Great pizza and friendly servers. Always love a visit to the North End! This is one of my most favorite pizza joints in all of Boston. If you ever come across it, I highly recommend stopping for lunch, or perhaps dinner. Very affordable, and is in a good location. I am likely to return there the next time I'm in Boston.
Stopped in with a group of friends for wine, due to the bar being open and we were waiting for our table to be ready across the street. The big bartender was an jerk right away. As we sat he proceeded give our group a hard time and call us names in Italian, including racial insults. Little did he know that one of our group spoke Italian and called him out on it. We decided to leave and asked for the check, he placed the check far from my reach so when I went to grab it I accidentally tipped my glass. I was able to catch my glass there was a small spill. As I tried to clean it up with my napkin he swatted my hand away and took my unfinished glass of wine. I apologized for the accident with, I am sorry to only be told in return not as sorry as he was. No pizza or wine is worth this rude behavior. especially with other pizza shops down the road.
When most other restaurants in the North End have long lines going out the door, you may have better luck at getting a seat here -- and the pizza is delicious! Good option to know about! Not fancy, but they deliver on the pizza.
It has been made clear that tourists are NOT welcome at this establishment. The big bald bartender WILL berate you, belittle you and disrespect you in ways that will boggle your mind. During my visit, he was so rude that I initially thought it was a joke - you know one of those "servers have an attitude" type places. I was sadly mistaken. This man did not want me or my family in the restaurant and made that clear when he told me he "didn't have any pizza for you." How do they stay in business? Don't locals prefer Regina's or Ernesto's or, heck, DOMINOS over this place anyway?
I'm pretty sure I've tried everything on the menu. Never ever disappointed. Great food. Great staff. Awesome drinks. Great place to sit for a few hours or just grab a slice to go.
