I had the ULTIMATE pizza. And it was to die for! So original. So tasty. So unusual. All the ingredients go well together. It is very filling. Great for sharing. Don't forget to take the leftover slices with you. They are as good the next day. Friendly service!

Decided to have a night in while on vacation. Delivery was as expected and pizza was good. Ordered wings as well and they were just ok. Still a good alternative to getting ready and going out.

The place has a reputation for being amazing but it lacks the effort. The service is not speedy to say the least. There are plenty of pizza options but nothing to write home about. The beer list is incredible but to get something you have never seen before be prepared to pay top dollar for it...

Penguin Pizza is a very good pizzeria and bar. It sort of looks like a purely college hangout from the outside, but inside I found that the clientele were definitely of all ages (though, like anywhere in Boston, leaning more toward the young side). All of the food I tried was great, from the fried calamari that's served with fried,... More

Good pizza and beer in a relaxed bar atmosphere. What more could you want? The beers were quite interesting from small craft brewers around the country, and on draft. Also had other food that looked pretty decent when it went by. Convenient to Mission Hill and the Brigham & Woman's Hospital.

I love this place! I come here often and enjoy the huge selection of beers they have. Service is great and the employees interact with the costumers making them feel comfortable. Overall, low key spot after a long day at work!

We stayed here at the Longview inn for a medical procedure my mom was having. We needed dinner but didn't want to spend the money to eat at the Longview restaurant so we looked for delivery! This place makes excellent pizza! Thin crust and the large was more than enough for 3 people! You can't beat the price at a... More

My son recommended this place so we tried takeout recently. The pizza is very tasty. Thin crust, with a nice zesty sauce. Reminiscent of Emma's in Huron Village, back in the day. This is basically a neighborhood bar, at the base of MIssion Hill, that now has a pizza kitchen in the rear. Craft beers are the big difference to... More

My family wanted something light while we were visiting a patient in the hospital's near Brigham's It was a short walk from the hospital zone on a nice day. Good pizza selections . A large filled 3 of us with a salad to split. Thin crust, not greasy. Beverage selection was substantial as well
