth it all. Don't worry about the meat.

The headline is no lie. When I was in Florence, Italy in 1992 I had a marguerite pizza that was so amazing--I didn't eat pizza in the US for a few years and I've never forgotten that one pizza. I've eaten pizza with fresh mozzarella...More

Yes we parked along street. Most important thing we would not have been prepared if we weren't with friends in the know-- CASH only (as I recall)

Yes, they do take out orders. Their service is pretty quick but I'd still allow 20 minutes or so. As for the garlic, I never noticed them having a lot but I'm sure you can ask for more/less unless it's in the sauce!
