What's the best thing to get there? Also, is there seating at the Upper Crust in the South End?

    never get the special pizza of the day.

    Reheated upper crust pizza is really chewy :-P

      Uh, pizza? Sorry, couldn't resist. I think all their pizza is good, but I am somewhat of a purist and usually go with a plain cheese slice, or maybe pepperoni --not the slice of the day...

      Yes, there is seating there. It's a welcome addition to the neighborhood --one that was sorely lacking for good pizza!

        I agree: go simple. The one exception to the "go simple" route that I've had luck with is their garden vegetable pizza, which includes mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, broccoli and garlic, and to which I ask them to add jalapenos.

        I've gotten delivery a few times and think it's pretty good, though I have to say for delivery I prefer Mangia Pizza, which is similar in style.

          I usually get extra tomato sauce. It doesn't really make it soggy since the tomatoes are in pieces, and I find it a bit dry otherwise. I also like to add artichokes with a pesto splash.
