Office Lunch Pizza Recs in Back Bay

sbs401 Nov 15, 2012 07:46 AM

Our office usually orders a dozen or so pies for a lunch every other week. We had been using Bostone, but with the news they are scheduled to close for good this weekend (and UC dead) , we are looking for a new option. Regina in Pru mall could work I suppose. Anyone else have any good suggestions in the area?

    That's sad news about Bostone.

    The Regina's in the Pru mall is sub par IMO.

    You could see if Picco could handle that volume of pies.

      No more Bosstone? Dammit. Especially with UC gone, I figured they'd flourish.

        I've actually found the Regina's in the Prudential food court to be occasionally fantastic (for slices). But it's super inconsistent, so it's also often terrible.

        VIGA is a nice quick option

        I actually really liked Bostone Pizza, too bad

        OR even order from Pizza Italia from South End http://www.pizzataliaboston.com/

          We get large orders from Viga fairly regularly, and they're in the realm of acceptable to good to my NY raised pizza palate.

          Is that Pizza Pi-er gone from Mass Ave?

          There's also Crazy Dough's, if your coworkers are into it.

            If only Otto Pizza could find a Back Bay location and settle in with great pizza. At this point I'd settle for one of their take out shops like in Harvard Square. How about a pop up slice shop Otto folks?

            Our group have been ordering from Crazy Dough, not healthy, but quite tasty for "pizza ordered at work". I love the potato-bacon.

              after taking on some Bostone Staff Crazy dough reached out and sent us a $25 gift certificate. Just went and tried:
              - Buffalo chix w/ bacon - undercooked crust, almost no heat, didn't replace red sauces just dunked tenders in buffalo sauce then chopped and threw on top, no evidence of bacon.
              - Eggplant and red pepper w/ grilled crust - char on crust was good, but forgettable pizza overall
              - Supreme - best of the lot, but just ok
              - one person got a Sicilian potato/bacon slice that looked good

              Oh and all this was after calling in order at 11:45 then arriving at 12:15 (as instructed) and having to wait another 15 minutes. (Maybe a huge lunch order went out just before we got there, but there was almost no activity while we were there)
              Best thing going for them was $5 PBR pitcher, probably won't be going back

              Not to hijack the thread, but are there any opinions on Scoozi? There's a Living Social $20 deal currently available.
