We had the special Sicilian Pizza not on the regular menu but on the menu for the day. It was outstanding. I am very fussy about my pizza. The crust was very thin crisp but tender. The sauce was delicious, not too much, with just the right amount of olives, peppers & basil and a just the right amount of cheese not drowning in it like most places. My Boston Bib salad with walnut dressing was to die for. Great meal.

If you are told the wait is ten minutes it may easily creep towards a half hour. Silly us to think it might be worth it. The service was painfully slow and we had to rush through lunch to make a train-didn't even have time to wait for the check which was requested well before we needed to leave. The pizza? Oh yeah, that. It was good, period. Not worth the stress of wondering if we'd get it in time to actually enjoy it. Choked it down in a rush, pushed money at the slowpoke waitress and ran out. Honey, you didn't deserve that tip but if we waited for change we'd still be there. If you have three hours to spend at lunch this is your spot. NEVER AGAIN.

I keep going back because I like the pizza, but the service is awful. Whether I am eating in or taking out, service is slow and sloppy. A few experiences of note: when paying for a take out order, the hostess opened the pizza box, flipped two slices upside down and then closed them inside the edge of the box. When I opened it to find the slices destroyed and voiced my dissatisfaction, she replied that she was checking to make sure it was the one we ordered. Every time we dine in, there is usually one, sometimes two servers for the whole place. We wait for 20 minutes to get water and menus, 20 minutes for a pre-made salad to come out, and then 20 minutes for out pizza to come. We usually have to ask about our pizza, and we always have to ask for our check. Then we wait at least 10 minutes for the check. This has happened on both weekday and weekend evenings, as well as weekday and weekend lunches. If I were Todd English, I would be embarrassed to have my name associated with a place that is so poorly run on such a consistent basis. This place is in dire need of competent servers. And it needs to staff more than just one or two for lunch and dinner.

During a cold and driving rain we happened upon this wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The place was packed with local young and old. Not only were we treated as friends and most welcomed customers, but the entire experience was most memorable. If we can find the place, we will visit again. Highly recommend for those on the Freedom Trail below Bunker Hill Monument.

We went to dinner here with a large group, ten people. the restaurant is small, but cozy. The food was very good, but the service put it over the top. Very professional server, you could tell she has been in the service business for a while and knows what she is doing. Though the resatuarant was busy, my water glass never ran dry and she anticipated every need. If in the area again, I would return and I highly recommend.

My neice took me here during my visit to Boston, it was quite good. We got two different kinds of pizza, both were very delicious. Loved the super thin crust and the salad was a tasty little treat. As a 40 year old I found the restaurant to be a little loud, but it was quite hip for the younger crowd. Would diffinately go again.

Three of us came for dinner on a busy Thursday evening. The wait was 30 minutes, which we didn't mind, the hostess/waitress was very attentive and took care to find a place for our coats. We were seated right on time. Unfortunately the table was small, probably intended for two people. The staff brought over another chair, squeezed another place setting on the table and we all felt pretty crushed. We shared a salad and a pizza. The Greek salad would have been great had it been less salted, but it was super salty. The pizza, we got half four cheese and half eggplant, was delicious and fed the three of us with some to take home. It was challenging to eat because there wasn't much room and I was bumped into many times by other guests and the staff. Overall it was a nice experience, but I wouldn't rush back there on a busy night. I imagine it would be very pleasant if there were a bit more room to breathe.
