England travel article with your friends...
Many pizza places turn out terrific pizza, but few, if
any in the New England region, rival the greatness of Regina Pizzeria
in the North End Italian neighborhood of Boston, Mass.
In business since 1926, the continuously bustling Pizzeria Regina has
earned local legendary status for its beyond-incredible brick oven,
Italian-style pizza and its working-class, no-frills North End
location. Quick service, a jukebox, bar, booths and communal tables in
the lively but plain-looking dining room and photographs on the wall
capturing the history of Regina's help create the magic of this classic
pizza joint. What truly makes Regina Pizzeria worthy of its landmark
presence, however, is the thin, crispy pizza with an amazing blend of
cheese and the freshest, most delicious homemade tomato sauce (with an
accent on aged romano) that we've ever sampled in New England. Toppings
are ample and superior, especially the pepperoni. We highly recommend
the Pollo Regina with tomato sauce, ricotta, parmesan, romano,
mozzarella cheese, chicken breast and roasted vegetables. And you can
never go wrong with the pepperoni. Yum!

The wait staff generally treats customers like old friends and the
value is tremendous. Two of us were able to share a delicious cheese
pizza for around $8.00. Be prepared for a wait, however. We have heard
about waits of around an hour, but, then again, we were able to get in
right away on a recent weekday at 11:30 a.m.
It's amazing to consider Regina Pizzeria's durability. If
grandparents or great grandparents grew up in the Boston area, they
might have eaten here. Who knows, New England native and former United
States President Calvin Coolidge could have very well enjoyed a slice
here. From surviving the Great Depression to the current recession,
Pizzeria Regina's business practices are as simple and effective as its
pizzas: turn out a great product, treat your customers well, and offer
good value. Regina Pizzeria has also branched out with several other
locations, but we like the North End destination best.
To any local or tourist that hasn't been to Regina Pizzeria in the
North End, we strongly recommend dining there. Deeply emdbeded into
Boston's diverse cultural history, Regina Pizzeria, more importantly,
continues to offer the best pizza around, in our opinion.
