I've always loved Upper Crust's pizza - thin crust is where it's at for me! I used to go to the Newbury Street location but now that it's done, Charles Street is where I go. I normally get a slice of cheese (which is really...More

Nice thin crust, so you don’t get too full. The combinations are very tasty. Its small and cozy. They have a long table that fits 10 guest, and extra stools. Cool boston experience. Try the mix and match slices of the day.

Good thin crust, very well done as in black at the edges. So if you want a rare slice, ask for it. The full pies they were cutting and boxing looked good, not overlooked. I had the slice of the day. It's a quarter of...More

I find it is average compared with some of the other pizzerias in Boston. It is usually crowded at lunch with lots of people from nearby businesses grabbing a quick bite to eat.

I shared a large pizza with my girlfriend and it was more than enough for us. Pizza has a characteristic, a little bit garlic, taste, which differentiates it from other pizza places. Nothing special, but definitely very decent pizza.

Whilst searching for the 'Cheers' bar, we accidentally came across this pizzeria. So, after finding the bar, doing the tourist thing (selfies if front of the sign), we came here. Initially the $30 price tag, was a shock... although it was an 18" pizza. WOW!...More

Was really good pizza. Not a huge fan of the spinach bites but everything else was tasty. They did however forget my slice I ordered and had to remind them but they were also super busy.

This place comes up as being a must-go-to but if you've had really good pizza, this place is purely average. it's a genuine hole-in-the-wall. The food is fresh. But that's about it. For $8.50 a slice, it's a bit steep for what it is. It's...More

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
