Best pizza – You must have a slice of their delicious Sicilian pizza!! It is fabulous and I haven't met one person who thinks otherwise. I'm not sure about any other food there. The pizza is a bit pricey, but it's Harvard square. Pinocchio's is sort of hidden from view, it's behind Berk's shoe store. I would recommend getting the pizza to go since the place is kind of small and gets really packed by 12pm.

So-so pizza and way too many college kids – Pinocchio's does not impress me. Not because their pizza tastes bad, but because it does nothing to be really delicious. Harvard Square employees and college kids swear by it as a cheap-eats location, but the pizza doesn't stand out. Try Crazy Dough's Pizza in the Garage instead.

Responsible for feeding Harvard Students for years. – For the three years I lived in Harvard Square, I probably went here over 150 times solely for their sicilian pizza. From plain old cheese and pepperoni to tasty zucchini or tomatos and basil, I could eat their pizza 7 days a week. I don't care for the steak and cheese sandwiches, but others order them about as religiously as I order the pizza. And since 2 sicilian slices cost about $4, it's a cheap way to eat wonderfully.

My favorite place for pizza in the world – Great sicilian pizza. Great steak and cheese. It's my favorite place for pizza on the planet.

Best Pizza in Town – If you like thick sicilian slices of pizza, this is the place to go. It cannot be beat. No ambiance, but with pizza this good, who cares?!

User review by penny411 – This is the best pizza in Cambridge, hands down. Fresh, tasty, delicious. You'll have a hard time deciding which kind to get.

Best Pizza I have ever had – I've only eaten here once - 5 years ago - and yet the taste of their incredible pizza sticks in my mouth. They are off the beaten path, very small place, but they were packed with college kids recovering from a night of partying.

I crave them every time I order pizza, I just wish they delivered. It would change my life. It is so hard to find good pizza. These guys have it. Just a plain cheese slice will do.

User review by jeffdo – I've been going to this small little hole in the since high school (late 80s/early 90s). I loved it ever since and it really hasn't changed at all. The Silician slices are to die for, and they have a wide variety including great choices for vegetarians. I agree with the other review about the cheesesteaks. Try them with everything (lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and HOTS). I know it sounds wierd on a cheesesteak, but it's one of my favorites.

Harvard Square icon pulls all the strings for a near-perfect pizza. – The Scene
Great minds of several generations have sought sustenance at Pinocchio's, or "the Noch," as local students dub this Harvard Square legend. Seating is tight at the plastic-topped tables arrayed around a support post, and traffic flow to place an order at the counter is always confused. But it's a high-energy, upbeat spot to munch a slice among the undergrads cramming Plato and Planck.

The Food
Pizza dough is made fresh daily in the tiny kitchen. The regular crust is Abruzzi-perfect--neither the blackened cracker of "gourmet" houses nor the doughy blob of pizza chains. Dough-lovers should opt for the pricier deep-dish Sicilian. Both feature a bright red sauce and adequate (rather than gooey) cheese--classics in the old style. Because the bread is so fresh, subs are stupendous, with a steak-and-cheese that could stand with the fare at Geno's in South Philly. Tasty baked ziti with meatballs easily fuels an all-nighter.
