If you enjoy really good thin crust pizza, Upper Crust is for you. the seating area is small and pretty Spartan but the pizza is worth the less-than-posh setting.

We had Upper Crust delivered for the opening of the Olympics. I could not stop eating the pizza. It was simply delicious. I love thin crust pizza and this is one of the best.

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
