Pizza Near Freedom Trail

gilohana May 4, 2010 02:57 PM

I am visiting Boston later this month with my sons, ages 7 and 10. I want to take them to walk the Freedom Trail. Lunch would be a plus. Any recommendations for good pizza somewhere along the Freedom Trail (I'm thinking that my best bet is the part of the trail that runs through the North End.

    If you around at lunch time, try Galleria Umberto. When the run out they close. Pizza is excellent and priced for a budget.

      Head to Regina's in Thacher. It is 1 block off the Freedom Trail as you would head toward Charlestown on the fringe of the North End. Fun place, very good pizza. With your sons ages, they should find it fun.

        I agree with the recommendations for Regina's and am adding a couple of what I hope are helpful FYIs. Regina's serves nothing but pizza and you can only get whole pies, not slices. There is often a line to get into the restaurant but it's well-coordinated and worth the wait.

          You can get slices at lunch during the week.

        If you do a search for pizza on this board you'll find many recommendations, but most will probably send you to Reginas. The kids will enjoy it, great pizza.

          I thought Regina's was one of the STOPS on the Freedom Trail?

              The Freedom Trail doesn't stop on Thatcher Street although it's not a far walk before you cross the Charlestown bridge.
