Any new or improved pizza options with delivery to Brookline?

WilderPenfield Feb 16, 2011 06:47 AM

So, it's a just a hope perhaps, but are there any new pizza options near Coolidge Corner? Or anywhere further afield with reliable delivery? Upper Crust is out for ethical reasons; we tried T Anthony and it was ok, but nothing to get excited about; ditto for Mangia. Haven't yet entered the Cleveland Circle fray -- is that our last chance? The Allston Regina's seems to be getting mixed reviews.

    I really like Pino's alot, but if I am just in the area and getting a slice I would go to presto's. Can't go wrong with either.

    I'm not a big fan of crazy dough's. They got a tremendous variety of toppings, but i think the crust is too hard, and the slice is physically too thick for my liking. Last time I ate there the top of my mouth was hurting from the sharp dough! Still though, they do have some great toppings.

      Have you tried Pizzeria Dante? It's gotten some mixed reviews here, but my roommate and I both really like it. Cheaper than Upper Crust, and the people are the nicest.

        Don't know if they deliver but Mangia in Brookline Village has very good pizza. Worth checking into.

          The Delivery is kind of spotty at times but Brookline Spa makes a really good Pizza. Depending on where in Coolidge Corner you are its a very easy walk as well.

            My office in Brookline got some Crazy Dough Pizza delivered during one of those snow days and it was pretty good but I only had a slice of the Marguerita. They are in Boston on Boylston near Mass Ave.

              Pino's in Cleveland Circle is delicious, and they deliver.

                second Pinos for best option we've had in Brookline. Also, Naked Pizza is opening in Coolidge Corner soon (if not already)...have no idea if they deliver or how it tastes but could be a promising option.

                  Third for Pino's, they have great Sicilian slices, too.

                    Naked pizza delivery tonite. just ok. not enough topping--spinach and feta. upper crust is better, but i'm boycotting, so looks like brookline doesn't have much by way of good pizza for delivery (though i haven't had pino's in years).

                      Well, I have to respectfully disagree, as I think Pino's is very good. But, then again, I don't like uc type of pizza.

                  Allston Regina is out regardless: they don't deliver.

                    I really like Deno's on Cypress St., near the JP border. Nice doughy, airy crust.

                      They're being replaced by Brother's Roast Beef and Pizza per the Tab.

                      Cambridge 1 in Fenway might deliver to Brookline, and it's delicious.
