Loved it the first time, definitely plan on being back soon! The charcuterie board was spot on but, I will probably skip the Salty Pig sandwich on the return.

Went here with 5 other business associates. Busy busy place took 30 minutes for seating but was well worth the wait. The place is pretty small, but serves a variety of unique food such as bone marrow appetizer. Delicious pizzas, other unique appetizers that foodies would love!Mostly serves craft beers, wine and select cocktails. Service was great and helpful.

My teenage son and I went to The Salty Pig after a long day of college visits. We got seats at the counter directly in front of the pizza oven! it was terrific fun to watch all of the actions in the kitchen. It was an incredibly busy Friday night, but the food or service did not suffer. We felt... More

This is definitely what I would call a hipster restaurant. We couldn't understand the menu and tried for several minutes, but the waitress was helpful in explaining it. Many items we had never heard of. Also, I'm vegetarian, they had a vegetarian pizza(the calabrese I believe) and that was very good, but on the salty side. Another in our group... More

Craft beer is the headliner at the Salty Pig followed by the interesting platters. We enjoyed three craft beers, Exhibit 'A' the Cat's Meow, a pale ale and a cherry flavoured beer. All were very different and interesting. We also enjoyed a delicious platter of the chef's selection. A very busy place with a great vibe and service.

I love when you go to a restaurant, and you have nothing to complain about, they know what they are, and know how to do it. great food and service. The prosciutto was excellent, as was the cheese board, and the pizzas.

On our recent visit to Boston, we decided to drop in and check out this great little place for a quick nibble and some drinks -- not just once, but twice in two days! Yeah...it's just that good! Charcuterie has become one of our more favored appetizers and snacks of late, and The Salty Pig (TSP) does it great justice!... More

Our first visit but definitely not our last! Charcuterie board - select your own meats and cheese, all made in house. Pasta made in house as well as pizza crust. Was very busy - we waited almost an hour - but worth it. Great selection of draft beer and ciders as well.

Thank oyyveyy

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.
