Fast service, solid pizza not too thin not too thick. A bit salty.
🍕BIG slices! Like 1 slice is twice the size of what you’d normally get elsewhere.
Classic and more creative options available. The sausage and ricotta we got was excellent.
You can seat inside if you are lucky but be ready to be crammed.
Bathrooms available in the basement.
I had heard a lot of hype about this place but I was skeptical because I’ve been generally pretty disappointed by Boston’s pizza scene. But Ernesto’s is the real deal - this is the best slice that I’ve had in Boston, without doubt.
The slices are enormous: when I got my order, I thought they had mistakenly given me two, and a few minutes later, I watched another customer have the same reaction. The image here is what you get if you order one slice.
Plenty of choices for a slice, including some creative options. I got the fried eggplant & ricotta slice, and it was fantastic. Great browning on the bottom, flavorful crust, and toppings were crispy but not dry. All around excellent. This is the only pizza in Boston I would go out of my way for.
9.5/10. I will definitely be back.
Place is a hidden gem. Top notch pizza for a great price. Sixteen bucks for an 18 inch pie. You can dine in but it’s pretty small. A bit of a sub shop feel. Recommend grabbing it to go. We placed an order, took a 20 min walk around the north end, grabbed a bottle of red, and took it home. A+ experience
Was looking for a pizza place in North End with no wait, and came upon this place.
The place was small, but there were good number of seats available inside. I went for the cheeseburger pizza, and the slightly melted American cheese on top really added some extra flavors that you wouldn’t typically find on pizza.
Not the cheapest pizza for the quality, but it was still worth digging in.
They may not be as good as some of the well known pizza places in North End, but they are still a solid choice for a quick bite in North End.
The search stops here! Of all North end pizzerias, Ernesto's is by far my favorite! Any time I bring it to parties (which is very often) people go crazy for it and it's gone before anything else. Their pizzas are huge and oh so yummy. This is my favorite NY style pizza in Boston, no question. The dough is sturdy, airy and well seasoned. The sauce is simple but very well balanced. The people working here are lovely and always spoil me with a couple extra "red gravy" on the side. I love that they have jalapeno for a topping and these babies aren't messing around! Don't skip this gem- but careful cuz you'll be hooked.
