I Love Italian Pizza Best - Quincy

Okay, when you are so bold to name a pizza shop I Love italian Pizza Best, you should make sure that you can actually make a good pizza. My first takeout, a few weeks ago, I thought they showed promise, just needed to ask for it well done. So, last night I ordered a shrimp scampi pizza well done and when I got it home it wasn't even close to cooked. The pizza also didn't fit in the box so they folded it over and the whole pizza was a mess. Two bites and for the first time in my life, I actually threw a pizza out, right down the garbage disposal. So for you Quincy folks, I really suggest passing on this place. I should have picked up a pizza from Darcy's on my way home from work.

  1. That may be the worst name I've ever heard for a restaurant!

    1. Where is it? I've never ever heard of it.

        It's on Newbury Ave in North Quincy. Not sure how long they've been there, definitely less than a year. I got a flyer in the mail and thought I would give them a try. If I'm doing take-out I normally would go to Carmines, but they've been hit or miss the last few times depending on who is cooking. At least with Carmines I can add a little oil and some oregano and it's good. As you can probably tell from Hiddenboston's post below, Darcy's really is my favorite, but, it's just not as convenient for last minute takeout.

          I'm very surprised to hear you had some misses at Carmines. We find there pizzas to always be right on. Not Regina's mind you, but really delicious. Definately my go to pizza in Quincy, and most of the South Shore, except the Venetian in Weymouth. Love their pizza. By the way, Alba is now making pizza, and it's not bad. Good app.
          Enjoy,

            I know, because Carmines had been consistent for the longest time. We were getting a pizza about once a week, and in the last few months, we've found that when the woman who works there was making the pizza it was never as good. The sauce was bland and it was as if she forgot the seasoning. I started adding some oil/oregano and popping it back in the oven when I got it home. When the guy makes it the pizza is as good as ever.

      2. Maybe they should have called the place "I Like Darcy's Better."

          Guess where I'm going after work! Now, I can't decide between buffalo chicken, or onion, mushroom and garlic; or maybe the beef, potato and caramelized onion.

            Have you tried Schoolhouse pizza in Quincy Center? Their food is very good, and I believe they deliver to North Quincy as well.

            1. re: mwk

              I haven't, but I know people that go and say they make a good pizza. Parking up that way is miserable, but if they deliver to North Quincy I'll definitely give them a try. to satisfy my pizza craving today, I stopped at Cafe deParis and had a Darcy's pizza, onion, garlic and sausage so I'm happy for the moment.

              1. re: Pegmeister

                They do deliver to North Quincy, but it can take quite a while to get there (they do tell you that, though), and it's usually lukewarm when it does. It's better if you pop it back into the oven for several minutes. It's the best I've had in Quincy, but I still haven't made it to Cafe de Paris or Carmines.

                1. re: Pegmeister

                  well, if you drive there, do what I do and park in the Blockbuster lot across the street. If you are just running in to pick up a pizza, it's not a problem.

          2. Speaking of pizza in Quincy, has anyone tried Unchained Pizza over on Adams St. yet? It's where Quiznos used to be, right behind Firefly's.

            We've been there a few times -- haven't been disappointed yet. Their Baja Chicken pizza is quite good.

              Thanks for the recommendation on Unchained. I live within walking distance. What's the style?

              My favorite in the area is Montillio. You can't beat their double sized slices for a quick lunch. They use very tasty sausage on their pizzas.
