While in Boston to attend a show we wanted an late afternoon meal, we picked C.P.K. because it offered some gluten free options and the pricing was reasonable for our crowd. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived and we were seated at a table in a corner that was quieter to accommodate a hearing impaired friend Our waitperson... More

We really miss the pizza with chicken potatoes and rosemary - the aroma took your breath away. Wish they would bring that back. Now we've settled on the roasted garlic chicken with caramelized onions, parm and mozzarella cheese, scallions and black pepper. You cannot be disappointed here. This location is right in the Prudential shopping mall. Park in the mall... More

I don't even know how pizza could be cold when it comes out of a fire breathing oven, but my pizza was cold. Our waitresses name was Leidy (pronounced Lady) and she was the WORST! She didn't fill our drinks. As a matter of fact, she completely disappeared out of sight for quite some time. I tried to get the... More

The place has a friendly feel. We ordered rocket and quinoa salad, tomato tortilla soup, margarita pizza, cheese pizza, butter pudding with ice cream, red velvet cake. The salad & butter pudding were very good. Pizzas were very cheesy. The service was quick.

Menu had too many options, good choice in no time. I would return to try more food. Not very expensive but worth a try.

This place has the best pizza in town. The crust is very crispy and the pizza are too delicious. We were addicted to this restaurant.

Had been disappointed in CPK's for a while but decided to try the one in Boston due to its great location. The food (Thai chicken pizza) was excellent-way better than the one in Boulder CO. Not sure why but the whole group agreed. Clean place with great service.

I generally don't choose chains, but while staying in the convention center area there weren't a lot of convenient alternatives. I thought the flat bread choices were actually very good. The wait staff was inconsistent--seemed to be way overstaffed during the two times I visited. Too many of them were busy entertaining themselves rather than providing table service.

CPK is a chain but the food and service is of very high order. The pizza options pretty much fit everyone's taste ranging from veggie only to a carnivores meatiest desire. Salads, as well fit a wide range of tastes. My wife and I typically share a salad and a pizza and have some left over

We came here for a quick lunch on Presidents' Day Monday, it was a holiday but they neglected to mention that they weren't serving the lunch menu because of that, which was a bummer because we had already decided what we wanted off that menu. The gentleman has seated us was rather abrupt in his speech as was the waitress,... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
