galleria umberto

  • t

I had some delicious take-out from Galleria Umberto on Hanover St. Did not want to ask too many questions of my hostess so am turning to all of you in the hope of some information. Is this a restaurant? I did hear my hostess say something about it only being open on Saturday's from 11am to 2pm. Also she mentioned that they are closed for the month of July.Can anyone tell me more?

  1. That place is one of the best kept secrets in Boston ! I happened to be in the area just before opening time (11am) one day, I was not alone ! There were about 20 local North End folks waiting for them to start serving ! The Pizza is the best in town, and only $.75 a slice they also serve excellent calzone's.

    From what I understand, they open at 11 daily and serve until the food runs out, almost always before the offical closing time of 3pm. If you go near noon time expect a line of at least 40-50 people (out onto Hanover Street). It does move pretty quickly though.
