We stopped in for a quick bite before going on a tour of the city. It was absolutely wonderful. We HIGHLY recommend the ravioli. Also, the atmosphere was so welcoming. It is "family, not fancy." We will return! PS get the cannoli. It is to die for!

AMAZING! Large portions of great food! So friendly. Will be back time and time again! Realized we didn't need the appetizer once our meal came, but it all was worth it. They boxed up our unfinished meals in to go microwave friendly boxes. Great little place!

Average at best. Not worth the trip. I went to Italian Express Pizzeria only because I was invited there by a friend and will never return. I had a shrimp pizza and an antipasto. The shrimp was from a can and the antipasto had iceberg lettuce.

Went here with my family. Unbelievable food! Chicken piccata off the charts. The meatballs were perfect. The homemade fettuccine made our meal unforgettable. Will eat here every chance we get! Amazing family feeling here.

After reading the reviews on line, we decided to make a day trip out of visiting and boy were we happy we did! Walking in, there's a home style, neighborhood vibe that greets you and follows you throughout the entire meal. Jim, the owner, made it a point to visit the table several times. We ordered the spicy calamari at... More

First time in Boston from TO, and I must say that I'm so glad I found this place before I left. A hidden gem in East Boston. If I could give this a 5.5/5 stars, I would. The food was superb! The portions shocked us! They say for one, yeah no! It's good for like 3! But the most outstanding... More

Visited this restaurant with 3 colleagues. We all enjoyed the great food, but more importantly, the friendly staff who create a warm atmosphere in which to enjoy your meal. This restaurant is family run, and they make you feel like one of the family!

Its quaint, its nostalgic, its damn good Italian. The small dining area adds to the charm and allure of the place. The friendly staff whose attire varies makes them all approachable and non-snooty for a restaurant with so much acclaim. The menu is straight forward and doesn't need fancy descriptions to make it more attractive. The prices are so reasonable... More

They have the best pizza around. They also have awesome dinners and subs. I particularly like the veal or shrimp dinners. Salads are a bit boring. Try the fried dough for dessert.
