Creative toppings without a pretentious vibe. Enormous beer selection. Local flare. Movie nights. Inexpensive. What's not to love?

I have been longing for good pizza for awhile. Tried a few places always had a slice and didn't go for second. FINALLY ! I found the best pizza ever... Absolutely amazing!

I had the ULTIMATE pizza. And it was to die for! So original. So tasty. So unusual. All the ingredients go well together. It is very filling. Great for sharing. Don't forget to take the leftover slices with you. They are as good the next day. Friendly service!

Decided to have a night in while on vacation. Delivery was as expected and pizza was good. Ordered wings as well and they were just ok. Still a good alternative to getting ready and going out.

The place has a reputation for being amazing but it lacks the effort. The service is not speedy to say the least. There are plenty of pizza options but nothing to write home about. The beer list is incredible but to get something you have never seen before be prepared to pay top dollar for it...

Penguin Pizza is a very good pizzeria and bar. It sort of looks like a purely college hangout from the outside, but inside I found that the clientele were definitely of all ages (though, like anywhere in Boston, leaning more toward the young side).

Good pizza and beer in a relaxed bar atmosphere. What more could you want? The beers were quite interesting from small craft brewers around the country, and on draft. Also had other food that looked pretty decent when it went by. Convenient to Mission Hill and the Brigham & Woman's Hospital.

I love this place! I come here often and enjoy the huge selection of beers they have. Service is great and the employees interact with the costumers making them feel comfortable. Overall, low key spot after a long day at work!
