DETAILS

Old-school Sicilian pizza slices rule at Galleria Umberto on the North End, where the line starts about 10:30 am.

Cash only. Beer and wine available. Serving lunch Mon-Sat. Closed Sun. From Alan Richman, GQ, May 22, 2009:

"The slices are Sicilian, which means squares, thick ones, airier and lighter than most, with a subtle crunch, a splash of tomato sauce, a scattering of cheese. It represents what Boston's North End once was: bedrock Italian, absolutely Old World."


"This North End institution's thick slabs eat like a meal. But initiates should beware Umberto's novel closing-time policy: When the food's gone (usually by midafternoon), it's gone, and the employees call it a day."

- Boston magazine
