We visited Pinocchio's with a couple of Harvard freshmen to taste the experience. We ordered a lot of pizza - pre-made and heated 8-10 selections, all of which were great. Dining in was somewhere between cramped and cozy, noise level was reasonable for an afternoon,...not rushed, and ordered extra take-out for the dorm. Very enjoyable and a very short walk from the Square.More

The best Sicilian pizza around. This place is an old school, Harvard Sq. establishment and they are known for their Sicilian pizza. I had only really ever ordered slices from time to time, but during the COVID pandemic, I wanted to support a local business...still operating and treat myself to Friday night pizza. I ordered a small and woah! It was huge! Needless to say I had an ample amount of leftovers. The dough is delicious...soft, thick and holds the sauce and toppings well yet isn't mushy nor heavy. Perfectly made. The sauce, cheese and toppings are nicely balanced too. I was glad to see they had a lot of orders. People picking up were practicing proper social distancing and Pinocchio's was enforcing it as well as proper cleaning protocol--so important during this COVID stuff. Definitely made me feel better knowing they were doing all they could to keep people safe.More

Came here after a night out downtown, and the pizza does hit the spot. It’s open until 3am and it’s super close to campus, so you know that you’ll always see people there. It’s 2 for $6.90 for any two slices of pizza, so buddy...up or just come hungry. There’s a $7 minimum for credit cards. There’s water cups and a water dispenser to the left of the register. It’s a bit messy but who cares when all you want is some greasy, hot pizza. I got the white pizza with chicken and the cashier was kind enough to get the corner piece as I had specified. He still had a sense of humor at 2:30am and cracked a joke as we checked out, so that was nice. The square pizzas were a novelty to me but it had a good proportion of cheese to crust. This was apparently one of Mark Zukerberg’s favorite spots as well, and I can see why it would be a college student hangout. Overall it’s cheap, it’s tasty, and definitely not healthy, but it’s open late so who really cares about calories when you’re hungry after clubbing.More

We loved finding this little spot in Cambridge! After walking around town we were suprised at the options, but glad when we stumbled upon this in a side street. It's small, but so worth it! Sicilian pizza by the slice! And the good part is,...it isn't heavy like some sicilian pizza. The best I have had, good crisp on the bottom! Come check it out!More

This was mention to us on our Harvard tour and we kind of thought is was going to be overrated. I was wrong. It’s by far the best pizza I’ve ever had. We had the veggie pizza by the slice and it was to die...for. We bought a second slice. I wish I had this in my city!More

Local pizza place recommended by a Harvard student. Very small place so you may be standing outside to eat. I have 2 Sicilian slices. I liked them. Big sliced I could have had one. Long line but worth the wait. Friendly staff. I like the...pictures of the famous Harvard students who ate there on the walls. I would go back.More
