This was one of the stops on the North End Pizza Tour. Definitely not the fanciest decor, but pizza was really tasty.

Serves up margarita pizza as well as panini, pizzette, panzarotti, arancini and calzones; all cooked freshly. Friendly staff and happy to explain what’s in everything if you have specific dietary requirements.

Whether you like this place or not depends on the type of pizza you like. If you like medium or thin crust pies, don't bother going to Umberto. If you like good thick crust, this is a good place. The lineup was long and slow,...More

This is amazing. The queue went out the door for pretty much the whole time we were here. Food is simple, but all amazing. Try a good selection and once you’ve finished try a cake at Mike’s.

Great Italian fast food! Very authentic north end experience. It's cafeteria styled restaurant. Come early lines can be very long.

Best pizza in Boston! Went with my son for lunch based on a recommendation. Only open a few hours until they run out of food. Line was out the door but went by fast. Bring cash since they don't take credit cards. Sell square pieces...More

Family run, this place has been there a million years. Noisy, chaotic, with a long line, but worth it. Authentic italian take out ... pizza slices, arancini, pizzette, calzone, all that. If you're in the North End, this is your spot for lunch.

Rice balls incredible, pizza to die for, calzone died and gone to heaven, and wallet unharmed! So cheap and so much food...but good food!

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

just good old hard CASH. Hard to deal with plastic as they are handing out thick slices of gooey, cheesy pizza. Take $10 and you should be fine.
