We have been to another location (Wellesley), where the atmosphere is fine and the food is excellent. This location is different. We walked Into the restaurant tonight (Saturday night), and it was dark and empty. The employers (perhaps 7 or so people) were standing behind the counter. There was one woman among them, who was rude and unprofessional. She spoke... More

We were stuck inside due to Nor'easter Stella. Found this place open and across the street. Ordered lasagna and a calzone to go. The calzone was by far one of the best I've ever had! The lasagna was good as well. I would recommend this place for takeout.

Had a nice pizza for takeaway. We enjoyed the pizza on a bench in the Boston public garden. Very good memories!

A cute hole in the wall pizzeria in the historical picturesque Beacon Hill neighborhood. Superb personal service with a smile and a hearty laugh, giving the establishment a very homey and welcoming feel. Pizza was delicious! Thin crust, cooked well, excellent array of toppings to choose from, and such a great flavorful tomato sauce. Not much room to eat in... More

If you enjoy really good thin crust pizza, Upper Crust is for you. the seating area is small and pretty Spartan but the pizza is worth the less-than-posh setting.

Upper Crust's margherita pizza is absolutely delicious! Thin, thin crust, cheesy and flavorful. We never get plain margherita pizza anywhere, except here. We always get large, even for just two of us, because it is so good the next day, too, when heated. Dinner time is busy. Call ahead or order online, because you get a head start (as I... More

We had Upper Crust delivered for the opening of the Olympics. I could not stop eating the pizza. It was simply delicious. I love thin crust pizza and this is one of the best.

Great pizza but very busy on a Fri evening Had takeout, waited about 30 mins from ordering but worth it. 1 large table for eating in if you don't mind sharing or other customers standing next to you.

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
