This tiny little eatery is a (not so) hidden gem. It gets packed so quickly. Very limited menu, but great pricing. We tried the pizza and arancini. The pizza was sicilian style, thick crust and greasy. Flavor was amazing though! Arancini was huge, we decided...More

Great local place for quick pizza and a rice ball. All the locals/workers were coming in an out. I love the old school feel to this. And very reasonable! Pizza was above average.

Cash only. Great comfort food (fried and full of cheese). If you are vegetarian, ask about which items do/don't have meat. If you are vegan, low fat or gluten free, you will probably die if you eat here and you should avoid at all costs....More

I am a native New Yorker and have grown up on pizza. It kills me to admit it but the best Sicilian pizza I have ever had is in Boston. Get it with pepperoni if they have it. Baked just right. Absolutely the best. Just...More

Can't go wrong with anything, a real treat! Everything is hot, fresh and authentic. Always lines with locals getting takeout but the line moves quickly.

Very good, and excellent prices. Gentleman that took our order was very nice, not the usual, inpatient type, made you feel welcome and special. Food was tasty, tried 5 different items, all worth the tasting.

Get here early. When they sell out...they are out! Pizza, calzones, arancini’s, pizzette’s , panzerotti’s are the best!!!

We were tourists in the area so we followed advice from locals and visited Umberto's. It's a great spot with wholesome, tasty, inexpensive Italian food. Definitely NOT worth the one hour, twenty minute wait however and this was mid-week in the dead of winter. Some...More

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.
