Great Deal and Pizza, worth the wait. Line can be slow and long, so plan ahead. Get 2-3 slices per adult.

We had arancini and pizza as part of a foodie tour. The pizza was nothing to write home about - in fact it was somewhat burned. The arancini was spectacular - and it has a well deserved reputation there. Definitely try it. They open 1030-11...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.

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.
