Best North End Pizza for lunch with kids

I've read a number of comments on the boards re: North End pizza. What do you think is the best one for lunch that is kid friendly?

Thank you.

    1. Regina, no doubt. Always tons of families in there, and the pizza itself is unmatched.

      1. Third Regina. I'd be surprised if you get any other responses.

          Fourth Regina's. Ask for your pizza well done for the best crust.

          The place is popular, often crowded with a long wait, and some folks complain about brusque service, but Barmy and I have never had any problems with service ourselves (it's hurried and it helps a lot of you're decisive and don't dither about what you want) and almost every time we go we see the staff being really sweet with kids.

            Surprise! I like to be different. My vote goes to Ernesto's. Counter service means less of a wait (sometimes a big factor with kids). The multiple varieties of available pizzas are all on display, so the kids can look at all the choices to see what they want (visualization is also sometimes a big factor with kids). Oh and the pizza is better too ;p

            Yes, I know nobody is going to agree with me, but as I said, I like to be different.

          2. I'd agree with Regina, but a close second (imho) is the Pushcart on Salem St.

            1. Lived in the North End for over 20 years - ditto Regina's.
