Best of Boston

1998 Best Pizza, Traditional

Pizzeria Regina

The old-school North End spot still serves up all the heavy bustle, cheap wine, and surly service required of a traditional pizza joint. And their slices are still the meanest in town: well-spiced; smoked, not greased; and impeccably proportioned. Nice pie, guys— we’ll keep waiting in line.
