Definitely worth the wait. The line for service was out the door. The staff was fast and friendly. I'm not the biggest pizza fan but I love to support small and family owned business. You could feel the real Italian heritage of this place. It...really seems like a place where the locals come. The pizza was good and a great price.More

The tour guide was amassing. I highly recommend booking tours with Paula. Ended up at this restaurant. I’m from NY and always go to a few spots that sells pizza and other foods choices in the pizzerias. I’ve never had Arancini and rice balls before....I’m so in love! I would go back to Boston just for this slice! Amazing -T.K.More

I had read about this place on Tripadvisor and love to try out different pizza places especially ones that are highly recommended by locals. My husband and I loved the pizza. It was one of the most flavorful sauces and crusts that I’ve ever had...cooked and was baked to perfection!!!! The prices are perfect they take cash only and it may be a long line sometimes but it’s so worth it. They move along the line pretty quickly.More

We were in Boston just for a day as a cruise stop & was told to go to the Little Italy section. Glad we did! It felt like we were back in Europe. We were looking for a place to eat & there was a...big line at this place. We always follow the locals, so if they're lined up to get something to eat, you know it has to be good. We shared a piece of pizza, an arancini ball, and a spinach & cheese calzone. Everything was delicious! Would 100% recommend this place to anyone.More

My university age daughter found this place on Instagram and we decided to take a chance and get there early as all the reviews say. We arrived at 10:55am (5 minutes before opening) and were 12th in line and the line never stopped growing. We...saw local police officers and other Italian district restaurant workers in line with us. They told us they come here all the time as it’s the best pizza and the price is great. Seriously, we bought 2 sodas, 5 slices of pizza, an arancini ball and a panzarotti for $19 and change. It was sooo good!!! Cash only so be prepared and come early.More

Jumped in here for lunch one day and so glad we did. $2 per slice of pizza and $5 for calzone, etc. We ordered a calzone and a few slices. The pizza was just delicious. The calzone was very good as well, but we were...not used to all that ricotta cheese in a calzone as ours usually have mozzarella. Glad we stopped in and the Italian men behind the counter were very friendly.More

We first visited as part of a pizza tour and were so impressed we visited again! It's very much a no frills affair and once these guys sell out of pizza - they close! If you're looking for a siclian slice in Boston then look...no further - great tasting pizza!More

We had a great lunch here. I love Sicilian pizza and this place serves authentic slices! A simple, but great tasting menu, run by some of the nicest people we met in Boston. We had the pizza and Arancini and ate it there. We noticed...a consistent line coming in with many obvious regular locals coming in for their lunch. I can see why people are come in over and over again ... prices are great and the people are even better. We'll definitely be making this place a must stop on every visit to Boston.More

I had such a good experience here. I got there later, but was in luck and got the last piece of pizza for the day!! The crust was fantastic! I also ate something that I didn’t know what it was called, but it had ground...beef, veggies and peppers that was very flavorful! Such nice people, and am definitely coming back here next time I’m in town!! You don’t want to miss this place if you’re a fan of Italian food! My recommendation: Get there soon after it opens so you can get there pizza! They only make a certain amount a day! Also, they only accept cash, so make sure you bring some!More

Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like

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.
