Regina Pizzeria, North End, Boston

Regina’s is almost 100 years old and aside from the North End location, you can find their pizza in Polcari restaurants and many malls in Massachusetts. My friends and I went on a Tuesday original Regina’s in the North End off Endicott and Thacher.

Some of our friends waited in line for 15-20 minutes at 6:30pm and there were approximately 10 people after our group. The whole house was packed solid and there were a few women in black t-shirts minding the tables.  The smell of sauce wafts through the room.

My friends ordered a pitcher of Blue Moon while they were deciding on choices of size and type of pies and end up choosing #29 Prosciutto Con Spinaci #10 Margherita (Fresh Basil).

Waitresses were folding boxes in their free moments

There was a lot of sports paraphenalia and fun music.Prosciutto Con Spinaci has Regina sauce and Ricotta cheese, spinach, prosciutto, cherry tomatoes, Mozzarella cheese and basil.

Margherita, tomato sauce, chopped basil with Mozzarella and Pecorino Romano.

The waitress was a bit huffy, although one of my friends was still eating her pizza and the rest of the table was not halfway through with their pitcher of beer, she kept asking if she gave us the check or if we were all set. We understand they are exceptionally busy and restaurants want to turn tables, however, to be overly watchful and not discreet about wanting a party to wrap up, it was quite jarring. Although the pizza is delicious, the service has much to improve upon.

The long line on our way out of the restaurant.
